Coast-Valley League The Coast-Valley championships were only in exis- tence for the nine year period of 1971-1979, but the league proved itself to be the overall strongest district ever. Made up primarily of teams from the old Tualatin Yamhill Valley and Wilco Leagues, it was the top league in the state for three years, had two state championship teams, and thirty individual titlist. In 1977, the district won six titles, three seconds, four thirds, two fourths and three fifths for the best district showing since 1953 when Special District Two, made up of many of the same schools, took eight firsts, four seconds and two thirds. The 1977 effort was led by state champion Estacada High School and their three individual champions: Chris Taylor, Terry Jones and Dana Dunn. Although not winning any individual championships, Sweet Home had a good showing and placed second. The C-V team champions that year, Newberg, followed in third place giving the league a 1-2- 3 showing, the only league to ever do that on the Triple- A level. Many outstanding wrestlers came from C-V schools during the league's nine year history. Terry Jones was it's only three-time state champions and holds two of it's six Triple Crowns. Silverton's Larry Bielenberg and Molalla's John Olson were state champions who went on to win college national titles. Jeff Steubing, McMinnville, went on to win a Pan American championship wrestling for Canada. Other outstanding wrestlers from this league include Randy Ohta, Molalla; Bill Anderson, Sweet Home; Chris Taylor and Rick McReynolds, Estacada; and John Waldrupe, Silverton.
