Portland Interscholastic League Foundation Golf Tournament The purpose of the Portland Interscholastic League Foundation (PILF) is to generate resources to support athletics and our serve students enrolled in the Portland Public School (PPS) district. One in three PPS students, grade 6-12, participate in PIL athletic programming. Over the past five years, the PIL has grown from providing opportunities for 5,500 student-athletes to providing opportunities for over 13,000 student-athletes. The largest growth areas have been the increased participation of female student athletes and increased opportunities for lower income students as we seek to decrease the inequities that exist. The mission of the PILF is to continue to generate funds in order to support the ever increasing participation of students in athletics. One of their major fundraisers in the PIL Golf Tournament at the Reserve on June 12th . For registration, please email or call Heather Egan email@example.com / 971-803-8179 Recognizing Senior Student-Athletes On June 3rd at the Senior Assembly, we will be recognizing our senior student-athletes and their accomplishments. We will recognize our Male and Female Scholar Athletes, Male and Female Paul McCall Student-Athletes, and our Male and Female Student Athletes of the Year. A huge thanks goes out to Elena Miller and all the work she is doing to capture some really great pics of our student-athletes. You can see her work at the following sitehttps://www.flickr.com/photos/63953015@N06/albums Week Re-Cap Our Baseball Program traveled to Jesuit for the 1st round of the OSAA State Playoffs on Monday. We couldn’t quite get the bats going in our efforts and came up short losing 4-0. The team had a tremendous year and should be proud of all of their accomplishments and their year together. The program is young and brings back a solid group of returners. A huge thanks to the coaching staff for providing a great experience for the program! The Softball Program traveled to Newberg for the 1 st round of the OSAA State Playoffs. The game was exciting all the way to the last out of the game. We came up just short losing 4-3 in a well-played game. They too bring back a solid nucleus of players and with the JV Program going 15-1, the future looks bright! A huge thanks to the coaching staff for their leadership this season. The Track Program finished up their season at the OSAA State Meet over the weekend and our athletes performed well. Ben Fowler tied for 5th place in the pole vault, Keating Hinkley finished 8th in the shot put, Nolan Malcomson finished 6th in the 110 hurdles, and our 4 X 100 team finished 10th in the state. Outstanding accomplishments for the group and they also bring a solid group of returners as well. Can’t thank the Track Program enough for their efforts in creating a fun, inclusive, and competitive Track Program. As our sports programs wrap up another year of Wilson Athletics, I wanted to say thank you to the parents, community, businesses, and teachers for supporting Wilson High School. To say that we have faced adversity this year would be an understatement. But out of adversity comes resiliency, and I firmly believe that our student-athletes demonstrated that all year. I can’t thank them enough for being leaders in our school and community. I also want to thank Leanne Van Horn who has been such an instrumental component of our Athletic Department. She has done so much to increase community outreach, communications, and supporting our school. We March On!
