Slight changes to final soccer, swimming districts

By
Published:

Late last week the FHSAA posted finalized 2013-14 and 2014-15 districts for cross country, golf, boys and girls soccer, swimming and wrestling.

There were two significant changes involving county teams since tentative district lineups were released last month.

In both cases, the alteration consolidated all five local public school programs into one district, as Central moved into Class 3A, District 7 in soccer and Springstead shifted to 2A-6 in swimming.

Previously, Central had been assigned to 2A-6 for soccer, joining Dunnellon, South Sumter, Ocala-Trinity Catholic, The Villages and Williston (girls only).

Now the Bears will compete against Citrus, Crystal River, Fivay, Hernando, Hudson, Nature Coast, Springstead and Weeki Wachee in what becomes a nine-team 3A-7.

For swimming, Springstead had initially been placed in 3A-6 with Bartow, Lakeland-Kathleen, Lakeland-Lake Gibson, Eagle Lake-Lake Region, Lakeland, Land O’ Lakes, Lecanto, Mitchell, Winter Haven and Wiregrass Ranch.

The original 2A-6 setup was Central, Fivay, Hernando, Hudson, Nature Coast, Pasco, Weeki Wachee, Wesley Chapel and Zephyrhills.

Land O’ Lakes and Lecanto, like the Eagles, have also been added.

The only other tweak to the tentative districts came in wrestling. Springstead’s new district, 2A-5, will no longer feature Gainesville, which went to 2A-2.

As a result, 2A-5 will look like this: Belleview, Citrus, Ocala-Lake Weir, Lecanto, Springstead and Ocala-Vanguard.
