South Effingham High starts bass team

South Effingham hooks new sport

GUYTON — South Effingham High School has hooked another sport for its athletic department.

The Mustangs are jumping into bass fishing and not the other new sport recently sanctioned by the Georgia High School Association — flag football.

“I chose one and not the other because of interest,” South Effingham Athlethic Director Jeff Faith. “We are kind of land locked down here. Flag football would have been competing for field space, which we don’t have currently. 

“That’s another reason why I need another year before I start up flag football at South.”

Although the head coaching position for bass fishing has drawn interest, Faith is not in a rush to make a hire.

“I am going to take my time with that part,” he said. “I have three staff members who are interested and who are willing to take that position and run with it but I am just waiting it out right now.”…Full Story
