In Division I, unbeaten top seed Jesuit and 2-time defending state champion St. Paul’s have already won to set up a showdown between the two dominant powers in the semifinals, set for 2 p.m. Saturday at John Ryan Stadium, while in Division III, No. 2 Lusher Charter has already advanced to the Final Four for a second straight year.
