Lancaster High School will cap its regular-season basketball season Monday, Feb. 17 with games at South Pointe High School in Rock Hill. The girls’ game tips off at 6 p.m., with the boys game to follow at approximately 7:30.

The Bruins were slated to host York High School in a reset Region III-AAAA game Saturday, Feb. 15 at noon, but the games were canceled since they have no bearing on the Class AAAA Upper State playoffs which open next week.

Andrew Jackson’s regular-season finale, set for Friday, Feb. 14 at Central of Pageland, has been reset for Monday, Feb. 17 at 6:30 for the girls.

Buford’s regular-season finale with county and Region IV-AA rival Indian Land High School, which was set for Friday, Feb. 14, has been rescheduled for Monday, Feb. 20 in the Buford High School gym. The girls game is set for 6 p.m., with the varsity boys to follow. No junior varsity boys game will be played.

The A.R. Rucker Rams will play rival South Middle School on Monday, Feb. 17 in the Lancaster High School gym.

The game was originally set for Wednesday, Feb. 12, but postponed to Feb. 17 with the winter storm.

Play on Feb. 17 tips off at 6 p.m in the LHS gym.  The Rams and Lady Rams are each unbeaten on the season, while the South boys have one loss on the season.

The University of South Carolina Lancaster’s baseball team’s doubleheader with St. Andrews College, set for Thursday, Feb. 13 at the Lancaster High School baseball field, was postponed, but no make-up date was set.

The Lancers, 5-2 on the season, are scheduled to play USC Salkehatchie in a twin bill Saturday, Feb. 15 in Allendale and Sunday, Feb. 16 in Lancaster, but Lancers’ coach Steve Williams said Friday morning, Feb. 14, that all four games, a doubleheader each day, will be played in Allendale.

“We made that switch because we felt we didn’t feel we would be able to have our field ready for play this weekend,” Williams said.
