Marshfield’s cheerleading team tied for sixth in its division at the state cheerleading championships Saturday in Portland, the best finish of the four Coos County squads that competed in the event.

Tualatin edged Thurston for the title in the coed large division, which included the Pirates. They also finished behind Lebanon, McMinnville and North Medford.

North Bend was ninth in the coed small division, for teams with fewer members. At 18 teams, it was the largest division and also included the best team, Newberg, which had the best scores of any team in any division for building skills (stunts) and overall routine.

North Bend was one of just two schools smaller than Class 5A in the division. The other was Myrtle Point, which had a team including eight freshmen and finished 18th while gaining valuable experience for the future.

Coquille was eighth in the Class 3A-2A-1A division, which was won by Central Linn.

Henley won the Class 4A division, South Albany won for Class 5A and Westview was Class 6A champion.
