  Okay, to remind everyone of the methodology: 64 teams, 16 per quadrant The same districts, 1-32, divided by Quadrant as currently configured The District winner gets the automatic bid By quadrant, the next highest ranked teams get invited (I used MaxPreps for this exercise and there are a few at the end I might not agree with but for this exercise it suffices) I would be open to making a few adjustments, so District members don’t play each other in the first round but for now we go by the numbers Within the Quadrants we seed 1-16 to start and would like to see District winners get the first-round home game if they play an at-large team Number next to the team is the MaxPreps ranking at the state level.  Three teams that fell into the top 32 at large are skipped

  Author's Note:  I don't know how I missed this story.  Didn't put two and two together.  There was a tweet or some sort of note from an Immokalee game about a player being airlifted to a hospital but it didn't register to me.  But I saw someone tweet this article out today and I'm kicking myself for not following up. Chase Lalonde was playing for Westminster Academy against Immokalee and was injured severely during the game. But thankfully, the story looks like it is having a happy ending according to an article today in the Sun-Sentinel of Ft. Lauderdale!   Teen Walks Out Of Hospital Weeks After Lacrosse Accident Leaves Him Paralyzed by Austen Erblat, photo by Susan Stocker   Excerpt: When a high school lacrosse player suffered a traumatic spine injury
