The Jesuit High School soccer team checked off another milestone in its sensational 2017-18 season on Friday night (Feb. 2), defeating Jefferson 4-0 for the District title.

The Tigers scored two early goals, by Andres Cartaya ’18 and Connor Stuart ’19, to quickly nullify the Dragons’ home field advantage. Second-half goals by Quintin Hoggard ’18 and Noah Kurtz ’18 provided insurance and established the final margin, while goalkeeper Thomas Knipe ’19 tallied Jesuit’s 18th shutout of the season.

The Tigers, who won the prestigious Tampa Bay Invitational earlier this season, who have won 25 of 26 matches, and who cracked the top 10 in the MaxPreps national rankings (currently No. 8), now have added District Champions to their mantle. It marks the 32nd time in the past 34 seasons Jesuit soccer has won the District, and the Tigers are 5-for-5 under head coach Eric Sims ’95.

The next challenge is the Region, which begins Wednesday night at Jesuit with a Region Quarterfinal match against Seminole Osceola (10-5-1). If the Tigers advance to the Region Semifinal, it will be played Saturday at Jesuit at 7:00pm, vs. either Boca Ciega or Jefferson.

At Jesuit, we are responding in a dynamic way to the changing needs of education in the 21st century.
It is an exciting era, with the constant infusion of new technology and the increasing emphasis on student engagement in the learning process.
In 2014 Jesuit claimed the FHSAA's highest honor among all Class 5A schools in academics (Academic Team Champion) and athletics (All-Sports Award).
Each and every gift makes a difference to the students of Jesuit High School as they strive to become "Men for Others."
