The girls from Jesuit High School are 6A soccer champions after a legendary season, demolishing the team that eliminated them last year, Sunset, by a score of 4-0. Sophomore star Callan Harrington had two goals on the day.

Senior stars Emma Treasure, Sophie Braun, and Sydney Collins claimed the crown as their second in four years. Treasure and Collins are set to play at the University of Cal-Berkeley while Braun joins Gonzaga in the fall.

There are Catholic champs in 4A girls soccer as well, with Valley Catholic pulling out a 1-0 victory over Hidden Valley. Francesca Tubito had the winning goal, with Valiant goalkeeper Noelle Mannen saving three shots on the day.

Among schools 3A and smaller, St. Mary’s in Medford made it into the semifinals, but fell to eventual champ Oregon Episcopal.

In boys soccer, Jesuit was runner up to Westview in 6A. La Salle Prep went down in the 5A semifinals to eventual champion Woodburn. Among schools 3A and smaller, De La Salle North fought into the semifinals and lost to eventual champion Riverside.

In 6A volleyball, Central Catholic was runner up to Southridge. Camille Guerrero of the Rams had 10 kills in the loss. In 4A, Valley Catholic lost in the finals to Sisters (the town, not the nuns), with 28 kills from Lizzy Osborn of the Valiants.

In cross country, the boys from Jesuit sailed to a 6A title with Joshua Schumacher, Grant Summers, Will Sheaffer and Jude Augustine all finishing in the top 10 at the championship meet. Max Himmelright was 11th. Central Catholic came in a rather distant second, with Cameron Thompson in 10th among individuals.

Among 5A boys in cross country, Marist came in third, with Jerik Embleton crossing the line in fifth.

In girls cross country, Jesuit took the 6A title with a stunning three runners in the top five, including Makenna Schumacher, who won the individual crown as well. Alexis Kebbe was third and Kelsey Gripekoven fifth. St. Mary’s Academy came in third with Sarah Lyell the eighth runner to finish.

It was a dry year for Catholic high schools in football. Perennial 6A contenders Jesuit and Central Catholic both lost in the quarterfinals, the farthest any Catholic team this season ventured into a football bracket. The Rams went down in a squeaker to eventual champions Clackamas.
