Four Airport spring athletes sign up for college

Today was signing day for four Airport spring sports athletes. Softball player Latavia Riley agreed to a scholarship offer at South Carolina. Soccer stars Casi Jones (Lander), Erin Gray (Erskine) and Kelly Smith (USC Sumter) also signed on the dotted line at the noon special event at the school.

Jones, Gray and Smith, along with fellow seniors Heather Button, Haley McKnight, and Memory Holland all scored goals in what may well have been their final homer match at Eagles Stadium on Friday in a 14-0 win over Lugoff-Elgin.

Emily Jeffcoat and Savannah Austin scored two goals apiece in the romp, while Rebecca Baker, Haley Pipkin, MC Driggers and Denise Bonnette rounded out the scoring with one goal each.

Airport closes out the regular season Thursday at Blythewood.
