Holy Cross and Jesuit to tangle on Friday



At the Fontainebleau "Bulldog Duals" on November 17th, Holy Cross defeated Catholic League rival Jesuit 37-28.  On Friday, Jesuit will try to avenge that loss at Holy Cross.  Spectators are encouraged to arrive at 6 p.m.

Holy Cross, considered by some to be the second strongest team in the city (Brother Martin is deemed the strongest), brings a 12-0 dual meet record and last week's Sam Sara Invitational championship into the fray. Jesuit is returning from the Mid-American Nationals in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The Blue Jays are 6-2 in dual meets this season, with their other loss occurring in the finals of the Catholic Duals, to Catholic, 40-30.

The possible match-ups between the two teams are based on participation in the Sam Sara Invitational (Holy Cross) and the Mid-American Nationals (Jesuit):
