  • Neff's Omaha diamond chance special time

    There was a twist of irony to Gamecock pitcher Steven Neff’s first full week of June.

    It started with Neff,  the Lancaster Dixie Baseball product who starred for Lancaster High School and the Post 31 Legion baseball programs, being drafted for the second time in his career.

    It was capped with Neff’s USC team rallying for an exciting 10-9 NCAA Super Regional win over Coastal to capture a bid to the College World Series in Omaha, Neb.

    The last time he was drafted was out of LHS, when he was picked in the 26th round by the Pittsburgh Pirates.

  • Toast to 'Teet'

    FORT LAWN The signs around the banquet room at the Catawba Fish camp said it all.

    “Papaw, tell us about the good old days.”

    Faulkenberry’s daughter, Ginger Dove, said the event for her 79-year-old father was something she’s planned for two years.

    The P-31 juniors, coming off a 10-0 home win over Rock Hill, faced a rematch with the Post 34 junior team on Wednesday night and repated the diamond feat with a 13-2 win.

    Richie Robinson hurled a complete game, tossing a two-hitter and striking out nine batters. He walked five Rock Hill batters.

    “Richie had his best outing at a time when we really needed it,” Lancaster junior team coach Sam Sinclair said. “He threw strikes and was in control all night.

  • Sylvia elated with soccer programs' progress

    The Lancaster High School soccer teams’ goal of earning Class AAAA playoff bids fell shy, but Bruins’ coach Bo Sylvia said the LHS seasons were still ones to build on this spring.

    Sylvia noted both teams won tournament titles and garnered their share of honors in tough Region IV-AAAA play.

    Sylvia was named the Region IV-AAAA soccer coach of the Year for the boys and senior captain Alex Roach, the Bruins MVP who earned a scholarship to Anderson University, reaped all-region honors.

  • Summertime is VBS time

    In the next few days, hundreds of children in Lancaster County will be learning Bible verses, singing songs, making crafts and gulping all the Kool-Aid and sandwich cremes they can hold.

    A sure sign of summer vacation is Vacation Bible School.

    Many area churches have been, and will be, teaching about Christianity through themes such as “Saddle Ridge Ranch” and “Step Up and Go Green for Jesus” in the upcoming weeks.

  • Never Frozen

    Early Thursday, James Stogner pulled the back of his Ford pickup between two posts beneath the pavilion at the Lancaster County Farmers’ Market on Pageland Highway.

    He dropped the tailgate, reached inside and slid a square upside-down kitchen table out of the truck bed and turned it over onto to the cement.

    In no time at all, Stogner had the tabletop covered in heads of fresh cabbage, bright green cucumbers, squash and peppers.
