With all regular season fall sports coming to an end, playoffs begin with the Tigard Tigers representing their school with pride. In the first round of playoffs, Tigard girls soccer beat Lake Oswego 1-0 and will face Westview today, Nov. 5 in the second round. Tigard girls stand above everyone with their rank of first in league and 16th in the nation. See them in action at 7 p.m. on the THS soccer field.

Boys soccer was ranked first heading into playoffs, but ended with a disappointing 2-1 loss in first round of playoffs to South Medford. The team had hoped to go farther into playoffs but unfortunately their season has come to an end.  Also representing the Tigard boys, football earned their third Pacific Conference Championship and will play their first round of playoffs Friday, Nov. 8 against Gresham at the THS stadium at 7 p.m. The team goes into playoffs with an undefeated record and have their eyes set on playing in the state championship game.

At districts two weeks ago, boys cross-country placed fifth and the girls took home first place. Junior John “JJ” Caufield finished 8th and joined the girls at the state championships in Eugene this past weekend. The girls placed ninth in state with junior Elizabeth “Ellie” Dean placing 58th and junior Hannaly Duff-McGaughey close behind in 61st. Caufield placed 70th in the boys race.
