JV Volleyball Defeats Hillcrest Again

Finishes Season with 17 wins against only 3 losses

 

On Thursday night the JV Lady Mavs went down the road to Simpsonville to play rival Hillcrest on the Rams home floor.  The Lady Mavs finished the season the way they started it - with a victory.  And what a sweet one it was... 23-25 25-15 15-8 and a season sweep of the Rams!

 

In Game 1, the Lady Mavs and the Rams both came out fighting.  After the Lady Mavs took a slim 6-5, the Rams went on a huge roll and took the next 10 straight for a 15-6 lead and things looked bleak for the visitors.  But the Lady Mavs righted the ship and rallied to with 20-18 forcing a Rams timeout.  But the rally continued as the Lady Mavs moved to within one point of victory 24-21.  But the home Rams decided enough was enough and were able to string together 5 straight points and take game one in an agonizing loss 26-24.

 

In Game 2 the Lady Mavs came out smokin'!!  The Mavs hot start led to 10-3 lead and they never looked back.  At one point they stretched the lead to 20-9 and cruised to a 25-15 win.

 

In Game 3, the Lady Mavs again were strong from the start and led the majority of the way before finally completing the SEASON SWEEP of Hillcrest, 15-8.

 

Fantastic Season!!  The future of Lady Mavs Volleyball looks very bright!!

 

The JV Lady Mavs would also like to wish their Varsity Sister the best of luck in the 4AAAA playoffs that start next week.  GO MAVS!!

 

Final Regular Season Record 17 WINS and 3 LOSSES.

JV Volleyball Defeats Boiling Springs

 Click here to meet the JV Lady Mavs

On Thursday night, the JV Lady Mavs went on the road to face a very determined group of Lady Bulldogs from Boiling Springs.  It would not be easy on this night in Spartanburg County, but in the end after two hard fought games the Lady Mavs put another W in the win column with a 25-23 25-23 victory.

 

In game 1, the Lady Mavs got off to a hot start thanks to the hot hitting of Junior Kristina Brown.  Early on Brown recorded kills on consecutive points and 3 out of 4 and the Lady Mavs were up early on the Bulldogs.  After some back and forth action, the Mavs stretched the lead to 17-13 but the Bulldogs fought tough and cut the lead to 1 at 19-18.  Again, however, the Lady Mavs strected the lead to game point at 24-20 and again the Bulldogs fought back to within 1 at 24-23.  But after a couple of hits that went long, the third time was the charm for the Mavs and Laura Woodlee dropped the last point into the Bulldogs court for a kill and a 25-23 victory.

 

In Game 2, the Lady Mavs went on a huge run midway through the game and took a seemingly comfortable 21-10 lead but again there was no quit in the Bulldogs who stormed back to tie the score at 23!  But again the Lady Mavs would not be denied and the took the next two points and the victory 25-23.

 

The Mavs have their final home game of the season on Tuesday, October 21st  against Byrnes at 5:30.  Come out and show your support!!

 

Regular Season Record 15 WINS and 3 LOSSES.

Cosimo's story an inspiration for all our Students

Posted in Headlines by SandyLawson



Cosimo Sinatra, Mauldin High Student, to be Recognized by Greenville County Disabilities and Special Needs Foundation

Greenville, SC – On Thursday, October 16, Mauldin High School Student Cosimo Sinatra will be recognized as Student of the Year at this year's Triumph of the Human Spirit Awards sponsored by the Greenville County Disabilities and Special Needs Foundation.

 (The Following Was Written by Lisa Smith, Mauldin High Special Education Teacher)

“Cosimo Sinatra is among a small group of the bravest and brightest individuals I have ever had the pleasure to know.  Cosimo knows he has a disability, but does not define himself by his disability.  He executes himself as a generous and courageous young man, full of kindness.  His gentle mannerisms touch everyone he comes in contact with. I have watched Cosimo touch the lives and hearts of so many as he serves his community – he doesn’t help because he has to as part of our curriculum, he serves with open eyes and an open heart.  There are few adults I’ve witnessed who embrace and support humanity with the passion, and compassion, that Cosimo Sinatra exudes.I’ve watched Cosimo work with our senior citizens at the NHC nursing home.  I’ve watched him support our children at Washington Center through hand over hand instruction during art class.  I’ve watched Cosimo support his classmates, coaching them through difficult times, through bouts of anger and tears.To promote tolerance, I’ve watched Cosimo talk to both, his peers and younger students, about what it’s like to have a disability. I’ve watched Cosimo, during Bethel Elementary’s Disability Day, empathize with younger students with disabilities, lending his ear and offering words of wisdom to encourage self-esteem and promote self-worth.One of the most remarkable things about Cosimo Sinatra is how unremarkable he is, or appears to be.  When you meet Cos, you see an average, normal, everyday teenager.  He is often aloof, terribly unorganized, irresponsible at times, and makes your average teenage mistakes.
 What folks don’t see when they meet Cos is his disability.  You won’t see a child who takes three different medications a day, and will for the rest of his life, in order to live.  You don’t see a child who has to go to the nurse to have his blood pressure taken twice a week because of severe hypertension.  You don’t see a child with only one kidney, and you have no idea that the single kidney he has functions at less than 30 percent.  You don’t see a child who spent his early childhood years in and out of hospitals due to complications related to a premature delivery at 25 weeks.You only see what Cosimo Sinatra sees when he looks in the mirror.  You see what I see; a young man, grateful for what he has and eager to give to those less fortunate… always willing to lend a helping hand…. happy to wake up each day and eager to spend time with friends and family.

When you look at Cosimo Sinatra you see a true triumph of the human spirit—and you see no student more worthy of the honor as Student of the Year.”

 

Thank you for a successful fundraising dinner!
