The OSAA celebrates 100 years in sports
The Oregon Schools Activities Association is entering its 100th season as the governing body for prep sports in the state.
"It's 100 years of schools coming together to play by the same rules, to have fair competition and to open up participation for kids," the OSAA's Brad Garrett said. "It's pretty cool to be able to say an organization is celebrating a century."

"Participating in high school athletics was a big part of life growing up, and a big reason for what I do today," said OSAA President Peter Weber.
