Beating the buzzer on test day or game day occupies the thoughts of student-athletes. The month of March not only holds the NCAA tournament, but also the C.Y.O. Basketball Championship for area private grade schools. During this season’s CYO Basketball Championships, three Jesuit Academy basketball teams advanced to the championship games for their grade levels. The fifth grade team won the league championship, with the sixth and eighth grade teams taking second place titles.
Along with a strong academic program, Jesuit Academy offers a robust athletics program to provide students the chance to learn the virtues of teamwork, persistence, and having fun while playing. In the winter, students have the opportunity to play basketball. In the spring, students can participate in track. Jesuit Academy’s philosophy is that a student does not need to make a choice between excelling at a sport or in the classroom. A student can be good at both, with Jesuit Academy emphasizing success in all areas.
The fourth academic quarter and the track season begins Monday, March 17, giving Jesuit Academy students another chance to demonstrate what real students can do when they set their minds and heart to a goal.
