School News & Announcements


Check out today's Oregonian article below for a full team roster. Thank you to LHS teacher George Ten Eyck and all of the dedicated coaches who give up so much of their time helping students prepare for the regional, state and national competitions for the past 12 months. They have already started working with the 2016-2017 team as well. 

Grant High School placed third at Nationals this year and won the National title last year and in 2013. No state has won the title more times than Oregon. Kudos to our LHS team, Grant High School, PPS and the State of Oregon!
