  • Sarduy preparing for college experience

    Obbie Sarduy isn't a college man yet, but he's already getting a taste of what life will be like when he heads to Francis Marion University to play baseball this fall.
    Sarduy, a recent Lewisville High School graduate, took part in the North-South All-Star Baseball game in June at Myrtle Beach, playing for the AAAA/A team.
    "It was great. I got to meet a whole bunch of new people and made some new friends," Sarduy said.
    That included athletes from Fox Creek and Dixie High School, both of which have become playoff rivals for the Lions.

  • A class of their own

    Increasingly, private and charter schools in South Carolina are in a class by themselves where athletics are concerned. The great thing about being in your own class is the ability to play by your own set of rules.

  • Cyclones and Lions back at it Thursday

    Thursday will be a long day for the Chester Cyclones...but in a good way.

  • Lions keep head above water at Brunswick

    The Lewisville Lions got thrown into the deep end of the pool at the recent Brunswick High (Ga.) 7-on-7 tournament but did what they had to do in that situation according coach Will Mitchell.
    "We showed we could swim," Mitchell said.
    The Lions went 5-5 in pool play before falling by two points to Spalding County High, a team the Lions actually defeated in pool play. Still, the overall showing was good given the circumstances.

  • Football schedules changing for local teams

  • Local AD warns of outside companies selling sports ads

Chester High School Athletic Director Ricky Campbell wants the public to know, however, that the companies have no working relationship with his school and that Chester High benefits in no way from those sales.

  • Lewisville sets summer schedule

    The Lewisville Lions will be on the field in three states this summer as they prep for the 2014 football season.
    The team is already going through workouts but players, or some of them, will actually hit the field this coming week. The team's linemen will take part in a linemen challenge on Thursday. On June 14, the skill position players will get their turn, going to Blythewood High School for a 7-on-7 tournament. Coach Mill Mitchell said that will serve as a real challenge.
