The Greenville High Tigers roared to a solid victory over the Headland Rams this past Friday 40-8. The game never was in question for the Tigers as they dominated both sides of the ball in a convincing Homecoming game victory. Standouts for Greenville’s offense were running back Arick Boggan and receiver Malik Bunch. Defensively, defensive back Tyrone Ingram had an interception and Jeremiah Owens recovered a fumble. Before the game, Greenville held lead-out of the Homecoming maids and presentation of Homecoming Queen. Miss Hanna Nichols, pictured above with her father Stewart Nichols, was selected as Homecoming Queen.
