OROVILLE, Calif. - Butte College Women's Basketball's season has come to an end.
The Roadrunners fell to Irvine Valley 56-48 in the Elite Eight of the CCCAA State Playoffs Thursday.
While they may have lost, the team still had an impressive season. Butte College went undefeated (10-0) in league, won the Golden Valley Conference for the second straight season and made its first Elite Eight in 20 years.
"It's been a lot of years since Butte College won back-to-back titles," head coach Tyler Newton said after the regular season. "It's been about 17 years since anybody's gone 10-0. The girls made some history, which is awesome."
The Roadrunners cruised through their first two CCCAA playoff games. Butte College took down the College of San Mateo 79-52 in the second round. In the Sweet Sixteen, the Roadrunners beat Fresno City 69-42. They held the Rams to 42 points when they normally average 90.
