It was a golden year for a pair of Timberwolf teams — the girls soccer squad and the girls water polo team — who claimed state championships.

Tualatin also excelled in its final year playing in the Pacific Conference, winning conference or district titles in girls water polo, girls swimming, baseball, girls tennis and girls golf.
