The Lake Roosevelt Lady Raiders lost to Tonasket then Liberty Bell over the weekend, and were defeated in the districts tournament last night against White Swan 41-51.
Playing the Lady Tigers in Tonasket on Friday, the Lady Raiders lost by five points, 58-53.
"We shot bad in the first half," Head Coach Wallace Pleasants said. "We got open looks, but just couldn't get the ball to fall."

Down 27-15 at the half, the Lady Raiders outscored the Lady Tigers in the fourth quarter 23-12, still five points shy. "We just ran out of time," Pleasants said.
Playing the Liberty Bell Lady Mountain Lions in Bridgeport on Saturday, Lake Roosevelt appeared tired from not having a day off, and lost 48-35.
"Nothing seemed to go our way," Pleasants said. "It becomes one of those things where it's mind over matter. It's the end of the season, everybody knows that you've got to be ready to play all the time. Everybody is making adjustments, and some of the things you do don't work."
The Ladies lost to the White Swan Lady Cougars last night in East Wenatchee 51-41, in a first-round district tournament game. Results will be posted online at http://www.grandcoulee.com, as well as in next week's Star.
The loss puts an end to the Lady Raiders season.
