Lay Sunshine Cup All-Sports Awards has come to a close.</p> <p>South Florida dominated the overall standings in the larger classes, with Vero Beach winning Class 9A (123.5), St. Thomas Aquinas capturing the 8A title (230.5), Fort Myers being crowned the 7A champs (119.8) and American Heritage Plantation bringing home the 6A crown (159.8).</p> <p>North Florida swept nearly all overall standings in the smaller classes, with Bolles Jacksonville capturing the 5A Private title (218.8) and South Walton (58.5) edging out Madison County (56.5) in the 1A category.</p> <p>Tallahassee alone contributed to North Florida&#39;s dominance, with Florida High winning Class 5A Public (68.3), &nbsp;FAMU Tallahassee being crowned the 4A/3A/2A Public champs and Maclay bringing home the 4A/3A Private crown.</p> <p>Miami Christian (45.0) won the 2A Private crown over Aucilla Christian (Monticello) thanks to its state championship in boys basketball.</p> <p><em>For the 2016-17 school year, the 707 member senior high schools have been divided into nine classifications for administrative purposes based on the enrollments submitted to the FHSAA Office in October 2014, which were used to discern the classifications as they are drawn up now (as per basketball). </em></p> <p><em>In accordance with a Board mandate at its November 2002 meeting and a restructuring prior to the 2011-12 school year with the addition of the rural classification, Classes 2A-5A are further subdivided into public and private categories. Due to a lack of eligible schools for this year, classes 2A-4A Public and classes 3A &amp; 4A private schools were each combined into one category. An All Sports award will be presented for each of these 10 categories in overall, girls and boys divisions at the conclusion of the 2016-17 school year.</em></p> <p><em>Points are awarded to a school based on its finish in FHSAA State Series competition in each sport in the classification in which it has been assigned to compete. The top 16 places are scored. In all sports with team scores, points are awarded as follows: 20 for the state champion, 12 for the state runner-up, 9 for the state semifinalists, 6 for 5-8th places, and 3 for 9-16th places.&nbsp;In sports where 16 or less schools qualify for the state tournament bracket, points will only be awarded to the 1st through 8th place finishers using the same scoring system.&nbsp;</em></p> <p><em>Schools get a 2-point bonus for winning a district or regional championship, and points are deducted for unsporting conduct: 0.25 points for Level 1 student-athlete ejection/unsporting conduct incident; 0.5 for Level 2 student-athlete ejection/unsporting conduct incident; 1.0 for Level 3 student-athlete ejection/unsporting conduct incident; 2.5 for Level 4 student-athlete ejection/unsporting conduct incident; 1.0 for Level 1 coach ejection/unsporting conduct incident, plus addition 0.5 points deducted for each $50 amount above initial fine; 1.5 for Level 2 coach ejection/unsporting conduct incident, plus addition 0.5 points deducted for each $50 amount above initial fine; 2.0 for Level 3 coach ejection/unsporting conduct incident, plus addition 0.5 points deducted for each $50 amount above initial fine; and approximately 3.0-5.0 additional points deducted for a school or team-based violation (e.g., bench-clearing brawl, coach takes team off the field, etc.). </em></p> <p><em>In the event of a tie for the award in either the overall, girls or boys divisions at the end of the school year, the following tiebreakers will be used: (1) number of state team championships won; (2) number of state team runners-up finishes; (3) number of regional team championships won; (4) number of regional team runners-up finishes; (5) number of district team championships won; and (6) number of district team runners-up finishes.</em></p> <p><strong>The completed standings break-down as follows:</strong></p> <h4><strong>OVERALL: </strong></h4> <p><strong>(<a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/201617overall.pdf">Full Standings</a>)<br /> <br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_9a_1_.pdf">9A</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_8a1.pdf">8A</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_7a.pdf">7A</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_6a1.pdf">6A</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_5a_private.pdf">5A Private</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_5a_public-1.pdf">5A Public</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_4a-3a_private.pdf">4A/3A Private</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_4a-3a-2a_public1.pdf">4A/3A/2A Public</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_2a_private_0.pdf">2A Private</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_1a.pdf">1A&nbsp;</a></strong></p> <h4><strong><span>GIRLS </span></strong></h4> <p><strong><span>(</span><a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/201617overallgirls.pdf">Full Standings</a><span>)</span></strong></p> <p><strong><a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_9a_girls_.pdf">9A&nbsp;</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_8a_girls_.pdf">8A&nbsp;</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_7a_girls.pdf">7A&nbsp;</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_6a_girls_.pdf">6A&nbsp;</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_5a_private_girls_0.pdf">5A Private</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_5a_public_girls_.pdf">5A Public&nbsp;</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_4a-3a_private_girls_.pdf">4A/3A Private&nbsp;</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_4a-3a-2a_public_girls_.pdf">4A/3A/2A Public&nbsp;</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_2a_private_girls_.pdf">2A Private&nbsp;</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_1a_girls_.pdf">1A&nbsp;</a></strong></p> <h4><strong><span>BOYS&nbsp;</span></strong></h4> <p><strong>(<a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/201617overallboys.pdf">Full Standings</a>)</strong></p> <p><strong><a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_9a_boys_.pdf">9A&nbsp;</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_8a_boys_.pdf">8A&nbsp;</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_7a_boys_.pdf">7A&nbsp;</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_6a_boys_.pdf">6A&nbsp;</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_5a_private_boys_.pdf">5A Private</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_5a_public_boys_.pdf">5A Public&nbsp;</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_4a-3a_private_boys_.pdf">4A/3A Private&nbsp;</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_4a-3a-2a_public_boys_.pdf">4A/3A/2A Public&nbsp;</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_2a_private_boys_1.pdf">2A Private&nbsp;</a><br /> <a href="/sites/default/files/orig_uploads/special_programs/allsports/2016-17/class_1a_boys_.pdf">1A&nbsp;</a></strong></p> <p><br /> <strong>

Rozelle Sportsmanship Awards http://www.fhsaa.org/news/2017/0612 <p><strong>GAINESVILLE, Fla</strong>.&nbsp;<strong>(6/12/17)</strong>&nbsp;&ndash; The Florida High School Athletic Association announced Monday the recipients of this year&rsquo;s Fred E. Rozelle Sportsmanship Awards. The FHSAA promotes sportsmanship both on and off the field and wants to recognize the schools that portray these ideals. The award is given to schools whose athletic teams demonstrated exemplary sportsmanship during the 2016-2017 regular season as well as FHSAA State Series competition. This year, fifteen high schools and two middle schools received the prestigious award.</p> <p>The format of how the award is given was changed for the 2016-2017 school year. Instead of section and overall winners, like in previous years, the FHSAA elected to name a first place and runner up winner for each classification. For the third straight year Episcopal (Jacksonville) has placed after winning two straight in 4A, and runner up this year in 5A. Weston Christion, after winning their section the past three years, placed runner up in the middle school category.</p> <p>&ldquo;Good sportsmanship gives student-athletes, coaches, fans, and family members the opportunity to enjoy a more wholesome environment in which all can share a better experience,&quot; FHSAA Executive Director Dr. Roger Dearing said. &quot;We strive to instill this principal into all of our athletes in the state of Florida. These habits can be used well-beyond the confines of a stadium or ballpark. We are happy to recognize these schools and their student-athletes who exemplify not only sportsmanship, but teamwork and citizenship as well.&quot;&nbsp;</p> <p>The award, presented annually since 1991, is named in honor of FHSAA Commissioner Emeritus Fred E. Rozelle. The overall classification recipient is presented to one school in each classification whose total sports program best exemplifies the qualities of sportsmanship as demonstrated by its coaches, players and spectators. Awards are also given to a runner up within each classification. Criteria for selection of the winners includes programs and activities implemented within the school and community to promote sportsmanship; the number and type of technical fouls received; the number and type of exceptional sportsmanship reports; and the source of the nomination.</p> <p>Classification runner-ups will each receive $500 and a commemorative plaque. Each classification winner will receive $2,500 and a plaque.&nbsp;</p> <p>The schools receiving the FHSAA/Fred E.

