High School

  • Pemberton claims big statewide honor

    The athletic programs at Lewisville High School have done a lot of winning lately and now so has the school’s athletic director.

  • Lions stay unbeaten

    The Lewisville baseball team did not lose a game to a Class A competitor last season. That trend has continued.

    Lewisville, in fact, hasn’t lost anyone yet, running its record to 6-0 with a pair of wins last week. The Lions knocked off AA Andrew Jackson 12-7 on Wednesday. Lewisville built up an 8-0 lead after five innings before the Volunteers had a late rally that came up short. Nic Rachels and Russell Noland led the way at the plate with two hits each. Braxton Elms pitched three scoreless innings and Jack Jordan tossed two scoreless innings in the victory.

  • Chester wins in three-inning rout

    Chester pitcher Luke Wright threw 36 pitches in a complete game effort Friday and remarkably, that probably wasn’t the most amazing stat from Chester’s 21-0 win over Columbia.

  • Lady Lions win in extra innings

    It took a little longer than normal, but the end result was the same for the Lewisville softball team.

  • Cyclones are ready to run

    With speed in the outfield and on the base paths, the Chester baseball team can really run. Partly because of that, their new head coach thinks they might go on a run this year too.

    Matt Durand has been an assistant for the Cyclones the past three years and was elevated to the head position when Coach Chris Powell left in January for a job in North Carolina. Having been around the program and all the current players, he said the transition has been an easy one.

  • Devils want to create some chaos

    To say that Great Falls had a chaotic start to its 2017 baseball season might be an understatement.

    Last year, the Red Devils lost their head coach for health reason just before the start of the season. Ben Roberts assumed the job, but not before he actually played against the players he was about to lead.

  • Lions win Comporium Tournament

    They’ve got their eyes on a different tournament a little later this year, but the Lewisville Lions already have one tournament championship under their belt in 2018.

    The Lewisville baseball team won the Comporium Tournament Title. The Lions opened play last week with a 5-1 victory over Chester. Rhett Cox was the winning pitcher in that game while Braxton Elms and Jack Jordan each went 2-for-3 at the plate. One of Elms’ hits was a triple.

  • Lady Lions ready to take the next step

    The softball teams from Lewisville and Dixie met recently for a pre-season scrimmage. It’s a safe bet they’ll meet again and the stakes will be considerably higher next time.

  • Lady Cycs look to come on strong

    Chester Softball Coach Chris Dodson knows what his team’s strength is…that would strength.

    “You can tell they’ve put in the work in the weight room. We have less injuries, we’re hitting for more power and our pitching is stronger,” he said.

  • Lions hope to finish where they start

    The Lewisville baseball team sits at number one in the 1A preseason rankings but no one knows better than the Lions how little pre-season rankings mean.

    Last season, Lewisville started the year at number four in the polls behind two teams in its own region, but went 15-0 against Class A competition and rolled to a state championship. There is plenty of talent still on hand from that title-winning for the Lions to make another run at a ring, but Coach Billy Keels said there was one area hit particularly hard by graduation.
