RIVALS HILLSIDE, SOUTHERN TAKE TO THE LINKS SEEKING CIVILITY

Hornets and Spartans are known for handing their business on football fields and basketball courts, where their rivalry has simmered for decades.

It’s a different story on the fairways and greens. The two schools actually need each other out there, making the gentleman’s game of golf the perfect sport to bring some much-needed civility to the Hillside-Southern rivalry, their coaches say

“It’s good to be competitors on the field of play, but outside the field of play, they’ve got to come together,” Southern coach Van Miles said.

Just imagine the mighty sound on a Friday night of football if the historically strong marching bands from Southern and Hillside joined their horns and drums, Hillside coach Gordon Matthewson said.

Both Hillside and Southern could use some help with fundraising, and it would make all the sense in the world for the two schools to collaborate toward that end, Southern coach Van Miles said.

Huh and Reed, the second-round leader who shot a 71, were at 10-under 200. Huh shook off a triple bogey on his second hole, making up for it with three birdies in a four-hole stretch of the back nine.
