District 5A-7 Preseason Glance

Class 5A, Region 2, District 7

Teams: (2014 record)
Brooksville Central Bears (2-8)
Citrus Hurricanes (5-5)
Crystal River Pirates (2-8)
Hernando Leopards (3-6)
Lecanto Panthers (5-5)
Nature Coast Tech Sharks (6-4)
Weeki Wachee Hornets (1-9)


2015 Outlook:
There’s plenty of room at the top of this district even though Nature Coast will return with the district’ best record from last season. Hernando and Citrus Counties are JUST on the peripheral of many of the hot spots so these squads will play the entire season with a chip on their shoulders when it comes time to prove they’ve got some talent of their own along the northern reaches of the Suncoast. Expect this district to be super competitive for its respective postseason spots and for some heads to be turned by some of the talent this lies within this district.
