Lady Devildog Softball Team Defeats AC Flora in Playoffs

(5/14/2021 / TRHS Webmaster)

Softball Playoffs

The Lady Devildog softball team hosted AC Flora in the first game of the District 1 playoffs. Neely Hartin took advantage of an infielder bobbling a hard hit ball to beat out the throw and get on base. She stole second and advanced to third. Senior Courtney Ellison drove her in and the Lady Devildogs led 1-0 after one inning of play.

Flora tied the game scoring in the top of the third after the Lady Devildogs got a couple of quick outs. The Lady Falcons threatened in the top of the sixth inning with a lead off hit and getting two runners on with no outs. The Lady Devildogs escaped the inning without giving up a run. Neely Hartin led off the bottom of the sixth and slid just under a tag at second for a double. She then advanced to third. Her sister Ali Hartin drove her in to give the Lady Devildogs a 2-1 lead heading into the final inning.

Travelers Rest picked up a couple of quick outs but the Lady Falcons stayed alive on an error with the batter advancing to second. The next batter hit the ball to second and the Lady Devidogs made the routine play to hold on and advance to the winners bracket game on Monday night. They will host the winner of the Greer vs Catawba Ridge game that will be played tomorrow.

Important Spring Sports Information

(2/22/2021 / TRHS Athletic Dept.)

Hello Devildog Fans!

As winter sports are winding down, spring sports are about to start full force. All spring sports will start their games starting March 1st. Until that time any spring sports event/game at Travelers Rest High School is a scrimmage. Scrimmages at our Facilities are closed so no spectators are allowed in. Once the regular season starts on March 1st, tickets for spring events will be sold on GoFan. ALL tickets will be digital.

Just like fall and winter sports, spring sports will have limited seating capacities. Because of the number of spring sports there will often be more than one event on campus at the same time. When the time comes to start purchasing tickets please make sure that you purchase tickets for the correct event that you are attending. You will only be allowed to watch that event. Due to COVID-19 seating and attendance restrictions we ask you not jump between events that you did NOT purchase tickets for. For example, if there is a baseball and softball game going on at the same time, please do not walk back and forth between both games to watch them.

As always, for parents of athletes, a link will be sent out to your coaches who will then distribute those links for parents to purchase advanced tickets before they go public. This will be critical for those facilities that have a very limited capacity such as Baseball and Softball. Here are a few things to remember before you purchase a ticket for one of our Spring Events:

  1. Gates to permit spectators in to facility will open 20 minutes before game time.
  2. Masks MUST be worn at all times on school grounds.
  3. Spectators must sit in marked areas on bleachers and on the ground.
  4. Spectators must have already purchased a digital ticket to enter.

The Devildogs struggled from the free throw line hitting just 6 out of 15 and Irmo pulled to within 4 twice in the final minute and a half. The Devildogs hit just enough of their free throws in the final seconds of the game and stopped Irmo defensively to maintain their lead. Jamie Thompson scored on a layup at the buzzer and the Devildogs held on for a 49-41 win. They will host Region 1 champion Greenville on Thursday.

GCS requests community’s help in reversing COVID spread

(11/22/2020 / GCS Press Release)

Mask Up GCS

As COVID cases in Greenville County and the State of South Carolina continue to rise, Greenville County Schools is asking students, parents, and the greater community to help ensure the return to in-person school in the district is not derailed by rising numbers. GCS is asking all citizens to follow DHEC guidelines to help reverse the current increase: wear a mask when in public, avoid large gatherings, frequently wash or sanitize hands and high-touch surfaces, stay home and away from others when sick, and seek medical advice when running a fever, developing a new or worsening cough, experiencing shortness of breath, or losing the sense of taste or smell.

  • Though statistics show individuals are safer from the risk of COVID inside our schools where protocols are strict, we could soon reach a tipping point where the number of employee absences would make it impossible for us to safely supervise students. This would result in a temporary return to eLearning.
  • The community can help us stay on track by following recommended precautions outside of school: wear a mask when in public, avoid large gatherings, frequently wash or sanitize hands and high-touch surfaces, stay home and away from others when sick, and seek medical advice when running a fever, developing a new or worsening cough, experiencing shortness of breath, or losing the sense of taste or smell.
  • Do NOT send students to school who are symptomatic of any contagious disease and follow DHEC instructions on COVID isolations and quarantines.

Devildogs Extinguish the Blue Flame

(11/6/2020 / TRHS Webmaster)

Devildog Football

The Devildog football team traveled to Pickens for the final game of the regular season on Friday night. After last week's loss to Walhalla, the Devildogs needed to beat Pickens by at least 15 points in order to earn the second playoff spot in Region 1AAAA. They got off to a quick start scoring on their first possession on a pass from Mills to Hellams. Bradley Russ-Martin scooped up a Pickens fumble and scored to give the Devildogs a 14-0 lead with 4:32 left in the first quarter. Pickens scored in the final minute of the quarter to cut the lead to 14-7.

