Congratulations to the Wilsonville High School Wildcats Football Team: Brand New State Champions!

(registerguard.com) EUGENE -- Wilsonville would have preferred a shutout.

But the top-ranked Wildcats settled for a perfect season Saturday as they overwhelmed Tri-Valley League rival Sherwood in the second half to pull away for a 37-13 victory in the OSAA Class 3A state championship football game at Autzen Stadium.

Ranked No. 1 beginning with the first preseason poll in September, Wilsonville finished with a sterling 14-0 record, the school's first state title in football and a small measure of redemption after losing to Marist in last year's 3A finale.
