Greg Baltyn, SC-SYRA and the SRC have selected and arranged for eight (8) South Carolina referees to travel to Round Rock, TX to officiate and support the 2019 Region III President’s Cup.
The President’s Cup begins on 11 JUN, with round robin play, and championship matches on 16 JUN, Sunday. Greg will accompany our referees.
Our South Carolina referees are:
Sara Griggs, grade 7 from Sumter/Midstate
Paige Bell, grade 8 from Rock Hill
Rhett Stevens, grade 8 from Charleston
Owen Petersen, grade 7 from the Midstate
Jack Collins, grade 7 from the Midstate, 2017 Male Youth Referee of the Year
Noah Haver, grade 7 from the Upstate, 2018 Male Youth Referee of the Year
Aldemar Jimenez, grade 7 from the Upstate, 2019 Male Youth Referee of the Year
Frank Kucinic, grade 6 from the Upstate
Outstanding referee performances are rewarded with recognition for top referees and assistant referees and selection for the National championship. Last year Sara was recognized for her President’s Cup efforts as was Frank. Frank was selected, attended and officiated the President’s Cup National Championship.
This is a dedicated, hard working group of referees. Many have upgraded and successfully passed the PRO PFT and, excluding, Frank 88% of our selectees have participated in the South Carolina Referee Pool, traveling, working as a team, partnering with assessor/mentors in a year long effort to develop, excel and improve.
All the best to our President’s Cup referees and Greg as they travel to Texas and represent South Carolina.
