MONTESANO HIGH FOOTBALL

BULLDOGS CAP IMPROBABLE RUN WITH FIRST STATE CHAMPIONSHIP IN 18 YEARS

The unranked Bulldogs started the year 1-2, losing their first league game in five years. To make matters worse, Montesano's iconic 80 year-old stadium burned to the ground the night after that second consecutive defeat. From that moment, the Bulldogs started an incredible run, never losing again, culminating in an improbable comeback in the 1A state championship game to win their first state title since 1994. On top of winning the State Championship, they were also named academic State Champs for 1A by the WIAA with a 3.52 team GPA. (Photo Credit: Shawn Donnelly)
