Feb. 28 — Round one of the Northern Section Division IV High School Girl’s Basketball Playoffs was a breeze for the Lady Grizzlies.
The Lassen ladies hosted Gridley High School in the Cave on Tuesday, Feb. 25, and sent Gridley packing with a 64-48 loss.

The Lady Grizzlies moved on to play the Anderson High School Lady Cubs in Anderson on Thursday, Feb. 27. Lassen narrowly lost its last game against Anderson, so Jessica Larson, Lassen High School varsity girl's basketball coach, said she was looking forward to a good game.
It turns out the Lady Grizzlies didn’t pull off the upset. The Lady Cubs put an end to Lassen’s playoff run, sending the Lady Grizzlies home with a 60-41 loss.
The team ended it’s season with a 12-15 overall record.
