Men For Others


Jesuit swimming has been one of Florida's elite programs for decades, producing numerous All-County, State Champion, and collegiate swimmers. Under veteran coach Bill Shaffer, Jesuit has claimed a remarkable eight consecutive Region crowns, 20 straight District titles, and has finished in the Top 3 in the State each of the past three years, including runner-up finishes in 2014 and '15. Last season, in 2016, Jesuit defended its State Championship in the 200 freestyle (pictured at right, L-R, Chris Jennings '18, Stephen Dawes '17, Will Sands '17, Sam Sands '18). The year before, 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 Swimmer of the Year. Byrne Litschgi '16, who now swims at the University of Chicago, and 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.

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.
