It was banner year for a trio of Columbia County schools during the fall sports season.

In softball it was the Greenbrier Middle School “A” team winning the 2013 Columbia County middle school softball championship with a 10-0 record.

Previewing the success the varsity team would have, the Greenbrier High School JV volleyball team won the Columbia County championship the weekend of Sept. 28.

In football, it was Grovetown Middle School that made it through the season without a blemish, going 7-0.

“Any time you go undefeated that’s pretty good, I reckon,” said head coach Dan Sneeringer, who has been the Grovetown coach since 2002.

The achievement was a unique one as it was the first time schools were allowed to play seven games instead of six, having to skip one opponent in previous years.

Sneeringer said they tried to focus on keeping their linemen fresh, having a separate set for both offense and defense.

Defense was a strong suit for the team and running back Deangelo Durham was a difference-maker.

“I think that’s one of the keys to any middle school success; you have to have a decent running back, being that 85 to 90 percent of what you do is run the ball,” Sneeringer said.
