2014 School Profile for the Oregon Hawks

Published: Tuesday, July 8, 2014 11:15 p.m. CST

2014-15 enrollment: 467 2013-14 enrollment: 492 Difference: -25

Boys sports: Baseball, basketball, bowling, cross country, football, golf, soccer, track & field, wrestling

Girls sports: Basketball, bowling, cross country, golf, softball, track & field, volleyball

Classes: Two class – A; Three class – 1A; Four class – 2A; Football – determined by playoff qualifiers, likely 3A.

Looking back: After missing the playoffs in 2012, the Hawks battled to a 5-4 record in a tough BNC West in football, and then upset Wilmington in the first round of the playoffs. Adding to the fun of the fall was a second straight regional title in volleyball. On the hardwood, the Oregon girls were led by two-time SVM player of the year Sam Lambrigtsen. The Hawks won a regional title before falling to eventual state runner-up Prophetstown at the sectional.

Looking ahead: The football team has a strong tradition, which makes it a likely playoff contender every year. The Big Northern West keeps getting tougher, and adds Dixon to the fray this season. The girls basketball team loses Lambrigtsen and a host of other key seniors, meaning 2014-15 could be a rebuilding year of sorts. Emy Wright will be the key returner on that squad. The Hawks also have sisters Abigail and Alyson Scheidecker with bright futures in golf and bowling.

Reader Poll

Rock Falls is considering a ban on leaf burning. Should the city finally take that step?
Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
