  • Division I-A title game postponed

    Due to an official protest by two South Carolina High School League member schools questioning the eligibility of a Bamberg-Ehrhardt High School varsity football player, the Class A- Division I football game, which was to feature Bamberg-Ehrhardt against Christ Church, has been postponed until a future date.
    The game was originally scheduled for noon this Friday at Benedict College.

  • Morris named to All-Freshman team

    Terrance Morris' freshman season was obviously worth waiting for.
    Morris, a former Chester High standout and now a member of the Wofford College football team, was named to the Southern Conference All-Freshman team on Tuesday.
    For the year, Morris had 49 tackles, 7.5 tackles-for-loss, four sacks and two forced fumbles for the 6-5 Terriers. His best statistical game came against Furman on November 15 when he piled up eight tackles, 2.5 tackles-for-loss, a sack and a forced fumble. He had a nine-tackle effort on November 8 against UT-Chattanooga.

  • Lady Lions open with narrow loss

    The Lewisville girls basketball team played its first game of the year Monday. York Prep played its third game of the year Monday and that made a big difference.
    York Prep defeated Lewisville 36-32 in Lewisville's pre-season tournament, pulling away late to claim the win. Lady Lions coach Rusty Pemberton said it was a typical early season effort.

  • For Lady Lions, talking is a good thing

    The column "We are in (serious) trouble" generated many comments in light of the insane events surrounding Nov. 4 and I must share them. However, before I do, I must also share some additional information as I learned a new word on Nov. 9 while looking up some other things. The new word is "balkanize."

  • The future is now for Sisk

    Lewisville baseball coach Billy Keels calls it the "Future Stars Camp" for a reason.
    On Monday, Lions baseball standout Evan Sisk signed to play college baseball at the College of Charleston. Long before he was on the radar of colleges and before he ever put on a Lewisville baseball uniform, Sisk was one of the dozens of kids who takes part in Keels' summer baseball camp. Sisk may not have stood out then as one of many children running bases and learning to swing a bat, but his future coach definitely made an impression on him.

  • Trojans pull away late, oust Red Devils

    For at least a night, the student was able to surpass the teacher in Ridge Spring-Monetta’s 33-21 victory over Great Falls Friday night.

    Ridge Spring head coach Heath Corley was a former player for Red Devils’ coach Kenneth Schofield when they were both at Hampton. Corley said after the game that Schofield is a major reason why he’s even coaching high school football.

    Schofield obviously did not want to lose the game but is pleased to see his former player have success on the sidelines.

  • McBee ends Lewisville's run

    Lewisville's senior class only won two football games in their last season with the Lions, but the group will be responsible for far more wins than that.
    "It might be two or three years down the road before we realize how important this group was," said Lewisville coach Will Mitchell. "They withstood a lot of adversity."
    The Lions got in the playoffs by winning their final two games of the regular season but bowed out Friday night with a 61-0 loss to the McBee Panthers.

  • FRIDAY NIGHT FINAL: Season ends for local teams

    Football season 2014 is over in Chester County as both Lewisville and Great Falls bowed out of the Class A playoffs.
    Lewisville, a number seven seed in the Division I playoffs, fell to second seed McBee 61-0. The Panthers scored on their first possession, going 51 yards in six plays. Dashonell Wright, who came into the game with more than 1,200 yards and 18 touchdowns, finished the march with a 32-yard scoring run for a 7-0 score.

  • Lions get another shot at Panthers

    The Lewisville Lions are obviously better team now than they were the first time they played McBee.
    "But McBee is also better," said Lions coach Will Mitchell.
    The two improved teams will meet for the second time this year tonight in the first round of the Class A Division I playoffs.
