Championship Soccer Team Honored at Statehouse
Posted June 1, 2012
A HOUSE RESOLUTION
TO RECOGNIZE AND CONGRATULATE THE PORTER‑GAUD SCHOOL BOYS VARSITY SOCCER TEAM ON ITS EXCELLENT SEASON AND IMPRESSIVE WIN OF THE 2012 SOUTH CAROLINA INDEPENDENT SCHOOL ASSOCIATION (SCISA) CLASS AAA STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE.
Whereas, supremely ready for the challenge, the Porter‑Gaud School boys varsity soccer team nailed the 2012 SCISA Class AAA State Championship title, defeating Pinewood Prep 2‑1; and
Whereas, the stands echoed with the shouts of exuberant Cyclone fans, pleased to see their confident predictions of victory realized; and
Whereas, with less than two minutes remaining in a sudden‑death five‑minute period, Porter‑Gaud unleashed a shot from thirty yards out that sailed into the back of the goal, clinching the win and state title for the Cyclones; and
Whereas, Porter‑Gaud thus wrapped up its roster with a 25‑3‑1 record, a satisfying ending to an incredible season; and
Whereas, such victories do not come overnight; they take determination and hard work. With proven consistency in both, Coach Jeff Hoerner built his soccer program into a championship team that refused to settle for second best; and
Whereas, the Cyclones have brought great pride and recognition to their school and community, and the members of the House of Representatives are pleased to have this opportunity to recognize such a wonderful group of young athletes. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, recognize and congratulate the Porter‑Gaud School boys varsity soccer team on its excellent season and impressive win of the 2012 South Carolina Independent School Association (SCISA) Class AAA State Championship title.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Head of School DuBose Egleston and Coach Jeff Hoerner of Porter‑Gaud School.
