Willamette Takes Home Second Place Trophy

Willamette's Lady Wolverines manage smiles after a second place finish at state.

With its only losses of the season coming against Springfield and its 6’5” All-American, Willamette resorted to a bold strategy in a rematch with the Millers in the Girls 5A State Championship game.

The result was another loss to Springfield, 16-7 in a memorable contest that left WHS with the second place trophy.

The Lady Wolverines used a stall tactic in an attempt to shorten the game, including holding the ball near midcourt the entire second quarter on the way to a 4-0 halftime deficit.

The tactic kept WHS close but the Wolverines’ offense never got going, with their first field goal coming in the 4th quarter. Willamette center Tori Mahaffie was also lost in the first quarter to an ankle injury.

Junior Brittany Glassow and sophomore Lexi Bando were named all-state first team selections.
