The Lady Raiders won one and lost two basketball games last week in the first of two three-game weeks in a row.

The Lady Raiders defeated Tonasket at home on Jan. 5 by the final score of 51-39, which improved Lake Roosevelt's league win-loss record to 4-0.

Then on Thursday LR traveled to Brewster to take on the number-three Lady Bears, who were looking to come back from a 40-point loss to Okanogan. LR stayed in the game, but the Lady Bears built too much of a lead for LR to overcome. Brewster won 48-34.

After the loss to Brewster, the Lady Raiders were looking to rebound themselves against the Lady Shockers at Waterville on the Saturday. But the Lady Shockers shocked the Lady Raiders, jumping out early and winning by a big margin, 54-29.

Tuesday night, LR was scheduled to host the undefeated Okanogan Bulldogs at Gailord Nelson Gym. The Bulldogs have been averaging 70 points a game, while only allowing opponents 29.

Tomorrow the Lady Raiders will travel to Liberty Bell for a 6 p.m. game against the Mt. Lions. The Mt. Lions are 2-8 on the season; those two wins were over Cascade-Leavenworth (45-31) and Bridgeport (61-21).

On Saturday, the Lady Raiders travel again, this time to Pateros for a 4 p.m. game against the Nannies. The Nannies are having an up-and-down season to this point.
