For the second consecutive year the Willamette Wolverines are the 5A Girls Basketball champions.
Never trailing in the title game, Wil-Hi beat Corvallis 63-54 in front of large, supportive crowd at Matt Knight Arena.
Lexi Bando led the way with 29 points and Sami Osborne hauled in seven rebounds as both earned First-Team All-Tournament honors. Sophomore Autumn Baumgartner was named to the second team.
The win is Willamette’s 4th state championship in the last eight years, with two previous title runs in 2007 and 2009, along with a runner-up finish in 2012.
Wednesday morning’s Register Guard includes this story concerning a Shasta teacher.
At this point Bethel School District is only able to share that the teacher, Jody Allard, was placed on Administrative Leave by the District on Tuesday morning, March 4. Because this is a confidential personnel matter, the District is not permitted to share anything more at this time.
The published report explains that law enforcement is involved. The Eugene Police Department advises anyone with a law enforcement concern regarding this matter to contact Bethel’s School Resource Office, Steve Timm at 541-461-6401 ext. 4097.
A stage light that was somehow turned into a curtain caused a small fire in Powers Auditorium at Willamette High School Monday night.
The brief incident forced the evacuation of the auditorium shortly before a scheduled Cascade Middle School band concert.
By the time firefighters arrived the flames had been extinguished thanks to the quick action of the event’s auditorium manager Tom Coates and Cascade’s assistant principal Dean Nussbaum.
The stage curtains will have to be replaced and the smoke exhausted from the auditorium, but no one was injured and the damage was relatively minor.
Spring cleaning means it’s time for Bethel’s School Surplus Sale, this Saturday, March 8th, 8:00-2:00 at Cascade Middle School.
The giant garage sale will include chairs, desks, file cabinets, book cases, dividers, rolling carts, science equipment, overhead projectors and other school-related odds and ends…even some kitchen sinks.
None of the equipment is currently being used by the school district and storage space is running out.
All proceeds will benefit the Bethel Education Foundation.
