Georgetown students remember classmate, teammate who drowned last summer

GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) – Athletes and students at Georgetown High School came together to honor one of their own who drowned last summer.

Courtney Dorsey, a 16-year-old who drowned in the ocean off Pawleys Island trying to save his brother on July 3, was honored between the boys and girls games Friday evening.

Dorsey's 13-year-old brother was saved in the incident, but Courtney's body never came ashore.

Participants wore T-shirts featuring a photo of Dorsey and the words "Lost At Sea, Found in Heaven." His No. 25 jersey was retired during the ceremony.
