In the fall of 2017, Jesuit became the first Hillsborough County school to capture a swimming State Championship in 71 years. Under 22-year head coach Bill Shaffer, the Tigers were propelled to the 2A title by their extraordinary depth, taking second place in three relays and racking up 271 points to outdistance runner-up Pinecrest Gulliver Prep by 27. Brendan Driscoll '19 (pictured at top right with Shaffer) claimed Jesuit's lone individual State title in the 500 freestyle, and he earned the prestigious Hicks Award as the county's Outstanding Swimmer. A slew of other Tigers earned points at State, most notably seniors Sam Sands '18 and Chris Jennings '18, who finished in 3rd place or better in 7 of their combined 8 events. Jesuit swimming has been one of Florida's elite programs for decades, producing numerous All-County, State Champion, and collegiate swimmers. The Tigers have claimed a remarkable nine consecutive Region crowns, 21 straight District titles, and finished Top 3 at State each of the past four years, including runner-up finishes in 2014 and '15 before winning the 2017 crown. In 2015 and 2016, the Tigers won the State Championship in the 200 freestyle, and in 2015, Tommy Shaffer '16, who now swims at Army West Point, claimed the 100 freestyle gold medal at State and was named the county's Outstanding Swimmer. Byrne Litschgi '16, who now swims at the University of Chicago, and Tommy Shaffer led two relays to gold at State in 2015, the 200 freestyle and the 200 medley. In 2014, Austin Sellers '15, who now swims at North Carolina, capped a 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.
