Oakland Oakers celebrate 2A title

Oakland Oakers celebrate 2A title

Just like the football team, the Oakland Oakers are 2A State basketball champions with a 60-54 win over previously unbeaten Irrigon in Pendleton, Oregon.

The Oakers last made the title game in 2006.

Roy Benzel and Colton Reber led Oakland with 11 points while Austin Collins and Jeb Harper added 9.

The game was tied at 24 at halftime, but the Oakers used a 20 point 4th quarter to push them over the top.

Go Nuts! and congrats to Oakland High School.

Have any pictures or video of the big win? Let us know, we'd love to share them on television. sports@kval.com
