JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The area had an unprecedented season in girls soccer in 2020, with five girls teams playing for state championships and four bringing home titles. Is that in the cards for this year, too?
The soccer state playoffs begin Tuesday night for the girls, with a full slate of games for area teams. The boys playoffs begin on Wednesday night.
The big question — will we see another season like area girls teams produced in 2020?
Bartram Trail (Class 7A), Bishop Kenny (Class 4A), Bolles (3A) and St. Johns Country Day (2A) all brought home girls championships last year. Bolles’ championship was its third straight and the Spartans’ title was their ninth consecutive. Ponte Vedra played for a title in 5A and came up short.
On the boys side, Fleming Island was the last area team to win a state championship, bringing home the Class 4A title in 2017.
