April 17, 2024 — Jesuit High School Sacramento’s varsity rugby team has been selected to participate in the prestigious 2024 Sanix World Rugby Youth Tournament in Muakata City, Fukuoka, Japan. The international invitation marks a significant milestone as Jesuit High rugby will become the first team from the United States to compete in this international event.

The Sanix World Rugby Youth Tournament brings together top-tier high school rugby teams worldwide, including from countries such as South Korea, England, New Zealand, South Africa, Australia, Fiji, China and, for the first time, the United States. The tournament is held during the Japanese national holiday known as “Golden Week.” Jesuit high’s team will be in Japan from April 24-May 6, 2024.

“We are honored by this invitation, and it will be our Marauders first overseas tour,” said Andrew Acosta, head coach. “This will be a tremendous experience for our team and a great way for the rugby world to see Jesuit in action.”

With a second-place finish at the national tournament last year, USA Rugby recognized Jesuit High’s outstanding achievements and contributions to the sport and nominated the team to represent the U.S. in this prestigious event.

“Jesuit Rugby is part of a rich tradition of athletic excellence at Jesuit High School. This group of student-athletes and coaches are excited and humbled to represent not only their families and school but also the Sacramento region and the United States,” said President Chris Alling.
