Last week, Philip Simmons High School celebrated the college signing ceremony as six student-athletes announced their matriculation plans.
The ceremony could also serve as a snapshot of the future as more and more Iron Horse athletes will make the school a must stop on the recruiting trail.
“It’s the most we’ve had sign since I’ve been here,” said athletic director Dan Minkin, who is completing his third year at the school. “We had one my first year, and two last year. I can see this continue to grow and grow." He said the signings should continue to grow at a healthy rate and that double-digit signing classes will be here “sooner than you might expect.”
The April 26 signings showed great diversity in the demographics and opportunities.
The girls who signed included the state’s top sprinter in track and field, Naj Watson. The Class AA defending state champ in the 100- and 200-meters, will compete for Georgia Southern. And, standout De’Andra Brown will attend USC Beaufort.
Iron Horse athletic trainer Ella Cooper connected with the SEC, signing with the Kentucky Wildcats. Cheerleader Tori Parulis will go to Charleston Southern in the fall. Volleyball standout Ludy Borges will attend North Carolina Wesleyan.
Cooper’s scholarship might be the most intriguing of the group. She takes a trainer’s class taught by Alli Kunze. She is one of seven student-athletes who were selected for Kentucky’s training program. It’s not unusual to find her working on the sidelines during autumn night’s working with members of the varsity and junior varsity football teams. This spring, she is on the Iron Horse softball team, which has qualified for the Class AA state playoffs.
“It’s amazing that one of our student-athletes was selected, one of seven around the country,” Minkin said. “And it’s in the SEC, such a successful conference.”
Two sport star Tripp Williams will stay close to home, playing football for The Citadel.
The term is student-athlete, and there’s no variance at Philip Simmons.
“Signing a scholarship goes hand-in-hand with what we’re trying to accomplish on and off the field,” Minkin said. “We feel you really can’t experience athletic success if you don’t have academic success.”
The school is in position to win its second Class AA Carlyle Cup, which is given to the top athletic programs in all five classifications in the Palmetto State.
“We use the Carlyle Cup to measure the success of our teams,” Minkin said. “We use scholarships to measure the success of our students on and off the field.”

Sitting still while watercoloring, 5-year-old Adele quietly sings, “This little heart of mine, I’m gonna let it shine. Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine,” and fades beautifully like the blue sky into water she paints on the paper.
Then, Adele spills the tiny recycled jar of water all over her rainbow. “Oh no,” she exclaimed and pulled the paper quickly off of the park’s picnic table and watched the colors mix together.
“It’s OK,” she discovers and holds up for others to see. Her new friend Emily agrees, “It’s a cool mistake.”
Jiana Wankel, a recent college marine science graduate, leans over to look but she doesn’t add to the conversation. Her support is her silence. She’s quiet and learned through her good teachers in the past to just let kids start conversations and discover what they want to create. She’s the one who conceived the idea for “Art in the Park” back in March.
As a nanny to several families on Daniel Island, Wankel made wise observations about children and adults: We don’t sit quietly in boredom very well anymore. In her soothing voice, it’s not a judgmental statement, it’s a resounding fact that rings true in our society of smartphones.
“Downtime doesn’t have to mean screen time,” Wankel shared, along with her personal sketchbook, as the reason she started this program. “Lately, I’ve loved the confidence I’ve gained by trusting my creativity. I wanted to facilitate an outdoor activity for children to feel inspired, confident and proud of ideas and interests.”
For a few months now, Wankel has furnished art supplies every Tuesday (weather permitting) from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at Etiwan Park for kids 5 and up to come play: at the park and on the paper.
It’s a perfect drop-off time for busy parents who need to wrap up work and start dinner and it’s the perfect wind-down time for young minds. If they want to sit and paint or draw or create, there are plenty of supplies. If they want to run around and expend energy in between creative bursts, that’s OK too.
“I am here for any help they need,” Wankel said.
But as far as ideas for what to paint? “I want them to just go for it,” Wankel added.
Parents slide up beside their kids and start drawing, they drop them off late or pick them up early. Wankel has a very relaxed outlook about the whole experience and it translates to paper. The kids are relaxed and creating under a shady tree as a few rising third-graders add to the table.
“We love art,” one exclaimed and started confidently on a beach scene with her friend as the south side of the table started experimenting with Pollock-like splatters for sky patterns.
“I love how the kids play off each other,” Wankel shared with the remaining moms in an encouraging way, “It’s a subconscious way of supporting each other.”
At the end of the hour, some left with a single masterpiece and others left with a stack of creations. Parents came back from a grocery run or a quick errand. Wankel started to pack up her supplies of watercolors, brushes, pencils and papers from the artist supply shop.
“I want them to know what real artist colors look like and what professional paper feels like,” Wankel had explained earlier. As Emily collected her creations, she shared the happy accident from the watercolor experiment. “I spilled water on my art but then I just poured it off and it was so beautiful.”
That’s what happens when a young woman cares enough to create a new program in the park. Beautiful minds grow creative optimism!
Follow Wankel’s Facebook group called “Art in the Park” to learn more about these pop-ups or discover how your child can join a four-week class this summer which includes a personal supply of artist-grade items to keep downtime creative at home.

The Philip Simmons High School baseball team’s success on the diamond is reflected in the postseason honors.
Two Iron Horse standouts, senior Tripp Williams and junior Grayson Mitchell, were recently named to the state coaches association’s all-state team. It marked the second straight season the Iron Horses had two players earn all-state honors.
Williams, a talented catcher for Josh Kubisz’s squad, repeats as an all-state selection. The 6-4, 220-pound senior arguably might be the best male athlete in the school’s brief history.
Williams also earned all-state as the Iron Horses’ quarterback after leading the Iron Horses to an 11-2 record.
Williams, who will play football at The Citadel in the fall, has collected 30 hits in 82 at-bats this spring for a .366 batting average. He has 10 extra-base hits including eight doubles. He’s collected 25 RBI in 27 games.
Williams also was solid as a catcher with a .955 fielding average. He’s thrown out seven of 16 base runners this spring.
Mitchell leads the Iron Horses in five major offensive categories: batting average, on-base percentage, stolen bases, runs and hits.
Mitchell is batting .459 with a .562 on-base percentage and has 34 hits in 74 at-bats with four extra-base hits. He’s scored 39 runs and has driven in 21 while stealing 12 bases.
Kubisz praised Mitchell’s skills at third base.
“He’s the smoothest third baseman I’ve ever coached or played with,” said Kubisz, who played high school ball at Goose Creek and Penn State Greater Allegheny at the college level.
Philip Simmons, 20-10, travels to Kershaw on Wednesday night to play Andrew Jackson in the Class AA Lower State Championship. The Iron Horses need two victories over Andrew Jackson in the double-elimination series to reach the State Championship Series for the
first time in the school’s brief history.
Bishops, Iron Horses soccer
The Bishop England and Philip Simmons girls’ soccer teams had successful seasons as both teams reached the Lower State Championship in their respective classes.
Bishop England reached the Class AAA Lower State Championship, but dropped a 2-0 decision to Oceanside Collegiate Academy.
The Bishops started the 2022 season slowly under new coach Netha Kreamer, but finished with a 12-6 record, including 7-3 in Region 8-AAA play.
The Bishops were 2-1 against OCA in the regular season, winning two of the matches on penalty-kick shootouts.
Meanwhile, Philip Simmons reached the Class AA state semifinals, but dropped a 3-0 decision to Christ Church. The Iron Horse girls finished with an 11-7-1 record.
