OSAA Football Playoffs

  • Dear Hillsboro High School Community,

    I am thrilled to announce that both our girls’ soccer team and football teams have qualified for the OSAA 5A playoffs. Our 10th ranked girls play at Crescent Valley High School in Corvallis at 6 PM, Tuesday, October 31st. Hope to see you there!

    This Friday night, November 3, 2023, we will be hosting our first football playoff game since 2014, when the 11th ranked McKay High School Royal Scots from Salem come to Hare Field for a game at 7:00pm against your 6th ranked Hilhi Spartans!

    Playoff games are different in a few ways. 

    1. Admission is $10 for adults and $6 for students. 

      • Tickets can be purchased using cash or card, but for playoffs can be purchased in advance on the OSAA website using Hometown ticketing online at:  https://www.osaa.org/shop/tickets

      • Students must still have ID cards or Student VUE, but have to pay full price with or without ASB stickers.

      • Youth Football and Cheer are not admitted free with jersey, but please do wear them in support.

    2. Passes are not accepted for this game except: 

      • ONLY the OSAA Gold Card, OSAA VIP pass, OSAA Media pass, will admit the bearer only with photo ID, are to be honored at any OSAA State Championship event. No school, athletic district, official’s association, etc., passes are to be accepted

    Some General Reminders per HSD Policy: 

    • HS students other than from Hillsboro HS or McKay HS will not be admitted. 

    • Middle School and Elementary students must stay with and sit in the stands with the adult who brings them in and will be acting as their supervisor throughout the evening.

    • Bags cannot be brought into the game. Please make arrangements to leave them in your car.

    • No outside food or drink is to be brought into Hare Field.

    Finally, root for our Spartans loudly and positively. No negative cheers, chants or yelling towards any individual player, group of players, number on either team, official or coach.

    Cheering hints; when we are on defense, be as loud as you can (this helps us a lot and makes it hard for the opposition), when we are on offense, wait until after the play to cheer (this makes it easier for us to hear our quarterback call the plays). 

    Let’s Go Sparts!

    Mr. Matsuo

    The Hillsboro School District recognizes athletic/activity participation as an integral part of the education process.

Students who represent their schools should set high expectations for themselves in all areas of school life, but particularly in the classroom.
