Outstanding games from senior Jonah Anderson and junior Ethan Benoit helped the Blue Jays defeat St. Therese Academy (Metairie), 24.5 – 2.5. The match took place Monday, Feb. 7, at All Star Lanes in Kenner.

Anderson, who was averaging 154 pins per game heading into the day, rolled a 205, while Benoit recorded a 206. His average was 152. Others breaking the 200-pin mark were juniors Will Carpenter (255) and Will Adams (212), and senior Josh Barraza (202). The final team-pin total was Jesuit 3,240 – St. Therese 2,193.

After dropping matches to defending state champ Brother Martin and Archbishop Shaw, coach Todd Bourgeois ’88 used internal roster competition to rally his charges. “With two district matches right around the corner and an earlier start to the playoffs, we’re going to have to show steady improvement from here on in. I remain confident that our boys will rise to the challenge.”

The Jays, who are 5-2 and 1-0 in district competition, face Kenner Discovery on Thursday, Feb. 10, at AMF in Kenner.
