Breaking: New FHSAA Classes and District Assignments Substantially Change Lacrosse Landscape

 

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
Kings Academy 544 1A 4 13
Oxbridge Academy 513 1A 4 13
Cardinal Newman 478 1A 4 13
St. John Paul II (Boca Raton) 405 1A 4 13

FOUR schools ranked in My Final Top 25 plus ‘also considereds’

versus

Class 1A – District 10

Robinson 1565 1A 3 10
Jefferson 1782 1A 3 10
Tampa Prep 484 1A 3 10
St. Petersburg Catholic 320 1A 3 10
Northside Christian 265 1A 3 10
St. Stephens 275 1A 3 10

The HIGHEST ranked of these in MaxPreps is St. Stephen’s at #89 . . .

 

And look at the Orlando area in Class 2A:

District 4

Seminole (Sanford) 3766 2A 1 4
Lake Mary 2922 2A 1 4
Lake Brantley 2692 2A 1 4

Hagerty 2417 2A 1 4
Lyman 2340 2A 1 4
Winter Springs 2031 2A 1 4

District 5

Apopka 3377 2A 2 5
Ocoee 2539 2A 2 5

District 6

District 7

Windermere 3373 2A 2 7
Olympia 3277 2A 2 7
Celebration 2675 2A 2 7
East Ridge 2513 2A 2 7

Is it possible that the FOUR BEST TEAMS next year in these districts are ALL in one district?

 

Here’s a prediction to the FHSAA . . . if you wonder why your attendance takes a hit at next year’s Final Four . . . LOOK IN THE MIRROR.

 

More analysis to come.
