  • Cok, Alley still lighting it up

    Two former Chester County pitchers are putting together spectacular seasons and so are their respective teams.
    Josh Alley is a freshman on the Erskine College Baseball team. For the year, Alley has compiled a 3-2 record with one save in 15 appearances (seven starts) and has a 4.14 ERA. In 50 innings of work, he has 51 strikeouts, 21 walks and opponents are only hitting .259 against him. Erskine stands at 34-11 on the year, including a 20-4 mark in conference play.

  • Holmes' college career comes to an end

    His college basketball career came to an end Saturday, but Xavier Holmes didn't let it go without a fight.
    Holmes, the Great Falls native, and the Newberry Wolves men's basketball team had their season ended this weekend with a 105-81 loss to Lincoln in the semi-finals of the SAC basketball tournament. As was the case all season, Holmes did all he could to help keep his team in it, pouring in a team-best 16 points and snagging three rebounds. With the loss to the second-ranked team in Division II basketball, Newberry ended the year with an 18-12 record.

  • Preston Kirk notches win for Limestone

    He used to throw out lots of runners, now he's striking out batters.
    Preston Kirk, a Chester High graduate, is now pitching for the Limestone College baseball team. Working in relief, Kirk has pitched 4.2 innings this season and has struck out six batters. Opposing batters are hitting just .263 off of him so far this year.
    Kirk has already earned his first victory of the season, doing so with two innings of perfect relief against LIU on February 14. He fanned three batters in that appearance.

  • Wolves, Holmes stay alive with tournament win

    The season of the Newberry College Wolves basketball team and the college career of Great Falls graduate Xavier Holmes have been extended.

  • Holmes, Wolves start conference tournament play tonight

    Newberry College ended its regular season by losing three of its last five games, but it wasn't because of a lack of production from Xavier Holmes.
    Holmes, a senior from Great Falls, led Newberry in three statistical categories during the regular season. Holmes was the leading scorer for the Wolves (14.8 a game), led the team in shooting percentage by a wide margin (56 percent), and blocked shots (just a hair under one per game). He was second on the team in rebounding at 5.9 a contest.

  • Sisk, Alley pitching well for college teams

    To begin his college baseball career, Evan Sisk was thrown straight into the fire...and he didn't wilt.

  • Cok picks up first win

    The Randolph-Macon College baseball team is undefeated this year and so is Lewisville graduate Christian Cok.
    Cok, a sophomore pitcher at the Virginia College, notched his first win of the year Sunday. Randolph-Macon was deadlocked in a 3-3 tie with Rensselaer through six innings. Cok came on and pitched a perfect inning of relief, allowing no base runners while striking out two batters. The team managed to plate one run in the bottom of the seventh to claim the win and make Cok the winning pitcher.

  • Holmes continues solid play for Wolves

    Another big game from Xavier Holmes wasn't quite enough to extend Newberry College's winning streak.
    The Wolves fell at fourth-ranked Lincoln Saturday by a final score of 107-97 to snap a four-game winning streak. As he has done throughout his senior campaign, Holmes certainly did his part, scoring 16 points, pulling down two rebounds and adding an assist and a steal. Newberry dropped to 15-9 overall and 10-8 in conference play with the defeat.
