Tigers Earn All-Sports Award
Posted 07/06/2018 11:03AM

The Jesuit High School athletic program, under the leadership of athletic director Terry Rupp '84, once again excelled in the Florida High School Athletic Association's 2017-18 All-Sports Award rankings, a.k.a. the FHSAA Floyd E. Lay Sunshine Cup.

The Tigers, with 79.8 points in Class 6A, again this year earned the No. 1 ranking among all boys sports programs in the Tampa Bay area, more than doubling the point total of runners-up Palm Harbor University (8A - 39.8 points) and Plant (8A - 37.8 points).

Jesuit was No. 2 among all boys sports programs in Class 6A, behind only Plantation American Heritage (86.5 points), and the Tigers were No. 5 overall statewide among all Florida schools in all classifications (see charts below).

Leading the way for Jesuit was the State champion swimming team (head coach Bill Shaffer), the District and Region champion golf (Nico Hohman '07) and tennis (Joe Curtis) teams, and the District champion baseball (Miguel Menendez), basketball (Neal Goldman), lacrosse (Ryan Henry), soccer (Eric Sims '95), and wrestling (Sal Basile) teams. Over the past five school years, Jesuit has claimed District titles in 47 of 60 opportunities. 

See below the Top 10 standings for the All-Sports Award rankings in 2017-18 for boys sports programs (1) in all Florida classifications, (2) in Class 6A, (3) among local private schools, and (4) among all Tampa Bay area schools. For years, Jesuit has topped the rankings among all local schools, and in 2013-14 Jesuit ranked No. 1 among all schools in Florida.
