The Oregonian named Jesuit High School the Oregonian Cup recipient for the 6A activities division for the 2012-13 academic year. This marks the ninth year in a row and the tenth time in the past 14 years that Jesuit has earned the Oregonian Cup for outstanding achievements in academics, co-curricular activities, athletics and sportsmanship.
"Our Jesuit High School community is honored to have been awarded the Oregonian Cup for the 2012-13 school year. I would like to thank the Oregonian for continuing to recognize excellence in young people in all of the secondary schools in Oregon," said John Gladstone, president of Jesuit. "This recognition is especially significant because achievement is noted in the areas of academics, activities, sportsmanship, and athletics. We applaud and honor our students at Jesuit as well as the many other students throughout our state who have excelled in these areas."
"This is truly an award that compliments the entire school," said Mike Hughes, athletic director. "It is testament to our efforts at Jesuit High School to nurture the entire student — spiritually, intellectually, physically, emotionally, and aesthetically."
