  • 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.

  • Last-second shot ends Lewisville's season

    His team was up seven and was on pace to score 80 points. Even so, Mike McCray knew it wasn’t enough.

    “I felt like we should’ve been up more,” he said.

    McCray was right. The Lewisville Lions lost their lead by the end of the third, then lost their season on the last play of the game in a 60-58 loss to Ridge Spring-Monetta in Friday’s 1A upperstate title game.

  • Buzzer-beater ends Lewisville's season

    Lewisville's nine-game winning streak and the team's hopes of making a second-straight appearance in the 1A state championship game ended at the buzzer Friday in a 60-58 loss to Ridge Spring-Monetta. The Lions end the season at 17-9. For highlights, go to https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=wSnk8h549eo&feature=youtu.be

  • Five Chester wrestlers headed to state

    The Chester wrestling team had a good showing in the team playoffs a few weeks back and an even better one at the upperstate individuals tournament this past weekend.

    The Cyclones had five wrestlers earn their way to the state individual tournament. Javy Gonzales finished in second place at 132 pounds and LyTerrence Mills finished second at 145 pounds. Chauldray Evans was a third-place finisher at 152 pounds, Terrene Mills was third at 165 Teddy Murphy came in fourth place at 220 pounds.

  • Cycs bow out with loss to Walhalla

    The Chester basketball team will not be winning the 2018 AAA state basketball championship. Given the way this season went and the general direction of the program, though, there is no reason to believe they can't win it in 2019.

  • PLAYOFFS: Lions outlast Devils in OT, Chester bows out
  • Lions hang on at HKT

    A good start gave Lewisville the good finish it wanted.

    The Lions boys basketball team built up a big lead at halftime, led by double figures through three, then had to hold on through a furious Hunter-Kinard-Tyler rally for a 58-54 win.

  • Red Devils roll over Hawks

    Sincere Wilmore pulled up from half court and sent a shot toward the basket as time expired. When the ball found the bottom of the net, the crowd erupted and an on-court celebration was touched off. His buzzer-beater didn’t provide a last-second, miracle win, though…it provided an exclamation point.

    The Great Falls Red Devils advanced to the third round of the playoffs for the first time in six years on Friday night with an 89-47 blowout victory of Blackville-Hilda.
