#Preview: 33rd Annual Ron Peters TofC

33rd Ron Peters Tournament of Champions

When & where: Friday & Saturday at Lake Mary.
Teams in the field: In addition to the host Rams, Forest, Hagerty, Lake Brantley, Lake Howell, Liberty County, Oviedo, Sandalwood, Seminole, University (Orange City), Wekiva, West Orange, West Port, Windermere and Winter Park will represent the coverage area. From outside the area, Bishop Moore, First Academy (Leesburg), Lake Buena Vista, Lake Highland Prep, Mt Dora, Space Coast, First Academy (Orlando) will all be on hand.
Returning team champion: Lake Highland Prep.
Returning individual champions: Liam Davis (Lake Highland Prep); Zeno Moore (Lake Highland Prep); Mason Medina (Bishop Moore); Jack De Sena (Lake Highland Prep); CJ Torres (Lake Highland Prep); Ethan Mojena (Lake Highland Prep); Ronan Tracy (Lake Highland Prep); Daniel Williams (Lake Highland Prep); Mason Martinez (Space Coast).
Synopsis: Even if Lake Highland Prep didn’t have eight of the 10 returning champions for this year’s tournament, it would be considered the overwhelming favorite. But the Highlanders do have eight champions back. I’d expect Hagerty to be next on the list, though Oviedo, Sandalwood and Seminole could also contend for top-3 positions, as might Mt Dora, First Academy and Bishop Moore.
