  • Taking the town by storm

    Although the parade honoring the AAA State Champion Chester Cyclones football team on Saturday was sparsely attended, the Cyclone faithful more than made up for it in the “Rally in the Valley” that followed. While others may have been off celebrating the national championship win by a certain collegiate team with a Tiger mascot that same day, there were more than enough Cyclones fans to give the team a well-deserved cheer or two and many rounds of applause at the rally put on with the assistance of the City of Chester.

  • Cyclones record second region win

    Chester High Coach Sebastian Hopkins said his boys basketball team didn’t earn any style points Friday night, but they did earn a victory over Camden and that’s all that really matters.

    “The kids played pretty flat but a region win is a region win,” he said.

    The Cyclones shook off a loss from earlier in the week (to Keenan) with a 62-53 win.

  • Despite tough schedule, Chester...

    Their schedule the past few weeks has been tough, but then so is the Chester High wrestling team.

  • Devils prep for first-place...

    It’s a big week for Great Falls High School basketball, but it won’t be an especially big week.

    The Red Devils boys team was to have played at Camden Military Academy on Tuesday, but that didn’t happen. Coach Jimmy Duncan said some unforeseen circumstances led to the game being postponed. That will probably become a cancellation eventually, though the two teams do have another game scheduled for January 29.

  • Lions split with Vols, fall at...

    The Andrew Jackson Volunteers split Region IV-AA games with the host Lewisville Lions last Tuesday night.
    The second-ranked Lady Vols won, 56-38. The Vols lost to the Lions in double overtime, 84-83.
    The boys’ game was an intense battle the entire game. The Lewisville boys came out with a full-court press and tried to deny the Vols any room to work. The Vols stuck to their sets and worked the ball to the net consistently.
    The Vols lead each quarter through three, and were tied at the end of regulation.

    In every sense, Saturday was a long night for Bethune-Bowman.

    The slow start the Chester boys basketball team got off to this season might actually lead to major success down the road.

  • Parade to honor Cycs coming...

    The community has been clamoring for the past few weeks for a way to properly honor the Class 3A state championship Cyclone football team and now that wish will be granted.

    The Cycs will be honored in true hometown fashion with a parade and rally this Saturday, beginning at noon.

    According to a flyer from Chester High School, the parade will begin at the TruVista Communications office on York Street, then the route takes a left turn onto Hudson Street, a right turn on Gadsden Street and will end with a rally at the top of the hill.

  • Roll Ti...gers

    On Tuesday, fans and superfans of Clemson celebrated the Tigers’ national championship win over Alabama.

    At the S.C. Statehouse on the first day of the legislative session, Dist. 43 S.C. Rep. Randy Ligon sported a South Carolina flag and Clemson orange tie.

  • "It will always come back...

    James Peay’s football-playing career may or may not have ended last month on a high school field in South Carolina. Amazingly, his career didn’t really start on a high school field in South Carolina.
