Big news has been coming out of the Page house.
It's the one owned by Bobby and Jane Page, who are familiar to a lot of folks whose children have played sports in Rock Hill.
Jane has been at Sullivan Middle School for 29 years as a teacher, coach and athletics director. She is moving to Rock Hill's new middle school, Dutchman Creek, which opens in the fall.
She will be the AD but will also go back to coaching girls basketball, the sport she calls her passion. Bobby is an assistant varsity girls basketball coach at Northwestern High School and also a football assistant.
And good news has been pouring in concerning their daughter, Kristin, who signed a grant-in-aid to play soccer at Anderson.
Kristin has received additional scholarships from Carolina Sports, Inc., awarded by the South Carolina Athletic Coaches Association, the School of Education at Anderson and the Herlong Scholarship. Kristin wants to coach and teach.
