Springfield’s Danaeja Romero-Ah Sam cuts down the net after Springfield’s championship win. The Millers won their first state title in 11 years.

CORVALLIS – The Springfield High School girls basketball team wasn’t surprised to find itself facing Crescent Valley in the 5A state championship game – the same matchup as last year. In fact, the Millers were driven all season by a sense of revenge.

Top-ranked Springfield, which completed its conference schedule without a loss, used its stifling defense to shut down No. 6 Crescent Valley 44-29 on Friday night in Gill Coliseum to earn its first state title in girls basketball since 2012.

“This is the redemption. This is our redemption,” said Danaeja Romero-Ah Sam, star junior for Springfield and reigning Class 5A State Player of the Year. “We were talking about this all year, because we knew we were gonna match up with them eventually.”
