The devastating flooding suffered by Houston this week has been impossible to ignore. Every day, more and more gut-wrenching images of entire neighborhoods submerged in water and families fleeing their homes appear on the news. Hurricane Harvey has killed over 30 people, and that number is likely to rise if the flooding doesn't subside. All of this is unfolding just...
Before he played at Brown University and with the Mavericks this summer, Steven Spieth '13 was just a regular student here at Jesuit. Just like his brother Jordan Spieth '11, he's a world class athlete, and this summer, he's been hanging around campus honing in his skills. So, I was able to sit down with him and ask him some...
Excelling in one sport? Remarkable. Excelling in two? Rare. Excelling in three? Nearly unheard of. But Bernie Hogan, of the Jesuit class of 1976, managed to do just that during his time here. He was a two-time all state football player, a two-time all state baseball player, and a two year letterman in basketball. He was given the Leo Ostick...

This statement held true January 28th and February 4th as the Rangers qualified an impressive sixth team to state and secured a top ten finish against national competition. The action began in late...
Many Jesuit students' bowling knowledge is comprised mostly of tips and tricks they learned while playing Wii Sports when they were younger. However, the sport in real life is much more technical (and difficult) than that. To nail strike after strike takes more than a simple flick of the wrist. That's why Jesuit Bowling's early 3-1 record is commendable. The...
You don't need to attend a debate tournament to see that it's one of the most difficult activities at Jesuit. It requires hours of preparation, a quick mind, and some serious note-taking skills. That is what makes Jesuit Debate's continued success so impressive. The debate team welcomed 2017 by traveling first to Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville, Tennessee, and later...
