The boys basketball team began the week with a 57-44 win over Monarch High School on December 4. They went on to beat Charles W Flanagan High School 63-42 before falling in their final game against Hallandale High School.

“We are slowly building a culture of brotherhood with a collective goal of winning and individual achievements,” Head Coach Shaune Cannon said.

Next, the Eagles will have a week full of rivalry games with matchups against Coral Glades, Coral Springs High School, and Coral Springs Charter.

The girls basketball team recorded their first win of the season on Monday against Monarch High School 61-20. They went on to Fallon Wednesday against Charles W. Flanagan High School. They will have games against Coral Glades and Coral Springs High School next week.

The boys soccer team began the week with a disappointing 6-1 loss against Pembroke Pines Charter. However, they responded with a 2-1 win over Cardinal Gibbons High School and then settled for a 1-1 draw against Charles W. Flanagan High School.

They are now 3-2-2 and will play Cooper City High School in their next game on Monday, December 11, at 5 p.m. The Cowboys come into the game with a record of 4-3-1 but lost 1-0 in their only meeting with the Eagles last season.
