Lassen beat previously-undefeated College of Marin 52-51 in the championship game. Down 41-40 with seven minutes to go, Lassen rode a spurt to lead 52-48 with 15 seconds left.
Kirby, who is being recruited by a host of Division I schools, again scored a team-high 22 points and Borella added 12. Mack scored 11. Kirby was named tournament MVP and Borella also received all-tournament honors.
"Obviously, it was a good tournament for us," Lassen head coach Mark Nareau said. "Jasmere played great and really helped our offense in critical situations. Jasmine also played well. It's nice to have supported our high ranking in the state and Northern California with a tournament title."
It was the first time Shasta had lost its tournament.
