The Oregon state high school team championship was contested Friday and Saturday, March 11-12 in Sherwood, Oregon. A total of 219 players participated (WAY up from the 171 in 2010 and 2009) in four different sections: Varsity Team, JV Team, Open Team, and Individual.
In the Varsity section, Cottage Grove played a fantastic tournament. After defeating Willamette High School (Eugene) in the first round, they went on to beat the top three seeds in the next three rounds: 3-2 over Clackamas, 3.5-1.5 over Crescent Valley, and 3-2 over Pleasant Hill. In the final round, they tied with defending champion and fourth seed Lake Oswego 2.5-2.5.
Crescent Valley fielded an all-freshman team which came in second place overall in the Varsity division. (Rumor has it that next year’s team will be even stronger.)
Defending champion Lake Oswego settled for third.
