After being exclusively an all-girls school dating back to the early 1900's, St. Mary's of the Valley High School in Beaverton, Oregon began admitting boys in 1991 and changed its name to Valley Catholic. As enrollment for boys increased over the years, the sports programs have steadily gained in strength. The boys basketball program reached a major milestone the first week of February when their convincing 55-36 home victory over Dayton High School secured the program's first ever West Valley League title.
After edging Dayton on the road by only one point earlier in the season, Valley Catholic head coach Jeff Gallagher expected the game to be tight. However, the team's up-tempo play wore Dayton down, and after a solid second-half performance broke the game loose, the Valiants celebrated after the final horn with their first net cutting ceremony.
