Varsity Soccer State Champs

In a historic moment for Carrollwood Day School, our Varsity Soccer Team has secured its first-ever State Championship title in the FSHAA 2A division. The team's remarkable journey culminated in a resounding 3-0 victory, marking a significant milestone in CDS athletics history.  Sr. Juan Garanton, Sr. Jacob Zager, and Jr. Greg Tilzer scored in the championship match to secure the victory for the Patriots.  

From the opening whistle to the final moments of the match, our players displayed unparalleled skill, determination, and teamwork on the field. Their unwavering commitment to excellence and their relentless pursuit of success have been evident throughout the season, culminating in this extraordinary achievement.  The team's defense, led by Goalkeeper Braden Montague, was stellar throughout the playoff run, only allowing one goal through District, Regional and State Tournament play. 

Led by our dedicated coaches, Kelvin Jones & Steve Debosky, and veteran CDS player and assistant Rhia Brewer, the team has overcome challenges, pushed boundaries, and demonstrated the true spirit of Patriot Pride. Their journey to the State Championship has been filled with hard work, perseverance, and moments of sheer brilliance.

The State Championship victory is a testament to the talent, dedication, and passion of our student-athletes. It is a reflection of the unwavering support and encouragement they have received from their coaches, teammates, families, and fans. Together, they have written a new chapter in CDS athletics history, one that will be remembered and celebrated for years to come.  The historic run culminated with the team not losing in the final 17 matches of the season, going 16-0-1, and finishing with an overall record of 18-2-1.

As we bask in the glory of this momentous achievement, let us extend our heartfelt congratulations to the entire Varsity Soccer Team, coaching staff, and everyone who has played a part in this incredible journey. Your hard work, determination, and resilience have made us all proud, and your victory will forever be etched in the annals of Carrollwood Day School athletics.

Here's to our State Champions – may your success inspire future generations of CDS athletes to dream big, work hard, and strive for greatness. Go Patriots!
