After two losses to Mt. Hebron and Howard a week ago, the Gators appeared to be going in the wrong direction. But the team had a heartfelt talk about the Howard loss and turned things around with three wins this week.

“Those losses were tough but we came back together as a team,” Sullivan said. “They were able to hold themselves accountable and realize that we’re still pursuing a county championship.”
