The Board also reduced the classifications in the following sports to six classes plus rural (rural is not affected): baseball, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, softball and girls volleyball.</p> <p style="margin-top:0px; margin-right:0px; margin-left:0px; padding:0px">District tournaments will remain and be seeded by MaxPreps rankings released at the end of the regular season.

Fall sports will be released after the completion of the fall sports season.</p> <p><strong>Does this new system encourage member schools to run up the score?</strong><br /> According to the MaxPreps representative who spoke at the FHSAA Board of Directors meeting Monday, there is no incentive to run up the score when it comes to MaxPreps rankings.</p> <p><strong>Could a district champion have to travel to a higher-seeded district runner-up?</strong><br /> No. The district champions automatically qualify for playoff seeds 1-4. After the district champions are seeded 1-4 via MaxPreps rankings, four at-large teams then qualify for seeds 5-8 via their MaxPreps rankings. The higher seed always hosts.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Is it true teams do not have to play regular-season district games to qualify for their district tournament?</strong><br /> Regular season district games are not required in order to participate in the district tournament.</p> <p><strong>Can I petition to move up or down a class?</strong><br /> Schools can petition for geographic isolation reasons per Policy 12.</p> <p><strong>Will all teams be required to report their scores on MaxPreps?</strong><br /> Yes. Scores are required to be inputted in MaxPreps. For football this fall, 99 percent of games have been inputted. For volleyball this fall, 97 percent of games have been inputted. Member schools who do not input their scores will be subject to sanctions.</p> <p><strong>Will schools be required to enter stats into MaxPreps with this new system?</strong><br /> No. Only schools advancing to the Florida High School State Championships will be required to have updated stats on MaxPreps.</p> <h5><strong><em>About the FHSAA</em></strong></h5> <p style="margin:0px 0px 7.5pt; padding:0px"><em>The Florida High School Athletic Association supervises and regulates interscholastic athletic programs for high school students at member public, private and charter schools.

Lay Sunshine Cup All-Sports Awards Winners Announced https://www.fhsaa.org/news/2018/0619 <p><strong>GAINESVILLE, Fla. &ndash;&nbsp;</strong>As another year of impressive competition comes to a close, the results have been determined for the 2017-2018 FHSAA Floyd E. Lay Sunshine Cup All-Sports Awards.</p> <p>Jupiter High School took first place in Class 9A (116.5). State titles in cheerleading, baseball and boys lacrosse contributed to this win.</p> <p>Class 8A and Class 7A resulted in clean sweeps from St. Thomas Aquinas (183.5) and Doral Academy (136.8), respectively. The South Florida schools dominated all three categories of the award: overall, girls and boys.</p> <p>Class 6A was won by American Heritage Plantation (211.5) for their seventh year in a row. They won state titles in multiple sports, contributing to a clean sweep in Class 6A, winning every category of the award.</p> <p>The Bolles School of Jacksonville swept the competition for the Class 5A Private overall title (198.3) as well as the boys and girls overall titles. They made appearances at the state series for swimming, cross-country and soccer. The Class 5A Public title was claimed by Coral Springs Charter (79.3), the state champions of small division non-tumbling cheerleading and softball.</p> <p>In the Class 4A/3A Private category, The Benjamin School reigned supreme with a score of 99, edging out Providence School of Jacksonville by just a few points.</p> <p>P.K. Yonge of Gainesville was the leading scorer for all three categories of the award (overall, boys and girls), dominating Class 4A/3A/2A Public (53.0).</p> <p>Miami Christian takes the title for Class 2A Private schools (49.8) for their second year in a row. The boys basketball and baseball teams secured state championships for their school.</p> <p>Blountstown High School outscored Madison County to bring home the win in Class 1A (72.5).</p> <p><em>For the 2017-18 school year, the 705 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 2017-18 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>
