JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Florida High School Athletic Association released final assignments for the 2020 spring sports season on Tuesday. 

Baseball, lacrosse and softball were the three major releases in the team sports, with major new looks coming in District 1-7A — classifications are being reduced from nine to seven — in both baseball and softball. Those districts include Bartram Trail, Mandarin, Nease, Oakleaf and Sandalwood. 

The other major change comes in lacrosse, which had been played under a single classification since its debut. It is now two classifications in both boys and girls. The Ponte Vedra boys, the defending state champion, are in 3-2A with Bartram Trail, Creekside, Flagler Palm Coast and Nease.

Tennis, track and field and boys weightlifting were also released. Those can be found here.

Baseball and softball districts won't mean what they've meant in the past. Teams no longer have to schedule district games. They will be seeded for the district tournament using rankings from the website, MaxPreps.
