Harwood said Palacio had to devote more time to his landscaping business and he is expecting his second child.

And then there were two (girls basketball teams left)

  • 11:18 am Wednesday, February 17th, 2010 by Post Staff

After last night’s region semifinals we’re down to two teams that are still alive – Trinity Christian and Jupiter, which move onto Saturday’s region finals. Unfortunately for the others that made it past the region quarters, they pretty much all ran into powerhouses. Lake Worth Christian lost to Hollywood Christian, American Heritage lost to Miramar Parkway Academy and St. Andrew’s lost to Plantation American Heritage (though that one was close). Berean Christian lost to Trinity but enjoyed its best season ever and Palm Beach Gardens lost to Jupiter, which was the only loss the Gators had to a Palm Beach County team all year.
