The varsity lady Bengals basketball team finished its season Feb. 10 with a season record of 17-8.
Starting the season Jan. 22, the Lady Bengals took on Lake City where they lost to the Timberwolves 51-57. They also played Lake City Feb. 2 and Feb. 8, when they lost 42-24 and 47-42.
“We were determined to beat Lake City because that’s where our season ended last
year,” said senior wing, Alyssa Ralstin.
  In addition in their determination to beat Lake City, the Lewiston Bengals were determined to beat their closest rivals, the Clarkston Bantams. The Bengals achieved that goal at the annual Golden Throne Game Jan. 26, where they beat CHS 53-41 at the Lewis-Clark State College Activity Center in Lewiston.     
“It’s always a good feeling beating Clarkston. It’s something I’m really going to miss” after graduating said senior post, Cameron Cady.   
  After the second game against Lake City, the Bengals took on Post Falls DATE, when they fell at the district championship 37-75.
  Wrapping up the basketball season, the Bengals took on the Boise High School Feb. 10 at Grangeville High School. They fell 52-56.
  “I felt like we played well… Our first half, shots were falling [and] we seemed to have the momentum,” said senior wing, Morgan Genzer. “But coming out of the locker room second half they made more plays to win and we had a hard time playing against seven players.”
  The Bengals did not end up placing at the 2018 State
