  • Talk isn't cheap

    If you pay very close attention, you’ll notice that the Chester High girls soccer team is doing a lot more communicating on the field. You’ll also notice the team is doing more winning.

    So far this year, the Lady Cyclones are 4-8 on the year. However, those four wins equal the squad’s victories from all of last season. The team is also 3-3 in the region, is locked into a playoff spot and has an outside chance at earning second place, which would mean a home playoff game.

  • Lions knock off Stallions, Rams

    The Lewisville Lions baseball team is back from spring back and right back to their winning ways.

  • Spring round-up: Chester soccer, softball notch wins

    The Chester boys soccer team continued its playoff push on Tuesday night with a close win at Columbia.

    The Cyclones downed the Capitals 2-1. Irving Ramos scored both Chester goals, including the first just 10 minutes into the contest on an assist from Jeffrey Gulish. Columbia tied the score at 1-1 just before the half and it stayed that way until the 79th minute when Ramos scored from the right side of the box off a cross from J.D. Welborn. Kenard Young turned away seven Columbia shots-on-goal.

  • Misenheimer won titles, impacted lives

    Sue Misenheimer didn’t stop being a mom when her only child, Mel, died at a young age in a car accident.

    “In some ways, we were able to fill in and be surrogate kids. She meant everything to a lot of us,” said Allison Feaster-Strong.

    Misenheimer, who was a teacher, coach and mentor to more than two decades worth of students at Chester High School, died early Monday morning. Feaster-Strong and many others say she influenced their lives well beyond the time she spent wearing a whistle on Chester County’s basketball and tennis courts.

  • Lady Lions lose close one to national power

    It will go down in the record book as a loss, but it will probably help prepare the Lewisville softball team for some bigger wins down the line.

    On Wednesday, Lewisville was eliminated from the Grand Strand Softball Classic Tournament with a 4-3 loss to Greenbrier Christian Academy. The Lady Gators scored two runs in the first inning, but Lewisville responded with single runs in each of the first three innings to take a 3-2 advantage. That held up until the fifth, when Greenbrier managed to push two more across and hold on for the one-run victory.

  • Lions win two at Mingo Bay

    They hope to find themselves making a deep run in the 1A post-season tournament in a few weeks, but the Lewisville Lions are also making a nice push in a spring break tournament right now.

  • Lady Lions clinch region title

    Almost a month before the scheduled start of the 1A softball playoffs, Lewisville not only knew they’d be in them, but doing so as a number one seed.

  • Lions bounce back with big win at Lamar

    When Rhett Cox had a no-hitter going against one of the state’s top teams on Friday, it was certainly big news. It was news in general to Cox himself.

    “I didn’t even realize it,” Cox said after the game.

    Cox didn’t get to finish that personal achievement, giving up a single to lead off the sixth inning, but his team met its personal objective, knocking off Lamar by a 6-2  score.

  • Elms and Cox combine to no-hit Devils

    When it came to the big picture vs. a personal achievement, Braxton Elms was not conflicted at all.

    Elms, the Lewisville sophomore, had a no-hit bid going into the seventh inning Friday against county rival Great Falls, but came out after facing one batter. Still, Rhett Cox came in and finished off the feat as the Lions took a 9-1 victory.

  • Lady Lions win one, lose one

    In softball, all losses are not created equal.
