Tigers win sixth straight, Westview, South Albany repeat
By Cliff Pfenning, Oregonsports.com

PORTLAND - Newberg, Westview and South Albany all retained state titles at the Oregon Cheerleading state finals Saturday on what was a record-setting day at Memorial Coliseum.

Three of the six divisions were decided by less that two points, and two were by less than one point, a record for most divisions being decided by such close margins.

Tualatin edged Thurston in the Coed Large division 181.80 to 181.50, earning the school its first title since 2012, and first in the coed division.

At 4A, Henley edged Newport by just 0.90 points to win only its second title, and keep the Cubs from winning their first.

Central Linn won its first title by scoring an upset of two-time champion Delphian, 161.50-160.20.

Newberg had the high score of the day at 202.40, and retained the small coed title it won last year after winning the 6A Small division for four consecutive years.

Westview had the high score for a non-coed team at 194.50 with a nearly flawless routine.

South Albany won its third-straight title at Class 5A.

Overall, a record 27 schools competed in the coed divisions.

Cheer teams gear up

Season begins drive to state championships, Feb. 10
By Cliff Pfenning, Oregonsports.com

More than 20 teams from across the state showed up to David Douglas High School for the annual Scotsmen Rumble Saturday as the state's Cheerleading teams continued to prep for the state championships, which take place at Memorial Coliseum in three weeks, and Gladstone provided a standout performance.

Moving to the Coed Small Division after winning the state title at Class 4A last year, the Gladiators nailed much of their routine, although missed enough moves that coach Shelby Tracy had a measured review.

"I'd say we probably were about a seven on a 10-point scale," Tracy, who moved to head coach this season after four years as an assistant, said.

Among the five Coed teams, Gladstone placed first, besting Milwaukie, Glencoe, Canby and Oregon City.

Westview edged Beaverton and five other schools for first in the Class 6A division results. The Dalles finished first at Class 5A and Central Linn took first in Class 3A.

GLADSTONE HITS ITS ROUTINE VIDEO

David Douglas sat out as it played host to the event. The Scots, though, figure to be one of Gladstone's top challengers having edged them in the Pacer Invitational last week and the Laker Rumble the week before. David Douglas won the state title two years ago, but finished second to Newberg last year. Newberg is headed for the all-girl Class 6A division this season.

At the Newberg Classic Saturday, wher the Tigers sat out as hosts, Lake Oswego edged Clackamas in the Class 6A performances. West Albany took the Coed Small division, South Albany won the Class 4A division and Willamina took the Class 3A division.

In the Coed Large division, Tualatin edged Lebanon and McMinnville, last year's state champion, for its second win in three weeks. Tualatin last won a state title in 2012.

Aloha, which has won three state titles and finished second at Class 6A last year, has a competition win from last week.

Most teams will be in action Jan. 27 at either Clackamas or Sheldon in Eugene, and then Salem or Tualatin, Feb. 3.

 

 

 

McMinnville finally steps up

Grizzlies win first cheerleading state title
By Cliff Pfenning, oregonsports.com

PORTLAND – McMinnville officially joined the ranks of the state's elite cheerleading programs Saturday by winning it's first state title in the annual OSAA championship at Memorial Coliseum.

The Grizzlies upset four-time defending champion Thurston to win the Coed Large division, setting off a massive celebration amongst the teams athletes and coaches.

In the all-day competition, Newberg won it's fifth consecutive title, edging David Douglas for the Coed Small title, while Westview returned to the ranks of title winners in the 6A division after a five-year layoff.

South Albany defended its title at 5A, Gladstone won at 4A after finishing second last year and Delphian of Sheridan defended its title in the 3A division.

McMinnville's program has been on the cusp of a title for years, finishing second in 2009, '13 and last year. But, the win this year was somewhat out of the blue as the team had finished second in competitions five times in January to three different teams: Centennial, Lebanon and Thurston. Saturday, the Grizzlies performed near flawlessly, and edged the Colts 181.40 to 178.20 in overall judging. Lebanon finished third, and Centennial placed fifth behind Hidden Valley.

The title was the first in an OSAA sport or activity since the girls swim team won in 2004.

Westview won five title in six years through 2012, but crosstown rival Aloha won three of the next four years at 6A. Saturday, Westview edged Aloha 190.50-180.90.

Newberg won the past four years in the 6A Small division, but moved to the Coed Small division this year after adding a male teammate, who girls on the team had been urging to join for three years, they said. Moving to that division put the Tigers up against David Douglas, which won the division last year, and had won at 6A Large in 2015.

Although David Douglas had a strong performance, scoring 200.70, Newberg hit the day's top score at 210.90. South Albany had the second highest score at 204.40, winning by 21 points over The Dalles.

South Albany had the day's top score for its overall routine, edging David Douglas in that category 59-58.

Gladstone's win at 4A reversed last year's top finishers as the Gladiators beat defending champion Sweet Home by just 0.20 points: 175.80-175.60. Henley placed third at 172.20.

Delphian's performance, scoring 170.30, would have put it in the top five in the next highest divisions despite having only one senior on its roster.

Scots move into the title clubhouse

David Douglas wins its first state cheerleading title
Feb. 14, 2015 / By Cliff Pfenning, Oregonsports Journal

PORTLAND - In what amounted to a historic upset, David Douglas won its first cheerleading state title Saturday, upsetting traditional champions Westview and Aloha in a tightly-contested Class 6A/5A large team finals Saturday at Memorial Coliseum.

The Scots performed a near-flawless routine, then celebrated wildly without knowing their fate for more than an hour.

Westview also performed near-flawlessly, but judges ended up handing the title to David Douglas in the closest result of the day, 66.22 to 65.75.

The win moved the Scots up from second last year, when they lost to Aloha by more than four points. Aloha finished third Saturday.

In other finals, Newberg won the Class 6A Small division for the third-straight year, while Thurston defended its Coed title and Springfield won the Class 5A Small division after finishing second a year ago. Klamath Union repeated as Class 4A champion, and Pleasant Hill won the Class 3A title, having not competed last year.
