The new look Warriors got a small glimpse of what this season may hold last week during the team’s first scrimmage against Easley.
The Blue Ridge Tigers strapped on the pads for this fall, last Friday night, but the occasion was nearly spoiled by rain.
The Tigers hosted Chesnee in a scrimmage that lasted nearly an hour and, despite the rain, head coach Shane Clark said his team was able to get in a little bit of work.
Recovering from an early spin after contact with Kyle Busch’s Toyota, Marcos Ambrose held off Busch in the closing laps of last Saturday’s Zippo 200 at the Glen to win the series-best fifth road course race of his Nationwide Series career.
In a battle between two drivers with everything on the line, AJ Allmendinger held off Marcos Ambrose in breathtaking fashion to win last Sunday’s Cheez-It 355 at the Glen and claim an almost certain spot in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.

What were the top moments in sports history?
Memorial softball tournament Aug. 23-24
The Greer High Police Department will play host to the annual Upstate South Carolina Law Enforcement Memorial Softball Tournament from Aug. 23-24.
Yes, Virginia. Christmas does come in July--sometimes. At Greer High School, head football coach Will Young found an unexpected gift in his stocking when a defensive lineman transferred in to start pre-season football practice last week.
Blue Ridge will host its first scrimmage Friday morning against Chesnee, but the Tigers still have plenty of work to do beforehand.
Head coach Shane Clark said his team wasted no time getting back into the swing of things Monday as August practices kicked off.
Kickoff against Northwestern is still more than two weeks away, but the Byrnes football team is already game planning for revenge.
The Rebels picked up their only regular season loss to the Trojans in 2013, falling 42-35. Monday morning, Byrnes, led by new coach Brian Lane, took to the field for the team’s first full week of practice.
This is the most athletically gifted team Eastside football coach Jeff Thomason said he has put on the field in the last four years.
The Eagles hope to show off some of that ability during summer practices, which got underway this week.
