Jayson’s Wild Photo

Several Blue Jays spend part of their lunch hour taking part in the Fall Foosball Tournament, hosted by the Foosball Club. Sophomores Connor Schexnayder and Tony Nguyen (left) battle it out at the foosball table against freshmen Joon Lee and Sam Schiff, while pre-freshman Thomas Sagona helps keep score. Teams consist of two players, and the games often attract a group of spectators. Tournament play continues through November when the last standing team will be named the tournament victor.

Are You Ready for Some Foosball?

Junior Alex Daigle gets a few minutes during his lunch hour to practice for the Philelectic Society’s auditions of A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare. Auditions will be held in the auditorium at 5:30 p.m. on both Tuesday, September 17, and Wednesday, September 18. Read more audition details.

Mid-Day Practice for Midsummer Auditions…

These pre-freshmen football players practiced with the rest of the team on the Will Clark Field on Monday afternoon in preparation for their game against the Rummel Raiders this Thursday (September 19) at John Ryan Stadium. The six players — three quarterbacks and three wide receivers — practiced several plays designed to surprise, confuse, and frustrate their 
opponents’ defense. From left are Reed Huguet (QB), Alex Watermeier (QB), Blake Mire (WR), Christian McClure (WR), Harrison Robichaux (WR), and Michael Torry (QB). Who knows, four years from now, they might be leading the varsity Jays to a winning season.

Thursday Green Day…

Members of the Blue Jay band practice their routines on Will Clark Field Wednesday afternoon in preparation for their "super" set at the Mercedes Benz Superdome Friday evening. The band -- along with the football team -- will play Friday night when the Blue Jays take on St. Paul's in the Allstate Sugar Bowl Prep Showcase.

“Super” Men…

The ear-splitting fire alarms suddenly erupted in the halls and offices throughout Jesuit on Tuesday morning, prompting the orderly evacuation of more than 1,400 Blue Jays, faculty, and staff. Routine as fire drills have become, they are always taken seriously. They are critical to ensuring the safety of everyone at Jesuit. Blue Jays empty the school quickly and quietly, their destination: Will Clark Field. Along the way, minds wander, imagination takes flight, as if these Blue Jays were actually slogging through waist-deep water on Banks Street, a steady rain pelting them through the gates of delirium.

Gates of Delirium…

When Mr. Julio Minsal-Ruiz, S.J. is looking for a little spiritual solitude with a view, he sometimes heads up to the Jesuit roof, where he could be found on Monday 
reading Magnificat Magazine. When this photo was taken at 7:22 p.m., the sun 
had disappeared beneath the horizon some 14 minutes earlier, but was still 
strong enough to illuminate downtown New Orleans, bathing the familiar 
skyline in a blueish hue. Mr. Minsal-Ruiz — a Jesuit scholastic who 
teaches theology (Morality and Vocations) to Blue Jays — was 
taking full advantage of the new deck, complete with 
expanded bench seating, that the school’s 
maintenance workers recently built...
naturally, alongside the pool.

Up on the Roof…
