Jesuit’s distance runners, seniors Patrick Dowd and Robert Buisson, finished first and second in the 3200 to clinch the championship. The Blue Jay 4 x 800 relay team, sophomore Michael Trepagnier, junior Tanner Salsman, freshman Alex Siguenza, and senior Jack DesRoches, set a district record with a time of 8:13.19.
