Remembering the Class of 2014!

Congratulations to the Class of 2014, who tonight make their final appearance as a Willamette High School student when they walk across the stage to accept their Diploma for a job well done! 

This year’s class has had many amazing accomplishments – and certainly will be remember as one of the most talented groups to ever wear a Wolverine uniform.  This admirer certainly is aware that there are notable partner’s to the success of the Class of 2014 (i.e. underclassmen) – but here’s just a few of the memories that I will share with the Class of 2014:

  • State Finals and 2nd place for WHS Volleyball Team (first ever appearance in the State Finals)
  • League and State Girls Basketball Champions (Back-to-Back State Champs)
  • League Softball Champions (first time since 1988) and Quarterfinalist in the OSAA State Tourney
  • Undefeated Dual Meet Record for WHS Girls Track Team – many State Qualifiers include League Champions Kelsie Loomis in 200M; TeAnna Brooks in Shot Put; and many other Senior State Qualifiers in other events.
  • Many All League and All State selections who have been recognized by coaches from around the state as among the Best of the Best! 

Congratulations to the Class of 2014 – a wonderful group of student-athletes who have made the most of their four year experience at Willamette High School!

Coach Brothers to Retire

Coach Paul Brothers is hanging up his whistle as the Head Coach of the Lady Wolverine Basketball program.  After 21 years at Willamette (and over 30 years in coaching Girls Basketball) - Paul Brothers is retiring to a new job – that of a full-time Grandpa!  “I’m just missing too much of my grandkids activities and thought it was a good time to just be a Grandpa”, say Paul Brothers.  “I’m going to miss the kids a great deal – but there never is a good time to hang it up – so I’m making the decision to do this now.”

Willamette’s Associate Head Coach Lance Haas has also resigned as the Girls Co-Head Coach having served at Willamette since 1997.  “It’s time for me to pursue other educational opportunities, but there is no better place to coach than Willamette High School,”, says Coach Haas.

Willamette will begin a search for a new Head Girls Basketball Coach immediately – and for the first time in a long, long time – the off-season will be gin without two of the best of the best.  Thank You to Coach Brothers and Coach Haas for their service and dedication to the Lady Wolverines.
