  • Lewisville Lions win big in opener

    For a long time, the South Carolina High School League (this state’s governing body of prep athletics) has worked under the slogan “An athlete is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules.” That saying doesn’t mention anything about everyone competing according to the same rules, however, and it’s easy to see why.

  • Rewriting the rules

    For a long time, the South Carolina High School League (this state’s governing body of prep athletics) has worked under the slogan “An athlete is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules.” That saying doesn’t mention anything about everyone competing according to the same rules, however, and it’s easy to see why.

  • Oregon offers Chester's Evans

    As one of the lynchpins of an outstanding Chester defense in 2018, defensive tackle Quay Evans drew a lot of attention from opponents. The season ended three months ago and he’s still drawing attention, only now from college recruiters.

  • Lady Cycs are ready to run

    Going into Tuesday action, the Chester softball team was off to a slow start, with only one of its scheduled games played in the opening week-and-a-half of the season. That will likely be the only slow thing about the Lady Cyclones this season.

    “This is the most team speed I’ve had in my three years here,” said Coach Chris Dodson. “My outfield covers all kinds of ground out there. We shouldn’t have a ball land in the outfield.”

  • Willie B trophy's Statehouse Diary

    NOTE: On Feb. 28, the Chester Cyclone State Championship AAA football team, coaching staff and Chester High Principal Dr. Duane Graham were honored with a series of events at the S.C. Statehouse.

What follows is a slightly irreverent account of that day, from the POV of Willie B.

    It was a good season for the Chester High School Wrestling team…and a good postseason too.

    Chester sent seven wrestlers to the recent state individual meet, held in Anderson. The top finisher for Chester was Terrence Mills at 170 pounds. He recorded a second place finish, qualified for state three times in his career and ended his as a Cyclone with 128 career wins.

    Ly’Terrence Mills also had a second-place finish. The junior (160 pounds) is a two-time state qualifier.

  • Lewisville softball team starts with a win

    The Lewisville softball team began the 2019 season the same way they ended the 2018 campaign…with a win.

  • Lady Lions accept the challenge

    Moving up to the AA ranks and losing key players from last year’s state championship team (including the Class A player of the year) will be a big challenge. The Lewisville softball team has accepted that challenge.

    `Being AA doesn’t concern me,” said Lady Lions coach Jerry Thomas. “We’ll take on anybody. We go out and play our game. We’ll compete with anybody.”
