Over the past 25 years, these teams each appeared in a state final one year, but in all other years, never made it past the second round of the playoffs.  Who are the teams?

 

Tampa Wharton? Tampa Chamberlin? Lake Brantley? Sarasota Booker?  Pensacola Catholic? Kings Academy? Hamilton County? Mandarin? 

That's all I got. I know a couple are right, but am pretty sure some are wrong.

...hmmm.  Well, Apopka played in a big game against this team the year this team went to the state final.  Would not be surprised if you were at that game.  

All the teams I can think of that meet the criterion have made several fairly deep runs. So, I have to admit I am stumped. I would have said Lake Brantley, but we already have that accounted for. So, I have no clue. I could not be Edgewater or Boone, or Dr. Phillips or Osceola or ...

I remember seeing this team play in the state final...such fond memories  The game was was on a delightful December day, which was a relief since they had been predicting a deluge that Saturday.  I had not gotten any sleep the night before, and was deliberating whether I should make the drive.  Turns out I did, so I was delirious come gametime.  There were big lines at the stadium, so there was a delay getting in, but it was worth the wait.  After the game, I met a friend from the area and we had a delicious dinner, feasting on sushi and some other delicacies.

I remember now. We played them in the semifinal and scored first but ended up losing to them. They lost one of their two star players in that semi and the next week melted down like a snowman in the May sun to Miramar. The team in question was the Deland Bulldogs! How could I forget the pain of that semi loss.
