Boys’ Soccer (article submitted by Coach Shearer)
Congratulations to the 2014 Langston Boys’ Soccer Team!! The Chargers finished off a historic season by bringing home the program’s FIRST Championship! After playing on short notice against Spartanburg Day to determine tournament seeding and defeating their opponent, Langston took on Bob Jones in the Semi Final game and beat the long- time nemesis 2-1 through strong play in the back and a willingness by players to step up and fill roles that they were not comfortable with or used to. In the Championship game, the Chargers gave Hampton Park a taste of their own medicine by staring down the historic rival and outplaying, outhustling and overpowering them for a 2-0 victory. The scoring came from Krys Downey-Simms who delivered the first blow in the second half of a tense, hard fought game. Colton Rouse delivered the final hammer blow with time running out on a thrilling high lofted goal from his dangerous left side to give YOUR Chargers a well-deserved Championship Title. This will always belong to our school, our program and our players. Congratulations and enjoy!

Cross Country
The inaugural season for Cross Country in the Carolina Middle School Conference came to a close this week with the CMSC Championships. The meet was held at St. Joseph High School’s course in Greenville, with the Langston boys and girls participating. The girls’ team finished first, capping off a great season. Sarah Stein finished first overall, and was awarded All-Conference honors. Caroline Earle finished third overall and was also selected to the All-Conference team. The boys’ team placed second, barely behind Mt. Zion Christian School. For their efforts, Riley Thome, John Arndt, and Blake Sorrell were awarded All-Conference honors. Apart from an optional trail run in October, the cross country season is over for this year. With several key runners moving on to high school next year, the team will be looking for runners to fill some key roles next season. Look for more information on cross country towards the end of the year. It takes a lot of time and effort to start a new team, thank you to our coach, Steve Calvert, for volunteering your time, as well as Bordin McKowen for being our assistant coach.

Soccer
Your Langston Chargers finished their regular season with a 2-1 loss to perennial rival Hampton Park. The final scoreboard indicated a loss but the game itself was far from it. The Chargers outplayed their opponent in every aspect of the game leaving Hampton Park breathless and looking for a way out. Ultimately, the final whistle blew and the team was left with the losing tally but hungry for more. On Thursday the first round of the Conference Tournament began with a match against Spartanburg Day. This team has proven to be a bitter rival and each game is a pitched battle. The game was dictated by the stingy play of the Four Horsemen in the defensive backfield leaving the opponent little opportunity to strike and score. This, combined with timely and controlling midfield play by Colton Rouse, proved to be more than the Griffins could overcome. The Chargers broke through on three occasions and put away their opponent to secure their spot in the Semi Final game against Bob Jones on Thursday, October 9 at 4 o’clock at Shannon Forest. Hope to see you there to cheer on YOUR Langston Chargers soccer team.
Congratulations to Blake Latta for being named to the CMSC All Conference team.

Volleyball
The Lady Chargers ended their season on Thursday with a loss to Spartanburg Day School in the first round of the CMSC Tournament. The girls have struggled with some difficult losses throughout the season, but have really come together as a team. This has been a rebuilding year and we look forward to coming back strong next year. Special thanks to Stephanie Ward and her 4 years of coaching our volleyball team. Also, thanks go out to our Assistant Coaches, Alesha Oppatt and Ryan Hammond.
Congratulations to McKenzie Hartley for being named to the CMSC All Conference team.

Fall Break…We will not have school next Thursday or Friday. Enjoy the break.

Cross Country – article submitted by June Deas
Congratulations to Langston’s 2014 Cross Country Team! Mt. Zion was host to the inaugural Cross Country season and The Charges’ hard work really paid off. The boys finished 2nd and the girls 1st overall! I am so proud of all the students for the effort they have put in during practices, extra runs on their own, and of course at the meet on Tuesday. Of course I was impressed by their running, but aside from that, I am so proud of the way our students showed enormous sportsmanship by not only cheering on their own teammates, but encouraging runners from other teams. Watching our boys run in with the last runner during the boy’s race was a great reflection of our students and Langston, as we encourage our young people to be leaders in their community and compassionate toward others. Thank you to Steve Calvert for your leadership in shaping this team!

Soccer – article submitted by Coach Shaun Shearer
Your Langston Chargers defended their first home field game by defeating Spartanburg Prep 6-0. Goals came from all sides as Langston’s younger players showed what the future will hold for our program. On Thursday, the Chargers were defeated by Bob Jones Academy by a score of 4-1. The team made great strides against an adversary that has historically beaten them by large margins. The game was highlighted by balanced play that dominated the Bob Jones squad and a dazzling bicycle kick score by Krys Downey-Simms from an aerial cross off of a corner kick by Gavin Shearer. Unfortunately, Bob Jones was able to capitalize on a few more chances and gave the Chargers the loss. The Chargers are growing stronger by the match. Come support your team next week at Rocky Creek as we take on Shannon Forest on Monday, and on Thursday at Rocky Creek when we face Spartanburg Day. Both games are free to students and begin at 4:00.

This week our team played Easley Home School at home, it was a close game, but we were defeated 2-0. The scores were 21-25 and 20-25. Thank you to all the students who came out to cheer us on! On Thursday, we faced Bob Jones Academy, last year’s Champions. It was a tough game, we were again defeated by 2-0. The scores were 14-25 and 17-25.

Soccer (article submitted by Coach Shaun Shearer)
Great things are happening with YOUR Langston Chargers boys’ soccer team. After going to the Championship at the Soccer Jamboree and losing in a tough contest to finish the best in school history, the team has gone on to collect two solid away game wins. The Chargers defeated a growing Camperdown Academy team 9-0 with 8 goals being scored by 8 different players. A true display of team effort. Next up was a familiar rival in Spartanburg Day. Langston used their hustle to the ball and effective passing to net a 3-0 victory. This was bolstered by strong leadership from our back line to set the tone of the game with a stingy performance that gave us the opportunity to move the ball forward and score. Finally, the team lost a scrappy game to another conference rival in Mitchell Road Christian Academy 1-0. MRCA was motivated by being handed a loss by the Chargers early in the season at the Soccer Jamboree. This battle will go back and forth which will make for the promise of future exciting match ups. A fantastic collective effort and the promise of great things to come from YOUR Langston Chargers. Next week the Chargers have their first home game on Tuesday, Sept. 9, at 4:30 at Pittman Park. Plan to be there!

A Note From The Langston Foundation:

I would like to thank all those parents who have initiated a monthly or annual donation during this first month back to school! It is so impressive to see the level of support from our parents, year after year and child after child. Your contribution will help to offset the funding shortfall that charter schools experience as compared to other public middle schools. It also helps us make necessary improvements like paving our gravel parking lot, sodding a playing field, replacing old picnic tables, and repurposing the school kitchen for our Take Out Lunch program.

Your help is making all the difference and I encourage all parents to do what you can to help make this the Langston Foundation’s BEST year ever as the school celebrates its 10th anniversary!
