With the coronavirus in full effect, the winter sports season seemed, for a time, to be in peril.  But alas, it has carried on.  What’s more– the teams are thriving and experiencing impressive improvements from previous years. Here are the specifics courtesy of Coach Paoletti:

Varsity Boys Basketball is currently 9-6 (9 wins, 6 losses) with only four remaining regular-season games. The boys had a big win against Northside Christian last week and could win-out the remainder of the season. The team recently defeated Lakeside Christian 66-54. If the District tournament was to be played today, our boys would be seeded 3rd of the 6 team district, behind Cardinal Mooney by only 1 point.

Varsity Girls Basketball completed their regular season 10-6. They have defeated big public schools such as Palmetto HS, Sarasota HS, Bayshore HS, Manatee HS and defeated Bradenton Christian 67-36. If the District tournament was to be played today, our girls would be seeded 3rd of the 6 team district, behind Cardinal Mooney and ODA, but we have defeated both of them since.

Varsity Boys Soccer is currently 9-4-1 heading into Districts. Difficult wins against Seffner Christian, Bayshore HS and Cardinal Mooney have the boys right where they need to be to make a lot of noise in the postseason. If the District tournament was to be played today, our boys would be seeded 1st of the 5 team district, but only by 2 points in front of BCS, who we have not played this season.

Varsity Girls Soccer is currently 3-7-3 with only one remaining regular-season game, Friday Home against Seffner Christian. They have competed well during the season with tough games against Sarasota HS (T 0-0), Palmetto HS (T 0-0) and a 1-2 loss against powerhouse Manatee HS. If the District tournament was to be played today, our girls would be seeded 2nd of the 5 team district. However, behind Cardinal Mooney by only 1 point. Two wins this week might place them in 1st during the final week of rankings.

So, as you can see, SSES has not allowed the pandemic to negatively impact this important season, nor has it affected the players’ spirits. Let’s go Falcons!
