High School

  • Local teams ready to begin region play

    The high school basketball season is more than a month old, but it really starts tonight.

  • An Army of One...Lion

    It’s a chance for a local player to shine on a big stage, but it’s also a bit of a sneak peak into the future for Clemson football fans.

    The annual Army All-American Game is Saturday in San Antonio, Texas and among those on the roster for the East team is Lewisville’s Josh Belk. With Belk already having graduated and slated to enroll in classes at Clemson next week, this will be his final game as a high school athlete.

  • Chester names interim baseball coach

    Chester High School didn’t look for a new baseball coach for very long…they didn’t look very far either.

  • Devils bounce back with blowout win

    After suffering their first loss of the season last Friday, Great Falls bounced back in a big way with a 63-41 blowout of AA Buford on Tuesday.

  • Cyclones head into break with a win

    The Chester boys basketball team finished the pre-region portion of its schedule the same way it began it…with a win.

    The Cyclones went on the road Wednesday night and came away with a 69-55 victory over Clinton. Chester had no problem with a slow start (which has occurred on a few occasions recently) as they put 21 on the board in the first quarter to build a seven-point lead and built that up to 10 by halftime.

    “I believe if we play like (that), we will be a tough team to play against,” said Coach Sebastian Hopkins.

  • Lions mount huge comeback in win over Blacksburg

    It’s hard to believe that the flow of a game could change as quickly as Lewisville’s did with Blacksburg on Tuesday…Believing was the key.

    “At halftime, I told the guy we just had to leave no stone unturned and could still win the game. Then I told them I only had one more word for them…believe,” said Coach Mike McCray.

  • Lions split with Chesterfield and York Prep

    They kept it close for a half, but the Lewisville girls basketball team dropped a 62-35 game at Chesterfield.

    The Lady Lions hung tough early on, trailing only 14-10 through one and 30-19 at the half before falling into a 20-point hole in the third. Amber Bass led the team with 13 points, Allie Keels added eight and Abby Dixon five.

    On Friday, the team fell to York Prep 56-30 despite 11 points from Hannah McCallister and a nine, point, six-rebound effort from Bass.

  • Red Devils suffer first loss of the season

    The season-opening winning streak of the Great Falls basketball team came to an end Friday…but just barely.

  • Chester hangs on against Bruins, falls to White Knoll

    Apparently, free throws aren’t always free.

    Chester missed its opportunity to ice the game at the line, but still managed to hang on for a 66-63 win Friday night over Lancaster, avenging a loss from the previous week.
