COACH OF THE YEAR
Josh Grotting, Sutherlin
Grotting won his third state title and completed his second undefeated season in a row when his Bulldogs beat Henley 51-46 in the Class 4A state championship to win their 56th consecutive game. Only two other teams in the state’s history have finished back-to-back seasons undefeated (Oregon City in 1996-97 and Joseph, which did it three times from 1981 to 1983). Grotting has a record of 209-39 at Sutherlin and 318-67 overall in 18 seasons. He’s been to the state tournament in eight of his nine seasons, finishing the regular season unbeaten five times and reaching the semifinals six times.
Player of the Year
Katie McWilliams, G/F, South Salem, 6-2, Sr.
McWilliams was named the state’s Gatorade Player of the Year — and that was before she led the Saxons to their first state title since 1976 with a win over St. Mary’s Academy in the Class 6A final. McWilliams, who has a 3.89 GPA, has signed with Oregon State and is rated as the nation’s 40th-best recruit, according to ESPN. She was averaging more than 15 points, five rebounds, three assists and a steal and a block per game before the state tournament began.
