The fourth seed Lady Vikings fought a tough underdog battle against the top seed Toutle Lake Ducks last Saturday in a 57-47 loss in the 2B Regional playoffs at Mark Morris High School in Longview, Wash.
The Orcas Middle School girls seventh and eighth grade Falcon teams wrapped up their season with games last week. The eighth grade girls ended their two-year Falcon career undefeated.
It looked like it was going to be a tight game between the Lady Vikings and the Tacoma Baptist Crusaders, but the Orcas girls leapt far ahead after halftime, eventually clinching the win at 61-42. The Vikings will move on to regionals; their first game is against LaConner on Thursday.
The community is invited to cheer them on during the game in the high school gym. People are being asked to wear white.
The Lady Vikings advanced past the first round of the Northwest 2B Basketball Tournament at LaConner High School defeating the Darrington Loggers, 49-44 on Feb. 12.
