• Fall soccer continues with games on Thursdays and Saturdays. The soccer program has its own Web site, , listing all schedules and up-to-date information. The soccer program still needs volunteers to help with lining fields and administrative duties.

• The LWAA Southern Belle Cheerleaders from Rock Hill have advanced to the Mid-South Regional final competition. The girls competed against Gaston County teams and won the division. Now, they get to compete at Bobcats Arena. The competition will be held Nov. 28.

• The results are in. The following players qualify for Pop Warner Scholars, and may apply for College Scholarships through pop Warner: Brett Blackwood, Wesley Cope, James Dennis, Sean Elder, Nathan Lalli, Joshua Landes, Dante Redfern, William Schlirf, Justin White, Samuel Fitzgerald, Evan Johnson, Brendan Montesi, Frank Sugameli, Kristen Ciurlik, Lauren Griffith, Katherine Isbell, Amy Kingswood, Jade Lambert and Rachel Park. These children all maintained high GPAs last year and participated in this year's LWAA Pop Warner program. Congratulations and good luck to all!

• Regional football playoff finals will be held in Gaston County this year. Although we have no teams advancing, we encourage all players and prospects to go watch a game or two. Football at the regional final level is very exciting.

• We've been contacted by people from Rock Hill, Fort Mill and York looking to bring their children into Pop Warner next year. This will be great, as we can then play other teams from York County. If you know of anyone in these or other local towns, let us know, we will try to put all of these people together to build other strong associations.

We are always looking for continued support. If you would like to donate money, goods or services, call (803) 831-9298. To volunteer, go to for the form.
