The Byrnes softball team is continuing to dominate on the diamond, knocking off Gaffney for a second time last week.

With the win, the Rebels are now 15-3 on the year.

“I was happy with how we played,” Byrnes coach Brandi Aiken said. “Last time we only won 3-0 so I was happy to see us put up a few more runs.”

The Byrnes soccer team earned a much-needed win over Woodruff Monday night, improving to 5-7 on the year.

The Byrnes boys’ soccer team has worked its way back from a rough start, earning a 5-2 win over Woodruff after an 0-3 week before spring break.

Byrnes coach Paul Hilderbrand said his team has not had an easy road, playing in what he believes to be one of the toughest regions in the state.
