Florida High School Basketball Championships Complete: Winter Park, Dwyer, and Leesburg Cruise to Victory

And with Winter Park beating Dr. Phillips in the Class 6A Championship tonight, the Florida high school basketball championship season is finished. The finals results, along with a link to full coverage of each game, is provided below:

1A Championship: Summit Christian Beats Grandview 62-50
2A Championship: Sagemont Beats Royals (Orlando) 53-41
3A Championship: Rickards (Tallahassee) Beats Jones (Orlando) 60-54
4A Championship: Leesburg Beats Cardinal Gibbons (Fort Lauderdale) 66-58
5A Championship: Dwyer (West Palm Beach) Beats Lake Wales 72-57
6A Championship: Winter Park Beats Dr. Phillips (Orlando) 52-44

There were some upsets in this tournament, such as Summit Christian beating the high scoring Grandview team in the 1A championship, but there were also plenty of instances of dominating teams continuing to dominate. Notably, nationally-ranked Dwyer rolled over Lake Wales in the Class 5A championship, Winter Park beat Dr. Phillips in the Class 6A title for the second season in a row, and Rickards won their second consecutive Class 3A title.

These victories mark the first state championships for two teams: Summit Christian (1A) and Sagemont (2A). This is also the first state championship for Leesburg (3A) since 1977.
