“Most of the guys practiced or played while they were sick last week,” said Simmons. “As a coach, it showed me their drive and determination of wanting to be good and I couldn’t ask for anything else. We must finish the season on a strong point and keep building.”
Colleton Prep is now 4-13 overall and 4-9 in region play. They were scheduled to host Saint John’s Christian Tuesday Feb. 5 at home for Senior Night. The final regular season game against Patrick Henry Friday Feb. 8.
