In a perfect conclusion to an undefeated season, the Jesuit lacrosse team bested Catholic High School of Baton Rouge 12–8 to seize the LHSLL Division I state title on Sunday, May 16. Strong showings on both offense and defense under the leadership of coach Zach Pall ensured that the Jays would win the day in Shreveport at Lee Hedges Stadium.

“It feels amazing,” said Pall in a post-game interview. “These kids have worked so hard this year, and their hard work paid off.”

With senior attack and Berry College commit Andrew Brown injured, Evan Centola stepped to lead the Jays’ offense with six goals and two assists, earning him both offensive and overall MVP designations. With the conclusion of this championship game, the Jesuit defense led by LHSLL defensive MVP Max Milano completed an entire season holding every opponent under 10 points.

The victory comes hot on the heels of a state final victory by the Blue Jay baseball team, ensuring that Blue Jay fans have more than enough to celebrate this weekend.
