With Friday's 2-1 victory over Lake Gibson, Jesuit advanced to the final four for the seventh consecutive season. Other milestones achieved or approached along the way:

John Kluft surpassed the 100-point mark.

Scott Golden's six goals on six shots in a win over Blake set school records for shooting percentage and goals in a game.

A streak of nine consecutive shutouts ended against Lake Gibson.

The 16 goals allowed this season is a school record. The previous mark was 19.

Jesuit needs two shutouts to finish with 20, one shy of the school record set last season.

Jesuit snapped Bellarmine Prep's 58-game winning streak with a 3-1 win at the Puma Tournament. Later that day, the Tigers broke Lake Mary's 15-game streak by an identical score.
