Fort Mill coach Ed Susi won’t miss the late-night math sessions that took place under the SCHSL’s old points system for determining playoff teams and seeding. But that system was pretty good to Fort Mill, which made the postseason several times as a wildcard thanks to its points totals.
With points out the window, the Yellow Jackets freshened up their schedule this coming fall, lining up several opponents they haven’t seen in a while, or ever, in the case of Spring Valley and Orangeburg-Wilkinson. The 2016 slate is still tough, though, for Fort Mill, which isn’t growing quite as fast as rival Nation Ford but is up to the 20th largest school in the state.
