One final playoff spot in our entire area is up for grabs, and it’s up on the Treasure Coast.
There are six district champions crowned in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast: American Heritage, Atlantic, Fort Pierce Central, Glades Central, Glades Day, Inlet Grove, Palm Beach Central, Seminole Ridge and Vero Beach.
Meanwhile Cardinal Newman, Clewiston, Dwyer, Jensen Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Park Vista, South Fork, Treasure Coast and Village Academy have playoff spots.
Viera stunned Martin County to force a three-team tiebreaker for second place in District 12-7A with those two schools and Port St. Lucie, which will take place Monday night.
The only records listed below are district records. That’s the only record applied to playoff qualification. Remember: The top two teams in each district qualify for the regional quarterfinals. The district champ gets to host its first-round game, while the runner-up hits the road.
