Do blondes have more fun?

On the Irmo High School Boys Soccer Team they apparently do.

While not the only team to sport blonde hair during the season, they certainly are some of the most recognizable ones in the area.

Tonight, the Yellowjackets play Northwestern for the Upper State Title and should then win, they’ll move on to face the Spring Valley / Wando winner for the AAAA State Championship.

Irmo’s coachCoach Phil Savitz has several State and National Coach of the Year honors to his name and is looking for a 16th State Championship this year.

The Yellowjackets are led on the field by Daniel Lynch, who has signed to play with USC next year (along with Dutch Fork’s Danny Cates).

Last year when Representative Chip Huggins and I presented Coach Savitz with a resolution honoring his 500th win, we made the comment that we would dye our hair blonde if they bring home a State Championiship this year.

We’re two games away from another State Championship! How would I look?

UPDATE (9:23 pm): Unfortunately, the home team lost tonight. Northwestern defeated Irmo 2-1.
