Coral Springs High School boys and girls track and field are the official “City Champions” in a race between Marjory Stoneman Douglas, Coral Glades, Coral Springs Charter, and J.P. Taravella.

The boy’s team finished first with 110 points which were 27 more than MSD, while the girls beat MSD by one point.
