  • The Mount Shasta, Weed and Fall River girls basketball teams all won two games and lost to Yreka during the 2013 Holiday Tournament in Mount Shasta.
    Yreka's girls won the six-team tournament's title, and Fall River claimed second place because its two-point loss to Yreka was closer than the Bears and Cougars came – but not by much.
    Yreka defeated the host Bears in Saturday's final girls game, 46-42.
    The Miners defeated Weed Friday afternoon 35-29, a day after scoring a 53-51 win over Fall River.
    Mount Shasta put it together in the second half of a 53-39 victory over Tulelake Saturday night, as senior Tori Hansen led the way with 20 points and senior Kathryn Andrus scored 10.
    The Bears cruised to a 41-20 win in their tournament opener over Biggs Thursday, led by senior Sejay Sarti and junior Ashley Cain, who scored 9 points each.
    Hansen and Cain were the Bears' two all-tourney picks. Sarti won the girls three-point shooting contest Friday.
    Weed opened the Holiday Tournament with a 51-36 victory over Tulelake, then defeated Biggs Saturday morning, 50-21.
    Junior Destinee Jones led the Cougars with 12 points against Biggs and 13 against Tulelake.
    Senior Jillian Neel scored 15 of the Cougars' 29 points against Yreka, including a 3-point basket that cut the Miners' lead to two points with less than a minute to play. Yreka held a 21-5 lead at half time.
    Neel scored 10 points against Biggs and 6 against Tulelake and was the Cougars' all-tourney pick for offense.
    Junior Tia Palangvanh, who averaged about a dozen rebounds per game, was Weed's all-tourney pick for defense.
    The Cougars are scheduled to play their first home game of the season Tuesday night against Tulelake.
