  • Lady Cyclones lose extra-inning thriller

    The Chester softball team left everything it had on the field Tuesday night. Unfortunately, the team also left a lot runners on base.
    The Lady Cyclones outplayed the defending state champion Union County Lady Jackets from start to finish. The big difference was the inability to get a big hit with runners on base, but coach Douglas Josey said "some little things" also played a part as Chester fell by a 2-1 score in eight innings.

  • Cyclones win big again

    The Union County Yellow Jackets had a little better luck against Chester on Tuesday that Lancaster had on Friday...they got a hit.
    For the second straight game, the Cyclones baseball team absolutely routed its competition, scoring its second-straight 12-0, five-inning victory.

  • Chester soccer winning now, building for later

    The new coaching staff for the Chester boys soccer team is laying the foundation for success in the future, but that doesn't mean they aren't having some success now, too.
    The Cyclones are 3-4 so far this season and have won three of their past four contests. The three wins is one more than the team had last year and the losses have been competitive, including a tough 1-0 defeat to Broome on Tuesday.

  • Cycs roll to 12-0 win over Lancaster

    Chester baseball coach Chris Powell said his team put it all together Friday night. In the process, they took Lancaster apart.
    The Cyclones rolled to a huge region win against the Bruins, shutting them out 12-0 in five innings.
    Chester got right to work, taking a 3-0 lead in the home-half of the first. Jake Wright was hit by a pitch, then Trent Autry singled to put two runners on. Josh Alley did the rest, blasting his third home run of the season over the left field fence.

  • Lions sweep double-header

    After suffering a couple of close losses last week, Lewisville got back on track with a double-header sweep of Lakewood on Saturday.
    In the first game, the Lions won by a 4-0 score. Austin Bradshaw pitched all five innings, yielding only three hits while striking out five. He had now given up just one run in his last 12 innings of work. He also had a good day at the plate, drilling a double. Drew Colvin had a two-out, two-run single for Lewisville.

  • Lady Lions defend their turf, title

    It seems appropriate that the annual Lewisville Lady Lions Invitational Tournament was won this weekend by the Lewisville Lady Lions.
    Lewisville went 3-1 in the tourney to win the title and continue their recent hot streak.
    Lewisville opened with a 3-2 win over AAA South Pointe. Lewisville was down 2-0 after two and it was a 2-2 game when the Lady Lions finally pushed the winning run across in the fifth.
    Madison Vinson was the winning pitcher, striking out one and allowing just two earned runs. Tamya Davis knocked in two runs in the contest for Lewisville.

  • Equal treatment?

    Private schools are apparently upset by the "multiplier" plan that was approved by the South Carolina High School League last week and will seek to have it overturned on legal grounds. Certainly, someone does need to step in and make things right.

  • Cyclones fall to Cougars

    Getting runners on base wasn't a problem for Chester on Wednesday, but getting them home was.
    The Cyclones lost to York by a 10-4 score.
    York manufactured one run in the first inning. Adam Hoffman led off with a single, moved up on a passed ball, was sacrificed to third and scored on a sacrifice groundout. Chester got runners to second and third in the first, but stranded them there. Tyler Jordan, drew a lead-off walk for the Cyclones in the second, stole second and got to third on a wild pitch, but Chester couldn't get the hit it needed to plate him.

  • Lady Lions rout Foxes, Wolverines

    The only drama on the field for the Lewisville Lady Lions the last few times out has been whether their games will be stopped on the 10-run rule.
    The Lions won over Lamar and Whitmire this week by a combined score of 25-2. On Tuesday, they handled the Lady Silver Foxes 10-0. Lewisville jumped out to a 3-0 first inning lead and scored in every inning thereafter other than the fifth. When the Lady Lions made it 10-0 in the home half of the sixth, the contest was stopped.
