Multiple Teams · Swansea Falls to RNE, 35-21


Swansea was up 21-20 in the fourth quarter, but Richland Northeast outscored the Tigers 14-0 in the final seven minutes and held off any hopes of a comeback to claim a 35-21 victory on Friday night at Swansea.

The Tigers (1-1) jumped out to a 6-0 lead after senior running back Kendall Brooks scored with 5:02 to go in the first quarter. The Cavs answered on the other end as Twontae Wallace’s 13-yard touchdown run put RNE on top 7-6 at the end of the first quarter.

The Tigers kept their momentum going into the second quarter as junior quarterback Keenan Coats connected with sophomore wide receiver Michael Jones for an 11-yard pass for a touchdown. Brooks came up big for Swansea as he got the two-point conversion to give the Tigers a 14-7 lead with under a minute to go before halftime. The defense held tough for Swansea as they kept RNE scoreless in the second quarter.

RNE tied the game 14-14 in the third quarter. Numerous penalties got the best of both teams during the fourth quarter. Swansea regained the lead with seven minutes left in the game to make the score 21-20, but the Cavs scored 14 unanswered points to close out the game and seal the win.

Up next for the Tigers is a trip to South Aiken High School on Friday. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. Come out and support your Tigers!

Junior quarterback Keenan Coats led the Swansea Tigers to a 27-13 win over Battery Creek last Friday in the season opener in Beaufort, S.C. For the game, Coats had 182 total passing yards with two touchdowns. He also ran for 66 yards total, which included another score for the Tigers.

Battery Creek took a 6-0 lead after missing a two-point conversion with 10:57 left in the first quarter. Swansea would score twice as linebacker Greg Williams put the Tigers in scoring position after he intercepted the ball and ran it 28 yards to give Swansea possession at the Dolphins’ 9-yard line. The Tigers led 13-6 after a 4-yard touchdown by senior running back Kendall Brooks.

Swansea continued to apply pressure on Battery Creek as Coats ran the ball 20 yards for another touchdown to put the Tigers up 20-6. The Dolphins would not recover, but were able to get on the board again at the 1:12 mark in the fourth quarter to make the final score 27-13.

As a team, Swansea rushed 23 times for a total of 150 yards, 84 of which came on three carries. Defensively, the Tigers held Battery Creek to six plays that went for 10 yards or more. The Dolphins never had a play resulting in 20 yards or more.

Multiple Teams · Swansea, Battery Creek Set to Face-off in Season Opener


Swansea High School opens the 2017 football season on the road on Friday as the Tigers travel to Beaufort, S.C., to take-on Battery Creek High School. Swansea defeated the Dolphins last year, 46-27 at Swansea. 

Tigers’ head coach Greg Wright enters his second season as the leader of this young and talented team. Last season, Wright led his team to a 3-8 overall record that included a trip to the 2016 South Carolina High School League Class 3A Playoffs. There, Swansea suffered a 56-6 loss to Bluffton High School. 

Battery Creek finds itself with a new head coach this season as Walter Wilson takes over the reins to guide this team. The Dolphins are coming off of a 2-9 season, which also included a berth in the Class 3A playoffs where Battery Creek was upended by Brookland-Cayce in the opening round, 42-7. 

Both teams are looking to set the tone for their season on Friday. Swansea hopes to use the momentum from their 7-6 victory over Keenan High School in the Joe Tuberville Jamboree last Friday as a stepping stone for what is to come this season. 

Swansea and Battery Creek are set to kickoff at 7:30 p.m.. Come out and support your Tigers.

Tigers News · Eight Great Fundraising Ideas for Booster Clubs – Presented by VNN


New jerseys, gear, entry fees, retreats – the wish list of opportunities to improve your teams is long, and often, the ways to finance them are short. While there’s no perfect one-size-fits-all fundraiser for every community, good inspiration is the first step.

Whether its your booster club, team, or program looking to raise funds and increase school spirit, here’s a few of our favorite ideas that we’ve seen across the network:

Jail-N-Bail – DeSoto High School (KS)

$10 files a warrant to arrest members of the community with phony allegations like “impersonating a golfer,” “failure to yield at the end of a sentence,” and “wearing pants way too high.” Once served with the warrant for their ‘arrest,’ the jailbirds are placed in a jail cell, a mug shot is taken, and they must call family/friends to raise bail.

Cheerleading Day – Pickens High School (SC)

CheerDay

Blue Flame cheerleaders dedicated their time to teach younger members of the community motion drills, jump technique, stunting fundamentals and sideline spirit in a day camp for a donation to the program. The campers, led by the PHS cheerleaders, performed a showcase at the conclusion of camp.

Lap-a-Thon – Gilmer High School (GA)

Racing

Anyone who has ever ran distance before knows that the hardest part isn’t necessarily the physical aspect, but the mental component of the sport, and in true Cross Country fashion, the Bobcats’ ‘hardest fundraiser,’ forces participants to run for an hour and a half around the track without stopping, with the main goal of seeing who can run the most laps consecutively in that time. Each lap ran accumulates money from sponsors, and all proceeds go towards funding the team.

Lift-A-Thon – Avon Lake (OH)

Earlier this Summer, the Shoremen football team held their 26th annual lift-a-thon, where players perform their max in 4 lifts, including the squat, hang clean, bench press, and deadlift in front of a crowd. Donations could be made in a player’s name, or to the team generally. Whittier Christian (CA) has a similar event coming up, the Push-Up-a-Thon, and Gilmer.

3 v. 3 Soccer Tournament – Roy High School (UT)

In the warm up to the Utah Spring Season, the Roy Royals Boys Soccer team held a 3v3 soccer tournament. At $20 per player, it was billed as a tune up for the year’s games across all levels, with teams starting at age 6 through adult.

Home Run Derby – Desert Ridge High School (AZ)

HRDerby

To help assist a teammate with unforeseen medical costs, the Jaguars held a home run derby. Split into two age groups, “19 and over” and “18 and under,” participants paid $20 to hit baseballs out of the park. The total raised, including raffles, auctions, and concessions, was $2,671!

Top Golf – Lakota West High School (OH)

Instead of practicing their own sport, the Firebirds of Lakota West held a fundraiser at the local West Chester Top Golf branch. At $100 per golfer, the cost included heavy appetizers, soft drinks, and visits from Lakota West NFL alumns Jordan Hicks (Philadelphia Eagles) and Ryan Kelly (Indianapolis Colts).

Local Restaurant EventsErie (CO), Lowell (MI), Westonka (MN)

If there’s one thing everyone loves, it’s food. Several schools connected with local restaurants and held fundraisers there. Whether the deal was for a portion of the day’s earnings donated back to the school (Chipotle and Buffalo Wild Wings are good national candidates for this), an ‘all-you-can-eat’ Belgian Waffles special, or selling coupons, this idea is a simple turn-key way to start earning.
