Richland senior Adam Weissenfels had a touchdown catch, 4A championship record 3 interceptions, 4 made extra points and 77 punt return yards to help lead the Richland Bombers football team past the Woodinville Falcons in their state finals matchup.
The Hermiston Bulldogs football team won a state title in their last game as a member of the OSAA. Will that success translate when the Bulldogs transition to the WIAA and Mid-Columbia Conference next school year?
Centers Geoffrey Robinson and Santos Gallegos; guards Rene Marin Cuevas, Jax Lee, Jacob Stanfield and Kristian Mijic; tackles Aric Davison and Ben Dezember; and tight end Connor Faucheux have outperformed expectations this season while leading the Richland Bombers football team to its third straight Class 4A state semifinal.
