  • Bradshaw signs with Salkehatchie

    In the summer between his sophomore and junior years, Lewisville's Austin Bradshaw did not play travel baseball. It made him a much better baseball player.
    Bradshaw, now a senior, signed Thursday to play at USC-Salkehatchie.
    Bradshaw was called up from the Lions JV team late in his 10th-grade year. At the time, Lewisville coach Billy Keels didn't know if he had a contributor on his hands or not.
    "I didn't know how much he would help us," Keels said.

  • McCullough signs with OC Tech

    The first time Lewisville football coach Will Mitchell got a look at Tyrone McCullough, he didn't necessarily see a big-time athlete.
    "The best word you could use to describe him was pudgy," Mitchell said.
    McCullough shed that look a long time ago, obviously, since he'll now have the chance to play college football. He signed Thursday with Orangeburg-Calhoun Tech.

  • Cyclones are getting better

    The Chester football team is better this spring than it was during the winter. Coach Victor Floyd hopes they'll be better this summer than they are in the spring.
    The Cyclones are wrapping up the spring today with the annual Cyclone Fan Fest which, among other things, will feature a Red and White game. Floyd said the tightly controlled scrimmage-like action will run for about an hour, featuring some 7-on-7 work and about 50 plays. He wants to get through the session healthy, give his team a little time off, then get after it full-bore this summer.

  • Latta forces deciding game three

    Lewisville and Latta didn't just play a game of baseball Wednesday, they played a game of role reversal.

On Wednesday, Lewisville had its ace on the mound, committed an inordinate numbe of errors and lost on its home field by a 6-2 score.
    "This game reminded me of Monday in reverse," said Lions coach Billy Keels.

  • Kelly wins bronze at state meet, several named all-state

    Great Falls' Shyheim Kelly won a bronze medal in the high jump at the state track meet on Saturday, meaning he's the third-best Class A high jumper in the state. That's not too bad considering he took up the sport in Marsh.
    Kelly was the county's lone medal winner at the meet, held at Spring Valley High School. He's always been a football and basketball player but only took up track and field this year. He says he did so to help prepare himself for his next athletic step.

  • Lions one win from state title

    With a 1-0 lead in the Class A state baseball title series, the present looks good for Lewisville...and the future might be even better.
    With senior ace Evan Sisk having pitched Friday and ticketed to go in game two of the state finals, Lions coach Billy Keels turned to a pair of sophomores Monday in Trey Keels and Drew Colvin. The two were able to out-duel Latta's Select All-Star selection J.K. Love in a 9-3 victory.

  • Lions advance to state with win over McBee

    It took a little longer than they'd hoped, but the Lewisville Lions are headed back to the Class A state championship series.
    The Lions went into Friday's upperstate finals against McBee with a perfect playoff record. To advance to state, the Panthers had to beat the Lions twice. They got halfway there, beating Lewisville 2-1 in the opening game, but the Lions roared back in game two, jumping out to an early lead and winning 9-2.
