Pine Eagle joins 6-man football ranks

WILSONVILLE – The 2019 football season was a rough one for the Pine Eagle Spartans. Playing in the 1A 8-man league, the Spartans finished up the year with a 2-5 record. The season concluded with a forfeit to Adrian/Jordan Valley to close out the year as Pine Eagle lacked players to take the field because of injuries.

For the 2020 season, the Spartans will need to field a couple fewer players as Pine Eagle joins the crowded jumble in the 1A Special District 4 (6-man) league.
