The Lady Raiders' season came to an end last week as the Tonasket Tigers won in overtime 60-56 at the District 5-6 tournament in East Wenatchee.

The Thursday night game at Eastmont High School ended the 2016 season for the Lady Raiders, who present an overall win-loss record of 14-8.

Lake Roosevelt will lose Lachelle Bearcub and Jocelyn Moore to graduation this spring and will be looking to the many returners to fill in.

The Lady Raiders were taken aback by the aggressive Tigers and fell behind early. Rebounding became an issue as Tonasket was given many second or third chances to score. LR started coming back into the game, but Tonasket won the rebounding game in the first half.

In the second half, Tonasket began to make multiple mistakes, and LR took advantage to bring the game close. Soon, it became a running game with the Tigers and Lady Raiders exchanging shots, neither able to control the game. Then, in the fourth quarter, the Lady Raiders got their first lead.

At the end of regulation, the Lady Raiders had lost the lead and the Tigers knotted it up at 48 all. In overtime, Tonasket hit the shots while the Lady Raiders were unable to outscore them.

The Tiger win advances Tonasket to the regional tournament.

For the Raiders, Mariah Boyd had a great night, scoring 20 points. Bearcub scored 11 points and was the second highest scorer for LR.

Lady Raiders received all-league nods from the Central Washington 2B North. Bearcub was named to the first team. Bearcub was the leader of the Lady Raiders and helped lead the team to the third place in the North and to a district win. Kayla St. Pierre made second team and will be returning next season to try and fill Bearcub's shoes. Mysti Dick was given an honorable mention.

Lady Raiders honored by their school for their academic success during the season are Olivia Battise, Lachelle Bearcub, Raven Boyd, Lily Clark, Jaylyn Kensler, Olivia Ludwig, Loryn Moore, Kelsie Olbricht, Khani Priest, Rainydawn Vargas-Thomas, and Hannah Wapato.
