GIBSONTON, Fla. -- For the East Bay boys basketball team there's been something missing from the gymnasium for much too long.

"We came in the gym and we looked at all the banners up here and we didn't see any basketball banners so we made it a mission to win that district title," said East Bay basketball coach Billy Teeden.
