2009 Team Banquet and Team Awards

This past Wednesday the 2009 Linfield Wildcats met one more time to celebrate their tremendous 12-1 season. The annual team banquet took place at the Michelbook Country Club facility in McMinnville where the team feasted and relived their past campaign where they won Linfield's 33rd Conference Title, secured another perfect regular season record, and advanced to the Semi-Finals of the NCAA Playoffs, where it took a 4th quarter comeback by the eventual Division III National Champions (UW-Whitewater) to end this team's journey.
