Mark Smith

NGU adds Smith

Mark Smith has taken over as head coach of the men’s and women’s tennis teams at North Greenville University.

Smith has been the director of tennis at Pebble Creek Country Club in Taylors for the past eight years.

The 2016 Yellow Jackets have a lot to live up to, having gone undefeated in the regular season in back-to-back years. Greer will take on Westside in the season opener on Aug. 19.

Diving in

August practice is underway and there’s less time for area high school football teams to prepare than ever.

Riverside, Eastside, Byrnes, Blue Ridge and Greer each play during Week 0, which kicks off on Aug. 19.

On Monday, the teams emerged from “dead week” to begin full practices.

Greer lineman run drills during the team’s first official practice last Friday morning.

It’s Christmas in August for Coach Will Young and his Greer High football coaching staff. They are hoping for a pleasant surprise when the wraps come off the 2016 Yellow Jackets on Friday in a 6 p.m. scrimmage with Gaffney at Dooley Field.

Breaking down the realignment

Football fans may not notice a huge difference under the lights on Friday nights, but the South Carolina High School League has taken on a new look entering the year.

Regions have been realigned and a new classification has been added, causing schedules to look a little different this fall.
