The Greer High School Booster Club is hosting its first golf fundraiser on Friday, May 2 at Greer Golf and Country Club.
Janson Brown can do it all. Well, he is going to try anyway.
The Byrnes senior became the first Rebel to receive an athletic scholarship to play lacrosse on the college level, but he will also try his hand at basketball while at Lincoln Memorial University (LMU).
Greer senior Austin Gay will continue his baseball career on the colligate diamond, signing with Erskine College on Tuesday morning.
With only three games remaining on the regular season schedule, Yellow Jacket coach Bob Massullo said Gay’s best baseball is yet to come.
Eastside slugger Zachary White will play his college baseball at Newberry College, signing a letter of intent during a ceremony on Monday.
The senior said the day marks a milestone he will not soon forget.
Eastside’s Charlton Clark has been a force for his team for the past four years, and he will aim to continue that success at Anderson University, signing to wrestle for the Trojans next fall.
Clark and his Eagle teammates are fresh off a state championship season, and the senior knows he has helped leave a legacy.
Byrnes senior Catherine Gillard will play her college hoops at Spartanburg Methodist College, singing a letter of intent at ceremony last week.
Byrnes girls’ basketball coach Stacey Parris said Gillard’s work ethic will be missed on the hardwood next season.
Byrnes senior Mary Kaitlyn Flynn will play tennis for Converse College next spring, signing a letter of intent last week.
Flynn said Converse was the obvious choice after weighing the decision.
Joining high school teammate Catherine Gillard, Byrnes senior Jasmine Booker recently signed a letter of intent to play basketball for Spartanburg Methodist College next season.
Golf enthusiasts and others in the Greer community are gearing up for the 17th annual Greer Community Ministries (GCM) golf fundraising event, which serves as a primary fundraiser for Meals on Wheels.
