CLASS 4A, DISTRICT 5
TEAMS: Palm Harbor University, Gaither, Hillsborough, River Ridge, Sickles.
THE SKINNY: PHU moves up in classification but should still be a favorite to win this district. Because county schools do not travel out of county to play matches, the Hurricanes will not play these teams until the district tournament. Sarah Buchanan is the Hurricanes' top player.
CLASS 3A, DISTRICT 9
TEAMS: Countryside, East Lake, Gulf, Land O'Lakes, Ridgewood.
THE SKINNY: With Countryside's Jennifer Dent leading the way, the Cougars are the district favorite. East Lake is always competitive and could vie for top spot in the district.
CLASS 3A, DISTRICT 10
TEAMS: Boca Ciega, Clearwater, Largo, Northeast, Pinellas Park, Seminole, St. Petersburg.
THE SKINNY: A wide-open district, depth will determine the champion. Boca Ciega has top player Tiffanie Kalvoda. Seminole has Desiree Collins, but depth is an issue. St. Petersburg must rebuild after last season's district championship. Clearwater and Largo could surprise.
CLASS 2A, DISTRICT 10
TEAMS: Clearwater Central Catholic, Dixie Hollins, Dunedin, Gibbs, Lakewood, Osceola, Tarpon Springs.
THE SKINNY: Lakewood won a district championship for the first time last season and could do so again this year. Sophomore Kaela Kennedy returns as the Spartans' No. 1, but there also is plenty of depth. Dunedin, Tarpon Springs and CCC should be competitive.
CLASS A, DISTRICT 10
TEAMS: Admiral Farragut, Canterbury, Indian Rocks Christian, Pinellas H.E.A.T., St. Petersburg Catholic, Shorecrest.
THE SKINNY: Canterbury and Shorecrest are usually one-two in this district, and that should be the case again.
