It was a busy day of high school basketball across Coral Springs, with all four local teams in action.
Coral Springs, Coral Glades, and J.P. Taravella High School all picked up wins to advance to the Regional Semifinals, while Coral Springs Charter fell against North Broward Preparatory School.
Coral Springs High School
As the two seed, Coral Springs High School defeated Park Vista High School 83-20 for the team’s tenth win in 17 games this year. The 83 points are the most they have scored since January 2021 against the Trojans.
“Overall teams performance was phenomenal,” said Head Coach Brenton Hankerson. “They placed very well on defense and flew around today.”
The Colts face Boca Raton Community High School after the Bobcats defeated Marjory Stoneman Douglas in their quarterfinals game.
This will be the first meeting of the season between CSHS as Boca Raton is 11-12 this season. Tip-off is set for Wednesday, February 3 at 6 p.m.
Coral Glades is also following their win over South Plantation High School. The Jaguars are now back over .500 with a record of 11-10 and will play Cypress Bay High School on Wednesday, February 2 at 6 p.m.
Cypress Bay is the two seed and ended the regular season with three straight losses by at least eight points.
Coral Springs Charter
While their season ended, Coral Springs Charter had a strong season in year number one of Head Coach Andrea Rowe.
The Panthers fell 74-54 and finished the season with a record 10-8. While both seniors Katerina Martinez and Davina Irizarry are set to graduate, CSC will still return several starters for 2022-23.
After winning only four games in the past three years, J.P. Taravella is now a win away from the District Final following their win over Fort Lauderdale High School.
