The Jesuit swimming team captured its 36th consecutive metro title in the Allstate Sugar Bowl Metro Championship Meet at UNO on Saturday, Oct. 27. The Blue Jays won the meet with 482 points, 250 ahead of their closest competitor, E.D. White. More important than winning a 1st-place trophy, the team did what it went there to do—qualify every swimmer for the state meet.

In His Words…

“We positioned ourselves very well for the state meet by putting four swimmers in every event,” explained head swimming coach Bret Hanemann ’85. “When you’re in metro, you try to set yourself up with the fastest times. That puts you in the fastest heats, which almost guarantees a stronger finish.”

On the Horizon…

The Blue Jays will compete in the state championships on Friday and Saturday, November 16-17, in Sulphur.
