  • Dynasties rule at Weekend of Champions

    Lamar finished the 2017 season right where they started it…at number one.

    The Silver Foxes went wire-to-wire at number one in the S.C. Prep Media Poll and won their second 1A state title in three seasons Friday night with an overwhelming showcase of offensive firepower, beating Baptist Hill 74-46.

    It was obvious early on that the scoreboard was going to get a major workout. Baptist Hill led 16-14 less than six minutes into the contest and held a 24-22 advantage at the end of the first quarter.

  • Four Lions picked for All-State team

    Lewisville represented itself well in the state playoffs this year and is well-represented on the Class A All-State team as well.

  • Seven Cyclones named all-region

    They dominated most of their Region IV-AAA competition, so it makes sense that the Chester Cyclones dominated the all-region team.

    Quarterback, punter and kicker John Erby was named the Region Player of the Year. Erby, a senior, stepped into the big shoes left by Malik Williams and excelled, guiding Chester to a 9-3 record, a second-place region finish and a berth into the second round of the playoffs. For the year, Erby ran for nearly 1,000 yards, passed fore more than 2,000 yards and accounted for 38 total touchdowns.

  • Basketball round-up: Cycs roll to 2-0

    The Chester boys basketball team is off to a 2-0 start after a pair of non-region wins over AAAAA competition this week.

    Chester opened the season with a 68-66 win over Northwestern on Tuesday. The Cyclones were down six early, cut it to three by halftime, went up one after three and held on for the victory. Coach Sebastian Hopkins said his team didn’t play well early as the group is still getting in basketball shape.

  • Lady Lions will be more than a spoiler

    Last season, the Lewisville girls basketball team notched a late-season victory over McBee, which damaged the playoff seeding of the Lady Panthers. This year, Lady Lions Coach Tearia McCrorey is planning on her team being more than just a spoiler.

    Lewisville missed the post-season last year, but figures to be back in the hunt this season. McCrorey’s group was as young as a team could be last season, as the roster did not feature a single senior.

    “I didn’t lose anybody,” McCrorey said.

  • Cycs look to build on last year's success

    The Chester Cyclones boys basketball team only has one starter to replace from last season’s region title winner. Of course, that one starter was a pretty good one.

  • Lions want more this season

    Mike McCray and his Lewisville Lions boys basketball team know what it’s like to play for a state championship. This year, they want to know what it feels like to win one.

  • Duncan expects big improvement in year two

    The Great Falls boys basketball team should be ready for the grind of a long season…since they’ve already  had one.

    Second-year coach Jimmy Duncan had a young team last year and still has one this season, with three sophomores penciled into the starting lineup and another expected to play a lot of minutes. He had to find a way to manufacture some experience for the group, so he lined up the longest and toughest slate of summer work that he could.

  • A tough call ends Lewisville's season

    Friday’s third round playoff match-up between Lewisville and Ridge Spring-Monetta was as much about a touchdown that didn’t count as the seven that did.

    The Lions built a big lead, fell behind, then had a potential game-winning touchdown wiped out by a penalty in the closing seconds of a 28-24, season-ending loss.

  • Hill earns all-conference honors

    Mike Hill was an all-region and all-state performer as a high school player at Lewisville last year. So, very little has changed for him now that he’s playing on the college gridiron.
