The Florida High School Athletic Association released its finalized new districts and alignments for the next four years in boys and girls basketball as well as girls volleyball on Monday.

A few weeks ago, tentative new districts were released, and teams were given an opportunity to appeal. The districts released Monday are final for the next four years and the changes for the three different sports are generally uniform.

Class 8A District 3 currently includes Apopka, Evans, Ocoee, Olympia and West Orange, but starting with the 2015-16 season, it will be similar to recently realigned football districts, whichinclude just the Blue Darters, Trojans, Warriors and the Wekiva Mustangs.

Olympia moves to Class 8A District 5 with Dr. Phillips, along with Cypress Creek, Freedom and Oak Ridge. Ocoee will move down to Class 7A and compete in District 5, along with East Ridge, East River, Lake Howell and Lake Minneola.

Windermere Prep’s basketball program had tentatively been moved up to Class 4A but was bumped back down to 3A for the finalized districts, where it will remain in the same district as rival The First Academy.

Moving up a classification for basketball are Foundation Academy and Legacy, which will both compete in Class 3A District 5. CFCA remains in Class 2A District 6.

Complete listings of the new districts can be found at fhsaa.org.
