Recently we shared Vince Lombardi’s famous “What it takes to be No. 1” speech in this space. Knowing bulletin boards and locker-room walls like I do, I’m betting you have enough space up there for another guy’s take on the subject of winning: John Wooden.

Malik Archibald and the Greer boys basketball team knocked off Irmo last week during a preseason matchup. The Yellow Jackets are off to a 1-2 start this season and will play Byrnes this Thursday on the road.

Rebels top Sumter in second round

The Rebels played a complete game last Friday night on the road, and now they are one step closer to their ultimate goal of a Class I-AAAA state title.

Byrnes topped Sumter (35-14) on the road in round two, securing a berth in the Upper State championship game where they will face Dorman.