Due to a lack of eligible schools for this year, class 2A and 3A Public schools were combined into one category. An All Sports award will be presented for each of these 10 categories in overall, girls and boys divisions at the conclusion of the 2015-16 school year.</em></p> <p><em>Points are awarded to a school based on its finish in FHSAA State Series competition in each sport in the classification in which it has been assigned to compete. The top 16 places are scored. In all sports with team scores, points are awarded as follows: 20 for the state champion, 12 for the state runner-up, 9 for the state semifinalists, 6 for 5-8th places, and 3 for 9-16th places. </em></p> <p><em>Schools get a 2-point bonus for winning a district or regional championship, and points are deducted for unsporting conduct: 0.25 points for Level 1 student-athlete ejection/unsporting conduct incident; 0.5 for Level 2 student-athlete ejection/unsporting conduct incident; 1.0 for Level 3 student-athlete ejection/unsporting conduct incident; 2.5 for Level 4 student-athlete ejection/unsporting conduct incident;

Those changes were subsequently approved by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Board of Directors. </span><br /> <br /> <strong><span><u>BASEBALL</u></span></strong><br /> <br /> <span>Beginning with the 2016 season, umpires will be required to issue a warning to coaches before restriction to the bench/dugout or ejecting them as part of a new penalty progression to promote preventive officiating. &nbsp;</span><br /> <br /> <span>The revision to Rule 3-3-1 Penalty was one of two changes recommended by the NFHS Baseball Rules Committee at its June 7-9 meeting. </span><br /> <br /> <span>Previously, issuing a warning to an offending coach was optional for umpires, who will now restrict to the bench/dugout or eject coaches who commit a violation after previously being warned for a minor offense. However, coaches can still be ejected on a first offense if it is deemed to be major. </span><br /> <br /> <span>Also part of the modification to Rule 3-3-1 Penalty, coaches who receive a written warning (Rule 10-2-3) will be restricted to the bench and/or dugout for the remainder of the game. </span><br /> <br /> <span>&ldquo;The new rule change has initiated a penalty progression, starting with a written warning, restriction to the bench/dugout and subsequent ejection from the contest,&rdquo; said Elliot Hopkins, NFHS director of sports and student services and liaison to the Baseball Rules Committee.</span><br /> <br /> <span>The changes to Rule 3-3-1 Penalty will help to de-escalate contentious situations and allow coaches to dictate their status in the game by their behavior, Hopkins said.</span><br /> <br /> <span>&ldquo;A successful game official practices preventive officiating, and this new penalty progression will allow the official to issue penalties that give the coach the opportunity to remain in the game and teach his players.&rdquo; </span><br /> <br /> <span>The other change approved by the Baseball Rules Committee is an addition to Rule 3-3-1. Article &ldquo;q&rdquo; will state that a coach, player, substitute, attendant or other bench personnel shall not &ldquo;have any physical contact, spitting, kicking of dirt or any other physical action directed toward an umpire.&rdquo; The addition of article &ldquo;q&rdquo; serves to clarify other behaviors that would result in an ejection from the game, Hopkins said.</span><br /> <br /> <span>&ldquo;Bad behavior that is being imitated from other levels has no place in education-based athletics and will not be tolerated,&rdquo; Hopkins said. &ldquo;If we are to continue to use sport to teach life lessons, then we have to ensure that appropriate behavior and conduct are modeled from those adults in the role of coach/teacher.&rdquo;</span><br /> <br /> <span>In addition to the two rules changes, the Baseball Rules Committee approved three Points of Emphasis for the 2016 season. Points of emphasis are developed by NFHS rules committees and should receive special focus and attention by officials, coaches, players, fans and other leaders within the high school setting.