Tigers refocus during summer

The Blue Ridge girls’ basketball team did not see the deep playoff run it had hoped for last season, but with a new season comes new life.

The Lady Tigers wrapped up summer sessions in June and head coach Byron Hardy said the team is in good shape so far, despite losing a couple of key seniors.

The Classics Eagles (pictured in white) took home the championship in the under-16 division, defeating the Lady Nomad last Sunday afternoon at the MESA Soccer Complex in Greer.

Teams claim championships

Champions were crowned last Thursday at the 2014 US Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup at the MESA Soccer Complex in Greer.

The four-day event featured 40 US Youth Soccer boys and girls teams in the under-13 through under-17 age groups that earned their way to the cup through success in their respective regional matches.

Byrnes went 13-1, keeping the Palmetto State Showdown title in Duncan last weekend.

Rebels finish tourney on top

The Rebels were not going to be denied on their home field last weekend, winning the Palmetto State Showdown 7-on-7 tournament handily.

Byrnes went 13-1 in the two-day stretch, losing its only game to Woodruff in pool play. The tournament featured teams from as far away as New Jersey.
