The Bethesda Blazers’ track and field team celebrated their state championship victory during a ring ceremony held at Bethesda Academy.
Thirteen state championship rings were presented to the athletes on the 2018-2019 team which won the state honor in the South Carolina Independent School Association Class A/ AA competition at the end of last school year. Several private schools along the South Carolina/Georgia border, including Bethesda Academy, are members of SCISA.
Two graduated seniors from the team returned to their alma mater to accept their rings. Five coaches led by the athletic director Antwain Turner watched as the seniors along with the rest of the track and field team were honored.
“I can’t express how proud of these young men I am,” said head track coach Clevan Thompson. “It’s an honor to hold this title and to coach these outstanding athletes. I’ve watched this team make tremendous strides physically and personally to get to this point, and I can’t think of a more deserving team.”
