The South Carroll Athletic Department is proud to announce the selection of the Athletic Hall of Fame Class of 2018. Thousands of student-athletes and hundreds of coaches, administrators, and others have participated, or played a role in the school’s athletic program since its inception in 1967. There are, however, those special people who have stood above the rest in their achievements and contributions to the South Carroll Athletic program. Five such individuals will be recognized for their contributions on Friday, February 2 at half time of the South Carroll vs. Francis Scott Key boys’ basketball game. We are proud to welcome Gene Brown, Bob Huggins, Mike Jenkins, Nicole Spencer and Lindsay Vosloh to the South Carroll Hall of Fame.

Parents of Winter Athletes
The South Carroll Athletic Department will host the annual winter “Meet the Coach Night” on Monday, November 27, at 6:00 PM in the auditorium. The evening will begin with a presentation on school and county rules, an overview of our boosters program, and a very short presentation by our trainer. This is only for parents who did not attend this presentation this past fall. If your child played a fall sport, then you do not need to attend this session.
Parents will then break out into short meetings with their child’s coaches. Attached you will find the South Carroll Parent-Child Rule Book. If you had a child play a fall sport, you do not need to do anything. If you did not have a child play a fall sport, then you will need to print out the Athlete Contract, sign it, have your child sign it, and return it to their coach that evening.
After the coaches meetings parents will have the opportunity to pay the team membership fee ($105 per season with a maximum of $150 per family with multiple athletes), purchase season passes ($25 for students, $35 for adults, $100 for a family of 4), and to join our boosters. There will also be spirit wear and sunglasses for sale during the night. Our goal is to have all meetings and activities concluded no later than 8:00 PM. We look forward to seeing all of you on November 27.
