Tyler McNeley shoots the ball over St. Mary’s players on Friday, Feb. 10.

The LHS girls basketball squad closed out the regular season with three impressive wins — two of them in front of a fired-up hometown crowd — and look to be heading into the 3A-5 Far West League playoffs ranked #2 just behind the #1 ranked Sutherlin Bulldogs. The Lady Honkers are ranked #8 overall by OSAA while the Bulldogs are ranked #2 overall. The Lady Honkers (22-3) went 14-1 in league play this season — that only loss being to the Bulldogs — and if their level of play here in the last three games is any indication of how they will perform during playoffs, the competition should be nervous.

On Tuesday, Feb. 7, Lakeview traveled to Medford for a showdown with the Cascade Christian Challengers (13-11) and took control of the contest right out the gate. “We started off strong,” Head Coach Cody Blair remarked. “It was 19-1 in the first period.” After that opening surge, though, LHS made the mistake of settling down and allowed Cascade Christian to find their flow and make a game of it.
