Falcons win 5A girls basketball championship

La Salle took home the 2019 OSAA OnPoint Community Credit Union 5A girls basketball state title on Saturday night, defeating Springfield 55-48 in the championship game at Oregon State University's Gill Coliseum in Corvallis. 

This is the Falcons' third 5A state girls basketball title since 2015, and their third consecutive appearance in the championship game.

Three Falcons were named to the All-Tournament teams.
  • Alyson Miura '19 (unanimous) - First Team
  • Addison Wedin '21 - First Team
  • Emily Niebergall '20 - Second Team
The win extends the Falcons' legacy in high school girls basketball. They won their first state championships in 1981 and 1984 under Jeff Gray and Greg Stiff, respectively.
 
Since Kelli Wedin became head coach in 2012, the Falcons have been champions or co-champions of their conference every year.
