EMORY, Va. – Needing to push the game into a second overtime period, the nationally ninth-ranked Newberry College (3-0, 1-0 SAC) football team was able to take home the hard-fought 26-23 win over Emory & Henry in their first South Atlantic Conference contest of the season.
Redshirt-sophomore Mario Anderson (Summerville, S.C.) scampered for 101 yards on the day on 16 carries, including the game winning touchdown in the second overtime. Graduate student Dre Harris (Greenville, S.C.) picked up 52 yards on the ground while accounting for 182 through the air and a touchdown. That touchdown was to graduate student Deshun Kitchings (Aiken, S.C.) who only accounted for two receptions on that afternoon for 77-yards.
Junior Luke Taylor (Summerville, S.C.) led the Wolves defensively with eight total tackles on the afternoon including one sack in overtime for a six-yard loss. Senior Devante Gambrell (Anderson, S.C.) notched seven tackles in the contest and recorded a sack for nine yards. Junior Carson Smith (Abbeville, S.C.) was able to force a fumble while redshirt-junior Melvin Lundy (Sumter, S.C.) led the defensive backfield with a pair of pass breakups.
The Wolves waited no time getting on the board as after a near first-down gaining rush by Anderson, Harris found Kitchings in one-on-one coverage down the left sideline and hit him in stride for a 62-yard strike to give the Wolves the 7-0 lead just 38 seconds into the contest. The two teams would trade three-and-outs before Emory & Henry was able to methodically drive down the field to pull even with the Wolves at seven.
Newberry would put three more points on the board on their next drive as redshirt-senior Lawson Reel (Johnston, S.C.) was able to hit from 23-yards out and give the Wolves the 10-7 lead. Reel would be called upon for the first score of the second quarter for Newberry as well as in their second drive of the he would knock a 25-yard attempt through the uprights and extend their lead to 13-7. The Wasps would convert on their field goal attempt on the next drive to pull the score to 13-10, a margin that would hold to the halftime break.
The Wolves would force the Wasps to turn over the ball on downs on their first drive of the second half as a sack on fourth down by redshirt-senior Craig Barksdale (Easley, S.C.) gave the Wolves the ball on their own 36. A deep pass from Harris to graduate student Bryson Woodruff (Roebuck, S.C.) for 49-yards set the Wolves power formation up on the one-yard line where Harris would punch in it in and extend the Newberry advantage to 20-10.
The Wasps responded again with a touchdown of their own on their next drive and would kick the fourth quarter off with a field goal conversion to level the game at 20. The two teams traded scoreless drives before the Wolves would set themselves up in prime position to win the game with the ball and just over two minutes left in the contest. However, a forced turnover in the red zone brought that drive to a halt and forced the overtime period.
Both sides set-up for field goals in the opening overtime period with the Wasps having the opportunity to win the contest, however both sides missed their conversions and they moved into a second overtime period. This time a three-and-out for the Wasps would set-up a 40-yard field goal attempt that they would knock through the uprights to take the 23-20 lead. Newberry however would only need to run three plays in the second overtime period, all three rushes by Anderson that was capped off by an 11-yard touchdown run up the middle to secure the 26-23 win.
Newberry returns home next weekend after their two-week road trip as they welcome in the Flying Fleet of Erskine College to Setzler Field for a 6:00 p.m. kick.

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCSC) - For many people, when they first hear they have Parkinson’s Disease, it can be scary and worrisome. But, a group of people attending a boxing class called Rock Steady Boxing in Summerville, say it’s helping slow the progression of the disease.
Dennis Tianello has been coming to Rock Steady Boxing at Title Boxing in Nexton for two months now.
“My doctor, when I was first diagnosed and everything, I couldn’t walk to his exam room without touching the wall four or five times in the hallways,” Tianello said. “I went back to see him after doing this for a month and he says ‘Dennis, I watched you walk down the hall way. You didn’t even touch the wall.”
