San Marcos CA— Throughout the 2017 CIF San Diego Division V Girls Basketball, the 11th seed Lady Firebirds (10-14, 2-8) from Pacific Ridge High School, in Carlsbad, were known for their Cinderella wins and upsets during the playoffs. From the first round of 16 defeating 6th seed Foothills Christian by a 40-37 score, to the quarter final round where they defeated 3rd seed High Tech School from Chula Vista, to the semi finals where they defeated 2nd seed Monarch by a 39-31 score, they fought an uphill battle.

Their magical run came to an end in the finals where they were defeated by the Lady Eagles of Marantha Christian(19-6, 6-4) by a very close 68-61 score, snapping the Lady Firebirds 4 game win streak.

Reid Dinning and Kimberly Cheung each contributed with 20 points.
