Seven days after cruising past fourth-ranked Marshfield in a non-league game, the No. 3-ranked Astoria girls basketball team opened the post-season Saturday afternoon with a decisive 69-39 victory over 16th-ranked Mazama .

The win brings an official end to a 21-year absence from the state tournament for the Lady Fishermen. Astoria would have been a part of the 2020 state tournament, prior to its cancellation.
