As the rest of Florida starts a run at a state championship, south Florida area programs focus on a different prize.

When the FHSAA (Florida High School Athletic Association) voted to start the season too early for a majority of Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties programs to take part in the series because of high Covid numbers, many who care about the athletes and the exposure they were missing, did something about it.

The Tri-County Championships were born – and today’s second poll reflects how teams are playing – with one week remaining before the playoff matchups are set.

This event will culminate with playoffs and a championship in all (8A, 7A and 1A-6A) classes.

Six high school sports writers from Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach are took are part of the selection process to determine the overall rankings.

By seasons end the top two teams from each county, plus two at-large teams will compete in a Gold and Silver Bracket over three weeks of playoffs to determine the Tri-County South Florida Champion.

The Tri-County championships will be played Dec. 21-22 at a site to be determined.
