Springstead leads 5A District 6 for Boys Basketball, but Zephyrhills is Right on their Tail

The Hornet’s first appearance with Springstead ended with a 76-24 loss on December 6, 2019. Even though it was a tough loss again for Weeki Wachee, they did manage to get 20 more points off of Springstead, ending the score at 77-44.

From this moment on, Springstead has some major contenders to deal with going towards the end of the season.
