The fall sports season began with workouts for high school athletes across the state Monday, and Jesuit's seniors have plenty of pressure on their shoulders without having stepped on a field.

For the past nine years, Jesuit has dominated the state's largest schools in terms of titles won, title games played in and overall results as deemed by the OSAA through the Oregonian Cup. The Cup measures athletic programs with a points system using individual and team results to determine the state's top program. Jesuit has won every year since 2004-05.

Las fall, the Crusaders opened the school year with titles in volleyball and boys and girls basketball.

West Albany, sparked by the school's first volleyball title, won at Class 5A, while La Salle of Milwaukie won at Class 4A.

Valley Catholic of Beaverton, Portland Christian and Triad School of Klamath Falls won at Class 3A, 2A and 1A, respectively.

Championship events begin with Cross Country, Nov. 2.
