The Lady Raiders secured their place in the regional tournament by defeating a team that had beaten them by nine points in January.
The Lady Raiders, from District 6, played District 5's White Swan Lady Cougars Saturday in Quincy in a tense district crossover playoff game.
LR pulled off a seven-point victory, 55-48, to send the team to the regional tournament on Saturday, at Mark Morris High School in Longview.
LR led by a slim margin most of the game, but the Cougars tied it twice at 33 and 36 in the fourth quarter until the Lady Raiders pulled away.
The Lady Raiders, ranked 15th out of 16 teams in the tournament, will play the number-10 ranked Mossy Rock team, at 12 p.m. on Feb. 29.
A win there would mean the Lady Raiders would play in the WIAA Hardwood Classic March 4 at 10:30 a.m. at Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena against the loser of a game between Columbia Burbank and La Conner. A loss in Longview puts an end to LR's season.
