3/3 Record

We have lost 3 and we have won 3.  Tonight we play Goose Creek. They usually beat us pretty badly. They are usually one of the best teams in the district.  But who knows? Maybe there will be a miracle tonight. Our team is better this year than it was last year. It will probably…

Well, Well, Well..

Well we lost to James Island, but, win won our next game against Ft. Dorchester. Also, I was out for both of those games.  I have been out since my injury in the Hanahan game. I think I should be back for the West Ashely game next week. Looking forward to it. We have already…

Christmas/Graduation Gift

Last night my parents got me a new Jeep. It was supposed to be a graduation present, but I got it before Christmas. I am very excited. It is a manual six-speed. I had never driven a car with a stick shift before. I thought someone would drive it home for me, but instead, my…

We Won Against Hanahan

Victory Stratford won against Hanahan tonight, 43-33. However, Kat did not get to finish the game. She had to leave during the second quarter of the game to go to the ER. While going after a rebound she was elbowed, punched or maybe kicked in the face. Whatever it was nearly drove a tooth completely through her cheek….

Signing Ceremony

Kat had her signing ceremony a few weeks ago. As I mentioned in a previous post she is headed to Limestone College in Gaffney, SC next year. She will be receiving a softball scholarship and various other academic scholarships. The picture above was taken by Rob Gantt and posted on OurGazette.com. We are very proud of you…

Victory Over the Cobras of Cane Bay

Last night we beat Cane Bay. I don’t remember how they played last year, but they didn’t play that well last night. They weren’t handling the ball very well, and they seemed a little confused. They made a lot of errors. Fortunately, we were able to take advantage of those mistakes. We made quite a…

Hanahan

Well we lost our first game against Hanahan last night. We were doing okay at first and then we stopped sinking easy shots; layups, jump shots. At the half we were up by 2. When we came back we couldn’t seem to get it together. At times there seemed to be some confusion with the…

Finally Got My Championship Ring!

I finally got my championship ring for last year’s championship. We beat the Byrnes high school Rebels in the South Carolina AAAA Softball State Championship. We beat them 2 out of 3 games for the win. They won the first game, 10 – 3. Because of that they and their fans became over-confident. It was a…

Senior Year

Headed for Limestone College This is Kat’s senior year in high school. I can’t tell if she is excited about it or entirely bored with the idea. Anyway, her academic schedule this semester is more than I could handle when I was her age. Among her classes are calculus and psychology, neither of which she…

Last Game at Scenic City

Well, we beat Northwest Florida Riptide in our last game of the tournament. And other than MS Elite Prospect, we didn’t win against anyone else. The team is pretty new so it may take us a while to gel this year. There were times we played extremely well. We were more consistent defensively than when…

Scenic City Softball Tournament

Kat is playing with the SC Bandits again this summer. We are currently here in Chattanooga, Tenn.,  and playing in Ringgold, Ga. at the Scenic City tournament. Yesterday was the first day we played. We lost our first game to FCA-SC. They beat us 2-1. Then we played again at 9:00 pm and won against…
