METAIRIE, La. (WGNO) --The Jesuit Blue Jays earned their fifth consecutive Lacrosse State Championship over cross-town rival Brother Martin, 15-6 Sunday.

There hasn't been a team in Louisiana to dominate lacrosse quite like Jesuit. The state title wrapped up an undefeated district season for Jesuit.

"The thing that I think is truly remarkable about this team and about this win and the season, in general, is that it was always a focus on team work. It was never about an individual. It was never about me or anyone else. It was always focus on the team," said Defensive MVP and Goalie Rob Hinyub.

He credits the defense as a whole on the success of the season. Sunday, they held Brother Martin scoreless in the third. Offensively, whenever the Crusaders scored, the Jays has an answer.

"We had good coaching. Our offense really clicked together. We had three good juniors who could rotate in with myself. So, the offense was just on point all season," said Max Murret, Jesuit's Offensive MVP.

When asked how Jesuit continues to earn the state crown year after year, Coach Steve Krobert said his team works hard on the little things.

"We always laugh because our practices, it's the best team playing against the best team. When you have that type of competition on your own team, no one can handle us, they can't defend against us," he said.

Brother Martin Coach Greg Anderson is proud of the effort from his team.

"All season, our speed and athleticism is what got us through to the point we're at. So we just wanted to double down on that and we tried our best. It's hard to play a team that's that disciplined, they just kept pushing back against us," he said.
