It’s the end of the year, and as sports fans we know what that means: It’s time to take a look back at the great plays and the players that made them, lest we forget. This week we profile one of the best football players from 2015.

Cam Newton

Eastside topped Greer in dramatic fashion hitting a last second shot to seal the win in overtime. The Lady Eagles also beat Chapman last week, remaining perfect in the region.

Lady Eagles knock off Greer in OT

The Eastside girls basketball team proved its toughness last week, edging the Lady Jackets during a 53-51 overtime thriller in Greer.

Greer had a chance to win late in the extra period, but Eastside freshman Emily Brown rebounded a missed free throw and scored on the other end to give her team the go-ahead bucket as time expired.

Lady Rebels best Laurens, Mauldin

The Lady Rebels (4-4, 1-1) picked up key wins over Laurens (50-48) and Mauldin (34-29) last week, before falling to falling to Spartanburg, 53-36.

The Byrnes girls basketball team is now .500 in region action heading into the break, and head coach Stacey Parris is feeling good about her team.
