The Portola High School girls’ basketball team advanced all the way to the Division V Northern Section championship in Chico last Saturday by winning three home playoff games, including an exciting three-point victory in the semifinals against Colusa Tuesday, Feb. 28.
In the championship match, Portola lost 57-27 to top-ranked Hamilton, giving the Tigers the Northern Section runner-up award.
The Tigers, now in the state tournament as the ninth seed in the north, travel to eighth-seeded International High School in San Francisco Wednesday, March 7, for the first round of the Division V state championship brackets.