Parkinson’s is a progressive disorder that affects motor movement. Through this boxing class, folks say they’ve seen their balance, coordination, and strength improve.
Annie Barra, the lead trainer at Title Boxing, says they recognize the disease is still there, but the program helps slows it down.
“They box and they move around and we challenge them to different things,” Barra said. “It’s a great group of people and it brings them together where they may have felt uncomfortable, we make it comfortable.”
Paul Werksman was diagnosed with Parkinson’s about two months ago, even though he says he had many symptoms long before that. When he got his diagnosis, he started attending Rock Steady Boxing.
“Just being able to work it out and get better myself,” Werksman said. “I know I’ve lost my voice quit a bit. That’s why Don has us speaking very loudly.”
While it’s completely non-contact boxing, Bob Rodenkirk says one of his favorite things in the class is when he gets to go one-on-one with an instructor.
“They’ll get one of those belts on and they’ll say okay, give me everything you’ve got, don’t hold back,” Rodenkirk said. “And boom, boom, boom, boom.”
Rodenkirk says he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s five years ago. He says this boxing class has helped him stabilize things and has helped him feel normal.
The instructor of the class, Donald Wright, says they do more than just boxing. The goal is to get these folks moving and exercising, which is something doctors tell many people with Parkinson’s to do.
“We have a bend, lift, stretch, voice, you toss balls, stack cones, lift, weights, get on the floor, planks, push ups, sit ups if you can,” Wright said.
Rodenkirk says he’s been surprised by the impacts he’s had from Rock Steady Boxing.
“My doctors told me, you’re not going to lose if you try boxing,” Rodenkirk said. “You may think it sounds stupid or I’m just gonna get pounded, but it’s not that at all.”
Many of the fighters added that Rock Steady Boxing has been a great way for them to build new friendships and realize they aren’t alone in their Parkinson’s journey.
The class is held three days a week. Title Boxing owner Chris Bowen says they are always accepting new members. He added that anyone with Parkinson’s Disease interested in joining can come watch a class before attending. More information on the gym can be found on their website.

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCSC) - Dorchester District 2 leaders say they are still short 12 bus drivers but have 20 applicants in the pipeline as of Monday.
This bus driver shortage has caused many students to be late to school and even led to a new bell schedule for middle and high schools.
District Superintendent Dr. Shane Robbins says with many drivers in the pipeline and a new bell schedule, this shortage will hopefully get resolved.
“The shift in the bell schedules really is a reversion back to what we used last year,” Robbins said. “Really it was designed so that we can maximize instructional time, but it doesn’t reduce the amount of times students have access to lunch or in their classes and that’s the reason why we did that.”
District Transportation Director Steve Shope says people applying to be a bus driver must take an academic class with the district, get a learner’s permit with the DMV, obtain a commercial driver’s license two weeks after that, and take a certification exam by the State Department of Education. He says the entire process takes about a month.
“That have credentials, I think I got four that have credentials that were getting through the class that’s going to finish this Wednesday,” Shope said. “And then we got to put them in the seat for a few hours and we think we can get them running by Monday morning. So, that will definitely help us.”
When asked about an incentive to keep these drivers in the district, Shope says there’s only a promise of a year’s step increase in salary as long as they drive the required number of days.
Dr. Kenneth Wilson, who is the district office’s assistant superintendent, says there were 13 additional drivers out for illness or other reasons on top of the 12 drivers short on Monday. He says he wants the parents to know the district is listening.
“We’ve heard everything that you’ve said, and we are definitely working on that,” Wilson said. So, we do want to thank you for your cooperation and your flexibility as we work through this process.”
One board member said parents should contact [email protected] if any bus transportation issues arise.
Aside from the transportation update, the district will be making 30 minutes of unencumbered time required for elementary school teachers next year on Oct. 1. This will cause the district to hire supervisors to watch the students during this time. Paying their salaries will cost the district about $548,100.
