With just one week of region play left on the schedule, the Eastside baseball team is using its final few games to prepare for postseason play.
With just three games remaining on the regular season schedule, Riverside baseball coach Travis Pitman said his team has put itself in prime position to make a deep playoff run.
The Warriors currently rank second in the region standings, only trailing Mauldin with games against Wade Hampton and Dorman remaining.
Runners will file into downtown Greer this Saturday for the annual Earth Day Run, presented by the Greenville Track Club, which features two courses.
Participants will have the opportunity to navigate Greer’s streets in either the half marathon or the 5K, according to former Greenville Track Club President Michael Burchett.
