CHARLESTON LOWCOUNTRY FIRE ADVANCES TO NATIONAL TOURNAMENT IN ATLANTA, GEORGIA
The Charleston Lowcountry Fire wins the Atlantic Region Tournament on Saturday, July 23, 2011 by defeating the Virginia Lady Stallions in the Championship Game 67 - 63. The Fire won their first game versus the USA Elite team 85 - 80. After a 90 minute break, the Championship Game was set between the Stallions and the Fire.
The Charleston Lowcountry Fire recognized Special Olympics Day on May 14, 2011. The Fire took $1 from each of the 51 tickets that were sold that day and contributed it towards the local Special Olympics Organization.
The Charleston Lowcountry Fire received a "Thank You" Letter from the President/CEO of the South Carolina Special Organization, Barry S. Coats. The contribution permitted Special Olympic Athletes the opportunity to participate in a Bocce Competition. "Your generous support...was received on June 16, 2011 and has helped Special Olympics South Carolina improve the lives of children and adults with intellectual disabilities in a direct and tangible way. When Special Olympics athletes walk into a gymnasium...they are transformed. No longer framed by negative stereotypes and misconceptions, they see themselves as champions. Those around them are changed, too, seeing--often for the first time--athletes and recognizing there is so much more they can do. Thank you for your support of this wonderful population!"
The Charleston Lowcountry Fire continues to burn as they win at their final Home Game versus the Raleigh/Durham Sting. Jontell Johnson scored 14 points and had 18 rebounds to lead the Fire (5-0) over the Sting, 76-54 on June 11th. Brittany Young scored 21 points and had 7 assists, while Sydnei Moss added 14 points and 8 rebounds. The Charleston Lowcountry Fire will play in the South Classic in Atlanta, Ga on Saturday, June 18th at 3pm versus the Columbus Georgia Lady Wings at the Salvation Army on Dewey Street.
Charleston Lowcountry Fire sets the tone with their first win in their Season Game Opener versus the USA Elite Team. The Fire defeated The Elite 74-58 on Saturday, May 14th. The Fire supported the Annual Disabilities Walk early that morning and invited everyone to their Special Olympics Awareness Day game that afternoon. The Special Olympics Basketball Team attended the game, and the Fire players presented each of them with 'job well done' medallions.
Both the Charleston Lowcountry Fire and Newberry Panthers prepare for their Season Game Openers by working the "kinks" out in a pre season scrimmage. The Panthers travelled to Charleston on Friday, April 22nd to play. It served as a "measuring stick" for the teams.
There were 24 campers that participated in the Charleston Lowcountry Fire President's Day Basketball Camp. The camp was 8:00am-3:30pm at the brand new Arthur W Christopher Community Center. The day consisted of basketball fundamentals in the morning, a spaghetti lunch, video session, and games.
THANK YOU TO ALL OF THE VOLUNTEERS AND SUPPORTERS!!!!
