It was a tough, tight contest throughout, but the Montana Lady Griz were unable to find any last-second heroics and their season has come to an end.

Northern Arizona, a team Montana beat twice during the regular season, held on for a 68-65 victory this afternoon in the quarterfinal round of the women's Big Sky Conference tournament in Boise, Idaho.

The Lady Griz were led by senior McKenzie Johnston, who yesterday was named first-team all-conference. She had 18 points in her final game for the Lady Griz. Fellow seniors Emma Stockholm and Taylor Goligoski contributed 13 and 10 points, respectively.

Always sad when a season comes to an end. Here's wishing the gals continued improvement for 2020-21.
