GAINESVILLE, FL. – Ransom Everglades School in Miami will host the 2018 Florida High School Water Polo and Boys Volleyball State Championships, the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) announced Tuesday. Both on-campus events will take place May 4-5, 2018.
“We are excited to bring multiple sports to the same location for what is sure to be an action-packed weekend,” FHSAA Executive Director George Tomyn said. “Ransom Everglades has been a terrific partner for past events, and we expect this inaugural dual championship experience to provide our student-athletes, coaches and fans with memories that will last a lifetime.”
Since 2012, RES has hosted the water polo event. Just like this past year, the 2018 edition of the championships will feature one classification in each gender playing two semifinal matches and one championship match in a two-day, single-elimination tournament.
After being held at Golden Gate High School in Naples the previous two years, RES will host the boys volleyball finals for the first time this spring. Just like this past May, the 2018 version of the one-classification event will feature seven matches to be played over two days. The four quarterfinal matches will take place May 4, with the semifinals and championship game being held May 5.
Ticket information for both events will be announced soon via GoFan, the exclusive digital ticketing provider for the FHSAA. Downloadable today for both Apple and Android, the free GoFan app features the ability to buy tickets to FHSAA State Series events as well as enter the venue through mobile scanning.
