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.
