The march to the state tournament by the Clark Fork Lady Mountain Cats came to an end with a loss to Ennis, 54-33. The top-teams fought for second place and a trip to Butte during a challenge game on Feb. 26. The Lady Cats already placed their mark in the school’s history book by winning the championship at the District tourney. It was the first win for the 3-year-old Alberton/Superior co-op.

They placed another mark in the history box by winning third place at the Divisional tournament, but their aspirations were focused on the next step to the big show.

At half-time the Mustangs only led by three points, 25 to 22. But the Cats suffered several tough calls from the referees in the second half and lost three of their starters who fouled out. In the third quarter Mustangs had put up 12 points to the Cats 6, and in the fourth quarter they put up another 15 to the Cats 5. In the end, Hailey Kelly scored 12 points, Madison Mask 7, Montanna Baughman 5, Kenzie Mueller 4, Madison Lommen 3 and Margaret Parkin 2.

The boys state tournament was held in Butte last weekend, where the Arlee boys won their 55th straight game and the state championship over Manhattan Christian, 66-58. The girls state tournament will be held this weekend in Butte.
