Greer, Wade Hampton, Greenville, and Riverside high school tennis teams practiced together this week. Current and prospective members of the four teams played between 6 – 8 p.m. Monday through Wednesday.
Planned practices today and Friday were cancelled because the heat index was expected to be too high. A school trainer advised coaches the heat would be too severe to hold practices.
The Greater Greer Education Foundation (GGEF) has awarded scholarships to 13 Greer area graduates. At a news conference Tuesday at the Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce, Foundation Chairman Margaret Burch presented certificates to the students.
The scholarships are made possible by funds from the September 2011 Education Gala and local sponsorships.
