Record Shattering Season for Portland Athletics!
The following is an announcement on the Portland High School athletics website on April 15th, 2021.
The winter sports season that just ended was a record breaking year for Portland Athletics. This season alone saw PHS win TEN team championships! Ten championships in one SEASON. Five league titles, three district titles, one regional title and, of course, our girls basketball STATE CHAMPIONSHIP! Until this year, PHS had never won more than five league championships in an ENTIRE YEAR but did it this year in just one season. To follow that up with five MHSAA tournament championships on top of that and for those to include only the second state title in school history is almost unreachable and may never be seen again. Congrats to our coaches Joe Whitford - girls bowling, Dan Graef - boys bowling, Andy Pulling - wrestling, Mindy Blaschka - competitive cheer, and Jason Haid - girls basketball and of course a huge CONGRATULATIONS to ALL of our athletes on these five teams on this records shattering season! This will therefore also end our school year with more championships than ever before too. Here's to a great spring!
