Following up on La Salle Prep’s triumphant fall 2011 season with its first state championships in football and chess, the success of the winter and spring seasons allowed the Falcons to set another school record. La Salle’s Athletic Director Brian Crawford congratulated La Salle’s 2011-2012 teams and clubs on their amazing year, “I believe this is the first time in school history that throughout the entire year we have had representation from every Falcon athletic team in the state playoffs.”
This spring alone the Falcons claimed district championships in baseball, boys’ and girls’ tennis, boys’ golf and boys’ track and field. Senior outfielder Erich Regan, Oregon City, was voted Baseball Player of the Year for the Tri-Valley Conference. Four other teammates joined him on the first team, Trey Norton, Sean Hayes, Sam Eichorn and Zach Nusbaum. Grant Studdard, Cody Farnes and Sam Davis were selected to the second team. First year head coach Mike Reed was named coach of the year. The Falcon softball team reached the state tournament for the first time in over a decade by defeating Crook County in Prineville by a score of 7-5 during a play-in game. Loryn Williams and Annie Dulwick were selected to the first team for softball while Makenzie Cook, Paige Bell and Ellie Mulvaney received honorable mention.
Earlier this school year La Salle claimed conference championships in volleyball, football, boys' cross country, girls' cross country, and boys' basketball.
La Salle teams and individuals also reached state competition in boys’ and girls’ soccer, boys’ and girls’ swimming, girls’ basketball, girls’ golf, girls’ track & field, choir, boys’ lacrosse, speech, ski, snowboarding and racquetball. With more than 80% of La Salle students participating in athletics or clubs, this year’s victories represent school wide achievement. With this student success comes exciting upgrades to the school’s campus. La Salle will unveil its new stadium in fall 2012, with grandstands that will seat nearly 1,000 fans to cheer on their defending state championship football team.
