Dominic is currently Editor-in-Chief in his third year working for The Roundup, having served previously as a Reporter and Junior Associate Editor. He is President, Brass Captain, and Low Brass Lieutenant of the Jesuit-Ursuline Ranger Band, a tenor trombone. He plays in the Jesuit Basketball Association (JBA) league, and his other school involvement includes Eucharistic Ministry, Freshman and Kairos Retreat Leadership, ESPN Club, National Honor Society, Spanish National Honor Society, Big Brothers, and Entrepreneurship Club. Dom enjoys spending time with friends and family and watching his favorite sports teams: the Dallas Cowboys and the Dallas Mavericks. He lives with his parents, younger brother and sister, and two dogs. His favorite TV shows are Sportscenter, SpongeBob, and The Office. Some of his hobbies include collecting sports memorabilia, reading, and golfing. Someday, he hopes to have a career in the business or medical field.

Mitchell Opatowsky '15 slowly turns his head to face an alarm clock on his bed stand. The flashing LED display reads 5:45 AM, and a startled Opatowsky leaps out of bed. Snatching his Jesuit Crew tank top and shorts from his closet, he races out of the house, grabbing a Clif Bar on the way. He jumps into his...
Most concert bands practice months to put on a performance, but the Texas Private School Music Educators' Association (TPSMEA) All-State Band is not like most bands. It's a collection of some of the state's most talented high school musicians, and it lasts only a short 3 days. This year, seven Jesuit students attended the All-State weekend. In November, they...
The 52nd annual Knights of Columbus Dallas Classic Tournament was held Thursday, Dec. 4 – Saturday, Dec. 6 in Jesuit's own Walsh Gym. The tournament hosted eight teams from across Texas. Jesuit Head Basketball Coach Chris Hill called the tournament "a tradition in the Jesuit basketball program," adding that "we are so lucky to have the support of the Knights...
Theology teacher Mrs. Michelle Elchlepp has been teaching at Jesuit for years, but that doesn't mean she ever stopped learning. In fact, she's taken several courses at Southern Methodist University (SMU), including multiple art-focused classes. SMU even has its own art museum, the Meadows Museum.
