MILWAUKIE — The Falcons are heading into their last winter season with the 4A Tri Valley Conference. Next year, the school will compete in the 5A Northwest Conference.
La Salle’s 2012-’13 winter season was highlighted by strong performances by the Falcon basketball teams. The Oregonian awarded La Salle Prep the 4A Oregonian Cup for the year. Led by Jared Curtiss, head coach, the boys’ basketball team finished third at the state championships last year. The La Salle boys will lead the Tri Valley Conference in height, but are experiencing a youth movement after graduating eight seniors from last year’s team.
