Jesuit High School
Father Barry Basketball Tournmanet By Charles Fries ‘14 This past weekend, Jesuit High School hosted the 40th Annual Father Barry Basketball Tournament. Eight teams battled it out for tournament glory. Jesuit started off the tournament with a dominant 77-51 win over Xavier Prep from Melbourne, Australia. In the second round, Jesuit played St. Ignatius from San Francisco and won by four points in overtime. The Marauders took first place by defeating St. Mary’s of Stockton 80-69. Isaiah Bailey was named MVP, and Lake Lutes and Nick Hilton received All-Tourney honors. Compared to be previous years, there was an extremely large turnout of Jesuit students and fans who supported the team throughout their championship run. The Galley Crew, led by Head Cheerleader John Howe, helped the Marauders rally from ten points down in the game versus St. Ignatius. Overall, the tournament was a fantastic event, with a celebrated win by Jesuit and a great crowd turnout. Make sure to attend the rest of the Jesuit basketball games, as the team continues to prepare for a difficult Delta River League schedule.
A New Way to Read The Plank By Brett Soutiere ‘14 Aurasma is a free iPhone and iPad app that allows users to access Augmented Reality through a “trigger image.” The user must have the app on his or her device, make an account with Aurasma, and follow the specific channel of the person or group that made the “aura,” which can be a picture, video, link to a website, etc. After you’ve done all of these things, you can open the app, scan the trigger image and the aura will appear on your device. To find trigger images in The Plank or around campus, just look for a pirate symbol (right) which will serve as the water mark to let users know layered media accompanies a picture. To test this, follow the “jhsplank” Aurasma channel and scan the image to your right. In addition to The Plank, Aurasma will be used in places around campus, such as the library. Currently, a group of students is working with the Admission’s Office to create a virtual campus tour that visitors can take using their mobile device.

Christmas Tree Lane By John Howe ‘14 Dressed up in the latest styles and dancing down the stage, members of Jesuit High School’s senior class and their mothers took part in the annual Christmas Tree Lane (CTL) fundraiser. This fashion show and entertainment extravaganza is run by the Loyola Guild, which is celebrating its 57th year, to raise money for scholarships. The Loyola Guild, consisting of women whose sons attend Jesuit, was actually started before the school opened. The Loyola Guild was created to raise funds to bring a Jesuit High School to Sacramento. Christmas Tree Lane was the group’s first attempt to fundraise. In the early years, cookies and handmade Christmas ornaments were sold. Now, Christmas Tree Lane hosts roughly 1,800 people over the two-day event and there are three showings. CTL is a great kick off to the holiday season and always follows Thanksgiving. A few people have admitted to attending every single year, which is a testament to the community and heartwarming feeling CTL provides. This year’s theme was “The Promise for Christmas,” and the event was chaired by Lori Estipular and Jennifer Sweeney. Choreography was done by Pamela Kay Lourentzos. The Woodlake Hotel (formerly the Raddison) hosted. Every year, the Loyola Guild contributes over $100,000 to Jesuit for tuition assistance, and throughout its history, has donated over three million dollars, all made possible through Christmas Tree Lane.
New Year’s Resolutions
The Buoyancy Boat Races
By Riley Spieler ‘17 As New Year’s gets closer, it is time again to resolve to change ourselves for the better. Whether or not we follow up on these promises is a matter of self-discipline and perseverance. Here are the resolutions a few Jesuit students, faculty and staff: Brennan Nelson (Senior)- “I want to get accepted into college.”
Anton Gutierrez (Freshman)- “Next year, I would like to work on my school work and studying more efficiently and with less procrastination.”
Mrs. Van Liefde (Counsler)- “To be present in my everyday life and to focus on the ‘now.’”
Stephan Reynolds (Sophomore)- “I want to be more active in my community service.” Mr. O’Connor (Teacher)- “I don’t have one because I know that I’ll fail miserably. I’ll probably go to the gym for about a week after New Year’s like everyone else in my neighborhood, then stop.”
Thomas Hart (Junior)- “I want to learn to speak Swahili.”
By Tristan Mullany ‘15 Last Monday, the AP Physics class kicked of the week with a boat racing competition during fourth period. The goal was to see whose boat could get to the other side of the pool and back the fastest without sinking. The catch? The boats had to be made out of bubble rap, cardboard and tape! Students had to combine water displacement with hydrodynamics to construct a boat that would float and move quickly. “It’s a box and a paddle. That’s it!” said Senior Jared Camillo. The objective was for students to learn about buoyant force and that a greater displaced volume of water paired with a lighter weight results in greater buoyancy. Kevin Vas Dias led his vessel, named “A Piece of Ship,” to victory by a couple lengths, while ships like “The Newlander” could barely stay afloat. When asked about how his group came up with their ship design, Paul Henderson said, “We basically researched how actual boats are shaped, and mimicked them for our design.” The boat race was one of the highlights thus far in AP Physics. “From a spectator’s view, the race was actionpacked and amusing,” said Blake Thomas.

