Playing against host-school and undefeated Washington County on Saturday night, the second-seeded Valley Heights girls’ basketball team upset Tigers, 31-28, to win the Twin Valley League tournament.

In a tight back-and-forth game, Valley Heights (11-1, 5-1 Twin Valley) went to halftime tied with the Tigers at 11, but took a four-point lead into the fourth quarter and staved off Washington County’s attempts at a rally late.

Sidney Blackburn scored 14 points, including two 3-pointers, while Brandi Roepke scored 12 points and Lesley Frohberg added five.

Valley Heights gets back to regular league play this week, traveling to Linn on Tuesday.
