Northwood Little League players returned to class Monday morning.
Northwood is the first South Carolina team since 1950 to compete in the Little League World Series. They made it to the second round before being eliminated by Kentucky.
The players attend three Greenville County Middle Schools, Riverside, Northwood and Mauldin. All wore their Little League World Series jerseys to class on Monday.
They received a hero’s welcome with banners in car line and the cafeteria. The players were treated to free lunch and ice cream by sponsors and their school PTSA. The boys signed autographs and took photos with classmates during lunch time.
They thanked teachers and classmates for helping them stay up to date on their class work.
