Jesuit again leads state field of champions

Crusaders recover from Fall with two titles
March 27, 2012 / By Cliff Pfenning, oregonsports.com

After missing out on a state title in fall for the first time in 20 years, Jesuit High rallied with titles in boys basketball and girls swimming this winter in OSAA/U.S. Bank/Les Schwab Tires championship finals.

The basketball team went so far as to become the first team to score a four-peat at any level, beating upstart Lake Oswego in the Class 6A final at the Rose Garden.

In other highlights, South Medford, which had never played past the quarterfinals, won the 6A girls basketball title with an unbeaten season.

And, Dayton, a runner-up the past two years in 3A boys basketball, with several key players having lost the 3A football title on the final play, won the state title, beating Horizon Christian - its nemesis the past two years - in the final.

The winter included the stall-ball tactic used by Willamette in the 5A girls hoop final that got some afficianados calling for a shot clock.

Summit won both boys and girls team swim titles - the second sport the school has won both boys and girls team titles to go along with cross country in fall.
