After the first day of the LHSAA state wrestling championships, the Blue Jay wrestling team sat in contention for a top 2 finish.
The team was in second place for the entire day until the last round of matches, when Holy Cross scored a few more consolation points. Jesuit, in third place currently, trails the Catholic League district champion Brother Martin by 42.5.
Jesuit had 11 of 14 wrestlers advance to the quarterfinals. Of the 11 quarter-finalists, six won their match and advanced to the semifinals. Two other wrestlers, junior Sam Dreuil (106) and senior Eli Larriviere (145), battled it out in the consolations in an effort to capture third place. Those Blue Jays who wrestled in the championship round semifinals are the following:
Luke Eccles (132)
Adam Larriviere (138)
Nathan Koenig (152)
Paul Treuting (160)
Thomas Arseneaux (182)
Perri Ganci (220)
These six wrestlers, along with Dreuil and Larriviere, represented Jesuit as the eight starters to advance to Day 2, which guarantees them a top 6 spot on the LHSAA podium.
