The regular season has wrapped up for boys soccer teams across the county, and most are getting ready for district tournaments, which start today.

Jupiter wraps up the season in the same place they spent much of it: No. 1. The Warriors fended off new No. 10 Royal Palm in their last game last week, securing the top spot.
