Coral Springs High School
It was a special night at Coral Springs High School during the Colts varsity football game, with members of the cheer and band honored on Senior Night.
The cheer team has 14 seniors on their team: Heidi Brown, Rylie Feller, Briana Altidort, Vania Saint Fleur, Isabella Visca, Gianna Greco, Temiah Shuman, Victoria Ortiz, Tchelsie Septembre, Angelina Brown, Madissen Drakes, Anaiya Bailey, Amani Hill, and Trista Currier.
“Coaching this group of seniors has been so fun this sideline season,” said Head Coach Amanda Mortimer. “Majority of them have been with me for three to four years of their high school cheer careers. It’s been amazing to watch them grow.”
On the football field, the Colts fell to Monarch High School 40-0 as the Knights were crowned District Champions. The Colts now head into their game against J.P. Taravella with a record of 3-6 under first-year Head Coach Fred Flowers.
From the start of the season, it has been a rebuilding year for Coral Glades. After making it to the postseason the last two years, the Jaguars have only two wins this year and fell to Western High School Friday night.
The Jaguars will close their regular season with a matchup against Marjory Stoneman Douglas on Senior Night. The Eagles are 6-3 this year and have won all ten previous head-too-head meetings. Kickoff is set for Friday, Nov. 4, at 7 p.m.
