The Westview Wildcasts spoiled Jesuit's perfect Metro League record on the last day of league play with a 52-41 home victory in front of a spirited student body dressed in a sea of red t-shirts imprinted with "Pack the Pit" on the front and "Beat Jesuit" on the back. It was senior night at Westview, and with a very unexpected loss to Southridge a few weeks earlier spoiling the Westview's chance to challenge Jesuit for the Metro League title, thumping the Crusaders provided some degree of satisfaction for the second-place Wildcats.

As the OSAA Basketball Championships get underway, Westview has a good chance to become spoilers once again. Their strong finish at the end of league play has provided critical momentum in time for the playoffs. Some consider Westview as a dark horse that can not be overlooked as the state tournament gets underway. With 6'-11" junior Andy Poling and 6'-9" senior Trevor Siefken, Westview has the size to do battle with top-ranked Lake Oswego and South Medford. If the Wildcats bring their "A" game to the state tournament, Westview just might not be done spoiling other teams' post-season plans.