District leaders also say they are not in favor of mandating lockers for middle and high school students. They say they’ve realized a lot of textbooks have gone online and they’ve seen an overall decrease in the students using lockers too. They also say they want less access for storing any potential contraband in the schools.
For more information on the Sept. 12 meeting, visit the district’s website.

Berkeley County Council gave unanimous approval to change zoning lines paving the way for more residential housing. One area set to be developed is at the corner of a busy intersection and another will cut an additional swath of land along, what once was a rural stretch, now pocked with the tightly packed subdivisions.
As locals grow increasingly frustrated with population growth without the infrastructure to tame it, more homes and complexes are coming soon. At the Sept. 8, Berkeley County Council meeting, members voted to allow rezoning along Highway 17 at College Park Road and along Cypress Gardens Road.
Council bill 22-62 will permit more building on Cypress Gardens Road. The 65-acre parcel will contain 91 homes. The site also includes 26 acres of wetlands to be preserved. But with all the construction in the area rain runoff has become a growing problem some residents.
The rezoning request was first proposed at a June 28, planning commission meeting in Moncks Corner.
“We have a serious water problem in this situation,” said Wayne Hucks, to the committee. He lives near the development site. “So if they build a subdivision all this water, I don’t where it’s going to go. Every time we get rain my yard floods,” he said.
In response Ryan Brown, who spoke for the developer, told the commission the flooding issue is on the radar and the company will work to take care of any potential issues when it comes to runoff.
“We always look at adjacent properties, the last thing we want to do is effect anybody in a negative way who are adjacent to us or downstream from us,” said Brown, to the county planning commission.
It took just three months from the first public proposal to getting the green light on the work. It was a different story with council bill 20-18. That plan has been kicked around since first being proposed in February of this year.
The undeveloped 12.5-acre piece sits at a, business dense corner, of Highway 17 and College Park Road and is already burdened with heavy traffic. County documents show it was first considered as a site for a Lowes store, but the plan was abandoned.
Now the rezoning allows a residential complex to be built there. The proposal shows 278 living units are permitted inside a cluster of 12 separate buildings. The work and its footprint will no doubt create a stir, but it is coming.
“I wanted the lesser of all evils,” said Berkeley County council member Tommy Newell who represents the area, which contains portions of Goose Creek and Summerville.
“As you are aware and the public is fully aware, property like that is not going to go undeveloped.”
Newell said the site could have contained a retail store and a gas station which he believes would have been far worse than what is to come.
“I wanted to find what was in the best interest of the community,” said Newell. “If it was going to be developed what would be the best thing?”
“We’re all tired of growth, but we have to be responsible when it’s in our face.”
The complex will offer access to both College Park Road and Highway 17. Newell added that at this time there are now plans in the works for road or intersection widening to accommodate the extra traffic flow.

Hey Summervillians, have you heard the news? A new 20,000-sqft library is coming soon to Oakbrook, and we can’t wait grab a library card and check it out.
The Oakbrook Library at the Ashley River broke ground last week in this fast-growing neighborhood, which has experienced a recent population + business boom.
Funding for the project was supported by a 2019 bond referendum voted for by citizens. The county considers this project to be an investment in the community. Look forward to both traditional and modern library services at the new digs.
SeamonWhiteside, a site design firm with offices in Mt. Pleasant and Summerville, joined the project team and will be completing the land planning, civil engineering, and landscape architecture for the library. The firm will work closely with architecture and design firm McMillan Pazdan Smith. Also on the team are RMF Engineering, ADC Engineering, and HITT Contracting.The library is not the only thing Dorchester County has to celebrate. Ashley River Park recently opened on the banks of the Ashley River off of Bacon’s Bridge Road. This 80+ acre park features dog parks, playground and picnic areas, and a walking trail for community members to enjoy. Here’s the cool part: The park is located across the street from the upcoming library.
Oakbrook Library is expected to be completed late next year, so mark your calendars and book it to 2830 Bacons Bridge Rd. when it opens. In the meantime, we’ll keep an eye out for updates.
