It’s also the first outright league title for the Generals since 1986.

The team has won by an average margin of 34.9 points over the season, improving from a 6-18 win loss record from last year. Grant, 13th in the OSAA power rankings, plays host to Newberg in a first-round playoff game Wednesday, March 11.

The Generals have been selected as team- of- the-week in the Oregonian twice this season. A few of the players also have played in the Portland Observer’s Joyce Washington All-Star Classic.
