Jesuit, ranked fourth in 1A, ninth overall in the state and 50th nationally by MaxPreps, is the state semifinals for the first time. The Tigers have tough task against going up against Boca Raton Saint Andrew’s, which is ranked first in the class and the state and third nationally. Still, Jesuit has the talent to advance. Chase Minacci, who had his first-ever lacrosse lesson from assistant coach Noah Menendez a decade ago, is a four-year starter. Three players — Colin Kruger (Boston), SK Moore (High Point) and Antonin Hoppmann-Solario (Haverford) — have all committed to play in college. And Dylan Causey has already set the school’s all-time saves record. There also are players who have experience winning state titles in other sports. Luke Arena, Trip Boyle, Connor Dooley and Peter Pesansky were all on the Tigers’ football team that won the 6A title.