</span><br /> <br /> <span>Points of Emphasis developed by the Baseball Rules Committee for the 2016 season are as follows:</span></p> <ol> <li><strong><span>INTERMEDIATE PENALTIES/RESTRICTION TO THE BENCH/DUGOUT </span></strong></li> <li><strong><span>PROPER CATCHER&rsquo;S EQUIPMENT </span></strong></li> <li><strong><span>SPORTSMANSHIP &ndash; CELEBRATIONS AROUND OR NEAR THE PLATE AND POST-GAME EJECTIONS</span></strong></li> </ol> <p><br /> <strong><span><u>SOFTBALL</u></span></strong><br /> <br /> <span>In softball, one rule change was recommended by the NFHS Softball Rules Committee at its June 15-17 meeting. In the new Article 4 of Rule 2-57, the committee provided a standard definition of a &ldquo;projected&rdquo; substitute. </span><br /> <br /> <span>Rule 3-3-3 prohibits the use of a projected substitute, which is now defined in the new article as &ldquo;a player who does not immediately participate in the game.&rdquo; </span><br /> <br /> <span>&ldquo;There has been some confusion among both officials and coaches about substitution procedure,&rdquo; said Theresia Wynns, NFHS director of sports and officials education and liaison to the Softball Rules Committee. &ldquo;Therefore, the committee felt it was necessary to clear up that process and provide coaches and officials with a standard definition of a projected substitute.&rdquo;</span><br /> <br /> <span>The following Points of Emphasis were approved by the Softball Rules Committee:</span></p> <ol> <li><strong><span>STRIKE ZONE (FP) </span></strong></li> <li><strong><span>DP/FLEX EDUCATION </span></strong></li> <li><strong><span>PITCHING (FP)</span></strong></li> </ol> <p><span>According to the NFHS Athletics Participation Survey, baseball is the fourth-most popular sport for boys at the high school level with 482,629 participants in 15,789 schools.

It has provided free heart screenings to over 10,000 students. Of those tested,<strong> </strong>approximately 100 students have discovered potentially fatal heart conditions. It was behind the passage of<strong> </strong>the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Act in Pennsylvania, the first law in the country to protect student-athletes from sudden cardiac arrest. With the help of Simon&rsquo;s Fund, this law has been passed in five other<strong> </strong>states as well. The organization recently launched HeartBytes, the first-of-its-kind youth cardiac registry for<strong> </strong>seemingly healthy kids in an effort to promote research.

Lay Sunshine Cup all-sports awards http://www.fhsaa.org/news/2015/0528 <p>GAINESVILLE &ndash; St. Thomas Aquinas (Fort Lauderdale - 7A), American Heritage (Plantation - 5A) and Bolles (Jacksonville - 4A Private) swept the top overall, boys and girls awards in their respective classifications in the final 2014-15 FHSAA Floyd E. Lay Sunshine Cup All-Sports Awards point standings. First-time winners Cypress Bay (Weston - 8A), Creekside (St. Johns - 6A) and Cedar Key (1A) are joined by P.K. Yonge (Gainesvile - 4A Public), Maclay (Tallahassee - 3A Private), FAMU (Tallahassee - 3A/2A Public) and Sarasota Christian (2A Private) as classification champions.</p> <p>For just the second time in the history of the award, the 8A title resides outside the Central Florida counties of Orange and Seminole. Last year&#39;s 8A All Sports runner-up, Weston&#39;s Cypress Bay, with 140 points and three state championships, beat out Winter Park and its 116 points. St. Thomas Aquinas totaled 225.75 points to earn the win in Class 7A over Chiles (Tallahassee), which finished with 153 points. Last year&#39;s top two teams switched positions in 6A. This time it was Creekside with 128 points beating Barron Collier&#39;s (Naples) 111 points. American Heritage, with 185.75 points, has the highest score of any 5A school in 2014-15, easily defeating Merritt Island by 80.75 points. This is American Heritage&#39;s fourth straight scoring title. Bolles, with 189.75 points, took home victory among the Class 4A private schools, finishing 26 points better than second-place Lake Highland Prep (Orlando).