|Blue Jay Athletics |
Athletics are encouraged among the students within reasonable limits. However, only those students are eligible whose standing in discipline and application to study is satisfactory. Thus, it is intended that athletics
become a means of promoting intellectual progress as well as affording needed relaxation and physical exercise.
An athlete remains eligible if he (at the end of the preceding semester) is passing at least six subjects and maintains a 1.57 average on a 4 point scale. Jesuit High School has a mixed (5/4) scale (see Reports and Grading System). Please be aware of the Jesuit High School’s GPA level has adjusted to the LHSAA requirement.

Five Blue Jays Commit To Continue Their Athletic Careers in College

Five seniors graduating with Jesuit High School’s Class of 2013 committed to continue their education and athletic careers at out-of-state universities. They made their commitments on Wednesday morning — an NCAA “National Signing Day” — in front of a large gathering of proud family members, supportive teammates and friends, and delighted coaches in St. Ignatius Hall on Jesuit’s Mid-City campus.
Neal Fitzpatrick, the son of William and Kathryn Fitzpatrick of Metairie, was the Class 5A individual champion at the November 2012 LHSAA Cross Country Meet in Natchitoches, where he staked the title to the three-mile race with a personal best time of 14:54, which is a new Jesuit record for the state meet. The Times-Picayune named him as this past season’s All-New Orleans Area Runner of the Year. In cross country, Fitzpatrick was named All-Metro and All-State three times (2010, 2011, and 2012), and in track, he was named All-Metro and All-State in 2012. Fitzpatrick will attend St. Louis University (a Jesuit university) and has a strong interest in studying meteorology.
Devin Francis, the son of David J. Francis of New Orleans, played soccer for Jesuit throughout his five years and was a midfielder on the state championship varsity teams in his junior and senior years. He played on a regional Olympic Development Team in 2012. Francis will attend the University of North Carolina at Asheville but is undecided on a major.
Nick Ingles, the son of Luis I. Ingles III of Metairie and Christine DeRouen O’Brien of New Orleans, was the co-captain of varsity golf in 2012-13 and a member of Jesuit’s 2011 state championship team. He was a three-year starter and three-year letterman as well as a member of the school’s district championship teams for three consecutive years (2011, 2012, and 2013). Ingles will attend Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi and major in finance.
Andrew Pettus, the son of Steven and Yvette Pettus of New Orleans, has been a key member of Jesuit’s last three cross country teams, including the 2010 state championship squad. The Times-Picayune named him to its All-State team in 2010 as well as twice to the All-Metro and three times to the All-District teams. An injury sidelined him for much of the 2012 regular season, but he trained remarkably well to help the Blue Jay team finish third at the state meet in Natchitoches. Pettus will attend Spring Hill College (a Jesuit university) in Mobile, Alabama and major in biology.
Jordan Rice, the son of Charles L. Rice and Vonda Flentroy-Rice of New Orleans, played soccer for Jesuit three years and was a midfielder on the state championship varsity teams in his junior and senior years. Rice, who the Times-Picayune named to its All-District team in 2012, will participate in the Louisiana High School Coaches Association All-Star Soccer Game this summer (June 29) at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Rice will attend Howard University in Washington, D.C. and major in mechanical engineering.

No Curveball! Gibbs Keeps His Commitment and Signs with Tulane
Surrounded by his family, coaches, and teammates past and present, senior
Emerson Gibbs signed a letter of commitment on Nov. 15, 2011 to play baseball at Tulane University. The 6'1" 175-pound right hander finished 2011 with a record of 8-0 and an ERA of 1.38. As a junior, he was named All-State, All-Metro, and All-District. The Blue Jays defeated Barbe 2-1 in a state quarterfinal contest in which Gibbs pitched a complete game, giving up only six hits.
