Jesuit soccer tops nation

Jesuit High School was honored Friday as the nation's top boys soccer team in the fall by MaxPreps and the Army National Guard.

Most boys soccer teams around the country play in the fall, but some, including those in Southern California, compete in the winter.

The Marauders went 27-1-1, tied for the state lead with 23 shutouts and won their 10th Sac-Joaquin Section Division I championship.

The players and coaches were recognized during Jesuit's spring sports rally.

The Marauders finished No. 2 nationally in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America's fall rankings.
