Jesuit currently fields 15 sports representing 36 teams at various levels that are supported by more than 80 coaches. In our 49 years of existence, Jesuit has won 237 league championships and 99 section titles, more than any other boys program in the greater Sacramento region. During the 2010-2011 school year our Soccer team was ranked second in the nation and our Rugby team won the National Championship. Thirteen of our 15 sports reached their respective league or section championship game/tournament and 12 student athletes signed letters of intent to play a collegiate sport.
The baseball program at Jesuit High School exists to provide the prospective student-athlete with a well-rounded high school experience. Athletics are an integral part of the overall educational philosophy at Jesuit High School. The diamond is no different from the classroom, the laboratory, or lecture hall. Baseball at the high school level is a learning experience- a chance to mature through self-discipline, competition, sportsmanship, achievement and failure. Success and failure are not necessarily quantified in terms of wins, league titles, or section championships.
The philosophy of basketball at Jesuit High School is based on the assumption that all players are dedicated to the contributions they can make to the TEAM.
If we are to be successful, we must excel in the TEAM aspects of the game. We must be more dedicated than our opponents. We must be in better condition. We must be willing to subjugate personal glory for the good of the TEAM. And most important, we must be tougher physically and defensively than anyone we play.
The JHS lacrosse program was established as a club team in 2006. Following the success in 2006 and the growing popularity of lacrosse in the greater Sacramento area, the JHS program along with five other Sacramento area schools, joined CIF Sac-Joaqin section. In six seasons, JHS now fields very competitive Varsity and JV teams and lacrosse is a cut sport. Known as the “Fastest Sport on Foot” as well as a hard hitting and physical game, lacrosse requires young men to be in excellent physical condition.
“Our aim is not to produce a champion, but to provide an atmosphere where champions are inevitable. However, swimming is a means to an end; to build self-confidence, self-discipline, integrity, and courage for life.”
