The Coral Springs High School boys basketball team were officially crowned District Champions Friday night following their 73-48 win over Boca Raton Community High School.

This was the Colts’ fifth District Title in school history and the first one since 2018. The Colts previously won Districts in 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2018. They also won a State Championship during that time.

“It was an incredibly hard challenge in what has been a roller-coaster type of season, said Head Coach Devin Barta. I am proud of the kids for staying on course and believing in themselves and the coaches to pull out a District Championship.”

The Colts started the week off with a 56-37 win over Spanish River Community High School. Then, CSHS trailed by two points on Wednesday against Deerfield Beach when Allen Matthieu hit a game-winning three before Greg Spate forced a turnover with a block in the closing seconds.

CSHS completed the week with their most dominating win as they beat seventh seed Boca Raton High School 73-48. Spate, who led the team with 18 points In the semifinals, topped that with a game-high 21 on Friday.

Jordan Carmona added ten while Matthieu had nine as the Colts moved to 16-10 on the season. Next, they will have a chance to compete in Regionals starting on Thursday, February 17. They are expected to play at home but will wait to see their opponent as CSHS is now only three wins away from advancing to States once again.
