  • Lewisville athletes collect more hardware

    The trophy cases and mantles in the Richburg area should be just about full by now.

  • Cyclones advance to finals...again

    Chester Coach Victor Floyd said his team hasn’t quite gotten over the hump yet…but they are at least on top of that hump.

    For the second time in two weeks, the Chester Cyclones football team took part in a big, multi-team 7-on-7 tournament and advanced all the way to the championship game. Unfortunately, for the second straight week, the team also lost in the finals.

  • Cyclones and Lions show well in Columbia

    The Chester Cyclones advanced to the finals of the Will Muschamp 7-on-7 tournament Friday in Columbia and the Lewisville Lions inflicted the only loss of the day on eventual champion Greenville High School. Imagine if either had been at full strength.

    Chester tore through pool play, posting a 4-0-1 record with wins over Blythewood, Westwood. Laurens and Berkeley. The tie came against Byrnes in a game that Coach Victor Floyd said his team should have won.

  • Red Devils already off to a great start

    Scotty Steen hasn’t had to see his players on the football field to know he has some talent to work with at Great Falls…since he’s seen many of them on the basketball court.

    “It’s amazing to see them stronger, faster and jumping higher out there,” he said.

  • Cycs, Lions open summer 7-on-7 work

    There were some mistakes but there were also some big plays…so it was a typical first 7-on-7 competition of the summer.

    On Tuesday, Lewisville, Clover and Rock Hill came to Chester High School for a few hours of pitch-and-catch. With the possibility of the Cyclones and Lions meeting during today’s big 7-on-7 tournament at the University of South Carolina, the two local teams didn’t face one another, but both got in a lot of work in the first passing session of the summer.

  • Fourney picks up first offer from Liberty

    If the players in front of him weren’t so good, Mikial Fourney might have gotten attention earlier.

    The Lewisville senior football standout is definitely getting attention now, having secured his first offer Monday from Liberty University. Lions Coach Will Mitchell said he feels certain that with a productive summer of camps, Fourney will eventually have a lot of offers to choose from.

  • Lions receive more honors

    A website dedicated to coverage of high school baseball has confirmed what most local fans already know…Lewisville was a very good baseball team in 2017.

    Diamond Prospects (TheDiamondProspects.com) recently handed out post-season awards and a number of Lions players were honored. Senior Drew Colvin was named by the site as being the top pitcher in Class A baseball. Colvin posted a 9-1 record with a 0.65 ERA and 87 strikeouts this past season. Coming in third on that list was teammate Trey Keels. On the mound, Keels was 9-0 with a 1.12 ERA.

  • Lewisville claims its first Carlisle Cup

    It is considered an award for a school’s athletic director, but Lewisville’s Rusty Pemberton said it wouldn’t be coming to Lewisville without the contributions of a lot of people.

  • Tunnall gets first offer

    When college recruiters ask Chester Coach Victor Floyd “who else has offered” in relation to offensive lineman Wyatt Tunall, he now has an answer.

    Tunall, who will only be a junior this coming season, picked up his first college offer on Thursday from Troy University in Alabama. The Trojans had a big year in 2016, posting a 10-3 record and earning a spot in the Dollar General Bowl.

  • Lady Lions rake in post-season honors

    They won a lot of games during the regular season, so it’s no surprise they’re winning lots of post-season honors now.
