The falcons punched their ticket to the inaugural state dual tournament by defeating Palm Bay in the regional semis. They then knocked off rival Olympic Heights in the state quarters to reach the state final four. The falcons put up a valid fight and eventually dropped a heartbreaker to Riverdale. Please see story below.
The falcons finished the dual season this past weekend at the Gene Gorman Showcase duals at Charlotte high school. The falcons went 8-1 dropping a tough on to the host tarpons. The falcons final dual record for the season was an impressive 31-3. This ranks 2nd all-time in school history with least amount of losses in a season only behind the 2008-2009 team that went 24-0. This also marked the 4th time in program history for a team to reach 30 dual wins in a season.
The JV team will be in action again on February 9 & 10 at the JV State tournament in Kissimmee. The varsity will compete that same weekend in Jupiter at the John Raich Memorial tournament.

- 2/16 Districts – Jensen Beach high school
- 2/23 & 24 Regionals – Jensen Beach high school
- 3/2 & 3/2 FHSAA State tournament – Silver Spurs Arena (Kissimmee)
