As the smaller schools get closer to wrapping up their regular seasons, we take a look at the Elite 8 teams in the state regardless of classification.

  1.  1.  Seaside    4A   17-2           Last Week:  Win vs Banks; Win at Astoria

The Seagulls took the inside track to the Cowapa League title with their 60-51 victory over Banks in front of a sold out gym.  The two time defending champions appear to be getting better week after week.  Seaside gets contributions from a variety of guys but senior guards Chase Januik & Payton Westerholm as well as junior wing Ryan Hague provide reliable scoring & experience.

2.  Banks     4A  19-2         Last Week:  Lost at Seaside; Win vs Tillamook

The Braves battled Seaside for 32 minutes on the road & proved that their Valentines Day rematch should be a great one.  Junior wing Jacob Slifka & senior post Blake Gobel, who recently committed to Eastern Washington for football lead the way for Banks who is currently ranked #1 in the OSAA computer rankings.

3.  Columbia Christian     2A      21-2        Last Week:  Won at Neah-Kah-Nie; Won vs #5
