FORT MILL — The schedules for the baseball, softball, golf, tennis, and track teams for Fort Mill and Nation Ford high schools are all underway.
Nation Ford opened its baseball season recently at the Red Bank Invitational in Lexington going 1-2 in three games. Fort Mill pulled out of its Baseball at the Beach tournament because of poor weather expected on the coast late last week.
The Jackets will open its season at home this week against Clover, before traveling to Cuthberson. The team takes on York on Friday at home.
The Falcons start the baseball season ranked 10th in the state, while Fort Mill is un-ranked.
Nation Ford boys’ tennis opens its regular season this week at home against Lancaster and looks to make another deep playoff run. The Falcons’ tennis program is coming off a third round defeat against Spring Valley in the 2013 playoffs. In 2012, the team made it to the state finals.
The Fort Mill tennis season was supposed to open last week against Marvin Ridge, but the match was rained out. The Jackets are scheduled to play road matches against Clover and York this week.
The Lady Jackets softball program will open this week with games against Chester, Clover and York, before heading to Lexington for the weekend Wildcat Invitational.
Nation Ford’s softball program is also scheduled to head to Lexington for the same tournament after playing Lancaster and Union County this week.
Both schools’ boys’ golf program will open this week, with Fort Mill going against Lancaster and Rock Hill; while Nation Ford takes on Rock Hill and South Pointe in separate home matches.
The Falcons’ track program will have one road meet at Clover this week to open the season and Fort Mill will have a road meet at South Pointe, before the two squads meet this weekend at the Trojan Relays at Northwestern.
