    Seniors Chloe Thomas and Alexis Odum were both selected to take part in the annual North-South Softball All-Star Game. The event will have a heavy Lewisville flavor as Tommy Bailey, Lady Lions assistant coach, will be on the coaching staff of the 1A, 2A, 5A North team.

    Meleke Stewart and Broderick Roscoe were scheduled to be court this month in Horry County to face charges in the 2014 shooting death of Alton Daniels in Myrtle Beach.

  • An Ace in the hole

    He’s not a senior and isn’t their number one starter, but he’s definitely their Ace.

    Two times in the course of three games, junior Ace James came on in relief for Lamar and held Lewisville’s powerful lineup at bay. That was just enough to get the Silver Foxes a pair of wins over Lewisville and eliminate the defending champion Lions from the upperstate playoff bracket.
