  1. it's a 6 quarter jamboree too with JV teams playing the first 2 quarters, then all 4 Varsity teams the last 4 quarters
  2. Vanguard, North Marion, Forest, Dunnellon in a 4 team jamboree May 18th at Dunnellon
  3. Vanguard baseball starting off district play pretty strong, back to back nights against Middleburg, last night a 6-0 win at home, tonight a 12-1 road win
  4. Seems Braden River doing a nice job of loading back up this offseason and the OL coach Spencer Hodges is one of the best coaches around, wouldn't be surprised if he isn't a head coach somewhere in the future
  5. 2 big-time wins for the softball team.. definitely 2 momentum building wins
  6. that's very true. Baseball is just a game that is very hard to predict, just never know what's going to happen when District play rolls around, maybe Vanguard and Columbia will battle for district title this year lol
  7. I'll be really surprised if we pull something off in baseball lol we haven't been to the Playoffs in years and from what I have gathered we're off to another rough start😂😂
  8. much appreciated Broward, hopefully we can maintain this success for along time coming, basketball is hard to predict because we're losing so much after this year. Football should be really strong for awhile with a very strong JV group coming up mixed with the 2 all Americans we have coming back in Watkins and Manuel
  9. Great win and congrats on state title number 7, y'all were definitely the best team I seen in the 2 days I made it over their, well rounded complete team, Edgewater was up 17-15 late in the first then y'all hit them with a 28-5 run to close the half including holding them without a field goal the entire 2nd quarter, those runs y'all put together are impressive in itself, well deserved
  10. No doubt. And their was alot their, atleast 200 to 250 people I'd say, not bad for an afternoon game and we had somewhere around the same, but like I say not bad for a game on a weekday in the afternoon, as far as y'all's fans had to travel from Ft Lauderdale, That's a 3 and a half hour trip. Saturday every game should be really packed up
  11. It was a great game all the way through for almost a full 3 quarters, we were down 50-49 with a minute and some change left on the 3rd quarter clock, then y'all closed the 3rd on a 7-0 run and then hit us with a huge 22-5 run the last 8 minutes of the game, I knew a big-time run was coming and it was just a matter of time before it came, it's hard to run with all them athletes y'all got for 4 full quarters without getting wore down and on top of that we didn't have our 6"5 Freshman big man Leonard Manuel who was left home for missing practice on Tuesday, but I'm not the one too make excuses we had a great season and Dillard is the defending Champs for a reason, y'all are alot better then what I seen last year in the KOTS tournament,even met a few young Dillard fans after the game that were really classy and watched the 2nd 7A semifinal with them, plan on getting back on Saturday to watch y'all win it all and catch some of the other state championship games as well. Edgewater will be a tough game as they won their game by 30 over Lehigh but I just can't see them hanging and running with the Panthers for 4 quarters, but it was a successful season for us and I'm happy with the season we had and I appreciate it bruh, y'all are a fun team to watch that's for sure
  12. The 3 pm game pits defending state champion and always loaded Dillard Panthers up against my alma mater Vanguard knights. The other semifinal at approximately 5 pm pits Lehigh acres vs always tough and state contender Orlando Edgewater. Any thoughts and predictions on these games? I honestly don't know what to think of our chances going in but I damn well know we're going to be in for a hell of a fight against Dillard, who's 4 out of 5 starters are Committed to D1 schools, the size advantage is definitely in the Panthers favor, as our tallest guy is 6"5 freshman Leonard MoMo Manuel, I'm heading over in the morning to Lakeland to catch the 2 6A semifinal games before 7A gets going in the afternoon, win or lose once a knight always a knight and I'm damn proud of what this team accomplished this season no matter the outcome tomorrow afternoon, can't be dissatisfied with a team that hasn't been in this position in 35 years, this team has made history not only with the school but the county as well, won the first title in boys basketball since 2003, played for a regional championship for the first time since 1994, and got to state for the first time since 1982 and is also the first county team to make the final four since 2001 Belleview, couldn't be more proud of what this group has done this season
  13. I agree their is way too much talent to miss the playoffs and I don't think they will miss the playoffs being in the district they in, they should make the playoffs and go a round or 2 and that will probably be enough to keep Booth around for atleast another year
  14. lol I bet y'all did, and hopefully you can make it over, did y'all travel well to Lakeland last year that you know of? I seen to that they're no longer going by sessions over their anymore, just charging 10 dollars for a day pass..
  15. Good win down their in Miami tonight..We will see y'all in Lakeland on Thursday, I'm already getting that day off lol, wouldn't miss it for the world, don't have any early predictions on what the score will be but I know we're going to come in swinging and be clawing and put up a fight to the very end, we going to enjoy this one for the time being tho and get ready for next week.
  16. Going Dillard by 10 atleast, I think y'all will be a bit to much for a young Norland team to deal with. Just way to much experience on the Dillard side.. and goodluck tonight Dillard, hopefully we get too see y'all in Lakeland Thursday afternoon
  17. 2 of the students had them their last night ringing them like crazy lol I didn't think it was allowed either until I seen it last night and the refs never said anything to them to stop or throw them out
  18. 13-2 this year, lost to LA Salle from Ohio in KOTS semifinals and a 11 point loss to Gainesville Bucholtz was the other
