  • LHS trio boosts offense

    When it comes to offense this season, the Lancaster Bruins’ football team, 5-0 and ranked No. 8 in the latest Class AAA state poll, gets it done in a rush.
    The junior backfield tandem of Ant Foster and Farrika Grier are the legs of the running attack as two physical backs that power their way through would-be tacklers.
    There’s another component, which might not net all the attention, but has proven worthy in the LHS run.

    CHESTERFIELD – It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish is cliche, but there is a good reason for that; it’s the truth.
