I drove to Lakeland Saturday night with my wife to see my nephew James Ferrell play in his biggest basketball game of the year. I'm glad I was able to attend the game and was reminded of just how much excitement surrounds high school basketball. The energy in the arena was felt long after the event.
This was Winter Park High School's 2nd State Championship win; and in back-to-back years with 2010, which is very rare. The runner-up team was Dr. Phillips HS--Winter Park's same opponent from their 2010 Championship. This says a lot about Central Florida high school athletics, having the two top-ranked basketball teams out of 400+ schools statewide.
My congrats go out to the Winter Park Wildcats, their families and our wonderful community of supporters from Winter Park!
