Horry County Approves Lacrosse-The Game Marches On
MYRTLE BEACH AREA FINALLY GETS BREAK
The Horry County School Board, which had withheld funding and
sanctioning of all new sports for the last couple of years, voted,
recently, to sanction lacrosse effective in the 2015 season. Socastee
High School has fielded varsity teams for the last 5 years, before the
school boards moratorium. Carolina Forest which had been operating
on a club basis, the past two years, will now have varsity teams
competing for the state championship. It is expected that St. James
and Myrtle Beach High Schools will also join the fray this coming
season. This is very good news for Socastee and Waccmaw High
school, in nearby Georgetown County, as they will not have to travel
so far for games. This is exciting growth indeed.
Congrats to the Palmetto State's Very Own Limestone Saints on their NCAA Division II National Championship! Way to go Saints!
A special congratualations goes out to Clay Farr and Anthony Quiles, both South Carolina high school alums who were members of this team. Also, we'd be remiss to not honor one of our Board members, Mike Cerino, on being Limestone's AD. Way to go!

RET THOMAS SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD WINNERS
|J. L. MANN
ABOUT THE RET THOMAS SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD
The Ret Thomas Sportsmanship Award is presented in memory of Ret Thomas, son of the first SCLL Commissioner. Ret was the first player on a sub-collegiate team in South Carolina to score a goal in interscholastic competition. He was a prime example of the toughest competitive spirit and the highest regard for others that one could find embodied in a human being. It was in Ret's memory that much of the initial effort toward the organization of high school and youth lacrosse in South Carolina began.
This recognition of good sportsmanship is given annually to the school whose lacrosse team, by the vote of the officials and umpires for the SCHSL, best exemplifies the highest standards of sportsmanship consistent with the tradition of lacrosse.
Congrats to the 2014 Ret Thomas Award Winners for Outstanding Sportsmanship
