Mason Girls Outlast Lakota West in "Sweet Sixteen" Regional Final


In a battle of Ohio's best basketball programs in the OHSAA Regional Semi-Finals, something had to give. In what had been projected to be a very close game with little margin for error, the Comet - Firebird showdown turned out to be just that...a true basketball classic. Playing for the right to move on to the "Elite Eight" both teams played outstanding defense along with up-tempo fast paced offense to give a huge spectator following more than their money's worth. When time ran out, the Mason Comets came away with a hard fought 44-43 victory over league rival and GMC co-champion the Lakota West Firebirds.
