Oregon Junior State Champions
Congratulations to the Gladstone High School Junior State Team as they defeated Scappoose, 10-2, to capture the 2014 Oregon Junior State Championship held at Western Oregon University in Monmouth. The team was coached by Casey Webster, Rob Staehle and Mark Rourke. The Gladiators, made up of sophomore, junior and seniors at Gladstone High School, went a perfect 4-0 in the summertime classic, which dates back to 1950. All of the Gladstone players have previously played in the Gladstone Junior Baseball program and their hard work finally payed off with a State Championship!
Congratulations to the Gladstone Midget National Team, coached by Robert Marroquin, as they swept the Clackamas County Tournament and advanced to the Junior Baseball Organization State Championships, where they finished in 4th Place. It was a very exciting year for everyone. Way to go boys!
