  • Schedule unveiled for newly named football jamboree

    It will go by a new name, but it will remain the lone opportunity to see all three of Chester County’s high school football teams on the same field on the same night.

  • Cycs fall in semis, but get what they need from tourney

    The Chester Cyclones did not win the annual 7-on-7 tournament they hosted last week, but Coach Victor Floyd said he still got exactly what he wanted out of the event.

    “We got what we could get out of 7-on-7. We got some good work in, which is what we needed,” he said.

  • Winthrop offers Talford

    Another day, another big scholarship offer for Kelton Talford.

    The Great Falls High rising senior basketball standout was offered by the Winthrop Eagles on Thursday.

    “Blessed to receive an offer from Winthrop University,” he said via Twitter.

  • Chester hosting 7-on-7 tourney Friday

    Last year, the Chester Cyclones lost in the semifinals of the annual 7-on-7 tournament they host, but went on to win the AAA state championship. Cyclones coach Victor Floyd would be likely be fine with a repeat of that performance.

  • Talford nets offer from Catamounts

    On the court and off, it was a big weekend for Great Falls’ Kelton Talford.

    At a big basketball showcase event  held at Richland Northeast High School, Talford was dominant, offering up a 40-point effort in the first game of the event. Following, and perhaps partially because of, that effort, Talford was offered a scholarship Monday by Western Carolina University. Great Falls coach Jimmy Duncan said his standout’s latest offer came somewhat out of the blue.

  • When it comes to realignment, bigger is better

    I have some advice for the South Carolina High School League (SCHSL) as it tries to make things fair and equitable for the athletic programs of the state’s smallest schools…stop trying.

  • Lewisville making the most of a short summer

    For teachers and students, the summer always seems short, but Lewisville High School football coach Will Mitchell says it really is this year.

    In a bit of an oddity, Chester County Schools did not go through graduation ceremonies until June 8. In most recent years (and for the coming school year), graduation takes place in May. That cut a week out of the summer schedule and the South Carolina High School League cut another, declaring the week of July 4 to be “dead” this year, with no team activities of any kind allowed.

  • Cyclones go to the air in spring game

    There was a running clock and the score wasn’t actually kept, but on Thursday the defending state champion Chester Cyclones football team was back on the field.

  • Jason signs with St. Andrews

    For St. Andrews University, seeing was believing when it came to Jashawn Jason. For Jason, believing was believing when it came to St. Andrews.

    On Thursday, Jason, a senior football standout at Lewisville High School, signed with St. Andrews. Jason said he has literally played organized football from the first time he was able to do so (when he was about seven) up until now and is looking forward to continuing that at the college level.

  • Defending champion Cycs take the field Thursday

    It’s only a scrimmage and the scoreboard might not even be turned on, but on Thursday, for the first time in 55 years, the Chester Cyclones will take the field as defending state champions.

    On Thursday, Chester will wrap its spring practice session with its annual spring game at 6 p.m. in the football stadium. Coach Victor Floyd said he is still undecided on exactly what the format for the session will be.
