  • Playoff update
  • Twitty makes it count

    Great Falls' Christian Twitty made his first varsity touchdown count.
    "In our first game of the year (against Blacksburg), it was 7-6 and we didn't have seven," said Great Falls football coach Kenneth Schofield. "Christian ran a fly route and caught one down the sidelines for a touchdown. We went on to win our first seven games, so that really kicked off our year."

  • Culp makes an impression

    Chris Culp made a big impression on college coaches this past season. He might have left an impression on some opposing players too.
    Culp, a three-sport standout at Great Falls, signed Thursday to play football at Presbyterian College.
    Culp stands 6-foot-1, weighs 225 pounds and bench presses over 300 pounds. He was actually an all-region and all-state performer at quarterback, but he also started at linebacker. He said Great Falls coach Kenneth Schofield had told him for a while he'd probably be a linebacker at the next level, but that's just fine with him.

  • Putting the Lewis in Lewisville

    Long before he became a head coach for Great Falls' chief rival, Patrick Lewis already wanted to beat the Red Devils.
    Lewis, who spent this past season as an assistant coach for Lewisville's boys basketball team and head coach of the boys JV squad was named head coach the Lady Lions on Monday. This is his first varsity head-coaching job.

  • Cyclones party like it's 1982

    It's been four since Chester baseball coach Chris Powell has been clean-shaven and 33 years since the Cyclones baseball team won an outright region title...or it had been until Friday.
    Chester clinched a first-place finish in Region III-AAA and sewed up a number one playoff seed in the process with a 9-1 victory over Union County.

  • AG opinion: Private school plan not legal

    An opinion from South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson indicates that a measure forcing private and charter schools to play up in terms of athletic classification runs afoul of state law.
    "While only a court may so conclude, it is our opinion that it would likely find that the proposed change in policy by the South Carolina High School League violates State law," the opinion reads.
