  • Steen leaving “dream job” with...

    He isn’t leaving Great Falls, he’ll always be a Red Devil, but Scottie Steen is no longer head football coach of the Great Falls Red Devils.

    After two years as head coach and two decades as an assistant, Steen stepped down from his position last week. Steen said he was called into a meeting with school principal David Spencer and asked to resign. He said he knew that stepping down was the right thing for everyone involved.

    “Mr. Spencer is not a bad guy in this. The only bad guy is cancer. Cancer sucks,” Steen said.

  • Lewisville Lions win big in...

    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.

  • Lady Cycs are ready to run

    Going into Tuesday action, the Chester softball team was off to a slow start, with only one of its scheduled games played in the opening week-and-a-half of the season. That will likely be the only slow thing about the Lady Cyclones this season.

    “This is the most team speed I’ve had in my three years here,” said Coach Chris Dodson. “My outfield covers all kinds of ground out there. We shouldn’t have a ball land in the outfield.”

  • Oregon offers Chester's...

    As one of the lynchpins of an outstanding Chester defense in 2018, defensive tackle Quay Evans drew a lot of attention from opponents. The season ended three months ago and he’s still drawing attention, only now from college recruiters.

  • Lady Lions accept the challenge

    Moving up to the AA ranks and losing key players from last year’s state championship team (including the Class A player of the year) will be a big challenge. The Lewisville softball team has accepted that challenge.

    `Being AA doesn’t concern me,” said Lady Lions coach Jerry Thomas. “We’ll take on anybody. We go out and play our game. We’ll compete with anybody.”

  • For the Lions, some things never...

    There is a new head coach, a slew of new starters and an all-new slate of region opponents, but some things will stay the same with the Lewisville baseball team.

    “This program doesn’t need wholesale changes,” said new coach Blake Barron. “(Former) Coach (Billy) Keels was very successful. We don’t need to change a whole lot.”

  • Devils working to overcome...

    Josh Heffner has had his team in the gym working almost every day for the past few weeks, which would be great if he coached basketball.

    “With the weather, we obviously haven’t been able to get on the field as much as we want to,” Heffner said.

  • Chester wrestlers finish strong

    It was a good season for the Chester High School Wrestling team…and a good postseason too.

    Chester sent seven wrestlers to the recent state individual meet, held in Anderson. The top finisher for Chester was Terrence Mills at 170 pounds. He recorded a second place finish, qualified for state three times in his career and ended his as a Cyclone with 128 career wins.

    Ly’Terrence Mills also had a second-place finish. The junior (160 pounds) is a two-time state qualifier.

  • Lewisville softball team starts...

    The Lewisville softball team began the 2019 season the same way they ended the 2018 campaign…with a win.
