It was a great week at Coral Glades, with several teams holding Senior Nights as well as the boys’ lacrosse team advancing in the District Tournament.
Boys volleyball honored Daniel Fryberg, Chase Fisher and Ryan Cecil, Timothy Miller, Shey Kaplan, Noah Demauro, and Jackson Brooks before picking up a 25-22, 25-23, 25-23 win for their sixth win of the season against St. Thomas Aquinas. They fell in five tight sets the following day against Western High School and will play Cardinal Gibbons High School in their next match on Tuesday at 4:30 p.m.
“The seniors are a solid group that embodies everything a coach would want,” Head Coach Brianna Dawson said. “Strong work ethic, pushing past their comfort zones and handling business. Each senior feeds off each other on and off the court, and that’s what’s allowed us to be successful so far.”
The baseball team honored Josh Howitt, Julian Garcia, Jordan Archer, and Anthony Martin Del Campo before their 5-0 loss against Pompano Beach High School. The Jaguars, though, fell to 8-8 this year but had a dominant 11-1 win against Stranahan High School. Their next game is set for Tuesday against West Broward School at 4 p.m.
“I’m proud of my seniors for their hard work over the course of these years at Coral Glades High School, and I am excited to see what the future holds for these four young men,” Head Coach Joe Franco said.
The softball team recorded their ninth win of the season and honored Ciara Gendron and Mackenzie Wolfe. They beat J.P Taravella 16-1 behind an incredible performance from Gendron. Not only did she earn the win, but she also knocked in two runs. Shelby Stephens had a triple and also knocked in two runs, while Casey Zanijan finished with two RBIs.
Carmela Smith, Wolf, Hannah Grandez, and Dominique Soto knocked in runs, with Haleigh Thomas also pitching in relief, striking out three. They will play Marjory Stoneman Douglas in their next game on Thursday against St. Thomas Aquinas.
“Our two seniors, catcher MacKenzie Wolfe and pitcher Ciara Gendron are the heart and soul of our current team,” head coach Richard Waldorf said. “They are good friends off the field and leaders on the field. Between them, Mack and Cici lead the team.”
The Coral Glades girls flag football team also had their first win on April 11 against West Broward and will play J.P. Taravella in the District Tournament later this month.
Boys lacrosse also recorded a win in the playoffs’ opening round against their rival Coral Springs High School. Playing in a heavy rain storm, the Jaguars won 13-7 over the Colts for their fifth win of the season before falling in the District Semifinals to St. Thoma Aquinas.
