With good performances from Evan Post and Grady Brown, Jesuit recorded its best total score since 2021, while putting themselves in the driver seat for the race for the Metro league championship and a spot in the State tournament in May.

Jesuit solidified a state championship berth after finishing 2nd in the Metro League at Portland Golf Club on Monday, April 24th, despite missing key contributor Mason Zimmerman who is currently out with an  injury. 

Grady Brown and Jack Harrington led the team with under par rounds of 71, along with Joseph Ulrich and Evan Post putting up solid scores. A very scorable golf course, Kamaljit Singh of Sunset shot 67, along with three other players breaking 70, and Sunset shooting an incredible score of 284, 4 under par as a team. 

Jack Harrington hit wedges on 11 and 14 to within 5 feet, making birdie on both holes, including 15 pars and 1 bogey throughout the rest of his day contributing to a steady round, along with his best score of the season so far, at 1 under par 71. 

Evan Post started off with two straight up and downs, resulting in a -3 thru 6 start. Post slowed down on the back nine shooting a score of 41 to complete the day with a four over 76. 

Grady Brown played a solid round of golf as well, hitting 15 greens, with a -4 start on the front side, Brown was able to hold on to a 1 under par 71. 

Joseph Ulrich had a very controlled round hitting 16 greens in regulation and carding a 3 over par 75. There were low scores all around the golf course on a beautiful Monday afternoon. 

The Jesuit boys finished looking forward to their next week at Meriwether National Golf Course where they were gonna finish off the metro league having already clinched the Metro Championship.

The last event of the Metro League season, Jesuit had one of their worst days of the year at a very tough golf course in some very firm and fast conditions. However, they were still able to win the Metro League behind 1st Team All-Metro finishes from Jack Harrington, Mason Zimmerman, and Grady Brown. 

“Listen, congrats on the win. We did what we were supposed to do. We have to be better though. Everyone has to step up. Competitive teams will show up at state, and we have to be ready for that. We know that we’re one of those teams though, and we have to play like it, the way we have for the last few weeks,” coach Jason Barry said. 

The team returns to practice at Langdon Farms this week, along with the varsity players going through their routines to get ready to compete for a state title. Attention to detail will prove to be the determining factor for the Jesuit Boys to complete their State championship hopes. Teams like West Linn, Lake Oswego, Grants Pass, and Sunset are major competitors to beat at Emerald Valley on May 15th and 16th.
