Lacrosse: District play begins this week 

By Anthony Chiang

The postseason is here.

Lacrosse district competition begins Monday and the top teams advance to FHSAA Finals First-Round play-in competition later this month. The playoffs conclude with the state finals, which will be held at IMG Academy in Bradenton starting on May 2.

Dwyer, Cardinal Newman, Palm Beach Central and Spanish River will host district tournaments on the boys side. Meanwhile, Benjamin, Oxbridge Academy, Park Vista and St. Andrew’s will host district tournaments on the girls side.

Orlando-Lake Highland Prep enters as the boys defending state champion and Vero Beach enters as the girls defending state champion. St. Andrews’ boys lacrosse team finished as the state runner-up and Benjamin’s girls lacrosse team reached the state semifinals last season.
