  Alex Ozuna oversees the sport of lacrosse for the Florida High School Athletic Association and he was gracious enough to allow me to pose some questions to him to clarify some of the questions I've been hearing from our readers.  Here's his responses:     1) Must a school play all the District teams they are assigned to? All teams must play their district opponents at least once during the regular season.

  I'll analyze the Boys' side first and hopefully there will be readers able to send me some insight on the Girls' side too.   Class 1A is for the smaller schools and Class 2A is for the larger schools, basically the same number of schools in each. 16 districts in each Class, based on what I heard there will be only the winner of the District making the FHSAA brackets. At a quick glance: 8 teams in District 7 in 1A and 4 in District 2, the rest fall in between in size. Multiple districts in the Southeast have 7 teams, no Class 2A district has 4 and most are 6 teams   There are some BRUTAL districts, both good and bad.    Class 1A - District 13 Suncoast 1589 1A 4 13 American Heritage (Delray Beach) 904 1A 4 13 St. Andrews 625 1A 4 13

I chose Mercyhurst Northeast because I am interested Culinary Arts and that is one of the programs they offer. The opportunity to play lacrosse at the next level is also something I was looking for and to be able to find a place where I could have both is a blessing. Whenever I spoke with Coach Tousaw he made me feel like I was already part of the Mercyhurst family and that was also a huge factor.     What are your first memories of the sport? My first memory...
