Kingfishers gathered at Hog Heaven on Sunday, May 17, to enjoy plates of barbecue, fried chicken and sides and to celebrate the sports teams of 2014-2015. Coach Gates coached track, volleyball, girls and boys basketball, boys soccer, and sailing while Mr. Patrick coached tennis. “There are no bench sitters in our sports program,” Coach Gates said. He also told the TGS families that the accreditation team for SCISA was very impressed that we had a a soccer team–they then found out we had six other sports besides! Sarah Exum was commended for her Regional All-Star award and Sarah Green for being the first TGS athlete to place in a SCISA competition (Track, 2014). All the athletes received awesome TGS caps, and MVP and Coach’s Award were given, respectively, to: Volleyball: Lizzy Culliton/Lochlyn Hejl; Girls Basketball: Savanna Morris/Elizabeth Exum; Boys Basketball: Grayson Sossamon/Josh Haas; Boys Soccer: Nathan Gates/Joe Skerman; Sailing: Savanna Morris/Isabella Neubauer; Tennis: Douglas DeVito/Lochlyn Hejl. Congratulations to all the players!
Thank you to the PTO’s Lisa Haas and Rhonda Morris,who took the lead in organizing this great event and getting together the hats and awards, and to Hog Heaven owner Greg Eaddy and his wonderful and accommodating staff! What a great close to a fun and challenging year!
