The Westside Christian High School girls soccer team is enjoying a preseason trip to southern Oregon. Yesterday Cascade Christian rolled out the welcome mat and the teams played a hard fought friendly at the US Cellular fields. Afterward the teams grabbed a group photo and then sat down for pizza (generously provided by Cascade Christian!) and enjoyed making new friends. The Westside girls then headed to Lost Creek Reservoir for swimming and camping.
Today’s plans are for a visit to and a hike at Crater Lake. Then off to Eugene for another friendly on Thursday.
A number of Westside students volunteered as coaches at a Beaverton Foursquare community outreach soccer camp this week. Westside students served campers from a wide variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds while teaching both the fundamentals and some of soccer’s finer points.
Thanks for sharing some of your summer space to serve Eagles!
Westside Christian High School and BSC Oregon officially announce a multi-year facility use agreement. Westside will renovate the campus including improvements to the entry road, parking lot, installation of field lights, and turf field, with expected completion date of Fall 2017. BSC Oregon is the primary tenant and will manage all after school hourly use. BSC Oregon will contribute financially to the project as well as provide equipment used by both parties.
In February 2013, Westside purchased the property at the intersection of Hwy. 99 and 217, just twenty minutes south of downtown Portland. They moved into their new campus in January, 2014. Westside enjoys a reputation of offering a top-quality education infused with a spiritual foundation. They host a number of
athletic soccer teams that compete in the Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA).
“I’m excited that the vision of our own soccer field is becoming a reality. It’s an honor to join forces with a quality club like BSC. In partnership, we will be able to provide an outstanding venue for school and community use,” said Debi Miller, Head of School at Westside Christian High School.
BSC Oregon, originally Bridlemile Soccer Club, began as a small recreational soccer program of 100 members in the South West hills of Portland. Over the last ten years, the club has grown to over 1,000 players that operate in multiple cities across the state. BSC Oregon is an IRS designated 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides a balanced athletic experience for student-athletes 4-19yrs old.
“Thank you to our members, staff, and board for their work to make this dream a reality. Your dedication, patience, and loyalty to the club is greatly appreciated and being able to partner with an amazing school like Westside Christian is a reward for that work. Having access to WCHS’ field will allow us to teach and expand our message in the community focusing on a healthy and balanced soccer experience,” says BSC Oregon Executive Director Scot Thompson.
Both Westside Christian and BSC Oregon are accepting donations to the project. For additional questions regarding donations please contact:

This afternoon senior Ali Graham, Westside’s All State soccer keeper, signed her letter of intent to play at Pacific Lutheran University next year. Ali notched 11 shutouts and conceded just over .6 goals per match. In her junior year, Ali’s stellar net-play propelled Westside to the state championship game, and a second place finish. Another lock-down defensive effort resulted in a 3rd place ranking and finish in state this year.
At Pacific Lutheran Ali will compete in the NCAA Div III Northwest Conference.
The Eagles are at it again. For the second time in school history, the team has made it into the State Championship’s semi-finals and they are looking to get a spot in the title contest for the second year in a row.
On Saturday, Westside hosted Creswell, the #6 ranked team in State. Creswell came in on the heels of a strong 3 nil defeat of #10 ranked Western Mennonite. With just over 12 minutes left in the match Lauren Dueker took a Laura Staropoli throw-in just inside the 18 yard box, pivoted and hit a world class bending ball that dipped just below the crossbar and found the upper far right side netting to give the Eagles a lead.
Just six minutes later Staropoli stepped in front of a Creswell keeper punt, brought the ball down with a thigh trap on the run and hit a low driven ball into the left side of the Creswell goal to put the game out of reach.
The girls will see league opponent Catlin Gable, ranked #2 in State, with a 5pm kickoff semi-final at Catlin Gable on Tuesday night November 10th. Come cheer Westside on to victory!
Varsity soccer netted a 4-1 victory against Rainier on Monday night on an evening when their seniors were honored for their contributions to the program. Only two games remain on the regular season schedule.
