1966 Indians wrestlers celebrate golden anniversary of Cowapa League and regional championships
As the 2016 school year comes close to the end of another successful year of sports, what may not be known is that this is the 50th anniversary for Scappoose in the Cowapa League.
Scappoose Union High School, as it was called back then, in the building now known as the middle school, joined the Cowapa League for the 1965-1966 season and won its first-ever league title in the sport of wrestling.
The Indians wrestling team won the Cowapa League title and the district championship, and also took the once-prestigious Lower Columbia Invitational in the days where there were only two school classifications: A1 for big schools and A2 to B for everything else.
Scappoose sent 10 to state and placed fifth.
Congratulations to all of this year's athletes, and happy golden anniversary to those of long ago.
