The Bowmen football and baseball teams each won Class 5A state championships for the second time in three years. Also, the Sherwood girls soccer team reached the Class 5A state championship match for the second straight season.

Meanwhile, other Bowmen squads shined during the past school year. The Sherwood volleyball, girls cross country, girls swimming, boys swimming, girls track and field, boys track and field, boys tennis and girls tennis teams each won Northwest Oregon Conference regular season championships and/or district meet or tournament titles.

The common factor behind many of those successful Sherwood squads was a talented, deep group of senior athletes.

Here’s a brief look at some of the Bowmen seniors who stood out during the past school year.

Cristian Morris was a breakaway threat for the Sherwood football team. As a Bowmen senior, he rushed for 1,817 yards and 25 touchdowns on 122 carries (a 14.9 yards-a-carry average). He also had 10 catches for 236 yards and three more TDs. Morris also had three interceptions on defense.

He was a first-team All-Northwest Oregon Conference pick both at running back and defensive back. Morris also earned first-team Class 5A All-State honors at both running back and defensive back.

During the track and field season, Morris, coming back from a hamstring injury, helped the Sherwood boys 4 x 400-meter relay team win a state championship.

Jessica Imbrie shined for the Sherwood girls soccer team, earning first-team all-league and all-state honors. She scored both Lady Bowmen goals in a 2-1 state playoff semifinal victory at Willamette despite suffering an ankle injury during the match.
