Congrats to the Newberry High Boys Team
 
After winning the last 3 Upper State Championships, they won the 2A State Championship with a 77-47 win over Lake Marion yesterday at the CLA. First State Championship for Newberry since the baseball team won it all in 1981, and it was a long time coming.

I had the opportunity to coach the seniors on this years team when they were in 7th grade, and coached 11 of the 15 on the roster at some point. It has been a up and down ride watching them since then. From the heartbreak of losing 2 state championship games in a row, and losing football games in overtime and by 1 point to end their seasons, to watching them grow into great young men and celebrating with them at the school last night when they got back. It was great to see them pull back in with the escort from police cars and fire trucks. Those 9 seniors have accomplished a lot in their athletic and academic careers and I know they will all do great things in the future.

I worked on the event staff for the SCHSL championships.......Newberry took over in that game after being down 11-7, if I am not mistaken. I could tell the guys NHS wanted that Championship, and the suite behind my position was full of a bunch of Newberry fans who jawed and cheered the entire game.

I know him, I don't know him that well because I coached football while I was there and he was basketball, but I do know him.

That championship is a long time coming. Newberry fans travel and support the team no matter what, but it was good to finally win 1.

I don't know him either, but I know his wife well. She was a sorority sister of mine at Winthrop.
