State Senate Honors Montesano Football Team
On Friday, the Montesano Football team and coaching staff were in Olympia as Senators Jim Hargrove of Hoquiam and Brian Hatfield of Raymond sponsored Senate Resolution 8608 in honor of the team.
Montesano not only took the 1A State Championship, but also had a team grade point average of 3.5 to win the 1A Football Academic Championship.
Hargrove said that the Montesano football season “could make a movie”.
Overcoming the fire that destroyed Jack Rottle Stadium, they went on to take their first state football title since 1994.
Highlights from the game echoed through the Senate Chambers as all in attendance listened intently to the defining moments of the year.
Hatfield added, “It didn’t hurt that they had a fan base that made opponents’ stadiums feel as welcoming as Rottle Stadium.”