By John Lambert ‘15 With the Food Drive in full swing, the mad rush for students to get their food in by the deadline is sure to occur soon. With only a few thousand pounds collected, Jesuit’s goal of 80,000 pounds of food may seem out of reach to some, yet the Food Drive collection team is optimistic that the student body will work together to achieve that mark. Student participation in the Food Drive is key to its success. Without student volunteers and the Executive Council, the Food Drive wouldn’t function. Any student can get involved with the Food Drive in a variety of ways. “To get more involved than just donating food, students can help unload the food on Friday [December 13th] at Stanford Settlement,” states Junior Class President Kencell Nixon. “They can also donate to Stanford Settlement after the drive.” The Food Drive is one of Jesuit’s richest traditions, bringing students together and showing our
community what it means to be, “Men for Others.” Jesuit’s relationship with the Stanford Settlement, the organization to which the food will be donated, continues to grow as each Christmas passes. With over 700 underpriviledged families signed up to receive food through the Stanford Settlement, Jesuit’s contribution has been and will continue to be a major supplier of food. “The Food Drive makes the holidays normal for families,” Nixon continues. “Many families cannot afford to keep their houses warm in winter and have to choose between a warm meal [and] a warm home. This food helps bridge the gap between hunger and thriving.” Overall, Jesuit High School unites around the Christmas Food Drive. Whether it is the sense of community or desire to help others that fuels this terrific event, one thing is for sure: Jesuit is making an everlasting impact on the community.
It’s about that time of year again. Finals are just around the corner, and along with them comes the Annual Pancake Breakfast. This year, the free event will be held in the Harris Center on Wednesday, December 18. The idea for the free breakfast came from Mrs. Rose, who said, “We started the Pancake Breakfast to lower the stress during finals. College campuses often have midnight pancake breakfasts during finals, so I thought it would be fun to offer something like that here.” Rose continued, “The goal is just to have a free breakfast and spread a little Christmas cheer before the semester comes to an end. It’s a way to celebrate accomplishments, and enjoy one another’s company. It’s just meant to be a fun meal among friends.” Make sure to stop by the Harris Center on Wednesday for some free pancakes, friends, and down time before your exams!
Our Lady of Guadalupe Mass
By Mac Yates ‘15 Are there any extra coats laying around your house? The Jesuit High School Coat Drive is happy to take and donate them to Loaves and Fishes. This year there’s been a bit of a cold snap and coats are greatly needed for the homeless and those who are unable to afford a warm coat. Started by Mr. David Novak, the coat drive has been a donation project of Jesuit for several years now, allowing students to donate coats and other useful clothing items for the needy. “I go there [Loaves and Fishes] a lot, and I see all the need,” said Maureen L. Pryor, who has run the coat drive for the last few years. Ms. Pryor and her student helpers collect coats before and after school each day. They load the clothes into a white van which is in the faculty parking area in the student pick up/drop off circle along Jacob Lane. They trasport the clothes to Loaves and Fishes, Annual Coat Drive. Your donation can make where they are distrubuted to the homeless. So, search through your wardrobe and do- sure the homeless stay warm this winter! nate any unused coats or other clothing to the
Fr. Phil Ganir, S.J. returned on Thursday, December 12, to preside over the Our Lady of Guadalupe Mass. During his time at Jesuit, Fr. Ganir taught English, Liturgy Workshop, and Chamber Choir.
Winter Musical Why this particular musical? “Jesuit celebrates its 50th anniversary this year,” says Trafton. “We wanted to do something big and family friendly so that as many people as possible can come. Unofficially, this year we’re devoting our shows to what I call our ‘season of love.’ We started with Romeo and Juliet, a great tragic love story, and now we have Beauty and the Beast, which is a wonderfully romantic and positive love story.” With this musical, there are ample openings for individuals wanting to play an integral part. “There’s an opportunity for about twelve performers to have sizable and significant characters to play. We don’t precast, and one of the things we look forward to are the surprises. The people that come out of the woodwork and give it a shot, and then end up getting a great part to play,” Trafton shared. Opening night is March 6, 2014, with performances taking place during the following two weeks.
By Adam McGrew ‘15 As far as high school theatre goes, Jesuit’s program is one of the best, and the Winter Musical will most definitely uphold the Black Box’s superb reputation. This year, Jesuit Drama has already outdone itself with a stellar and unique production of Romeo and Juliet, and the Winter Musical, Beauty and the Beast, will equally wow audiences. This musical, like its predecessor, will not strictly adhere to the original production. It contains a unique perspec-
tive that will be sure to engage audiences. “We are changing none of the original source material,” Mr. Ed Trafton, artistic director, says. “All we are doing is going back to a concept that we used many years ago in which we invented an imaginary Catholic high school that comes together and puts on their version of the show. So the only spin on it is that you are watching students, playing the part of students, who are putting on the play.”

