Based on the latest hurricane forecast and guidance from local authorities, Jesuit High School’s campus will be closed from Tuesday, September 27 through Thursday, September 29. There will be no school activities these days. On Tuesday, classes will be conducted via asynchronous eLearning through Canvas. Assignments will be posted to course Canvas pages. Students who are able to access Canvas should check in with each class to keep up with content and work. Students who are unable to log on to Canvas due to hardship or circumstances caused by the storm will not be penalized. Tuesday afternoon, based on the projected trajectory of the storm and its effects, the school will provide subsequent communication regarding eLearning expectations for Wednesday and Thursday. Jesuit will continue to provide updates to parents via email, as well posts to the school website (www.jesuittampa.org), and social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram).
Jesuit tennis has captured the District title every year but one since 1992, and in 2019 the Tigers had a spectacular season.
Jesuit captured the Region for the 9th straight season advanced all the way to the Class 2A State Championship match. The Tigers finished as runner-up to Miami Gulliver Prep, equaling their best-ever result in the State Tournament. It was the sixth time Jesuit had finished second in the State, and first time since 2000. The Tigers defeated No. 1-seed Pensacola in a State Quarterfinal and No. 2 Jacksonville Bolles in a State Semifinal to advance to the Final. Sebastian Solano '20 (pictured) played three singles matches and three doubles matches in two days in the team competition while concurrently playing in the individual competition, where he finished as the 2A State runner-up. The District title in 2019 gave Jesuit its 24th District Championship in 25 seasons under head coach Joe Curtis.
With most of the team returning in 2020, the Tigers got off to a very strong start, going 8-0 against a rugged schedule. However, in mid-March the remainder of the season was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the 2022 season, the Tigers earned their 26th consecutive District Championship, led by Andre Botero '23 with a golden set (not allowing a single point in the set). They went on to win the Region after defeating Robinson High School 5-2 and Citrus High School 5-0 in the two days of competition.
The top returnees for Jesuit in 2023 include Cam Bailey '23, Botero, Ethan Fisch '23, Sebastian Johnson '24, and Christian Solano '24.
Among the notable alumni from Jesuit tennis is Ryler DeHeart '02, who advanced to the second round of the 2008 U.S. Open before succumbing to Rafael Nadal.