</p> <p>P.K. Yonge is back on top of the 4A public school category with 56.5 points, edging second place Coral Springs Charter by just six points. P.K. Yonge was not on top of either gender, though, as Godby (Tallahassee) won the boys division and Coral Springs Charter won the girls division for the first time. After a one-year hiatus from the top of the standings, Maclay is the winner among Class 3A private schools with 103.25 points, as Holy Trinity (Melbourne) finished a close second with 92.25 points. Maclay&#39;s girls program was edged by Lakeland Christian, 55-51. FAMU, with 45 points, won its sixth All Sports trophy in the combined 3A/2A public school category, beating SLAM Academy (Miami), which had 13.25 points. All of SLAM&#39;s points came in the boys category, securing its first-ever win there. North Bay Haven (Panama City) finished second, while FAMU came in third amongst the boys. In Class 2A private schools, Sarasota Christian, with 49 points, won its second straight All Sports title by again defeating Grandview Prep (Boca Raton) by nine points. And Cedar Key also took home its first-ever All Sports trophy in Class 1A with 48 points, besting second place Sneads and its champion girls program by just a single point.</p> <p>For the 2014-15 school year, the 690 member senior high schools have been divided into eight classifications for administrative purposes based on the enrollments submitted to the FHSAA Office in October 2012, which were used to discern the classifications as they are drawn up now. In accordance with a Board mandate at its November 2002 meeting and a restructuring prior to the 2011-12 school year with the addition of the rural classification, Classes 2A, 3A and 4A are further subdivided into public and private categories. An All Sports award will be presented in each of these 10 categories in overall, girls and boys divisions at the conclusion of the 2014-15 school year.<br /> <br /> Points are awarded to a school based on its finish in FHSAA State Series competition in each sport in the classification in which it has been assigned to compete. The top 16 places are scored. In all sports with team scores, points are awarded as follows: 20 for the state champion, 12 for the state runner-up, 9 for the state semifinalists, 6 for 5-8th places, and 3 for 9-16th places. Schools get a 2-point bonus for winning a district or regional championship, and points are deducted for unsporting conduct: 0.25 points for Level 1 student-athlete ejection/unsporting conduct incident; 0.5 for Level 2 student-athlete ejection/unsporting conduct incident; 1.0 for Level 3 student-athlete ejection/unsporting conduct incident; 2.5 for Level 4 student-athlete ejection/unsporting conduct incident; 1.0 for Level 1 coach ejection/unsporting conduct incident, plus addition 0.5 points deducted for each $50 amount above initial fine; 1.5 for Level 2 coach ejection/unsporting conduct incident, plus addition 0.5 points deducted for each $50 amount above initial fine; 2.0 for Level 3 coach ejection/unsporting conduct incident, plus addition 0.5 points deducted for each $50 amount above initial fine; and approximately 1.5-3.0 additional points deducted for a school or team-based violation (e.g., bench-clearing brawl, coach takes team off the field, etc.).&nbsp;In the event of a tie for the award in either the overall, girls or boys divisions at the end of the school year, the following tiebreakers will be used: (1) number of state team championships won; (2) number of state team runners-up finishes; (3) number of regional team championships won; (4) number of regional team runners-up finishes; (5) number of district team championships won; and (6) number of district team runners-up finishes.<br /> <br /> Here are the top 10 teams in the overall standings, as well as girls program and boys program standings:</p>

This one-year increase was the highest since 2009-10.</p> <p>Girls participation increased for the 25th consecutive year with an additional 44,941 participants from 2012-13 and set an all-time record of 3,267,664. Boys participation eclipsed 4.5 million for the first time (4,527,994), breaking the mark of 4,494,406 in 2010-11.</p> <p>The increase in boys participation was due in part to the first increase in football numbers in five years. An additional 6,607 boys participated in 11-player football in 2013-14, pushing this past year&rsquo;s total to 1,093,234. In addition, another 1,715 girls participated in 11-player football last year, an increase of 184 from the previous year.