In their first District game, our Gulf Coast Sharks beat the Palmetto Ridge Bears 18 – 7! Through 3 quarters the game seemed evenly contested but the Sharks scored a touchdown to begin the fourth quarter and outlasted a weather delay to claim a victory. Currently, the Sharks share first place in the district with Naples High School. Great job, Team! Thank you to the loyal fans who stuck it out through the deluge and our volunteers in the merchandise tent! Thank you to the Cheerleading Team for pumping-up the crowd, even in the storm. Game night was also Senior Night for the GCHS Marching Band. Congratulations and good luck to those seniors!
