The Lady Cougar basketball season wrapped up last weekend with the league tournament in Battle Mountain.

The tournament kicked off with A team facing the Eureka Vandals. The Cougars fought hard but came up a few points short. The loss lit a fire of determination that sent the Cougars surging into a winning streak.

They played aggressively and as a team to work their way back up through the bracket. In the end, they landed the third place spot.

B team also hit a winning streak of their own, winning three consecutive games. They battled ferociously in the semi-final game, sending it into overtime. The Cougars would end up losing a heartbreaker by one to secure third place. Both teams made huge improvements over the course of the season. Congratulations to all the young ladies who worked hard and represented White Pine Middle School so well. Great season Cougars.
