Mauldin's Ryan Norton commits to Tigers

 

Mauldin's Ryan Norton commits to Tigers

by David Hood -- Senior Writer

Norton selected the Tigers over Georgia Tech and South Carolina.

Mauldin High School’s Ryan Norton was with his mom and dad getting ready to eat hot dogs following the Mavericks’ spring game on Friday, and figured there was no time like the present to give Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney a call and let him know that he was going to be a Clemson Tiger.

“I knew for a while that it would be hard to beat Clemson,” Norton said late Friday. “Tonight, I just had that gut feeling that I wanted to go ahead and commit because Clemson is just the best fit for me. Coach Swinney was very excited and welcomed me into the Clemson family.”

Norton (6-4, 275) is considered the top center prospect in the state, and will more than likely play on the interior in college. He was also considering Georgia Tech and South Carolina.

Norton said that being able to make such a huge decision with family and friends around made it even better.

“They were all excited,” he said. “They knew I really liked Clemson and they were all congratulating me and stuff. I wanted to go ahead and commit now because from now on I just want to focus on my team, and I don’t want anything else on my mind. But I am very excited to be a Clemson Tiger.”

Lee Taylor, Norton’s position coach at Mauldin, said it is always gratifying to see one of his players earn a trip to the next level.

“As a coach, any time a kid goes off to college to play, you just feel good for the kid,” Taylor said. “We had Taylor Hudson go off to East Carolina last year, and to see Ryan go to Clemson is awesome, especially in seeing where he has come from since he was a 9th-grader. He was playing the C Team, and he never played junior varsity, and then as a 10th grader was thrown onto the varsity. It is really fulfilling to me to see him commit to such a great program.”

Taylor said the fact that the Clemson coaches kept in contact with Norton almost from the beginning made a huge difference.

“He weighed a lot of other schools, but Clemson showed a lot of interest and took care of him from the beginning,” Taylor said. “He got along with the coaches, and I think staying home was important to him. The coaches also did a great job of staying on him, and letting him know they were interested in him.”

Norton selected the Tigers over Georgia Tech and South Carolina.

After 13-year break, Mavericks host meet

By Bob Castello • Staff writer • April 13, 2010

 MAULDIN – As Joseph Hill approached the track at Mauldin Middle School on Monday afternoon, he noticed the crowd – a home crowd.

“When I was rolling up in my car and I saw all the people here already, I was inspired to see how many people came out to support us,” he said.

It was a first for Hill and his teammates. It was Mauldin High School's first home track meet in 13 years.

Those who attended the meet between Golden Strip rivals Mauldin and Hillcrest were greeted by a banner that read, “MHS TRACK, HOME @ LAST.”

Mauldin track coach Terrence Harris said fans began arriving for the 5 p.m. meet about an hour early. A ribbon cutting was held before the meet.

“This is awesome,” Harris said. “For these seniors, this is the first time they've been able to run in front of a home crowd.”

Harris was a junior at Mauldin the last time the team had a home meet, in 1997. That was at the high school track, which had been deteriorating for years.

In the spring of 2009, the Mavericks began practicing at the middle school track. Mauldin High School athletic director Steve Frady said the track, which belongs to the high school, did not meet regulations at that time.

But by the summer, Frady said, the track had been expanded and the pits, high jump circle and throwing areas had been added.

“The track is not a rubber track, but it's one of the best tracks that we have in Greenville County and I like it,” said Hill, who competed in two relays and the 1,600-meter hurdles on Monday.

Hill, the president of the senior class, said there was a big buildup for the meet, complete with numerous announcements at school and T-shirts marking the occasion.

“It's kind of nerve-racking to see all your friends out here finally watching you run, but it's still cool, because they get to see what you do,” he said. “Unlike basketball, we don't have home meets every week, so this is the first time in a long time.”

Flying Brendan Ryan hands off to Jackie Smith

The Mavs Sprint group started their season off on the right foot at the 1st dual meet of the season.  All of their 400 meter competitors came into this meet focused, and all started their season running under 58 seconds.  Top three Mauldin runners in the open 400 were Isaiah Phyall (54.2), Alston Michael Wright (55.4), and Brandon Sissel (55.54).  In the 200 meter dash, Junior newcomer Jackie Smith led Mauldin running a 23.9 followed in closely by Brandon Sissel (24.07), and Isaiah Phyall (24.7).  Jackie Smith also led Mauldin in the 100 meter dash with an 11.4. 
The Hurdlers also did their thing on the track starting their season off with a bang.  Returning Juniors Andrew Benson and Isaac Phyall started off their season in the 110 Hurdles with a fast 16.56 and 16.9, respectively.  They were followed in by Junior Drew Stephens who is new to the Track Team and Hurdles running a 20.56.  Moving to the endurance end of the hurdles, returning Senior, Joseph Hill, set a personal record at the first meet of the season running a 59.6 in the 400 meter hurdles.  Following Joseph in, in the hurdles, were Tyler Pommerenke and Andrew Benson both running them in 1:06. 
The 4x100 relay, one of the hardest races based on accuracy, precision, technique, and speed, came in 2nd to Dorman by a small margin of 2 seconds.  Team members include:  Brendan Ryan, Jackie Smith, Daniel Lewis, and Andre Clarke.  On the other hand, the ‘A’ Team 4x400 was disqualified due to a false start, but the ‘B’ Team had no problem stepping in for them running the relay in 3:46.
Overall, Mauldin boys beat Ninety-Six; 101-41, but sadly loss to Dorman

Mauldin's Ryan Norton commits to Tigers

 

Mauldin's Ryan Norton commits to Tigers

by David Hood -- Senior Writer

Norton selected the Tigers over Georgia Tech and South Carolina.

Mauldin High School’s Ryan Norton was with his mom and dad getting ready to eat hot dogs following the Mavericks’ spring game on Friday, and figured there was no time like the present to give Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney a call and let him know that he was going to be a Clemson Tiger.

“I knew for a while that it would be hard to beat Clemson,” Norton said late Friday. “Tonight, I just had that gut feeling that I wanted to go ahead and commit because Clemson is just the best fit for me. Coach Swinney was very excited and welcomed me into the Clemson family.”

Norton (6-4, 275) is considered the top center prospect in the state, and will more than likely play on the interior in college. He was also considering Georgia Tech and South Carolina.

Norton said that being able to make such a huge decision with family and friends around made it even better.

“They were all excited,” he said. “They knew I really liked Clemson and they were all congratulating me and stuff. I wanted to go ahead and commit now because from now on I just want to focus on my team, and I don’t want anything else on my mind. But I am very excited to be a Clemson Tiger.”

Lee Taylor, Norton’s position coach at Mauldin, said it is always gratifying to see one of his players earn a trip to the next level.

“As a coach, any time a kid goes off to college to play, you just feel good for the kid,” Taylor said. “We had Taylor Hudson go off to East Carolina last year, and to see Ryan go to Clemson is awesome, especially in seeing where he has come from since he was a 9th-grader. He was playing the C Team, and he never played junior varsity, and then as a 10th grader was thrown onto the varsity. It is really fulfilling to me to see him commit to such a great program.”

Taylor said the fact that the Clemson coaches kept in contact with Norton almost from the beginning made a huge difference.

“He weighed a lot of other schools, but Clemson showed a lot of interest and took care of him from the beginning,” Taylor said. “He got along with the coaches, and I think staying home was important to him. The coaches also did a great job of staying on him, and letting him know they were interested in him.”

Norton selected the Tigers over Georgia Tech and South Carolina.
