It was another strong year for Tiger seniors

by: DAN BROOD - SUPER TIGER SENIOR -- Tigard's Megan Franz, shown here after setting a personal record in the 800-meter preliminaries at the state track meet, also had a big soccer season for the Tigers. TIGARD — The 2013-2014 school year was big for Tigard High School when it came to athletics.

The Tigers had a proficient year, their final year playing in the Pacific Conference, winning conference or district titles in football, girls soccer, girls cross country, boys basketball, girls basketball and boys golf in addition to other team and individual success.

And, as usual, the senior class at Tigard played a major role in that success.

Here’s a brief look at some of the seniors, in addition to Times Athlete of the Year Emilee Cincotta, who stepped up big for the Tigers the past school year.

A.J. Hotchkins provided the power at both fullback and linebacker for the Tiger football team that reached the semifinal round of the Class 6A state playoffs. He also returned to the basketball court at Tigard and helped lead that Tiger team to a conference crown.

Megan Franz had a strong soccer season for the Tigers in the fall. During the spring season, she placed in both the 800 and 1,500-meter runs at the Class 6A state track and field championships.

Lexi Carter, with her dynamic guard play on the court, was named the Pacific Conference girls basketball Player of the Year and she was also a first-team Class 6A all-state selection.

Jake Biglow was a hard-hitting linebacker for the Tigard football team and a key first baseman/pitcher for the baseball squad.

Bruin Campbell was both a ball-hawking defensive back and a sure-handed receiver during football season and he was an all-state infielder this past spring for the Tiger baseball squad.

Lindsey Rosette provided an athletic force for the Tigers at the net during volleyball season and she completed an outstanding track and field career at the Class 6A state track and field championships.

Bryan Berg with his spectacular, high-flying dunks, pinpoint three-point shooting and stifling defense, was named the Pacific Conference boys basketball Player of the Year. He also was a second-team Class 6A all-state pick.

Nick Duron was a sack-master at defensive end for the Tigard football squad. He also was a strong pitcher for the baseball team.

Jett Even showed his strong arm at quarterback for the Tigard football team. He also provided a strong outside shooting attack, coming off the bench, for the Tiger boys basketball squad.
