Corey Struss

NGU names Struss coach

Corey Struss will be North Greenville’s first mens’ lacrosse coach, leaving Ohio Valley University to join the Crusaders’ new program.

North Greenville added mens’ lacrosse to the varsity sports lineup in June.

Time for a shot clock

For a few brief moments Friday night, my vision faded to black and white. I was transported back to a time with no three-point line. Back to a time where dunks didn’t exist and basketball shorts were as short as you could get them.

Area players named

Local high school football standouts were selected to all-region teams last week, putting the finishing touches on what was a successful season for several teams.

Blue Ridge coach Shane Clark said the honor is something not many players accomplish during their high school careers.

Player of the Year candidates

Five area football players have separated themselves from the pack, securing spots as finalists for this season’s Player of the Year award.

Respective coaches have nominated Chris Pittman (Blue Ridge), Mario Funes (Riverside), Shaedon Meadors (Byrnes), Michael Fernandez (Eastside) and Quez Nesbitt (Greer).

Anderson University senior Chandler Hash is averaging more than 25 ponts per game so far this season.

Hash putting up huge numbers

Former Greer High standout Chandler Hash is off to a monstrous start to his senior season at Anderson University.

The guard led the team in scoring in seven of his first eight games this season, averaging more than 25 points. Hash scored a career-high 42 points in a win over GRU Augusta earlier this season.

Two area players in Shrine Bowl

Two area football players will represent South Carolina this Saturday in the 77th Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas.

The contest will take place at Gibbs Stadium in Spartanburg, with kickoff set for 1 p.m.
From the Greer area will be Byrnes receiver Shaedon Meaders and Byrnes offensive lineman Benjamin Clark.
