  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. The district regular season matches determine the seed for the end of the season district tournament.   2) Outside of district, are there any limits on how many 1A teams a 2A can play? There is no limit on the amount of games a 1A school can play 2A school or vice versa. During the regular season, each team has a season limitation of 18 ga

  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

  thanks to Ted Swoboda for the pictures!   15/12/11. That’s not the European way of saying December 15th, 2011. That’s the stat line of the second half.  The stat line of the ultimate efficiency of a high school lacrosse team. 15 shots . . . 12 shots on goals . . . 11 goals . . . oh, and 3 turnovers just to show there was some human frailty in those 24 minutes.  Well, they lost the faceoff battle too . . . 8-5 at halftime turned into running time in the fourth. To those in attendance, those watching the NFHS broadcast, even those who were from Raider Nation . . . just tip your cap to what happened last night; you won’t likely see this level of lacrosse over 48 minutes, on both sides of the ball, for quite a while.  Even if Inside Lacrosse will not acknowl

pictures by Ted Swoboda   It’s on to Saturday night for the Sharks and the Raiders.  One looked to get there from Day One and glided through their pathway until having to grind it out yesterday while the other was not expected to get here but found a way to win 2 OT games on their path, including yesterday’s solo dash through traffic.  And you saw two very different games yesterday. The prediction from the preview article still holds, and I think you will see a similar game to the PV-Jupiter game as STA can also dominate the faceoffs and that plays into what is called a ‘slugger’s chance’.  But I’m sticking with it.  I picked PV to beat Oxbridge in the Preseason Top 25, picked them in the Final Four preview, and I’m sticking with them to win their first title. Come on out

  Friday afternoon, starting at 4:00pm at Boca Raton High School, sees three repeat attendees in Jupiter, the defending state champs, Ponte Vedra and Bishop Moore, with St. Thomas Aquinas making their return to the event. Plenty of storylines.  A rematch from about 5 weeks ago between Jupiter and Ponte Vedra while Bishop Moore and STA get it on for the first time this season.  Two teams still seeking their first taste of the gold ring and two that have won the last three titles! Let’s get it on! Oh, and don’t forget, we also get the Girls’ Championship game right after the Boys’ Semifinal!  Pretty sweet deal for the ticket price . . .   Ponte Vedra vs. Jupiter at 4:00pm Forget the start time . . . this will be worth playing hookie a little early from work on
