Okay, as those who read District 15's preview know there's a bit of an issue on MaxPreps.com on the data so we'll skip the 2018 final regular season standings on this. The FHSAA has placed the following teams in this District for this year: Jesuit of Tampa, HB Plant, Alonso, Berkeley Prep, Jefferson, Robinson, Tampa Catholic and Tampa Prep Oh, and to apologize for my LaxRecords.com podcast goof . . . HALAX, not HALAL . . . not too kosher on that one . . . Jesuit and Plant both had marvelous years last year as indicated in their final rankings of #8 and #11, and both were earned on the field. Jesuit avenged the regular season loss to Plant in the district final after they eliminated Tampa Catholic and and Plant took down Berkeley Prep. Jesuit then advanced to the Elite Eight of the FH
District 15 unfortunately loses one of the more interesting competitive stories in the state as Kuebrich and Kuebrich has broken apart as the Steinbrenner brother has moved on . . . too good a story to last! Sickles won this district last year and was a surprise team last year, finishing at #17 in the FLN Final Poll. They gave Elite Eight participant Jesuit of Tampa a run in the 1st round of the brackets. Steinbrenner also started very strong but faded a little later in the season, having appeared in the Top 25 early in the season and receiving consideration for the final poll. Wiregrass Ranch had a very good first varsity year and should challenge in the near future. This district also has been reshuffled by the FHSAA, as the teams competing this year are: Steinbrenner
Now we are getting into the territory of where the sport most grew last year, the area east of Tampa down towards the Fort Myers area. We start with District 14, the long-time provenance of Newsome and last year they continued their streak of district titles and made it to the Round of 16 before bowing to Jesuit of Tampa. Newsome finished at #19 in the Final FLN Poll. We also are getting into the territory of where Tampa Lax Report also covers previews and since I only got one questionnaire returned so far I will also include the link to TLR’s previews. The MaxPreps District 2018 Records seem incomplete and the new FHSAA school listings have this now as Bloomingdale, Durant, Freedom (Tampa - District 16 last year), Newsome and Wharton (District 16 last year) so there’s be
District 13 is kind of an overlooked district since it is geographically between the hot spots of Orlando and Tampa and has not had success in the FHSAA bracket games. Within their area All Saints, Lakeland and Bartow have had success recently in competing for the district title and we’ll see if that continues this season. Lake Wales and Lakeland Christian step up to varsity status in this district and we’ll see how much impact they can bring.

Bishop Moore is clearly the big program in this district, having played their way to the FHSAA title game last year and finishing tied for #2 in the Final Media Poll. This year looks to be potentially the same, albeit having to overcome some key losses to both graduation and a very significant transfer to area rival LHP of FOGO Hudson Bohn. He will not easily be replaced. Last season’s Regular Season records via MaxPreps (Note: possibility not all results were uploaded): School Name *W-L *Pct. W-L Pct.
