Lacrosse Jays Seek Third Consecutive State Championship This Weekend
The Blue Jay lacrosse team travels to Lafayette on Saturday, April 26 with hopes of winning a third consecutive state championship. The state semi-finals and finals are being played at St. Thomas More.
The winner of the Jesuit vs. Byrd High School (Shreveport) semi-final game at 6 p.m., will face the winner of the St. Thomas More vs. St. Paul’s game, which will be played earlier in the day. The championship game is scheduled for Sunday, April 27 at 2 p.m.
Jesuit did not face Byrd or St. Thomas More during the regular season. The Jays beat St. Paul’s twice in 2014.
“Our young men have worked very hard all season long to prepare for this weekend,” said head coach Mike Brantley. “I expect it come down to who is the most focused, determined, and disciplined in head and heart,” he added.
It’s familiar territory for Brantley and his bunch. The Jays beat St. Paul’s to win Jesuit’s first lacrosse state championship in 2012. They beat the Wolves again in the 2013 state title game.
