The Super-Competitive 5A Region 2 - A Look Ahead

Recommended Posts

Without a doubt, 5A-Region 2 will be a very competitive region, featuring 11 teams that made the playoffs last year!   Records from last season are listed below.  Teams with a double asterisk made the playoffs last season.  Teams that are italicized won a district title. 

6 of the 8 teams from Region 2 that made the playoffs last year are back in Region 2 this year...Nature Coast, Menendez, Eastside, North Marion, Hernando, and surprising Crystal River.  Jones and Bishop Moore(who played a very close game in the playoffs last season)  move over from Region 4.  Vanguard and Lake Weir are dropping down from 6A Region 2.   And Dunnellon moves up from 4A.

Of all the teams in the state, a case could be made that North Marion is the team for which the new classification was most unkind.  Just when North Marion found its mojo and won a region title...now they get a host of contenders joining their region, including Bishop Moore, Jones, and Vanguard. And despite Bolles and Trinity Christian leaving Region 1, they get the pleasure of dealing with Raines if they do make the 5A semifinals.

District 6 could end up being one of the most competitive districts in the state(regardless of classification), featuring 4 teams that made the playoffs last season.  Region 2 is one of those regions where we could see a team(s) with a very good record not make the playoffs.
