  • UPDATED: Belk announces transfer from Clemson

    When Josh Belk committed to play football at Clemson, he cited the strong family atmosphere at the school and said it was the place he wanted to call home for the next four years of his life. Now he’s leaving the Tigers program, citing family issues in his Chester County home.

    Belk, the Lewisville High graduate who committed last January to the Tigers, graduated high school in December and enrolled in college early, was granted an unconditional release from his football scholarship by Clemson Head Coach Dabo Swinney on Tuesday.

  • Lady Lions take state title series opener

    Young Lewisville softball supporters Piper Sealey and Caroline Thomas made their way into the dugout prior to Monday’s Class A softball championship opener to sprinkle the team with glittery “pixie dust” for good luck. It might have just done the trick.

    Lewisville produced some two-out and late-inning magic, erasing a seventh-inning deficit and beating defending champion East Clarendon 9-7 in nine innings in Turbeville.

  • Lewisville girls track team wins first-ever state title

    Lewisville Track and Field Coach Matthew Owings didn’t tell Alaysia Gaston exactly where she needed to finish in the triple jump for her team to win a state championship.

    “Take care of business and we’ll be good,” he told her.

    Lewisville was good. Gaston not only placed in the event, she won it with a personal best jump of 35 feet to take the gold and the valuable 10 team points that came with it.

  • Lewisville downs McBee 2-0, heads to school's first-ever state title series

    They did charge the mound and jumped up and down for a minute, but other than that Lewisville acted as it always does following a game. They shook their opponents’ hands, then huddled around Coach Jerry Thomas. There was a celebration, but it was a muted one.

    “That’s because we don’t feel like we’ve really accomplished anything yet,” said pitcher Chloe Thomas.
