We have a special edition for this weeks “GCS Player of the Week”, celebrating one of the most dominant teams in the state of South Carolina as they brought home their 3rdstraight state championship!
Riverside Warriors Girls Cross Country, a team ranked amongst the nations best, brought home their 3rd consecutive Class AAAA Girls Cross Country State Championship.
