The EBI Lioness team was 4-0 throughout the tournament, beating teams from Nevada, California and winning the title game against Northern California Heat. The team has played together for the last two years, in the fall and spring. The team travels, largely to out of town tournaments in cities like Spokane, Oregon, Yakima and Reno. Next year the team plans to play in Southern California.

The Lionesses are coached by Felicia Johnson.