</p> <p>&ldquo;We are pleased with the increase in participation numbers in the sport of football for the 2013-14 school year,&rdquo; said Bob Gardner, NFHS executive director. &ldquo;With the precautions that are in place nationwide to address concussions in all high school sports, including football, we have maintained that the risk of injury is as low as it ever has been. Certainly, this rise in football numbers is a confirmation of those beliefs and indicates the strong continued interest nationwide in high school football.&rdquo;</p> <p>Among the top 10 boys sports, baseball registered the largest gain with an additional 7,838 participants, followed by football and soccer (6,437). The top 10 boys sports remained unchanged from last year: football, outdoor track and field, basketball, baseball, soccer, wrestling, cross country, tennis, golf, and swimming and diving.</p> <p>Volleyball gained the most participants among girls sports (9,426) from the previous year, and its total of 429,634 was within 3,710 of basketball for the No. 2 position. Track and field, with an additional 5,946 participants from 2012-13, remained the No. 1 sport for girls, followed by basketball, volleyball, soccer, fast-pitch softball, cross country, tennis, swimming and diving, competitive spirit squads and lacrosse.</p> <p>&ldquo;This past year&rsquo;s report on sports participation in our nation&rsquo;s high schools was another great statement about the importance of these education-based programs,&rdquo; Gardner said. &ldquo;We are encouraged that schools are continuing to respond to the funding challenges, and are particularly pleased to see that the increase this past year was evenly distributed between boys and girls.&rdquo;</p> <p>In terms of combined participation, lacrosse continued to register sizeable increases as overall participation for boys and girls increased by 9,744 to 188,689. The sport ranks 10th for girls and 11th for boys.</p> <p>The top 10 states by participants remained in the same order as last year, with Texas and California topping the list with 805,299 and 783,008, respectively. The remainder of the top 10 was New York (389,475), Illinois (343,757), Ohio (325,448), Pennsylvania (317,318), Michigan (299,246), New Jersey (285,020), Florida (268,266) and Minnesota (232,909).

Lay Sunshine Cup all-sports awards http://www.fhsaa.org/news/2014/0603 <p>GAINESVILLE &ndash; Winter Park (8A) and St. Thomas Aquinas (Fort Lauderdale - 7A) swept the top overall, boys and girls awards in their respective classifications in the final 2013-14 FHSAA Floyd E. Lay Sunshine Cup All-Sports Awards point standings. Barron Collier (Naples - 6A), American Heritage (Plantation - 5A), Bolles (Jacksonville - 4A Private), West Florida (Pensacola - 4A Public), Holy Trinity (Melbourne - 3A Private), FAMU (Tallahassee - 3A/2A Public), Sarasota Christian (2A Private), and Trenton (1A) also won the overall awards in their respective classifications.</p> <p>In additon, there was a tie among the top two boys programs in Class 8A between Winter Park and South Dade (Homestead). But thanks to its runner-up finish in the FHSAA Class 4A Girls Cross Country Finals, Winter Park took the boys title in the second tiebreaker procedure (listed below).<br /> <br /> Winter Park, with 168 points, relclaimed the title after having previously taken home first place in the 2011-12 school year. It was the top school in 8A this year with a 35-point margin over the second place finisher Cypress Bay (Weston). St. Thomas Aquinas totalled 251.5 points to earn the win in Class 7A over Oviedo, which finished with 135 points. Barron Collier, having won the award for the first time since the 2010-11 school year, topped Class 6A with 97 points, beating Creekside (St. Johns), which finished with 87 points. Barron Collier was not on top of either gender, though, as Belen Jesuit (Miami) won the boys division and Creekside won the girls division. American Heritage, with 170.25 points, has the highest score of any 5A school in 2013-14, defeating Ponte Vedra by 46.5 points. American Heritage&#39;s total was boosted by having the highest scoring girls program in 5A. Bolles, with 191.5 points, took home victory among the Class 4A private schools, finishing 27.75 points better than second-place Gulliver Prep (Pinecrest) and 34.5 points better than Lake Highland Prep (Orlando). Bolles also had the highest girls total in 4A private, edging Ransom Everglades (Miami) 118-110.