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 2018-19 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 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

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

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 2018-19 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.

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. 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; 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;

The committee&rsquo;s recommendations were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.</p> <p>Articles 3 through 6 of Rule 4-3 were condensed into a new Article 3, which clarifies the faceoff procedures and roles for officials and players. When directed, players will go to the faceoff position with their crosses properly placed. If the official is satisfied with the position, then the ball will be placed between the crosses for the faceoff. Previously, the ball was placed on the ground first. Players are still required to remain motionless in the correct position after the official says &ldquo;set&rdquo; and until the whistle is blown.</p> <p>Rules 1-6-1 and 1-8 were also revised to address issues with the ball becoming stuck in the crosse, including the back of the crosse after a faceoff. The change to Rule 1-6-1 alters the dimensions of the crosse and will take effect beginning in 2018 to allow for phased implementation.</p> <p>Another change (Rule 4-14-3) defines a new &ldquo;over and back&rdquo; rule, which states that the offensive team may not carry, pass or propel the ball into its defensive half of the field once it has been advanced into the goal area. An infraction will result in a turnover or play-on.</p> <p>&ldquo;We believe lacrosse is moving in the right direction to continue to minimize the risk to our student-athletes and improve the game experience,&rdquo; said Susie Knoblauch, NFHS director of performing arts and sports and liaison to the Boys Lacrosse Rules Committee. &ldquo;Our rules changes support that trend and also create more consistent and fair play for everyone.&rdquo;</p> <p>In addition to the four major changes, the Boys Lacrosse Rules Committee approved five 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.</p> <p>Points of Emphasis developed by the Boys Lacrosse Rules Committee for the 2016 season are as follows:</p> <ol> <li><strong>Contact &ndash; </strong>Penalties for excessive hits to the head and neck, as well as penalties for hits to defenseless players and blindside hits.</li> <li><strong>Helmet Fitting</strong> <strong>&ndash;</strong> Helmets shall meet current NOCSAE standards and be properly fitted for each player.</li> <li><strong>Halftime Warm-up &ndash; </strong>It is recommended that the final three minutes of intermission be used as a team warm-up period.</li> <li><strong>Helmets and Equipment During Pre-Game and Practice Time &ndash; </strong>Coaches should educate players on the need to be properly equipped at all times.</li> <li><strong>Defending the Crease &ndash; </strong>It is recommended that coaches not teach nor encourage field players to block the goal when the goalkeeper has vacated the goal crease area.</li> </ol> <p><em>This press release was written by Brandon Jones, a summer intern in the NFHS Publications and Communications Department and a junior at Indiana University Bloomington. </em></p> <p style="text-align:center"><strong>###</strong></p> <p><strong><u>About the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS)</u></strong></p> <p>The NFHS, based in Indianapolis, Indiana, is the national leadership organization for high school sports and performing arts activities.

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 Final Flag Football, Lacrosse, Tennis reclassification announced for 2015-16 through 2018-19 school years https://www.fhsaa.org/news/2015/0615 <p style="margin-top:0px; margin-right:0px; margin-left:0px; padding:0px"><span>Below are the district assignments for the next classification cycle in flag football, lacrosse and tennis, which will be for&nbsp;</span><strong>four years</strong><span>.</span></p> <p style="margin-top:0px; margin-right:0px; margin-left:0px; padding:0px">&bull;&nbsp;<a href="http://www.fhsaa.org/sports/flag-football/assignments"><span>Final flag football</span><span>&nbsp;classification</span></a></p> <p style="margin-top:0px; margin-right:0px; margin-left:0px; padding:0px">&bull;&nbsp;<a href="http://www.fhsaa.org/sports/lacrosse/assignments-boys"><span>Final boys lacrosse classifi</span><span>cation</span></a></p> <p style="margin-top:0px; margin-right:0px; margin-left:0px; padding:0px"><span>&bull; <a href="http://www.fhsaa.org/sports/lacrosse/assignments-girls">Final girls lacrosse classification</a></span></p> <p style="margin-top:0px; margin-right:0px; margin-left:0px; padding:0px"><span>&bull; <a href="http://www.fhsaa.org/sports/tennis/assignments">Final tennis classification</a></span></p> Flag Football Lacrosse (All) Tennis Athletic Services Membership Mon, 15 Jun 2015 19:30:00 +0000 spolansky 21339 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.

Lay Sunshine Cup all-sports awards https://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>

Currently, the start of soccer preseason contests overlaps with all sports that are held during the Fall season. By voting to move the season two weeks later, it would assist schools by not having preseason classics around the same time as girls volleyball district tournaments and cross country district meets. However, the Board elected not to vote on the matter deciding that more information was needed before moving the date, given that the Spring season is the most congested and the proposal could cause overlap into Spring sports.&nbsp;</p> <p>The Board of Directors approved a motion to reinstate Agape Christian Academy back into full membership status, but with certain provisions that must be met to continue as a member of the Association. Failure to meet any of the provisions pertaining to communication and payments and renewals in a timely manner would result in termination of Agape Christian Academy&#39;s membership.</p> <p>In other news the Board of Directors:</p> <p>&middot;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Ratified the FADSS appointment of Mr. Jim Norton for the Section One Appeals Committee&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Lacrosse - Girls Football Governance Mon, 26 Jan 2015 22:27:07 +0000 csobers 19359 at https://www.fhsaa.org Seven companies with girls lacrosse soft headgear products approved by FHSAA https://www.fhsaa.org/news/2015/0115 <p>The FHSAA has identified seven companies with products that meet specifications for the introduction of soft headgear into girls lacrosse at member schools.
