Back-to-back tournament losses end Cinderella season


David Noble

The Medical Lakes girls' magical basketball journey ended when they reached into their bag of tricks last weekend at the Sun Dome in Yakima and found it empty.

Playing in their first state tournament championship round in nearly 30 years, the Cardinals fell to a familiar foe, La Salle, 65-61 in overtime, a loss that dropped them to fifth place in the 1A event.

But it was a trophy none-the-less for Medical Lake, who in 1991 ended up fourth. "(I) wish it would have ended a little better, but to place fifth is still pretty darn good," head coach Kyle Lundberg said. Medical Lake finished the season 23-2.
