Defending Class 8A state football champion Plant High, along with Wharton, are two of 16 teams that will compete in the prestigious Heath Evans Foundation 7-on-7 Championship next month at West Palm Beach King’s Academy.
The invitation-only tournament includes the team the Panthers knocked off last season for the 8A crown, Miramar, Class 7A semifinalist Palm Beach Gardens Dwyer, Class 6A runner-up Miami Central and Class 4A runner-up Miami Booker T. Washington. The tourney is slated for June 9. Plant is the event’s defending champion while Wharton will be participating for the first time.
Teams will be split into two divisions and play a round-robin format starting in the morning. Following a lunch break, single-elimination play begins with the semifinals set for 3 p.m. and the championship game scheduled for 4 p.m.
The tourney is open to the public at a cost of $5 per person. Tickets are available at the gate. The King’s Academy is located at 8401 Belvedere Road in West Palm Beach, about one mile east of 441. Proceeds from the tournament benefit the Heath Evans Foundation, a not-for-profit institution established to help abused children.
