Jesuit graduate Jordan Spieth has become only the second golfer to win the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship more than once. Perhaps you’ve heard of the other guy: Tiger Woods.
Jesuit graduate Jordan Spieth has made it to the quarterfinals of the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship, which is being contested in Bremerton, Wash. Spieth won the golf tournament in 2009.
Meanwhile, in Olympia Fields, Ill., Ursuline senior Talia Campbell has earned a berth in the quarterfinals of the U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship.
Sports editor Chuck Cox and photo editor Chris McGathey are en route to Houston, where the Texas High School Lacrosse League will crown two champions Sunday. It’s entirely possible that both championship teams will represent Preston Hollow schools.
In Division I, ESD will take on Jesuit in one semifinal, and St. Mark’s will face Coppell in the other. In Division II, Hillcrest will take on some school called TMI-The Episcopal School of Texas. (TMI apparently stands for Texas Military Institute.) The winner of that game will then face either Stony Point or Clear Lake.
If you can find the Fox College Sports Atlantic channel on your satellite or cable lineup, you can watch the championship games from the comfort of your living room. If only I had known about that before signing off on Chuck and Chris’ road trip.
The Park Cities Rotary Club will get a first-hand account today of the devastation in Japan. Adm. Patrick Walsh, a Jesuit graduate who is the commander of the Navy’s Pacific Fleet and the commander of the Joint Support Force, is scheduled to speak at the club’s weekly meeting, which starts at noon on the second floor of Maggiano’s in NorthPark Center.
For a while, a storm has been brewing about Lowe’s plans to add a large gas station to its lot at Forest Lane and Inwood Road. Residents from Melshire Estates as well as members of the Jesuit and St. Rita’s community are rallying together to prevent the proposal from passing.
On March 7, concerned parties met with Councilwoman Ann Margolin and city representatives to discuss the issue. Now the debate is moving past the point of conversation into one of action. In order to defeat the proposal, a petition with at least 200 signatures and a strong show of community opposition is needed at the upcoming City Plan Commission meeting.
If you’re passionate about this issue, mark your calendar for next Thursday.
WHERE: Dallas City Hall, council chambers
WHEN: 1:30 p.m., March 24
WHY: To voice your opinion about the Lowe’s Rezoning application

When the Super Bowl came to Cowboys Stadium, Jerry Jones wasn’t the only Preston Hollow resident to benefit. The Jesuit Rangerettes, comprised of 40 Ursuline Academy students, along with the W.T. White Caballeras and the drill team at Thomas Jefferson, performed with the Black Eyed Peas during halftime at Super Bowl XLV.
According to Rangerettes spokeswoman Lori Karol, the girls practiced with other drill teams from North Texas at “secret locations” leading up to the Super Bowl and at Cowboys Stadium two days before the big game. As an added bonus, they were able to meet the Black Eyed Peas during a dress rehearsal. Security was tight throughout the process, and no pictures were allowed on the field. For more photos outside the stadium, jump with me. Read More…
