  • Lions rally for win over Yellow Jackets

    Blake Barron, in his first season as head coach of the Lewisville baseball team, says his team is working to hang around and be there at the end, when it counts. That’s exactly what his Lions did Monday.

    Trailing 3-2 going to the bottom of the seventh, Lewisville rallied for a 4-3 victory over Buford.

  • New faces coming to Region II-A football

    The will probably still be several good teams in Region II-A come football season. What their likely won’t be is much tenure or seniority.

  • Chester rally comes up just short

    There was a stoppage in play as a player was removed from the field, another as a pitcher was forced to remove multiple pieces of jewelry and yet another as officials struggled to cut on the stadium lights. So, it was a typical Chester vs. Fairfield contest.

    A very young Cyclones team took an early lead and showed grit in battling back to forge a late tie, but lost on a walk off by an 11-10 score.

  • Realignment lawsuit against SCHSL resolved

    While admitting to no wrongdoing, the South Carolina High School League (SCHSL) has agreed to “implement new procedures” and undergo FOIA training as part of the settlement of a lawsuit brought by some member schools.

    The lawsuit relates to the realignment that is currently in place and will run through the end of next school year. Realignment is a process of grouping schools into athletic regions based on size and proximity that the SCHSL undergoes every two years.

  • All the Wright moves

    Jake Wright is apparently seeing the ball very well right now. Lately, it’s been getting really hard to see the ball once he hits it, though.

    Wright, the Chester High School graduate, is on an absolute tear at the plate for the top-20 ranked Coastal Carolina Chanticleers baseball team. The team is off to an 18-5-1 start and Wright has been a big part of that success.

  • Lady Lions win two straight

  • Red Devils moving quickly to fill football opening

    Not only will Great Falls High School likely have a new football coach in place by the time spring practice starts, they may have them in place by the time next week starts.

    Two weeks ago, Scotty Steen was asked to step down as head coach of the Red Devils after two years on the job. A Great Falls High graduate, Steen logged two decades with the program including his long stint as an assistant.

  • 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
