Our football program saw a lot of growth both on and off the field this season. The scores did not adequately reflect the amount of labor put forth by these young men, with only one win for the season. However, hard work rarely goes unnoticed, and the League recognized several of our players for their efforts.

Our girls and boys soccer teams are a collaborative effort with Columbia Christian School.
Portland Christian hosts our lady athletes, and had a good run, with some pretty exciting contests, great finishes, and plenty of upcoming talent to continue building with. The ladies finished with a 6-6-2 overall record – 6th in their league and 14th in OSAA rankings. Their talent and hard work was also recognized by the joint 3A/2A/1A league.

Our Cross Country team is typically small in size, but they are mighty in their efforts. All five members competed well, and made improvements to their personal times. Senior, Beau Griffith finished 3rd in League with a 17:33 time for his 5000M, which earned him a spot at the State Meet at Lane Community College. Beau competed strong, as always, and finished 23rd out of 114 with a time of 17:38.
Volleyball rounded out the season with the strongest finish, making their way to the OSAA State Championships. The Lady Royals finished 2nd in League with an impressive 11-1, falling only to Rainier, and an 18-3 overall record for the season. In the end, it was again Rainier who ended their state run in an exciting and competitive 4 set match. With a top 8 finish, and an overall OSAA ranking of 9th, they have plenty to be proud of! The Lewis & Clark League agreed, and recognized the players’ strengths, as well as the program leader.
2nd Team All-League – Madeline DeLucia (10)

Congratulations to all of our student athletes! They are the heart and soul of Portland Christian Athletics, and their commitment to their sport, their teammates, and their community are what we are most proud of, regardless of the numbers on a scoreboard.
