Panthers 2022 Recap
The 2022 team holds the distiction of being the longest tenured SCP team ever. I was convinced to go out and watch a 12U team play one Sunday morning in Gastonia that needed a new affiliation An hour and half later I bought into making that team SCP. Scott Clemons who had coached in our program since his son Trevor played on the 2016 team took the team on and has led them in 4 years to a 168 - 43 - 5 Record (.789%) and six year 240 - 66 - 6 Record (.778%)
Parker Byrd; Trey Way and Braylen Hayes are the remaining members of that original team.
We added the Lincoln Co. "Crush" players Matt Heavner; Graham Smiley and Garrett Michel then the Rowan Co.
duo of Cam Padgett and Nathan Chrismon; snuck in a couple of urban players with Aiden Evans and Eli Jerzembeck
and that core of the SCP 2022s along with some strong additions went on a great six year run.
The team has proven over the years to be one of most successful SCP teams ever including winning the 2018 PG
WWBA World Freshman Championship in West Palm Beach. A program first and got us over that Runner Up hump.
