  • Coach Conlan wins bet, by a hair

    A long, hard season can sometimes turn a coach's hair white. A good season almost did that to Chester wrestling coach Joe Conlan.
    Each year, Conlan makes a wager with his team. If they attain an agreed-upon level of success, he will perform a stunt of some kind. In past years Conlan has kissed a goat in front of the entire student body and allowed his head to be shaved. This year, he promised his team he would dye his hair "bleach blond" if four of his wrestlers qualified for the state tournament.

  • Slow start dooms Lady Cycs

    Their start, unfortunately, did not match their finish.

  • Southside Christian ousts Lions

  • Third annual sportsman's banquet is Saturday

    If you haven't already gotten your ticket to the annual Sportsman's Banquet presented by Outdoor Christian Ministry, you'll need to start making plans to attend next year, because this year's popular inspirational gathering of sportsmen from across Chester County, the third Annual event, is sold out.
    “We've been sold out for about a week now, and that's a very good thing,” said event coordinator Rog Rodgers.
    The banquet will be held February 21 beginning at 4:30 p.m. at Chester Freedom Ministries, 729 Village Drive, Chester.

  • Season ends for Red Devils

    Great Falls coach John Smith said it was pretty easy to pinpoint why his team ended up on the short end of things Wednesday night.
    "Thirty-nine points is not going to get it done," Smith said. "You're not going to hold a playoff quality team to 38 points."
    The season came to an end for the Red Devils with a 44-39 loss at Williston-Elko.
    Great Falls actually led throughout the first half. Smith said, though, that his team was never able to stretch the lead out far enough to feel comfortable.

  • Lions win, the Lewisville way

    After struggling with North High School for more than three quarters Wednesday, Lewisville found a way to pull away for a win. It was the Lewisville way.

  • PLAYOFFS: Lions win, Devils bow out

The Lions would get Calhoun Falls Charter at home but would have to go to Southside Christian.
    Elsewhere in the county, the Great Falls boys bowed out of the playoffs with a 44-39 loss to Williston-Elko.
