Three-peat for Whittle

Former Strasburg High School basketball standout Jeff Whittle continues to excel in the high school coaching ranks.

On Feb. 26, Whittle guided First Christian Baptist School's varsity boys basketball team to its third consecutive South Carolina Independent Schools Class AA state championship.

Whittle's Hurricanes had to work for the victory against Spartansburg Christian, but held on for a 51-48 victory. It was First Baptist's third straight state championship victory over Spartansburg Christian.

Under Whittle's guidance, the Hurricane posted a solid 24-7 mark despite playing a challenging schedule which included wins over SCISA Class AAA defending state champion Pinewood Prep and SCISA Class A champ Palmetto Christian.

Whittle is a 1999 graduate of Strasburg who later enjoyed a standout collegiate basketball career at NCAA Division II Presbyterian College. He is in his third year coaching at First Baptist, and now has three state championships to his credit.
