After picking up Coach Bob Bauman the 500th win of his career, Jesuit appears to have turned a corner in its season. The Tigers defeated Sarasota Riverview 3-0 and Bradenton Manatee 4-1 last week in the Sarasota High School Tournament before the final against Palmetto was postponed due to an unplayable field.
Bauman said he would be looking into rescheduling the final, and that he was pleased with the way his side had performed in the other two games of the tournament.
“Both (Sarasota Riverview and Manatee) were unbeaten, both teams had a lot of veteran players, and we played very well,” Bauman said. “We had guys really step up, Brett Durrance had a really good tournament, I think he had three goals in a couple of games, Stephen Gathman had three in a couple of games, so we really have things rolling pretty well.”
The Tigers face three district games against Spoto, Jefferson and Blake before they host the High School Invitational over the holiday period.
