Championship Dreams

District Champions.

Regional Champions.

Final Four Qualifier.

A team that went further than any other in the previous five decades.

A team that held the number one ranked team in the state of Florida to under fifty points.

Only to lose by five after closing the score to within two with two minutes to go in the game.

Seasons should not have to end in heartbreak.

But, unless you win it all. That’s what happens.

46-41. Heartbreak.

Congratulations, Jesuit.

State Champions – The Providence Stallions

The Providence Stallions played Coral Springs Christian in the FHSAA Class 3A title game today in Lakeland, Florida.

The Stallions fell behind early to a feisty Coral Springs team, but eventually prevailed 62-56 to take home their second state title in boys hoops.

Led by Grayson Allen’s 31 points, the Jimmy Martin coached squad enjoyed celebrating their success on the court this year and with four returning starters, things look good for another run next year to state.

The Leesburg team played a tough, physical game with strong beyond the arc shooting which seemed to take the BK squad out of their rhythm in the first half.
