Wofford battles man’s toughest challenge

July 13, 2011

Can you swim 1.2 miles? Ever tried biking 56-miles and then followed that with a half marathon?

For some it sounds like a grueling challenge. After all, it’s only half of an iron-man competition.

It may sound unbearable, but for one local it’s just one more challenge he wants to conquer.

It’s all about having fun for West Point

July 12, 2011

The West Point Lady Wave softball team followed up their recent success last spring with a good summer on the diamond. Head coach Brian Sellers said the main issue the team focused on over the last few months was making sure the girls got plenty of playing time.
“The biggest thing for us was the experience,” he said. “During the JV games your trying to get everybody in. You might get one at bat or half an inning in because your trying to get 15 players in the game over the last two or three innings. So biggest thing was the repetitions to get better for next year.”
