Our basketball season has unfortunately come to an end. It was a sad season for us this year with many injuries but we are glad we were able to play and to have the support of our wonderful community. Our boys played Plumas Charter on Feb. 3rd and won 49-45. Herlong then came here and they put up a very good fight and only lost by 3 points; 47-44. Elk Creek made their way here on Feb. 7th and our boys made us very proud winning 71-40. We headed to Loyalton on Tuesday the 11th and we gave it our all. We played very hard and closed a gap of 38 to a gap of only 20 points. Our final games ended at Westwood. They were 2 very competitive games for both the girls and boys. We put up a hard fight. Our girls team had a great shooting in the 2nd quarter stopping Westwood to only score 2 points while Downieville scored 14. We unfortunately lost 33-26. The boys played an exceptional game and only lost 50-46. Our Jr. High Team as well had their own Basketball Tourney on Saturday February 1st.
