• Cok picks up first win

    The Randolph-Macon College baseball team is undefeated this year and so is Lewisville graduate Christian Cok.
    Cok, a sophomore pitcher at the Virginia College, notched his first win of the year Sunday. Randolph-Macon was deadlocked in a 3-3 tie with Rensselaer through six innings. Cok came on and pitched a perfect inning of relief, allowing no base runners while striking out two batters. The team managed to plate one run in the bottom of the seventh to claim the win and make Cok the winning pitcher.

  • Holmes continues solid play for Wolves

    Another big game from Xavier Holmes wasn't quite enough to extend Newberry College's winning streak.

As he has done throughout his senior campaign, Holmes certainly did his part, scoring 16 points, pulling down two rebounds and adding an assist and a steal. Newberry dropped to 15-9 overall and 10-8 in conference play with the defeat.

  • Holmes leading Newberry in scoring

    Another big game from Xavier Holmes wasn't quite enough to help the Newberry Wolves basketball team hold onto a big lead against Carson-Newman on Sunday.

  • Squirewell receives another honor

    The season ended for the Newberry College Wolves football team more than a month ago, but the honors are still rolling in for Alstevis "Stevo" Squirewell.
    The Great Falls High graduate was one of seven Newberry players to earn All-Super Region Two honors from Don Hansen's Football Gazette.

  • Holmes coming up big for Wolves

    His string of double-doubles has come to an end, but Xavier Holmes is now a part of NCAA history.
    Holmes, a Great Falls graduate who is now in his senior year at Newberry College, came into his team's game last week against Lenoir-Rhyne with a string of four consecutive double-doubles. He didn't keep that streak intact but still had big game, contributing 23 points, six rebounds, two blocks, an assist and a steal as Newberry won 133-122 in overtime. In that game, the Wolves set an NCAA Division II record for most points in an overtime period with 28.

  • That fighting Clemson Tiger Football Team

    "How about that fighting Clemson Tiger Football Team?"
    That's technically a question, but my dad never presented it to me as such or expected an answer. It was rhetorical, there was a short pause between "tiger" and "football" and it was delivered in an unemotional monotone right after any Clemson loss. After they lost their opener to Virginia Tech in 1986, after they didn't show up against Georgia Tech in 1989, after they suffered letdowns and head-scratchers in the '90s and 2000s…

  • Another double-double for Holmes

    Xavier Holmes has now tripled up on double-doubles.
    Holmes, a Great Falls High School graduate now playing his senior season for the Newberry College men's basketball team, scored a game-high 33 points and snared 10 rebounds Wednesday as the Wolves took down Mars Hill 99-93.
    Newberry trailed 7-2 in the early-going but took the lead when Holmes hit back-to-back layups and a free throw to put it at 13-9 Newberry. Holmes then hit a fast break layup to go up 15-9 after Brandon McCarter turned the ball over.