Both teams had multiple interceptions in the first half but the Devildogs were able to take advantage of the turnovers and scored three touchdowns in the second quarter. The final touchdown came after Pickens intercepted Mills inside the five yard line only to see Brooks Russ-Martin pick off a pass and return it into the red zone setting up a Mills to Hellams touchdown pass to give the Devildogs a 35-7 lead.

Both teams added touchdowns in the third quarter and headed into the final quarter with the Devildogs leading 42-13. The Devildog defense held the Blue Flame scoreless in the final quarter and scored a pair of touchdowns in the final 6 minutes to claim a dominant 56-13 win and clinch the second playoff spot. They will travel to A.C. Flora next Friday night for a first round playoff game. This is the third straight year the Devildogs have made the playoffs and the first game against Flora.

Devildogs Fall to Razorbacks

(10/30/2020 / TRHS Webmaster)

Homecoming Court 2020

Friday night the Devildog varsity football team played their last home game in this shortened season hosting Walhalla. Before the game, the 2020 Homecoming Court was presented. Seniors Jordan Hamon and Shaun Perkins were named 2020 Homecoming Queen and King. Sofia Sea was named Senior Princess, Grace Rackley was named Junior Princess, Avery Stephens was named Sophomore Princess, and Ava Gillespie was named Freshman Princess.

The Devildogs won the toss and chose to defer to the second half. The Razorbacks were forced to punt and Travelers Rest moved the ball down to the 29 yard line but fumbled to end their first drive. The Razorbacks were forced to punt again on their next possession. Cam Henderson scored the first TD of the night and the Devildogs led 7-0 with 3:04 left in the first quarter.

Walhalla answered in the second quarter with a TD run by their quarterback. The extra point was good and the score was tied 7-7 with 10:54 left in the half. The Razorbacks put together another drive late in the half. The Devildog defense stopped them just inches from the goal and Walhalla called time out with four seconds left in the half. The Razorbacks chose to go for the TD after the time out and after a discussion the officials ruled that the Razorbacks scored on the effort. They led 14-7 at the half.

The Devildogs received the second half kickoff and Henderson returned the kick past midfield and later scored his second touchdown of the night to tie the game at 14 with 5:23 left in the third quarter. Henderson's touchdown came after Bradley Russ-Martin blocked a Walhalla punt. On their first play after the ensuing kickoff, the Razorbacks scored on a 71 yard pass. The extra point was good and the visitors led 21-14. They forced the Devildogs to punt on the next possession and recovered a fumbled snap in the end zone to score their final touchdown of the night. The extra point was no good and they led 27-14. The Devildogs were unable to move the ball late and Walhalla was able to run out the clock and win the game. With the win, Walhalla moves to 2-1 in region play while the Devildogs fall to 1-2 with one game left at Pickens next Friday night.

The Devildogs won the toss and deferred. After forcing the Green Wave to punt on their first series, the Devildogs moved down the field. Easley intercepted a Mills pass to stop the drive and took advantage of the turnover by driving down the field and scoring on a 9 yard TD run to take a 7-0 lead with 2:20 left in the first quarter. The Devildogs answered quickly with Drayton Ward scoring on a 29 yard pass from Caleb Mills on the third play after the Easley kickoff.

Easley regained the lead in the second quarter with a 25 yard field goal with 8:53 left in the first half. The Devildogs took the lead with a 7 yard TD run by A.J. Raines with 3:32 left in the half. The Devildogs led 14-10 at the half.

The Devildogs extended their lead in the third quarter with Mills finding Jacari Hellams in the end zone from the three yard line. Cam Henderson ran for the two point conversion and the Devildogs led 22-10 with a little over 7 minutes left in the third quarter. An Easley punt pinned the Devildogs inside the five yard line. The Devildogs fumbled and recovered the ball in the end zone giving Easley a safety.

Wesley Pope kicked a 20 yard field goal with 5:54 left in the game. Easley got a fourth interception late in the final quarter and drove into the red zone. Alex Ward intercepted the ball on the two yard line and ran 98 yards for the final score of the night. Pope kicked the extra point and the Devildogs won the game 32-12. The Devildogs will host Walhalla next Friday night in their final home regular season game.

(10/3/2020 / TRHS Webmaster)

Devildogs

The Devildogs traveled to Westside to take on the Rams in their first Region 1 AAAA contest. In a game where the defenses kept scoring to a minimum, the Devildogs came up just short losing 13-12 in the first game ever between the two teams. Travelers Rest received the opening kickoff and started at the 20. Westside's defense came up with their first big play forcing and recovering a fumble in the opening minute. The Devildog defense held the Rams to a 32 yard field goal and Westside led 3-0. Later in the first quarter the Devildogs missed a 32 yard field goal. Both teams moved the ball but the defenses came up big in the red zone with both teams turning the ball over on downs. Riley Gilbert intercepted a pass giving the Devildogs the ball inside the Westside 10 late in the second half. Caleb Mills would score the first touchdown of the night on a one yard run. The extra point was no good and the Devildogs led 6-3 with 2:02 left in the half. Westside moved down the field but a Cameron Campbell interception stopped the drive in the final seconds of the half and for the second week in a row the Devildogs had a 6-3 lead at halftime.

