Mount Hood League The Mt. Hood League is the youngest (along with the Three Rivers) among the Triple-A, coming into existence because of the redistricting of the Metro area schools following the 1981-1982 school year. Composed of elements of the Wilco, Timber Valley and Metro Leagues, it has done exceptionally well. In 1983, three teams placed in the top five at state. In 1986, Dan Russell became the first four-time AAA state champion since Lee Allen of Sandy who did in 34 years earlier. Dan's brother Joe was a two-time cham- pion who might well have become a three-timer if not for an unfortunate motorcycle accident just before the start of his senior year. Chuck Kearney of Sandy was another outstanding two-time state champion from the league. Kearney also won two Triple Crowns. Other Triple Crown winners include Larry Topliff of Sandy, Oscar Wood of Barlow and Sean Allison of Gresham. Sam Barlow High School, coached by Dennis Ingram and then later by Bruce Robinett, has won the district title every year since the league was formed, with Sandy, Gresham, David Douglas and Centennial sharing sec- ond place honors during this time. Three Mt. Hood teams have captured second place state honors: Sandy in 1983, led by Topliff and Kearney, and Sam Barlow in 1985, led by Duane Dickey; in 1992, this time led by Isaac and Oscar Wood; and then Sam Barlow again in 1995. Isaac and Oscar Wood both won three individual titles for the Bruins. Oscar Wood also went on to win Triple Crown honors in 1992.
