They managed one win on Friday against Stevensville but still fell three games to one.

Polson and Columbia Falls were the two north teams to advance to state.

Overall, Whitefish went 10-7 on the season for third place in Northwest A competition.

The team graduates seniors Moore, Luci Ridgeway, Marey Akey, Hope Brown and Payton Reisinger.
