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 https://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.

In addition, we require every student-athlete and every coach to view the 30 minute video, developed by the National Federation of High Schools, on the education, awareness and treatment of sustained concussions prior to any participation in a high school sport.</p> <p style="margin-left:-.75pt">To ensure that our member schools have the latest information, we are in regular communication with equipment manufacturers, industry related associations and other league organizers about advances in product testing, guidelines, and certifications.&nbsp; Additionally, our Sports Medicine Advisory Council, comprised mostly of medical doctors throughout the state, proactively seeks the latest data to share with the FHSAA member school Board of Directors.&nbsp; Earlier this year, we shared the results of the NFL Football Helmet Testing Study with our member schools so that they have the current scientific research, enabling them to make the most informed decisions possible on behalf of their student athletes.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin-left:-.75pt">With the combination of risk minimization efforts including concussion protocols, reducing contact in practices, and continuing education efforts, we believe contact sports, and football in particular, are safe for Florida student athletes.&nbsp; The FHSAA will continue to monitor the situation and provide useful information to our member schools and the student-athletes.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong><em>About the FHSAA </em></strong></p> <p><em>The Florida High School Athletic Association supervises and regulates interscholastic athletic programs for high school students at member public, private and charter 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. In 2014, Phyllis Sudman was named the 2014<strong> </strong>National Woman of Worth by L&rsquo;Oréal Paris, beating out more than 4,300 women who were nominated for this<strong> </strong>honor.<br /> <strong>&nbsp;<br /> MEDIA CONTACTS:</strong><br /> Bruce Howard, 317-972-6900<br /> Director of Publications and Communications<br /> National Federation of State High School Associations<br /> <u><span class="spamspan"><span class="u">bhoward</span> [at] <span class="d">nfhs [dot] org</span></span></u><br /> &nbsp;<br /> Chris Boone, 317-972-6900<br /> Assistant Director of Publications and Communications<br /> National Federation of State High School Associations<br /> <u><span class="spamspan"><span class="u">cboone</span> [at] <span class="d">nfhs [dot] org</span></span></u></span> </p> Baseball Basketball - Boys Lacrosse - Boys Soccer - Boys Track & Field Volleyball - Boys Weightlifting - Boys Basketball (All) Basketball - Girls Lacrosse - Girls Soccer - Girls Track & Field - Adapted Volleyball - Girls Weightlifting - Girls Bowling Competitive Cheerleading Cross Country Flag Football Football Golf Lacrosse (All) Soccer (All) Softball Swimming & Diving Tennis Track & Field (All) Volleyball (All) Water Polo Weightlifting (All) Wrestling Athletic Services Health & Wellness Officials Mon, 22 Jun 2015 11:26:00 +0000 spolansky 21390 at https://www.fhsaa.org 2014-15 sports participation survey information released https://www.fhsaa.org/news/2015/0615-0 <p>The final numbers for the 2014-15 sports participation survey have been released for grades 9-12.

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). Overall, 33 states reported higher figures from the previous year, up from 30 states that had increases the previous year.</p> <p>The participation survey has been compiled since 1971 by the NFHS through numbers it receives from its member associations.

The complete results from the national survey are attached below.</p> <p>Based on figures from the 51 NFHS-member state high school associations, which includes the District of Columbia, sports participation for the 2012-13 school year reached an all-time high of 7,713,577 participants &ndash; an increase of 21,057 from the previous year.</p> <p>An additional 15,190 girls participated in high school sports last year, moving the girls all-time record to 3,222,723 and marking the 24th consecutive year for an increase in the number of female participants. After its first decrease in 20 years last year, boys participation started on the upswing again with an additional 5,867 participants. The boys total of 4,490,854 is second all-time to the 4,494,406 in 2010-11.</p> <p>&ldquo;While we recognize that many schools are experiencing challenges with funding high school sports programs, we are encouraged that schools are responding to the challenges and that more and more students are involved in high school sports,&rdquo; said Bob Gardner, NFHS executive director. &ldquo;Playing sports within the school setting continues to be the desire of more than 55 percent of students enrolled in our nation&rsquo;s high schools.&rdquo;</p> <p>Eight of the top 10 girls sports registered increases in participation in 2012-13, led by competitive spirit squads (8,201), outdoor track and field (4,172), and swimming and diving (3,536). Lacrosse, cross country, volleyball, soccer and tennis also had additional female participants, while basketball and fast-pitch softball had minor declines.</p> <p>Five of the top 10 boys sports showed increases in participation, led by outdoor track and field (5,044), swimming and diving (4,354), and basketball (3,387). Cross country and baseball also registered gains among top 10 sports.</p> <p>Eleven-player football remains the top sport for boys with 1,086,627 participants in 2012-13, although the number of players has decreased slightly each of the past four years, including a drop of 9,366 from 2011-12 to 2012-13.</p> <p>In terms of combined participation, track and field, and swimming and diving registered the best overall gains. Track and field had an increase of more than 9,100 participants when combining girls and boys, while swimming and diving was up almost 8,000 participants.</p> <p>Girls sports outside the top 10 that recorded increases in participants and could be emerging sports for females are bowling (25,450 participants in 2012-13), ice hockey (9,447), wrestling (8,727) and flag football (7,019).</p> <p>A sizeable increase in &ldquo;adapted sports&rdquo; participation also contributed to the rise in 2012-13 figures. With seven states offering these programs for students with disabilities in 14 sports, the number of participants rose almost 3,000 to 8,747 (girls and boys combined).</p> <p>The top 10 states by participants remained in the same order as last year, with Texas and California topping the list with 798,333 and 777,545, respectively. The remainder of the top 10 was New York (389,475), Illinois (339,944), Ohio (327,919), Pennsylvania (315,492), Michigan (304,438), New Jersey (270,423), Florida (243,397) and Minnesota (230,421). Although only one of the top 10 states registered an increase in participation (New Jersey), overall, 30 states reported higher figures from the previous year. &nbsp;</p> <p>The participation survey has been compiled since 1971 by the NFHS through numbers it receives from its member associations.
