Floyd E. Lay Sunshine Cup All-Sports Awards Winners Announced

As the 2019-2020 school year comes to a unique close, so does another exceptional year of FHSAA competition. The level of talent seen during the Fall and Winter seasons made the race for the 2019-20 FHSAA Floyd E. Lay Sunshine Cup All-Sports Awards a tight one, but the results are in.  Congratulations to Oviedo (7A), Ponte Vedra (6A), Jesuit (5A), Lake Highland Prep (4A), Maclay (3A), Champagnat (2A) and Hawthorne (1A) for being overall classifications winners!

 

For the 2019-20 school year, the 697 member senior high schools have been divided into seven classifications for administrative purposes based on the Fall 2019 member school enrollment report.  This is in accordance with a Board mandate from its September 2019 meeting to always mirror the current year’s classification structure. 

 

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. 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. 

 

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.).

 

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.
