AND AT NUMBER ONE…

Greenville Road WarriorsGREENVILLE, SC The Greenville Road Warriors‘ countdown of the top moments from their inaugural season has reached its pinnacle. Today the team revealed its top moment from the 2010-11 campaign.

The Greenville Road Warriors entered the 2011 Kelly Cup Playoffs as the top seed in the Eastern Conference and earned the right to play the eighth seeded Elmira Jackals.
