Senior Spencer Lanosga concluded his high school wrestling career at Jesuit with a third-consecutive LHSAA individual state championship, contributing to the Blue Jays’ overall second successive team state title. Lanosga’s stellar performance secured him The Times-Picayune Wrestler of the Year honor on the All-Metro Team. 

At the state tournament in Bossier City, Lanosga swiftly pinned all five of his opponents in the first two-minute period, with the first two succumbing in merely 10 seconds each. Finishing his senior season with a 39-4 record, he committed to wrestling for the United States Naval Academy in college.

Jesuit’s wrestling program also celebrated coach Jonathon Orillion ’01 as Coach of the Year. Under Orillion’s leadership, the team has seen remarkable progress, resulting in an impressive victory at the state championships.

Representing Jesuit on the First All-Metro Team were junior Bodi Harris (38-5 at 120 pounds), senior Patrick Matthews (38-13 at 175 pounds), and senior Jackson Calderaro (42-2 at 215 pounds), alongside Lanosga (39-4 at 285 pounds).

The Second Team also featured several Jesuit athletes: sophomore Michael Barnett (34-5 at 106 pounds), junior Jose Rincon (33-11 at 126 pounds), sophomore J.P. Webre (36-12 at 132 pounds), freshmen Isaac Orillion (38-8 at 144 pounds), junior Harris Treuting (33-9 at 157 pounds), and senior Arthur Schott (21-6 at 165 pounds).
