The Coral Springs High School basketball team made their highly anticipated debut Wednesday night and did not disappoint.
The Colts picked up an 83-72 win over Plantation High School and have now started 1-0 in six of the past eight seasons.
Head Coach Devin Barta was happy with his team’s performance and thinks his players will continue to improve and have a solid season as the year goes on.
“I really liked how we got contributions from so many different players tonight, said Barta. “We played a lot of players, and everyone who got in gave us great energy and hustle. It was the definition of a team win.”
Walter Pierre-Louis led the team with 23 points. Alex Pierre-Louis recorded a double-double with 14 points and 12 rebounds, while Jevah Chervin also had 14 points. These three players combined for 13 steals.
The Colts are coming off a season where they won their fifth District Championship in school history and finished the season with 16 wins. Next, they will face St. Brendan High School on Friday, Dec. 2, at 7 p.m. in the Kruel Showcase. The Sabres are 2-0 this year with wins over Lely and Golden Gate High School.
