HISTORY OF CHAMPIONS

This season, Auburn appeared in the state playoffs for the 25th time, but the Trojans never won the state title – and did not even go into the championship game – until Saturday night. The Trojans defeated many years of statistical power at Rainier Beach – a nine-time champion – to close their historic season.

DID YOU KNOW?

Auburn’s championship race this weekend halted a series of nine consecutive tournaments during which the Metro 3A League brought out the state’s ultimate winner. Rainier Beach (four titles), Garfield (three), Nathan Hale (one) and O’Dee (one) won titles in this segment. The last time before Saturday the Metro League team did not win the title was in 2011, when the Lakes led Bellevue. It was also only the second time since that 2011 title game that there were no two Metro League teams in the championship. Another break in this strip was in 2019, when Mount Spokane moved forward.
