  • Autry's rise no surprise to former coach

    Chester High graduate Trent Autry has gotten a lot of attention lately for his play at Florence Darlington Tech, but his former coach doesn’t understand why anybody is surprised.

    “I don’t see it as a surprise at all that he’s pitching so well,” said Chester High Baseball Coach Chris Powell, who coach Autry during his senior season. “He has a such a competitive nature. He gets on the mound and wants the ball in his hands. He never wanted to give the ball up and that’s a good thing.”

  • Feaster named "Legend of the Ivy League"

    It’s never been a stretch to call Allison Feaster a legend, but now its official.

    Feaster, the Chester High graduate, was part of the inaugural Legends of Ivy League Basketball induction class. She was honored during the league’s conference tournament last week.

  • Marshall named Conference POY

    Her season is over, but the awards will likely continue to roll in for Deja Marshall.

  • Former county aces pitch gems over the weekend

    During their prep baseball careers, Evan Sisk and Trent Autry were two of the most dominant pitchers in the state. That hasn’t changed now that they’ve moved onto college.

    Sisk, a Lewisville High graduate now playing at College of Charleston, and Autry, a Chester High graduate now at Florence Darlington Tech, each tossed a gem over the weekend.

  • Marshall still playing well for SMC

    Her team is struggling with wins and losses, but Chester graduate Deja Marshall is doing anything but struggling individually.

    Marshall, a freshman at Spartanburg Methodist College, is continuing to put up impressive stats this season. Her team is currently on a three-game skid, but Marshall posted 21 points and six rebounds in a loss to Louisburg, 16 points and nine rebounds in a loss to Combine College and 21 points and four rebounds in a defeat to Catawba Valley Community College.

  • Marshall continues big season at SMC

    Most college athletes go through a bit of an adjustment period during their freshmen years, as they learn to compete against older, better players and grasp new coaching and concepts. If Deja Marshall had an adjustment period, it didn’t last very long.

  • Langford lands walk-on spot with Gamecocks

    He’s gotten a lot bigger over the past few years and it’s led to a bigger opportunity for Mitch Langford.

  • Where the Blue Ridge yawns its greatness...

    Chester’s Sam Frazer has a nickname for Clemson wide receiver Hunter Renfrow.

    “He’s one of those players, he’s just money. We started calling him ‘Money’ actually,” said Frazer, a Clemson graduate and fan.

    It came as little surprise to Frazer then that Renfrow cashed in one of the biggest touchdowns in Tiger’s history.

  • Terrance Morris comes up big for Terriers again

    The Wofford Terriers are playing in the second round of the FCS playoffs Saturday and Chester’s Terrance Morris is a big reason why.
