Only ones complaining are ones who didn't get a favorable district

 

Only complaint I see is legitimate is tca being forced into 3A 

 

The reason they moved up was because the Duval schools are scared of Trinity and they wanted to limit travel

They'll be back in the finals tho and I'm sure they can schedule some of the team's they've been playing while in 5A. 4A north is gonna be between Cocoa and Bolles for the most part. But 4A south is gonna be crazy especially with region 4.....region 4 is gonna be a battle. There will be at least 4 teams in the playoffs from region 4 at a minimum.

And they actually split up the 3 headed monster of Miami's 6A district. STA is gonna have their hands full in the semifinals.  I'm actually happy with what they did.

 Looks like the only big programs that got added to Region 3 in 7A are Manatee and Dwyer(who they had to face anyway when in Region 4).  And now STA has Miramar and Atlantic in Region 4, which may add some challenge.  STA still manages to miss all of the better Miami-Dade schools in the playoffs...one day, just maybe

They cannot let people move. Make them stay in the district they are in.

I was told no appeals.  Only one that stood out to me is Haines City and Sarasota Riverview in a district lol... Nice little 120 mile stroll.

FHSAA finally listening to public schools over private for once? That’s a Fred Sanford moment!!! 

 

 

NOW FIX THE FLAWED POINT SYSTEM!!!!

 

I love the reclass myself!!! But I’m sure FHSAA didn’t put much research into the reclass and just moved schools around like a deck of cards.

Can someone explain why is Madison in region 3? Why not put them in 2? I had this question last go round.

When I look at this map, I see Madison fitting better into 3 than 2 in my opinion. Additionally, if you pull Madison out of Region 3 and put them in Region 2, Region 3 only has 8 teams instead of 9, Region 2 goes to 10 team. That is unbalanced when purely regional teams are determining who makes it.

I think the FHSAA did a good job, I will only disagree with one thing on their FAQ

"A: After traveling the state this past year, the consensus the FHSAA heard from its athletic directors and coaches was that they wanted an equal number of teams by classification, an even number of teams in each district and region and no three-team districts. Moving schools would go against that sentiment and would create uneven classifications, regions or districts. The staff has thoroughly reviewed the assignments and do not see any schools that are geographically isolated that would require movement to another classification (FHSAA Policy 12). To maintain the wishes of our constituents, the FHSAA will not be accepting appeals."

I do not think they lived up to the part where are equal number of teams per classification considering 1A-4A have 40ish teams and 5A-8A have 80 teams. Again, the FHSAA would have done better to remove one class and then do equal size classes. Instead of the current 1/3 and 2/3 rule they follow.

Which team is closer to Jefferson? Madison or Taylor? Region 4 has 10 teams... So put the north most region 4 team, Trenton, in region 3, and move Madison to region 2. That moves the 10 team region from 4 to 2 and leaves regions 1, 3, and 4 with 9 teams.
