Eastern Florida State College, who finished third in the 2018 national tournament, headlined the remaining Region 8 entries in the jamboree. The Titans were joined by the College of Central Florida, Daytona State College, Florida State College at Jacksonville, Hillsborough Community College, Polk State College, Santa Fe College and St. Petersburg College.
