Jesuit Continues Hot Start to Season Versus Westview

A large crowd packed Jesuit High School’s Knight Gym on September 23 versus the Westview Wildcats. Jesuit came into this game riding a nine-game winning streak, while Westview had only lost one out of ten. The game started out tight with Jesuit up 16-13 halfway through the first set, but the Crusaders created some distance between them, winning the first set 25-18. 

The scrappy Wildcats continued to challenge through the second set. Every time the Saders would seem to pull away, Westview answered with a run of their own. The Crusaders would ultimately win the set 25-19.

It was a battle between the two teams in the third set as they went into a timeout even at 5-5. The Wildcats were able to combat spikes from Jesuit’s hitters exceptionally, allowing no easy points. A fantastic third set by senior Tess Massingale allowed Jesuit to go on a couple runs, winning the set 25-17. 

In the end, the Crusaders showed up and showed out in front of the biggest crowd of the season. 


Jesuit received a huge game from Freshman setter Jackie Carle. Carle, who had become accustomed to being senior Hannah Nguyen’s backup, showed tremendous poise and was utilized the majority of the game, coming in halfway through the first set. She would go on to finish the game, providing setting to dynamic outside hitter’s Isabel Patterson and Ceanna O’Loughlin.
