Baseball Tryout – Rainout Plan

Rain is forecasted for tonight and tomorrow.  I will post a cancellation on the website if necessary so keep your eyes out for that.  If you don’t see a cancellation, that means we are still on.

In the event of a cancellation, both teams will try out on next Saturday.  Middle School and Junior Varsity will try out from 10:00 to 1:00 and the varsity tryout will be from 1:00 to 3:00.

Thanks and call me at 803-397-5483 if you have any questions.

PAC Soccer Update

Great News for the upcoming PAC soccer season!

Coach Andrew Christensen will be joining us again as the JV Boys coach for the 2015 soccer season.

After having gone through chemotherapy this summer, he is doing well and is looking forward to joining PAC again.


More exciting news is that Yonas Araya will be joining us as an assistant to the Varsity Boys and JV Boys.

Yonas Araya is originally from Eritrea (formerly part of Ethiopia) but has spent the last 20 years here in the states. He is an engineer whose Atlanta job has recently transferred him to the midlands.   As well as being an engineer, he is a defender for the Atlanta based team competing in the Eritrean Sports Federation of North America.  Yonas is
very knowledgeable about the game, and an excellent player who will bring a lot of energy and competitive play to our boys programs.  He is excited about working with PAC while furthering his coaching skills under Coach John Collins and Andrew Christensen.

Reminder about Baseball Tryouts – See you there

Baseball will hold its annual tryouts in September over two dates.  The varsity tryout (grades 10th – 12th) will be held at 10:00 on Saturday, September 13th.  The middle school / junior varsity tryout (grades 7th – 10th) will be held at 10:00 on Saturday, September 20th.  Both tryouts will be held at Bray Park; the Panthers home field located at 280 Bray Park Road, West Columbia, SC  29172.  Tryouts should last no more than two hours; however, the length of time will be dictated somewhat by the number of players participating in the tryouts. As before, all potential players should plan on attending at least one tryout.  If you are varsity age but can’t attend on the 13th, you must attend the tryout on the 20th and vice versa for the middle school / junior varsity players.  Further information about receiving an invitation to join the baseball program and fall practices will be available at the tryouts.  Please contact Jim Blevins at 803-397-5483 or at with any questions.  Look forward to seeing you there

Future Webmaster Needed

Are you techy or web-savy?

The website is a great avenue for all involved in PAC to know what is happening and for new folks to find out about more about what PAC has to offer.  In order to keep this valuable tool functioning, we will definitely need a volunteer to step up and use their gifts to serve in this capacity.

Stacey Dickinson has been PAC’s webmaster for the past 5 years and has done a FABULOUS job working with Ray Hewitt to get the PAC site up and keeping it current.  She will be graduating her son this May and will be stepping down but she is willing to have someone come along side her this year to be trained to take over when she leaves.

If you are interested in finding out more about this position please contact Stacey Dickinson at
