The Atlantic School Boys Basketball team hosted Pine Ridge on January 18, 2021 in Port Orange, FL. The Atlantic Sharks dominated the first half, and at halftime led the game 31-23. But the Pine Ridge Panthers rallied behind the play of senior Guard Yavier Saez-Rivera (#3) who had 15 points, senior guard Elijah Zuniga (#0) who added 13 points, and junior forward Jaylen Cheeks (#12) who contributed 12 more.
George Butts, one of the most successful head coaches in Florida high school girls basketball history, plans to make the 2020-21 season his last at Atlantic.
Butts told The News-Journal he will step down after 25 seasons in charge of the Sharks. He reached the 500-win milestone earlier this year, joining a group of fewer than 20 coaches in state history, according to records compiled by the Orlando Sentinel.
