Ranger Day 2021: Chariot Races

On October 22, 2021 Jesuit held their annual Ranger Day event as the main celebration of homecoming week. The day consisted of a pep rally, indoor games, outdoor games, and best of all the chariot races. This year the freshman homerooms were competing with their big brothers for the big brother trophy. The race consisted of many great themes that brought more fun to the already fun day. 

Between the heats of the race there were many performances conducted to entertain the community including the Jesuit-Ursuline Band, the Rangerettes, and the cheerleaders. These performances were helpful to prepare the next homeroom between heats of the race. 


Heat 1 Allen– Halloween- SR rider Diego Torrealba (Won) Boyle– Texas Independence Day- SR rider Brady Kinzer
Heat 2 Pitts– St. Ignatius Feast Day- SR rider Brody Pawsat (Won) Clark– Mother’s Day- SR rider Ryan Fleming
