FHSAA To Continue Basketball Championships At RP Funding Center

GAINESVILLE, FL (7/30/19) – The Florida High School Athletic Association and RP Funding Center announced Tuesday the signing of a one-year extension for the 2020 Boys and Girls State Basketball Championships.

“Next spring will mark 25-consecutive years Lakeland has hosted the basketball state championships,” FHSAA Executive Director George Tomyn said. “This is a testament to a great partnership the FHSAA has established with the RP Funding Center and the Lakeland community. Together we will continue to provide a memorable experience for our student-athletes.”

With the reduction of classes and a new playoff structure, the tournaments will now run Wednesday through Saturday. The format will remain the same with four-team single elimination tournaments conducted in all seven classifications for both the girls and boys events.

“We are happy to extend our partnership with the FHSAA and continue to support both the Girls and Boys Florida High School Basketball State Championships here at the facility,” said Tony Camarillo, Executive Director of the RP Funding Center. “We believe Lakeland is the perfect location for the tournament.”
