Intramural Basketball Concludes
The sixteen team tournament concluded this week with the following teams making it to the Final Four:Team USA (Dontay Donald), Team IB (Jeremiah Madden), Vanilla Ninjas (Buck Hosea), and Baseball Team (Mitchell Morosey). Team USA moved on to the Championship Game after a convincing win against the Baseball Team led by the outside shooting of Dontay Donald and Jordan Byers. On the other half of the bracket Buck Hosea and Jamie Pearce of the Vanilla Ninjas were nailing three pointers to knock out Team IB. In the championship game it was a close first half but Team USA jumped out to a 20 point lead and wound up winning by 9 points. Team USA was led by Dontay Donald, Jordan Byers, Shaquez McCarroll, Josh Whitney and Watson Graham. The team received intramural trophies and a chance to take on the faculty. In the Faculty-Intramural Championship game on Friday the Faculty team jumped out to an early 9 point lead due to the inside presence of Coach Fulton and the speed and quickness of Coach DeRoberts. The faculty team continued to pull away behind the 3 point shooting of Mr. Swinger and the awesome dunks of Coach Cuthbertson. The Faculty team was just too much for the Intramural champions as they won the game by 30 points. The Faculty Team was led by Coach Deschamps, Coach Mitchell, Coach Fulton, Coach DeRoberts, Mr. Long, Mr. Swinger, Coach Cuthbertson, Mr. Maddux, and Coach Evans. Special thanks to Tre Washington and Jame Elrod (clock operators), Calvin Wright (referee), and Chris Ware(photography). See more pictures in the Photo Gallery.
ACE Award Nominations Open
The ACE Awards (Advocates for Character and Education) was created by Greg Blatt, Founder and Executive Director of Coaches 4 Character. It is an annual award given to 66 male and female students from each of the 33 Greenville County middle and high schools. This award is designed to honor true “unsung heroes” who all too often are not recognized for their accomplishments. The selection process, established by Greenville County school counselors, focuses on identifying and selecting students who often go unnoticed for one reason or another, but have accomplished great things in their community, home, church or school. If you would like to nominate a Greenville County 8th or 12th grader, please complete and submit the nomination form found on the Ace Awards website (www.c4caceawards.com). All nominations must be submitted by January 30, 2015. An ACE Awards Advisory Committee at each school will choose finalists from among those nominated to complete an application for the ACE Award. One male and one female will be chosen from each middle and high school in Greenville County. All ACE award recipients will be honored at the ACE Awards ceremony in the spring.
