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 think it would be awesome if you could get Morgan Freeman's voice on a GPS. It would be like he's narrating your travels
