Richmond Academy golfer Carson Spears poses with his teammates after signing with Presbyterian College.

Carson Spears still has a title to win, so while his signature solidifies his future, his focus remains on high school.


On Wednesday, the Richmond Academy golfer signed with Presbyterian College, just weeks before Spears hopes to win a Georgia High School Association Class AAAA state championship on May 20.

“My first priority is state – we’ve come so close,” Spears said. “But college is still on my mind.”

In Spears’ junior year, Richmond Academy finished in second place in Class AAA behind Gainesville. Spears shot 73, which tied Greyson Sigg for the Musketeers’ best score.

In part because of that round, Spears has stood out. He gets to continue to play golf in college as a reward.

“It really means a lot,” Spears said. “I put so much effort into the game. It’s my passion.”

• It’s been a good two days for Grovetown’s Danielle Reynolds.

On Tuesday, the senior golfer shot 88 in the Region 2-AAAAA golf regional and qualified for the state tournament as the low medalist on a non-competing team.

On Wednesday, Reynolds took care of her future as she signed her letter of intent to play for Division II Erskine College.

“It was close-knit and small and it was just like a warm vibe and the golf program fits the way I play,” Reynolds said.

BASKETBALL: Connor Sigrist, the 6-foot7 forward for Greenbrier signed Wednesday to play for Oglethorpe University in Atlanta.

“His confidence is building, his toughness is building, all those things where he’s going to peak as a good college basketball player,” Grenbrier head coach Casey Heckathorn said.

“He’s just at the tip of the iceberg with his basketball potential and what he’s going to accomplish the next few years.”

FOOTBALL: Westside’s Brandon Hugee has signed with North Greenville University.
