Both the Olympia High and West Orange High boys lacrosse teams have had historic seasons in 2024 and after winning their respective district championships the two are primed to continue their success in the FHSAA state championship tournament. 

The Titans will head into the playoffs with a 14-4 record, which is the most wins in a season in program history, after topping Lake Nona in the Class 2A, District 7 championship, 9-6. 

Olympia's district title win is the first time the program has won the crown since 2013. 

The Warriors (12-5) topped Lake Minneola in the District 5 championship game by a score of 12-6. This win marked the first time West Orange won the district crown since 2017 and the end of a tough run of district tournaments for this group under coach Brandon Boss.

"It's meant a lot to this senior class and the coaching staff as well, to get over that hump, we've really tried and pushed for this title and have been so close for a couple of years now," Boss said. "We made it to the district championship game my first year, four years ago, and lost to Boone (High) in a double overtime game, 8-7. The following year we lost pretty badly against a really good Windermere (High) team and then last year, we were up at halftime and ended up losing that game as well. So it means a lot to finally get over the hump and push this program to the greatness that we've known it can get to."

Next up for the area's two boys district champions will be the FHSAA Class 2A state playoffs, with regional quarterfinal matchups set to start on Saturday, April 27. 

The boys lacrosse playoff brackets will be announced live today, April 19, at 2 p.m. on the FHSAA YouTube channel.
