As the weather begins to cool, Jesuit wrestling competition starts to heat up. While the Blue Jays have been preparing since the end of last year, Jesuit officially started their 2021 campaign on November 13, 2021, in the Gayle and Tom Benson Arena against defending state champion St. Paul’s.

After a slow beginning to the matches that resulted in a 32-0 deficit, Jesuit climbed all the way back to only trail 37-31. In the second to last match, junior John Michael Bourgeois picked up a massive win over a wrestler he had lost to only a year before to give Jesuit a chance to win going into the final match. 

After the exciting matches were over, St. Paul’s pulled out the victory by a score of 43-31. The Jesuit grapplers proved that they will be in the hunt throughout the year under the new guidance of head coach Jon Orillion ’01.
