Redemption was the motivation Cottage Grove used to bring home its first girls basketball state title.

The top-ranked Lions, state runner-up a year earlier, had to hold off a late run from Sky-Em League rival Marist for a 53-51 win in the OSAA 4A championship game at Gill Coliseum.

"We had to show La Pine and we had to show Marist. We had to prove everything," Cottage Grove senior guard Reed Levings said.
