The Oregon boys include Grant's Paul McCoy, Wilson's Mario Gill, Oregon City's Brad Tinsley and Sammy Schafer, Sunset's Garrett Sim and Westview's Andy Poling. Girls feature Janita Badon of Jefferson, Audrey Miller of Central Catholic, Jackie Nared of Westview and Michelle Jenkins and Alex Earl of Southridge.
