The Lake Worth (Fla.) Christian High School girls’ basketball team won the state championship for its division. This first-ever championship title coincided with the school’s 50th anniversary. Though several teams came close to winning state titles, “It’s been a great experience for everybody that we were finally able to make it happen,” said athletic director Jim Harwood. Team member Antishia Wright, named Most Valuable Player, has accepted a full scholarship to play basketball for West Virginia University next year. Lake Worth’s girls’ coach, Carlos Palacios, was named “Florida 1A Coach of the Year” by the Palm Beach Post and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
