With their victory on Tuesday night (Jan. 21), the 2019-20 SSES girls basketball team is now in the record book as the winningest team in school history. The Falcons routed local rival Bradenton Christian, 60-31, at the Panthers’ gym to record their 17th victory of the season, eclipsing the 1983-84 and 1984-85 teams, which each won 16 games. With at least five games remaining, the Falcons are poised to set an incredible new standard for Saint Stephen’s girls basketball under first-year Head Coach David Gaulman. After finishing as district runner-up in each of the past three seasons, the Falcons (17-3) have their sights set on winning their first district championship since 1984 and advancing deep into the postseason. Last year’s team captured the school’s first-ever regional playoff victory, upsetting Naples First Baptist Academy before falling in the regional final.
