Wade Hampton’s Glory in Sports
May 7, 2018
Wade Hampton High School is known by many as a basketball school. The basketball team has made the playoffs just about every year. They have been region champs just about every year, too. They won the state championship back in 2011 going 15-0, and this year they made it to the playoffs and upper-state. The ladies made it to state two years in a row. They were also region champs this year. Basketball has been the best sport at Wade Hampton so far.
The soccer teams have been consistently powerful. Wade Hampton has some extremely talented soccer players. The boys make playoffs pretty much every year. The girls have been doing the same. As of last week, they made it to playoffs, but unfortunately lost in a penalty kick round.
The baseball team has had their up and downs, but this year they pulled it together and started winning games. The softball team is really good, making multiple playoff runs. The girls lacrosse team has been exceptional this year; they won their first game in two years. The golf team has been doing great, with multiple players qualifying for upper-state.
In Wade Hampton’s gym, there are banners with the years to show that the team played really good. Some of the banners date back to before 1990. As of today, basketball has the most years on the banners, both boys and girls. Other schools do not have banners for their sports or they may only have one or two years with winning seasons. Wade Hampton has multiple for every sport. Also, the Wade Hampton trophy case pretty much takes up an entire hallway. Every student should be proud of that. Wade Hampton is home to many great teams, and next year will undoubtedly bring more wins to add to the long list.
