An interesting thing is how many will show up on Friday?
Remember, no tournament last year and the 2019 finals at Boca Raton were still one class. That weekend was about 2,500 sold tickets . . .
But this year, including Bolles as a 1st timer:
Bolles, Canterbury, Plant, St. Edward’s, Community School of Naples . . . are all FIRST TIMERS
Steinbrenner, Winter Park . . . it’s been a long time since they’ve been here
Local schools like Lake Mary and LHP Girls will be out in numbers
American Heritage-Delray, Jupiter and St. Thomas Aquinas travel well, as do Ponte Vedra Girls and Bartram Trail Girls
Vero Beach Girls hasn’t been here for awhile either
And Saint Andrew’s is really hungry for a state title, which they haven’t won since 2012!, they’ll be out in numbers
Winter Park High to Austin-Tindall Park is 29 miles and they have 3,400 students
Lake Mary High to Austin-Tindall Park is 42 miles and they have 2,900 students
Lake Highland to Austin-Tindall Park is 26 miles and they have 1,200 students . . . I believe they are the closest
Plant is 89 miles away and has 2,400 students
Would anyone be surprised if 2,500 show up on Friday ALONE?
Hope you planned for it Gainesville . . .
