It was a terrific start to the week for Coral Springs Charter, with three varsity teams picking up their first win of the season.
The girls’ basketball team posted a dominant 33-9 win to begin their season over J.P. Taravella High School. It was also win number one for Head Coach Emily Williams.
“I am super proud of my girls for garnishing a win on our season opener, but we have a long road ahead of us and a lot of work to do,” said Williams.
A 2014 graduate of CSC, Williams is in her first year back with the Panthers after playing in college at Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach.
The team consists of Maya Pinero, Arianna Irizarry, Maleia Coker, Zylaah Marders, Jezebel Andrews, Jayde Riley, Trynitee Bottex, Isabella Yarala, and Shasha Lemmi Rush.
“It’s a great feeling being able to coach, but it’s a greater feeling being able to do it at your alma mater,” Williams added. “My coaches at charter pushed me to excel in basketball on and off the court, and I want to instill that same motivation into my team.”
Next, the Panthers will return to the court on Nov. 28 against Piper High School. The Bengals are 0-2 this year with losses against Everglades and Pompano Beach High School.
The boys’ soccer team defeated Charles W. Flanagan High School 4-3 for their first win on Monday. The Panthers then backed that up with another victory less than 24 hours later with a 2-1 win over Nova High School and have already matched their win total from the 2021-22 season.
Their team consists of James Camacho, Sebastian Callem, Elijah Lentz, Brandon Moll, Alex Rosano, Elijah McDonald, Jaxson Goldstein, Michael Tirado, Brandon Valdez, Santiago Rojas, Emmanuel Camacho, John Kladovasilakis, Samuel Giraldo, Preston Griffin, Caua Pinto, Lucas Yahney, Jeancarlo Velez, Gerald Tibbetts, Christian De Leon, and Joseph Botting.
The girls’ soccer team won 4-0 to move to 1-2 following a season where they made Regionals and won 16 games.
Their team is made up of Addison Capplis, Arianna Esteban, Abigail Foster, Rylie Gentile, Katianna Grace, Riley Guerrera, Kayla Kreisler, Anna Mariano, Danielle Mersch, Marissa Micioni, Asia Picardi, Sophie Ribeiro, Maria Rojas, Camila Ruiz, Sophia Ruiz, Kathryn Shaggy, Victoria Tedesco and Lynnae Varkala.
Next, both soccer teams will play Fort Lauderdale High School on Thursday, Nov. 17. Both Fort Lauderdale teams have one win this year.
