Blue Jay Bowling Knocks Down Holy Rosary for a Win
Jesuit bowling picked up a 20-7 victory over Holy Rosary at AMF All Star Lanes in Kenner on Monday, Jan. 26.
The Blue Jays shot the highest team game of the day with 1,200 in the opening game of the match. Senior Ben Ainsworth led the team with a 595 series.
Coach John Prejean said he is honored to return this season at the request of the five returning seniors. “How can you say no to that?” he said. This year, he is assisted by his son, Andrew Prejean ’14, who competed with these returning players in the 2014 state semifinals.
Coach Prejean added, “I feel like we have a legitimate chance to compete in the final four again.”
Jesuit Opens Season with Jamboree vs. Brother Martin
Jesuit opened the bowling season with a jamboree against a strong Brother Martin team on Jan. 16 at AMF All Star Lanes in Kenner. Though the Blue Jays took a loss in the non-district game, they proved to be an able competitor this season.
In the first game each team won three head-to-head games, but Brother Martin won total points by nine pins. The second game went entirely to the Crusaders, and the third was won by the Blue Jays. Seniors Brett Lorio, Chris Ainsworth, and Ben Ainsworth, and junior Peyton Hidalgo all had game-high scores over 200.
