Eight Straight! Golf Finishes Fall Season Undefeated
Fore! The Jesuit High School (JHS) golf team is back in full swing.
In a quest to win their dozenth district title in the last 13 years, the Blue Jays went undefeated through the 2019 fall season. They won eight straight matches, sweeping St. Augustine, Holy Cross, and Brother Martin for six of those eight wins. The Jays also edged out Newman in a non-district away match and, a day later, defeated Rummel at home.
Team captain Andrew Barreca is Jesuit’s lone senior. Barreca and sophomore Merrick Rotolo are the two returning starters, who played as the #1 and #5 man, respectively, on last year’s state tournament team. Newcomer Will Cedro joins Si Holmes and Hunter Hoffman as team members from the junior class. Sophomore golfers are Rotolo, Taylor Boasberg, Morgan Hebert, and Jacob Schorr. Freshman newcomers Bennett Ducasse, Clifton LeBlanc, and Alex Jeansonne made the team in early September and are already making an impact.
As the fall season ends, the preparation for the spring season begins. Therefore, the 11-man team remains in full swing.

In His Words…
“I’m very excited about the spring season,” said head golf coach Owen Seiler ’75. “We have new players who are competing for the starting five, and every returning player has improved from last year. We’re undefeated in district, which is an improvement from last year, so I hope winning is in our future if the guys stay focused.”
