The LHSAA Division I State Championship Game featuring Jesuit and John Curtis is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 5 at 8:30 p.m. in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Jesuit fans attending the game are asked to sit on the River side (Gate C, Champions Square) of the Superdome. The Blue Jays are the visiting team
Students have declared the game a “White Out,” meaning they will be dressed in white shirts. They have requested that all Blue Jay fans consider doing the same.
A limited number of tickets for Friday’s game are on sale at the Jesuit switchboard on Banks Street. General admission tickets are $13 and will be available on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of this week from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Tuesday and Wednesday between 5:30 and 7 p.m. Jesuit will sell its allotment of tickets until they are sold out. Jesuit does not foresee selling tickets on Friday.
Tickets prices are set by the LHSAA. Fans may purchase tickets on Friday (Gameday) at the main Superdome Box Office on Poydras where general admission tickets are $16 and reserved seats in the Loge section are $19. A “facility fee” of 50 cents is added to each ticket purchased. One ticket will allow the fan access to all four games on Friday.
Jesuit will host a Pep Rally in the gym on Thursday, Dec. 4. The event will start at 7 p.m. All members of the Jesuit community, including students, parents, parents of alumni, and alumni and their families, are invited and encouraged to attend.
“I’m really hoping our alumni bring their families, especially their children, to see what Blue Jay Spirit is all about,” said athletic Dave Moreau.
The featured speaker will be Billy Murphy, who coached the last Blue Jay football team that played in the state championship game in 1978. The Blue Jay Marching Band, Jayettes, and Cheerleaders will all be there to welcome our 2014 team.
If the weather remains dry, parking will be allowed on Will Clark Field located directly behind the school.
