Blue Flame Burns Devildogs on Senior Night
(10/23/2021 / TRHS Webmaster)
The Devildogs hosted Pickens on Friday night with Fall Sports seniors recognized before the game. The Blue Flame took advantage of Devildog turnovers recovering a bad snap and scoring with 8:42 left in the first quarter. They then scored on a pick six to lead 14-0 with 7:32 left in the quarter. The Devildogs answered with a TD later in the quarter. Pickens scored in the second quarter to lead 21-7. The Devildogs scored on their next series and then stopped Pickens on a 4th down and scored quickly to tie the game 21-21 just before halftime.
At halftime the TRYA teams and cheerleaders were recognized. Pickens controlled the ball much of the third quarter scoring with just over three minutes left in the quarter to lead 28-21. The Devildogs turned the ball over on downs at the Pickens 16 yard line late in the quarter. Pickens scored with 8:56 left in the game and led 35-21. Travelers Rest answered quickly to score and pull to within a touchdown. Pickens kicked a field goal with a little over a minute left in the game to lead 38-28. The Devildogs scored quickly but the extra point hit the upright and Pickens led 38-34. Pickens recovered the onside kick attempt but were unable to pick up a first down giving the Devildogs one last chance with 35 seconds left in the game. Pickens held on for the 38-34 win. The Devildogs are now 4-4 on the season and 1-2 in region play. They will travel to Easley to complete their regular season next Friday night.

(10/22/2021 / TRHS Staff)
On Thursday, 8 singers from TRHS chorus traveled to Wade Hampton HS to take part in the annual District Honor Choir event. The clinician, Dr. Walker from University of South Carolina, rehearsed the 140 singers throughout the morning and afternoon, working on 5 pieces, including the challenging 2021 All-State audition piece, "Hallelujah, Praise the Lord" by G.F. Handel. Other songs included Namibian folk song "O kaana kameme" and "On My Dreams" by Jocelyn Hagan based on the W.B. Yeats poem. The TRHS students enjoyed singing alongside and making friends with singers from 14 GCS high schools. The day's activities culminated in a performance for cameras only - a digital recording was made and will be uploaded to the district website and YouTube upon finalization. Congratulations to Isaiah Dodgens, Lillian Hough, Janna Martin, Alyvia Pakkala, Kelsie Plumblee, Mahaila Reynolds, Payton Rosselli, and Ciera Washington on a job well done!
