JESUIT’S ATHLETIC FUTURE IS BRIGHT WITH APPROVAL FOR INSTALLATION OF STADIUM LIGHTS

Jesuit High School Sacramento is thrilled to announce that the County of Sacramento has approved its stadium lighting project. On June 4, 2024, the Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 to uphold the unanimous approval vote by the Planning Commission earlier this spring. The installation of permanent stadium lights at Marauder Stadium marks a significant milestone for the school and its athletic program.

“The journey to get to this point has been long and arduous, but it has been made easier because of great partners - including all at Jesuit High School, our partners in the neighborhood, and our partners at the County of Sacramento,” said Chris Alling, Jesuit High School’s president. “We know the addition of lights in Marauder Stadium will obviously benefit our students and their families, especially our student-athletes, but it is our sincere belief that it will also enhance the neighborhood and the greater community beyond Jesuit High School.”

The first Friday night football game in Marauder Stadium will be on August 30, 2024, vs Rio Americano High School. Jesuit will still host the game, even if the construction and installation of the permanent lights still need to be completed, using commercial industrial-grade temporary lights.

“We look forward to engaging with local businesses to create a great community environment around Friday night football games. Football, soccer, lacrosse, and track and  field programs have roughly 400 student-athletes that use the stadium.  Operating an entire athletics program with stadium lights will allow all student-athletes equitable access to practice and games without mortgaging class time. Today is a day that will be looked back on as a historic moment in time for those programs. We look forward to seeing how this impacts them positively moving forward,“ shared Athletic Director Hank Weinberger.
