SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCRA) — Thirteen student-athletes from Jesuit High School signed letters of intent to play college sports on National Signing Day, adding to a long list of others who preceded them at the school.
“This is a big deal. I’ve waited a long time for this,” said Christopher Macasaet, who accepted a golf scholarship from the University of Pacific.
Student-athletes who signed letters of intent at Jesuit High School added to the school’s tradition of athletic excellence. In case you missed KCRA 3’s Noon News… check out their recap of our Letter of Intent Signing Day by clicking here!
Bryce, a senior forward, was a 3-time All Tourney selection in the month of December (Fr. Barry Christmas Classic, Gridley Invitational & San Dune Classic), helping lead Jesuit to two tourney championships and a runner-up finish. Pressley averaged 13.4 pts, 7.6 rebounds & 2.1 blocks per game for the month of December. Bryce is a key contributor to the #1 ranked Marauders, and hopes to help guide them to a Delta River League Championship.
Three of our sophomore Jesuit soccer players set up and ran a soccer tournament for little people in Crocker Park on Saturday, October 27, 2011. Sacramento hosted a convention that weekend. The participants ranged in age from 4 to 20 years old.
Thanks to Niko Arellanes, John Bovill, and Tucker Bone for making this a great day.
Congratulations to Varsity Football player Josh Hines who was named a Scholar Athlete by the local chapter of the National Football Foundation/Hall of Fame. Josh will be recognized along w/ other area athletes at a dinner at the Radisson Hotel in March.
This year’s team is a blend of three returning senior starters Austin Beckwith, Matt Giancanelli and Antonio Gualco, and experienced senior players Mason Kassis and Tommy Savant and inexperienced but undefeated juniors. The team played in two summer tournaments together and is in the process of blending a starting line-up and rotation. The entire team is excited about the numerous talented players and the potential of Section Playoffs. But prior to the playoffs, the varsity team is entered in the John Schmidt Tournament which is functionally the Northern California championship.
The 2010 Varsity Soccer team hopes to continue or surpass last year’s successes. The 2009 squad won the Delta River League with a record of 10-0. This team finished the season as the Division I Sac-Joaquin North Section Champions and posted an overall record of 28-1, a #1 Region Four ranking and a #2 National Ranking in the NSCAA Top 50 poll. The Marauders were ranked in both the NSCAA and ESPNRise Polls. This team had one of the most difficult schedules in the Western Region playing competition against teams such as Jesuit-Portland and Pius X of New Mexico.
The Marauders are working hard to return to post season play. But first, Jesuit will face the challenge of a demanding schedule; 12 of its 13 opponents have been in the playoffs in either or both of the last two campaigns. Renewed rivalries with neighborhood opponents Rio Americano and Del Campo join Christian Brothers, Franklin and Laguna to round out a rigorous preseason slate. Jesuit then begins play in the reconfigured Delta River League, which includes previous opponents Folsom, Sheldon and Pleasant Grove as well as newcomers Ponderosa and Oak Ridge.