The Rams started the second half on offense but the Devildog defense forced a failed field goal attempt from 29 yards out. The Rams defense forced a punt on the next possession, the first of the night, and took over on the Devildog side of the field. They tied the game on a 43 yard field goal with 2:41 left in the 3rd quarter. The game remained tied at 6 entering the final quarter.

Westside picked off a pass to start the 4th quarter and took over at the Devildog 39 yard line. Bryson Aiken picked off a Westside pass to end the drive at the four yard line. Travelers Rest had to punt again and Westside took over on their own 41 yard line. The Devildog defense forced a fumble near the goal line but Westside recovered it in the end zone for a touchdown. After kicking the extra point the Rams led 13-6 with 9:16 left in the game. The Devildogs answered as Cam Henderson completed a 48 yard TD pass to Drayton Ward with 7:46 left in the game. The Devildogs attempted a 2 point conversion but Henderson was stopped short of the goal line and Westside held a 13-12 lead.

Westside was able to take a lot of time off of the clock with their running game. A missed field goal gave the Devildogs one last chance with 1:07 left in the game. Westside stopped the Devildogs on a fourth down play and took over with 22 seconds left in the game and preserve the 13-12 win.

Statistically the game was as close as the score with each team having a little more than 270 yards total offense. Westside outrushed the Devildogs 256 to 78. Cam Henderson led the Devildogs with 86 rushing yards. The Devildogs had a 195 to 21 advantage in passing yards with six different receivers having catches for the Devildogs.

Girls' Golf Halfway Through Season

(9/28/2020 / Coach Young)

Although still looking for our first team win this season, our Lady Devildog Golf Team has had some notable highlights and has been showing both individual and team improvement throughout the first half of the season.

One notable highlight this season was a rare hole-in-one on a par 3 by Sophomore Rebekah DeMars in a match vs. Greenville at The Preserve at Verdae. It was a good way to start a season for Rebekah and the team. In that match Junior Nikki Strandell posted the first of her three individual wins already this season, scoring a 44 in the 9-hole event. Nikki’s best score so far this season is a 41 vs. Pickens.

To show some team improvement, the girls posted a score of 211 vs. Walhalla in 9 holes, compared to 233 in our opening match of the season. These scores include just the top 4 scores of the team.

The most positive note so far this year is that some of our players have improved their personal best nine-hole scores, which is something we celebrate. This kind of personal improvement is going to lead to our future team success. This 2020-21 Girls Golf Roster is: Elizabeth Anne Looper, Kamryn League, Grace Rackley, Kaelyn Simpson, Hallie Bishop, Rebekah DeMars, and Nikki Strandell.

Devildogs Open with Win Over Eagles

(9/25/2020 / TRHS Webmaster)

Devildogs

The Devildog varsity football team hosted Eastside on Friday night to open this delayed season. With realignment this was a non-region contest. The past two years the teams combined for nearly 200 points. This year the defenses took control early and saw the score tied 0-0 at the end of the first quarter. Travelers Rest scored quickly in the second quarter on a 14 yard TD run by Cam Henderson and led 6-0 after the extra point attempt was blocked. They had a chance to score again but fumbled inside the five yard line with 8 minutes left in the first half to end the drive. Eastside moved down the field at the end of the half but the Devildog defense held them to a 35 yard field goal as the half ended to take a 6-3 lead into halftime.

Caleb Mills completed a 12 yard touchdown pass to Dillon King late in the third quarter to give the Devildogs a 12-3 lead after a failed two point attempt. Two plays into the final quarter Mills hit a wide open Christian Nielsen in the end zone to give the Devildogs a 19-3 lead after the extra point. The Devildog defense continued to control the Eagle offense and late in the fourth quarter the Devildogs put together a drive which ended in a 30 yard touchdown pass from Mills to Jonquez Webb on a 4th and 5 play to seal the 25-3 win.

Before the game the senior fall sports athletes were recognized. The Devildogs will travel to Westside next Friday for their first Region 1 AAAA game. Please see the information that will be posted later this week on the TRHS website for important information if you plan to attend the game.

GCS is following DHEC guidelines for excluding students and teachers from school when an individual is exhibiting symptoms, has been tested for COVID-19, is a confirmed positive case, or has been exposed (within six feet of a positive case for more than 15 minutes) to this virus. To be safe, we are asking families to notify their school(s) anytime there is a concern related to COVID-19 so we can provide guidance based on DHEC regulations. We also want families who have traveled internationally to follow all quarantine directives they receive when re-entering the country. Anyone who has been directed to quarantine when re-entering the country should not attend school for the period of the quarantine – usually 14 days. This graphic represents the steps that should be taken to return safely to school in numerous COVID-19 situations.
