Far West League District Three-AA District Three-3A The Far West League was formed before the 1977-1978 school year from schools of the Coast and Sunset Leagues. Gold Beach High School has been the team to beat most years, winning seven of the league's eleven team championships. The league's best year in state competition was 1981 when they had four champions, two runners-up and six consolation placers. This is even more remark- able when considering that it was only the year before that a league wrestler had finally won a state title, Greg Haga of Gold Beach. The four 1981 champions were evenly split between Brookings-Harbor and Gold Beach,helping place the teams 3-4 in state team standings. Several league wrestlers have distinguished themselves in state competition. Jeff Butler, Bandon, was a three-time state champion in the lower weights. He also won two state freestyle titles and was a four- time district champion. There have been three wres- tlers claiming two titles each; Matt Ambrose, Brook- ings-Harbor, and Tom Caughran, Gold Beach, both win- ning their titles in 1981 and 1982; and Ross Morris of Coquille in 1993 and 1994. In 2001, James Granger became a Triple Crown winner.
