SPRING HILL- If there’s anything that this Springstead High School’s football team has shown this 2019 season, it’s resiliency. 

Mike Garofano’s group has been tested week in and week out and the time came for the Eagles to answer the bell against a hungry Dade City Pasco team last Friday, hoping to bounce back from a 20-0 loss the previous week to St. Petersburg Dixie Hollins. 

Springstead defeats Crystal River 21-0 and improves to 4-0

SPRING HILL- The best team in Hernando County resides out of Spring Hill these days.

Another example of that sentiment was proven last Friday when Springstead hosted Crystal River. The Eagles’ defense has already pitched a couple of shutout victories and added another to their belt, as Springstead rolled to a 21-0 win over the Pirates at home. Springstead now improves to 4-0 on the season and heads into this week’s matchup against Dade City Pasco with plenty of momentum.
