Here's to a new start

Hi readers!

If you haven’t noticed, there’s been a little bit of a change around here.

A few weeks ago, I was offered a chance to be an editor/sports reporter here, and it was an opportunity I would be a fool to pass by.

Greer trying to bounce back

The Greer boys’ basketball team suffered two early losses this season, but coach Jeff Neely said he believes his team will get better with experience.

The Yellow Jackets picked up losses to Dorman and Wren during a preseason tournament, before earning their first win over Spartanburg Christian Academy.

The Rebels got several players back earlier than expected after the football team lost to Dutch Fork on Friday. Byrnes coach Layne Fowler said this is the most athletic team he has coached in four years.

Byrnes aiming for playoffs

The Byrnes boy’s basketball team wants to host a playoff game in 2014, but knows it will have to go through a tough region schedule to do so.

Byrnes coach Layne Fowler saw his team jump out to a 2-1 start during a preseason tournament last week, and he said he saw some good things from his athletic team.

Lady Rebels kill injury bug

The Byrnes girl’s basketball team has had plenty of trouble staying healthy in the past.

Rebel coach Stacey Parris said her team has had six knee injuries in four years and has had to take a different approach to the offseason as a result.

The Warriors earned victories over Powdersville and Belton-Honea Path last week.

Warriors boast 2-1 start

The Riverside boys’ basketball team is off to a 2-1 start after securing wins over Belton-Honea Path and Powdersville last week.

The Warriors fell to St. Joes during a preseason tournament, but Riverside coach Greg Miller said his team has done exactly what it needed to thus far.
