Jesuit High School Tampa
Forming young men in the Tampa Bay area since 1899
Men For Others


Jesuit swimming has been among Florida's elite programs for decades, producing numerous All-County and collegiate swimmers. Under veteran coach Bill Shaffer, Jesuit has claimed seven consecutive Region crowns (in the photo below the team is celebrating No. 7), 19 consecutive District titles, and back-to-back Class 2A State runner-up finishes. In 2014, Austin Sellers '15, who now swims at North Carolina, capped an historic season at the State Meet with three individual silver medals and a gold, winning the title in the 100 breaststroke and coming within 0.18 of a state record. In 2015, Tommy Shaffer '16, who now swims at West Point, claimed the 100 freestyle gold medal at State and, like Sellers, was named the county Swimmer of the Year. Byrne Litschgi '16 and Shaffer also helped two relays win gold medals at State in 2015, the 200 freestyle (with Will Sands '17 and Sam Sands '18) and the 200 medley (with Chris Jennings '18 and Matthew Dieffenthaller '19).
