The last of Oregon City’s USA Today national title teams didn’t have the depth of the 1996 title squad, but it was equally dominant behind senior forward Brianne Meharry (Oregon), senior point guard Ashley Smith (Vanderbilt) and junior forward Lindsey Yamasaki (Stanford).  The Pioneers 26-0 won by an average margin of 40.6 points against Oregon teams, including 22.0 in four state tournament games.  They beat Westview 60-39 in the final.