</p> <p>West Florida&#39;s improbable victory in its softball state championship game propelled the Jaguars to the top of the 4A public school category as a first-time champion, as well as the school making its first-ever top-10 appearance since the inception of the award in the 2002-03 school year. West Florida scored 71 points to best Florida High (Tallahassee) at 59.5 points, P.K. Yonge (Gainesville) at 57.25 points, and Washington (Miami) at 52 points. P.K. Yonge had the best-scoring girls program and Washington was first in the boys. Holy Trinity is a first-time winner among Class 3A private schools with 112 points, as First Academy (Orlando) finished a close second with 95 points. Holy Trinity&#39;s girls program was edged by Westminster Christian&#39;s (Miami) program, 57.75-57. FAMU, with 30.75 points, won its fifth All Sports trophy in the combined 3A/2A public school category, beating Moore Haven, which had 15.75 points. Moore Haven shocked FAMU in the girls category by one point, 16-15, after finishing as state runner-up at the Class 3A softball finals. In Class 2A private schools, Sarasota Christian, with 57 points, won its first All Sports title by defeating Grandview Prep (Boca Raton) by just four points. And Trenton also took home its first-ever All Sports trophy in Class 1A with 53.5 points, besting second place Chiefland, which had 48 points.<br /> <br /> For the 2013-14 school year, the 684 member senior high schools have been divided into eight classifications for administrative purposes based on the enrollments submitted to the FHSAA Office in October 2012, which were used to discern the classifications as they are drawn up now. In accordance with a Board mandate at its November 2002 meeting and a restructuring prior to the 2011-12 school year with the addition of the rural classification, Classes 2A, 3A and 4A are further subdivided into public and private categories. An All Sports award will be presented in each of these 10 categories in overall, girls and boys divisions at the conclusion of the 2013-14 school year.<br /> <br /> Points are awarded to a school based on its finish in FHSAA State Series competition in each sport in the classification in which it has been assigned to compete. The top 16 places are scored. In all sports with team scores, points are awarded as follows: 20 for the state champion, 12 for the state runner-up, 9 for the state semifinalists, 6 for 5-8th places, and 3 for 9-16th places. Schools get a 2-point bonus for winning a district or regional championship, and points are deducted for unsporting conduct: 0.25 points for Level 1 student-athlete ejection/unsporting conduct incident; 0.5 for Level 2 student-athlete ejection/unsporting conduct incident; 1.0 for Level 3 student-athlete ejection/unsporting conduct incident; 2.5 for Level 4 student-athlete ejection/unsporting conduct incident; 1.0 for Level 1 coach ejection/unsporting conduct incident, plus addition 0.5 points deducted for each $50 amount above initial fine; 1.5 for Level 2 coach ejection/unsporting conduct incident, plus addition 0.5 points deducted for each $50 amount above initial fine; 2.0 for Level 3 coach ejection/unsporting conduct incident, plus addition 0.5 points deducted for each $50 amount above initial fine; and approximately 1.5-3.0 additional points deducted for a school or team-based violation (e.g., bench-clearing brawl, coach takes team off the field, etc.).&nbsp;In the event of a tie for the award in either the overall, girls or boys divisions at the end of the school year, the following tiebreakers will be used: (1) number of state team championships won; (2) number of state team runners-up finishes; (3) number of regional team championships won; (4) number of regional team runners-up finishes; (5) number of district team championships won; and (6) number of district team runners-up finishes.<br /> <br /> Here are the top 10 teams in the overall standings, as well as girls program and boys program standings:</p>
