  • Sanders takes hands-on approach with Lady Cycs

    For years, seeing Jasmine Sanders practicing in the Chester High gymnasium was a common sight. Now, five years after her high school graduation, it is again.
    Sanders, who was named the new coach of the Cyclones girls team earlier this year, is taking a very hands-on approach to her new job. It is not uncommon at all to see her on the floor, competing with current players.

  • Cyclones want to finish strong

    The Chester boys basketball team took the floor for its first scrimmage of the year Tuesday at Rock Hill. The Cyclones found their rhythm and were playing their best basketball at the end. Coach Sebastian Hopkins hopes the season plays out the same way.
    "This was a learning experience. I saw some good, some bad. We're still rotating guys in-and-out and working to find the right chemistry right now," Hopkins said.

  • Football flavor comes to Chester wrestling

    Football season has been over for a couple of weeks at Chester High School, but you'd have a tough time believing that if you looked in the Chester gym most afternoons.
    Wrestling season is close to beginning and coach Joe Conlan has a record number of athletes out for the team this year. Right now, Conlan has 35 wrestlers, up from his normal number of 20 to 25. More than half of those are football players. Conlan credits Victor Floyd, Cyclones football coach, and his assistant Chris Dodson for the influx.

  • Council moves on three economic development projects

    Three new industries are apparently moving toward calling Chester County home.

  • McCrorey wants to build a program at Lewisville

    Tearia McCorey doesn't just want to build a winning team this season at Lewisville, she wants to build a program that can compete for years to come.
    McCrorey is in her first year as the head coach of the Lady Lions basketball team and her first year as a varsity coach. The young coach will have a young team this year...in fact, she'll have a young team next year too. This year's roster features two seniors and no juniors.
    "We are heavy with freshmen and sophomores this season," McCrorey said.

  • McCray says Lions ready to take next step

    Lewisville boys basketball coach Michael McCray believes you get in shape to play basketball, you don't play basketball to get in shape. Either way, you have to be to play for him.
    "We almost do military-style conditioning," McCray said. "It's a lot more than running. If guys can make it through our conditioning drills, they deserve a spot on the team."

  • Season ends for Lewisville Lions

    The odds of winning a game at Christ Church are long, especially when the field they are working on is short.
    It was a competitive game that remained very close into the third quarter, but the four-time defending state champion Cavaliers eliminated the Lewisville Lions in the opening round of the Class A Division I playoffs 35-13 Friday. Christ Church began all five of its scoring drives in Lewisville territory.

  • Wright signs with Gamecocks

    Joe Hudak spent a few minutes Wednesday talking about how special Jake Wright is as a person and a baseball player. He then motioned toward the National Letter of Intent sitting in front of Wright.
    "I think somebody wants your autograph," he joked.
    One day, a lot of people might want it.

  • Lions looking to erase recent history

    Lewisville faces Christ Church in the opening round of the Division I Class A football playoffs tonight. Lions Coach Will Mitchell wants his team focused, but not so  much on what's printed on the front of the opponents' jersey.
    "We need to focus on ourselves and what we're doing," Mitchell said.

  • Great Falls ends football season

    The Great Falls football team earned a spot in the Class A playoffs, but they won't be taking it.
    On Tuesday night, coach Kenneth Schofield took up uniforms and ended the season. The Red Devils, who went 1-9 this year and were a number seven seed in the Class A Division II playoffs, were to have played McCormick in the the first round Friday, but the numbers problem that has plagued the team all year finally reached a critical stage.
