District Champions

No. 1 Apopka (8A-4)
No. 2 Winter Park (8A-3)
No. 3 Mandarin (8A-1)
No. 4 Oviedo (8A-2)

No. 8 West Orange at No. 1 Apopka
No. 5 Wekiva at No. 4 Oviedo
No. 6 DeLand at No. 3 Mandarin
No. 7 Flagler Palm Coast at No. 2 Winter Park

QUICK THOUGHTS: Both Winter Parka and Oviedo clinched their respective district last week and as such both will be playoff bound. However, a lot remains at stake in District 8A-1 and District 8A-4 where district tiebreakers are all possible depending on results of games this week. Right now, West Orange would be in at the No. 8 seed, but teams like Lake Mary, Boone, and Seminole are all still in the mix depending on what happens in the next two weeks.

No. 8 George Jenkins at No. 1 Vero Beach
No. 5 Centennial at No. 4 Dr. Phillips
No. 6 Treasure Coast at No. 3 Manatee
No. 7 Gateway at No. 2 Osceola

QUICK THOUGHTS: Dr. Phillips joins Vero Beach as the only two teams to have clinched district championships so far in the region, but Osceola and Riverview (Sarasota) can join the list this week with wins. Ridge Community moves back into a possible playoff spot and will need to win out and hope for other teams to fall as teams like Gateway, George Jenkins and Oak Ridge are not far behind them on the list.

PROJECTED SEEDS

District Champions

No. 1 Atlantic (Delray Beach) (8A-10)
No. 2 Deerfield Beach (8A-11)
No. 3 Palm Beach Central (8A-9)
No. 4 Western (8A-12)

Wildcards

PROJECTED REGIONAL QUARTERFINAL PAIRINGS

No. 8 Piper at No. 1 Atlantic
No. 5 Plantation at No. 4 Western
No. 6 Wellington at No. 3 Palm Beach Central
No. 7 Seminole Ridge at No. 2 Deerfield Beach

QUICK THOUGHTS: Atlantic still holds on to the top seed in the region and they also clinched their district championship last week while Palm Beach Central also joined the ranks with a district championship as well. The biggest shifts in this region come in the wildcard section where Park Vista drops out of the top eight with Seminole Ridge boosting themselves back in after a huge win over Pahokee last week. As for Deerfield Beach and Western, both can join the ranks of district champions with wins this week to lock in a top-four spot.

Miami Southridge 6-2 42.13
South Dade 7-1 41.25

No. 4 Belen Jesuit (8A-15)

Wildcards

No. 5 Miami Southridge
No. 6 South Dade
No. 7 Homestead
No. 8 North Miami*

*TIEBREAKER: North Miami would win the tiebreaker over Coral Gables with more CAT 3 wins (1-0).

PROJECTED REGIONAL QUARTERFINAL PAIRINGS                                         

No. 8 North Miami at No. 1 South Dade
No. 5 Miami Southridge at No. 4 Belen Jesuit
No. 6 South Dade at No. 3 Hialeah
No. 7 Homestead at No. 2 Columbus

QUICK THOUGHTS: What a week can do for changes in a region as Miami Palmetto moves to the No. 1 seed after a huge win over South Dade, while South Dade themselves falls all the way to the No. 6 after holding the No. 1 seed up to this point during the season. The only other big change is North Miami would be in over Coral Gables with the tiebreaker helping them. However, Coral Gables is still not out of the hunt, nor is Southwest Miami or Braddock at this point.
