The Viking Arena wasn’t a very nice host to the Gaffney HS Indians last evening. Spartanburg HS took it to the Indians last night and walked away with a 61-38 victory. Spartanburg HS jumped out to a 20-12 lead after the first quarter. The Vikings cruised to 39-21 halftime lead and never looked back. The Vikings moved to (6-7) on the season while the Indians fall to (6-9). 

Balanced Attack:

Seniors Stepping Up: #RecruitThePalmettoState

Josh Linder Josh Linder 6'8" | PF Spartanburg | 2022 State SC worked around the paint for the Vikings and was able to alter and challenge shots on the defensive end. Linder a left-handed forward project to be a rim-runner at the next level. Josh still must get stronger and be able to play through contact. Linder was averaging 10.4 ppg, 6.8 rebounds and 3.8 blocks entering the game.
