It was a great week of basketball for Coral Springs High School, led by the girls basketball team winning the District Championship on Friday.

“I’m very proud of the girls they beat a very good basketball team.” said Head Coach Brenton Hankerson. “They were down and didn’t quit and it paid off. I really appreciate my Coaches Don and Brian. I wouldn’t work without them and they hard work they put in along with the girls.”

They started the week off by defeating Cooper City High School 67-17 on Wednesday, Hankerson said his team really stepped up in the second half.

Despite falling in the regular season to Western, the Colts got their revenge in the Championship game with a 53-50 victory. CSHS also moved to 19-5 this year and qualified for Regionals, where they will wait to see where they will be seeded and who they will play.

On Monday, the Coral Springs High School boys basketball team picked up an 81-40 win on Senior Night over Charles W. Flanagan High School.

“It was a great Senior night,” said Head Coach Devin Barta. “It was awesome to honor our seniors and be able to come out with a win. These four seniors have given tremendous effort this year and set a great example for the younger players. Their impact will be felt for years to come.”
