VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO CELEBRATE THE SOUTH CAROLINA GOVERNOR'S SCHOOL FOR SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS BOYS SOCCER TEAM ON ITS EXCELLENT SEASON AND TO CONGRATULATE THE TEAM'S FINE ATHLETES ON THEIR IMPRESSIVE WIN OF THE 2018 CLASS A STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE.
Whereas, single-mindedly resolved to take home the crown, the South Carolina Governor's School for Science and Mathematics (GSSM) boys soccer team captured the 2018 Class A State Championship title, soaring above the Charleston Math and Science Charter School on May 12, 2018, at Irmo High School; and
Whereas, the GSSM Eagles scored in a mostly defensive first half to book a half-time lead of 2-0. The heat of the day and relentless pressure from GSSM's offense led to three more goals in the second half to go up 5-0. The defense held off a motivated Riptide offense for the shut-out; and
Whereas, the Eagles showed patience and determination throughout the game, keeping control of the ball and feeding it forward with surgical passing. The defense was largely unpenetrated, with only one serious threat on goal from the Riptide on a free kick; and
Whereas, having honed his team into a championship machine, GSSM's Coach Jay Shimeck saw the fruits of his labor as the title trophy was hoisted. The win marked the school's first state championship in soccer; and
Whereas, the journey to winning the state title required discipline, dedication, and teamwork, qualities these players have proved they possess in abundance. With admiration, the House recognizes and applauds the outstanding work of the GSSM boys soccer team and wishes its members much continued success in all their future endeavors. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, celebrate the South Carolina Governor's School for Science and Mathematics boys soccer team on its excellent season and congratulate the team's fine athletes on their impressive win of the 2018 Class A State Championship title.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to President Hector Flores and Coach Jay Shimeck of the South Carolina Governor's School for Science and Mathematics.
