Cascade head coach Justin Amaya celebrates with his team after defeating Philomath in the 4A state championship game on Saturday, March 11, 2023 in Forest Grove, Ore.

FOREST GROVE – No. 3 Cascade battled through five ties and eight lead changes, but a dominate second half on Saturday night propelled the Cougars to a back-to-back state title, topping No. 1 Philomath 61-52 in the OSAA 4A state championship.

Landon Knox led Cascade with 19 points, three rebounds and four assists. Spencer Horne dropped 16 points and three rebounds, Kaiden Ford had nine points and Anthony Best had seven points and six rebounds.

“I’m super proud of them, people doubted this team all year,” Cascade first-year head coach Justin Amaya said. “We weren’t predicted to win league, we weren’t predicted to beat Philomath. Obviously, we weren’t predicted to beat Philomath here again. We continued to step up to the occasion every time.”