Lessons and Carols
By Charles Fries ‘14
By Carson Richards ‘15 It’s not every day that nationally-recognized music groups perform at local venues. It’s even less common when they do it for free. Luckily, the Jesuit Chamber Choir is not like most other groups. On Tuesday, December 10th, the Chamber Choir, accompanied by Mr. Trafton and professional instramentalists, sang at St. Mary’s church. The choir performed popular Christmas carols such as “Joy to the World,” as well as litugical readings. Even with uncomfortable conditions due to a broken heater, many people came to support the award-winning group led by Mr. Rallanka. “It was freezing,” said Junior Jared Borg.” But the fact
that so many people were willing to put up with the cold shows just how good this choir is.” For the new members of Jesuit’s elite choir, this concert was the first time they performed in front of such a large audience. Despite this nervousness, the well-trained singers were able to astound the audience with beautiful renditions of classics like “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” and “Angels We Have Heard on High.” By the end of the night, the initially reluctant rookies were wishing that they had more time. “We got to go all out with our tuxedos and everything,” said Junior Chamber Choir member Ravi Ranatunga. “We had a blast!”
Padgram is an Instagram iPad client specifically designed for the iPad. Since the native Instagram application forces iPad users to view their Instagram feed only in portrait mode on the zoomed-in iPhone version, Padgram is a great convenience. The Padgram app comes with many of the features you get from the original Instagram app along with a variety of other features that make discovering interesting images on Instagram easier. In addition, Padgram features a landscape mode--a feature that even the original Instagram app lacks--that turns your image feed into a simple tile view, allowing the user to view a whole host of pictures in a short amount of time. Unfortunately, one of the downsides to the application is when a user wishes to publish a picture, he must upload it via the main Instagram client, as it is against Instagram’s privacy policies to allow third party clients to upload images. In short, Padgram is an excellent application for those who wish to view, like, or even comment on Instagram posts. If you are looking for a fully-featured Instagram photo publisher, stick with the original app. Padgram is available on the Apple App Store for free.

Why You Should Get A Playstation 4
By Michael Flodin ‘15 Having come out in the U.S. on November 15, Sony’s Playstation 4 has been an immediate hit, selling over one million units in 24 hours at a price of $400 per unit. Why is it so popular when competing with the Xbox One? “The PS4 has an all new design allowing new graphics, new games, and technology which creates the ultimate next-gen gaming experience,” said Junior Alexander Dodier. Another bonus of the PS4 is the DualShock 4 controller, which is basically an improved DualShock
3 controller that is more comfortable to use and can be charged even when the PS4 is off. “We built a system of unprecedented power,” said Andrew House, President and group Chief Executive Officer of SonyComputer Entertainment Inc., while at the same time claiming that it is “ten times” better than any home console coming before it. However, one of the problems with buying a PS4 is that there are not many popular games currently available, although Call of Duty:
Ghosts and Battlefield 4 are out right now. If you are unsure about buying the PS4, the PS3 is still a good option. It is cheaper, has more games, and is actually better as a media player. Still, if you are a serious gamer, you should definitely go for the PS4, as all its features for gaming, such as the graphics, are far superior to the PS3. Arguably, the Playstation 4 is the best gaming console currently available on the market.
Xbox One- Built for the Future By Vincent McCarty ‘16 Xbox One, “the system built for the future,” was released November 22nd in 13 different countries. With it’s release, Microsoft has leapt to the pinnacle of gaming. It has an 8-core x86 processor that lets you instantly switch between a game and your favorite entertainment apps. You can also watch TV on your console by connecting your cable or satellite box to it. Xbox One holds 500Gb of data and 8Gb of RAM, allowing you to save many more of your games and allowing you to run them with much greater detail and precision. In addition, the Xbox One comes with a Blu Ray DVD player to watch all those high def movies. The running power of the Xbox One is what you would find on a supercomputer. The controller was molded to fit the human hand in the most comfortable way possible. Microsoft also perfected the Kinect, making it much more precise, more intuitive than before, more responsive, and fully integrated into the Xbox One. The Xbox One is built for today’s console gamer, who also wants a fully integrated media player.

By Jackson Cline ‘17 The Varsity wrestling team recently travelled to Vista del Lago for a tournament. The team came in an impressive fifth place out of twenty plus teams. Anthony Wesley, Hubert Enriquez and Alex Elko took the gold in their respective weight classes, while Sam Nettles came in fifth place.
JV wrestlers took part in the Mesa Verde Tournament in early December. Nate Perry, Kyle Hagy, Andrew Hoppe, and Sal Ordonez all earned medals. “Wrestling requires dedication and a lot of will power. The sport is one on one on the mat,”
said Freshman Josh Wiggen. “We have done a lot of running, push ups and weight lifting, and we hope it pays off,” Wiggen concluded. The Varsity and JV wrestling teams will begin Delta River League competition soon.
