• Chester County grads excelling at college level

    Four Chester County basketball products are having solid seasons on the college hardwood.
    Torrey Craig, a 2010 Great Falls graduate, has been one of the bright spots for the 4-20 USC-Upstate Spartans. The freshman is first in the Atlantic Sun in scoring among freshmen at 14.8 points a game. That total is fifth in the conference regardless of class. His average puts him at fifth nationally among freshmen.
    Craig also averages 7.2 rebounds a game, which is first among freshmen in the conference, third overall and 15th nationally among freshmen.

  • Craig scores career high

    His team came up on the short end of a 78-71 decision Monday, but Great Falls graduate Torrey Craig had his best game as a collegiate player.
    Craig, a freshman, scored a career high 25 points in USC-Upstate's loss to Kennesaw State. Craig hit three three-pointers and added seven rebounds and two assists for the Spartans (2-11).
    Craig, who helped guide Great Falls to a pair of state title appearances and was named the state's Class A Player of the Year in 2010, is averaging 12.7 points and 6.7 rebounds a contest for Upstate.

  • Craig and Sanders continue stellar seasons

    The first year Spartan averaged 16.3 points-per-game and 6.3 rebounds-per-game in three contests in the Charleston Classic. In the opening game, Craig posted career-bests of 13 points and seven rebounds against Wofford, the reigning Southern Conference champions.

  • Chester County grads make their mark at next level

    The high school football season has begun for Chester County's schools and it is about to begin for former Chester, Lewisville and Great Falls stand-outs at the college and professional level.
