South Region Crossover History
|2016 Recap and All-Tournament Team||2017 Recap and All-Tournament Team|
Regional crossover events between the Sunshine State Conference and Gulf South Conference have been occuring for well over a decade, with past set-ups including smaller eight-team tournaments between the two conferences, as well as larger events where teams from both conferences were hosted at separate locations based on overall seedings.
The current one-of-a-kind event that fans know and love today, with both the SSC and GSC teams all under one roof for a multi-day tournament, kicked off in 2015 when it was held at the Coliseum on the campus of the University of West Georgia in Carrollton, Ga. The multi-day round robin tournament in 2015 was the first of its kind, and featured 22 teams in total - 11 from the GSC, as well the nine members from them SSC plus then-provisional members Palm Beach Atlantic and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Each team played three matches over the course of two days, with a maximum of four matches being played at one time.
Now in its fourth year, the South Region Crossover has become one of the highlights of the season for both conferences. The 2018 event will mark the second time it has been hosted at the Orlando Sports Center, and will feature a total of 24 teams - 12 from the Gulf South Conference, and 11 from the Sunshine State Conference with the addition of the Spring Hill College Badgers as the 12th team.
