The Eagles are the early favorites to dominate on the soccer field in 2014.
A former Greer High multi-sport standout is trying his luck at Spartanburg Day School, where he was recently named track and field coach.
Wenzler “Dante” Butler, 30, comes to the private school from Greenville High, where he served as the school’s track and field coach from 2011 to 2013.
For the second consecutive year, Anderson senior guard Chandler Hash, a former Greer High standout, was named to the Capital One Academic All-District III men’s basketball first team for NCAA Division II.
Hash is the reigning South Atlantic Conference Scholar-Athlete for men’s basketball and carries a 3.51 GPA, majoring in nursing.
The postseason awards keep coming for Byrnes senior quarterback Shuler Bentley.
Bentley was recently named to the 2014 Parade All-American honorable mention team, joining former Byrnes standouts Willy Korn and Marcus Lattimore, who were also recognized as Parade All-Americans.
Our office enjoyed a good laugh early last week pondering the thought of snow in Greer (something I didn’t even think was possible).
I thought it was ridiculous Gov. Nikki Haley ordered a “state of emergency,” and I certainly didn’t see the need for schools to close early.
The Warriors are still searching for their first win of 2014 after losses to Boiling Springs and Wade Hampton last week.
Riverside is currently sitting on a 1-8 region record with just a few games remaining on the regular season schedule.
Several attempts at a Lady Rebels comeback were stifled by Gaffney Friday night, as Byrnes dropped a 66-56 contest to its rival.
Byrnes trailed by a double-digit margin for most of the game. The Lady Rebels cut the Gaffney lead to four twice, but were unable to get over the hump.
Courtney Robinson’s strong scoring night helped Blue Ridge cruise past Greenville last week.
The junior, who eclipsed 1,000 career points earlier this season, dropped 31 points and brought in 17 rebounds, earning The Greer Citizen and Clock/Clock Express’ Player of the Week honors.
Greer football awards ceremony is Monday

I wasn’t going to write about Richard Sherman.
I didn’t think he deserved all the attention he attracted after his postgame rant in the NFC Championship. In my opinion, he said what most every passionate and competitive athlete would say if you stick a microphone in their face right after a huge win.
