Regis (16-12) led 30-25 late in the third quarter after back-to-back 3-pointers by senior guard Abigail Frith and freshman wing Genevieve Frith, but the Eagles (17-11) scored the next seven points.

Regis regained the lead at 38-37 on sophomore guard Kirsten Koehnke’s free throw, but East Linn Christian closed the game on a 6-0 run to earn the fourth-place trophy.

The Rams, who won four consecutive 2A state championships from 2011-14, took home the sixth-place trophy.

Koehnke led Regis with 14 points and senior post Paige Rickman added 10.

Regis defeated fellow Tri-River Conference member East Linn Christian in three previous meetings this season. Rachel Busek and Sydney Nichol scored 14 points apiece for the Eagles.

“We just didn’t have a great offensive day,” Regis coach Stuart Alley said. “The kids worked hard to get here, but we’re disappointed obviously.”
