No it wasn’t groundhogs day, just the same two Cowapa powers squaring off once again in the state title game and once again Seaside returned to the Oregon coast with the blue state title trophy while Valley Catholic made the short trip home as runner ups.  The Cowapa League continued its dominance of the 4A level, with no signs of slowing down next season.

Here is our look at the players who stood out this season and earned recognition on the Prep Hoops Oregon All State Teams:

Damian Ball                        6’7             Post            SR                   Cascade

Corey Stover                        6’7             Post            JR                  Marshfield


Our way to early look at the Top 5 for the  2018-19 season:

  1.  Seaside – Returns virtually every player from their state championship team.
  2. Banks – Loses Dalton Renne, but return two players from our all state list plus several key role players.
  3. Marshfield – State tournament team that returns the twin towers of Stover & Webster.  Their size will prove a challenge for opponents.
  4. North Bend – Return almost the entire roster, including all state player in Jayden Frank.
  5. Valley Catholic – Lose 3 key seniors, but return a deep group of underclassmen and the style that has cultivated a winning culture.

Others to Watch:  Philomath, Lagrande, Stayton
