SCC Flyers Subject of Major Story in Statewide Papers
The Sandhills Community College Flyers basketball team scored big this past weekend when it was featured prominently in the state's two largest newspapers: The News & Observer of Raleigh and The Charlotte Observer.
Noted sports writer Scott Fowler did a lengthy article on the team's uphill climb these past few years and the national title the team won last year.
"When you think of college basketball in North Carolina," Fowler writes, "you think first of the ACC. Famous coaches. future NBA stars. Packed arenas. ESPN telecasts. National championships.
"You won't see a bit of that at Sandhills Community College in Pinehurst -- except for the 'national championship' part."
