Members of the California Pinto varsity basketball team, coaches and managers proudly displayed their district championship banner Saturday morning at the high school before boarding the chartered bus to head to Springfield for Class 3 Quarterfinal play against Mt. Vernon. After winning the district title (the first since 1990 for the Pintos), California went on to defeat Blair Oaks 50-47 at Class 3 Sectionals March 7 at Rolla, then lost 55-45 to Mt. Vernon Saturday at Class 3 Quarterfinals at Springfield to end the season.
