PHS inducts latest hall of fame class

Pickens High School inducted two new members into its athletic hall of fame at halftime of the Blue Flame’s Oct. 25 football game against Blue Ridge. Former PHS multi-sport stars Erin Winchester Hunter and Alex Gettys were honored as the 2013 inductees. Hunter played multiple sports at Pickens, including lettering in volleyball five years, before signing to play at Presbyterian College. Gettys played both basketball and football for the Blue Flame, earning All-State honors and being named to the North-South All-Star Game on the gridiron. He went on to play for The Citadel.
