I never thought there would be another P-W Pirate here. Don't forget about the recent track titles.
OT: What High School did you go to? And how were they in Sports?
Your avatar is strikingly appropriate. Nice choice.
I think the track titles were after my time, but thanks for adding. I guess it helps to finally have a track for the team to train on.
When did you matriculate your way through? I left for UM in 97.
so currently I'm a proud U-M sophomore.
This year there is a P-W hurdler/sprinter that is the best at the 110 hurdles in the Lansing area and is being recruited to come here for track...shocking, I know.
That cheer is famous-ish, there are people from schools that have no reason to recognize it, but they do.
"Look, our helmets [had] wings"
I'm still a little bitter that they changed from the UM football uniforms and helmets to the bastardized version of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers uniforms/helmets. I guess it makes sense seeing that we're the Pirates and all, but still.
Thanks for the info on the track athlete. Looks like we're building that athletic pipeline after all.
Good luck with school. To this day, one of the best 4-6 year stretches of my life (Good thing my wife doesn't read this blog)!
Laingsburg alum and fellow CMAC alum here... Going to the Bucs helmets was real bad and your football field always smells of cow shit. Cant say we had much success against you guys in football when I played 01-03 but our schools have developed a bit of a rivalry in basketball over the past 15 years or so that is fun to watch. Glad to see some CMAC guys on here tho.
Denver has the thin air, Oregon has the crowned field, PW has the cow shit smell. What can I say? It seems to work though.
I have noticed the nice rivalry with the Burg in BBall. Although, unless I'm way out of the loop which is entirely possible, our main rival in all sports is still Fowler. I guess you can be our MSU to Folwer's OSU in basketball at least.
CMAC - a collection of small-ish schools, but tough as nails all. Can't believe the conference spans from Saranac to Dansville now, but whatever. I don't have to ride the buses.
Greenwood High School in Greenwood, South Carolina for my first two years and now the Governor's School (SM) for my junior and senior years
A local powerhouse in football the last ten years; three state titles, the last one in '06. Basketball and Baseball were okay. Winning seasons and all that, but not particularly spectacular. The soccer team was decent; I played keeper for the JV team my freshman and sophmore years, and we barely had a .500 record those years.
Notable Alums, particularly football players:
Kelcy Quarles, USC defensive tackle
Sam Montgomery, LSU defensive end
And sadly, Quarterback of the Appalachian State Mountaineers back in '07, Armanti Edwards.
terrible at football, terrible at basketball, really good at cross country when i was there, and apparently our band was pretty impressive.
embarrassing for the football stands to empty after the halftime show though.
Hemlock High School (1991).
We were pretty good at hoops and baseball. State semi-finals in baseball my senior year (class c?).
Football not so much. Seemed like we could beat the teams we were supposed to lose to and lose to the teams we were supposed to beat.
