On February 7, 2018, eighteen Jesuit High School Marauders signed letters of intent to play their respected sports at the collegiate level. Nine signed a National Letter of Intent for an athletic scholarship, and nine signed a letter to commit to play at their university.

Sports, ranging in variety from diving to rugby, were represented at National Signing Day. Each athlete will attend a reputable university, such as Matthew Condrin ’18 who commited University of Washington for crew and David Zingaro ’18 to who committed to Maryville University for lacrosse.

Cooper Hunt ’18 signed his letter of intent to play golf at the University of California, Berkeley  and is excited to continue his career at the collegiate level.  

“Ever since I was young, I wanted to play collegiate sports and golf was the first thing that came to mind,” said Cooper. “I’ve lived on a golf course ever since I was born, so it was convenient for me.”  

All of these student-athletes have excelled in their respected sports at Jesuit. Collegiate level athletics will continue to develop their various skills and prepare them for a more rigorous competition.

“First of all, they have talent, but second they all have drive. You’ve got to have a couple things,” said Athletic Director Greg Harcos ’89. “You’ve got to have the talent to do it; you’ve got to have the passion. You’ve got to have those things and these guys are put in their places and they put their time in. They’ve contributed well to our programs and we’ve been the benefit of their efforts.”

Jesuit has prepared many student-athletes by setting them on the right path to pursue high level education as well as a promising future in athletics.
