Solano’s season concludes with loss to Laney

For the second time in two weeks, the Solano College women’s basketball team fell to Laney College in Oakland. This time, the Falcons fell to the Eagles 58-48 in the semifinals of the Bay Valley Conference tournament.

Solano, the four-time defending conference champions and reigning conference tournament champs, were unable to hang with Laney down the stretch. The Falcons were solid in the first half and led 26-24 at the break despite shooting just 36 percent from the field.

The Eagles used their athleticism to pull away in the second half, getting second-half opportunities on offense and forcing the Falcons into 30 turnovers in the game.

Shannon Rankin, playing in her final game in a Solano uniform, led the Falcons with 20 points and 7 rebounds. Presley Neufeld hit three 3-pointers and finished with 12 points, 5 assists and 2 steals. Marissa Dunn had eight points and 13 rebounds.

Solano finishes the season with a 17-12 overall record. The Falcons have recorded seven straight winning seasons and 19 in the program’s history.
