  • McGriff shines in all-star play

    Nehemiah McGriff’s final high school basketball game was quite a finish for the Bruins’ senior player. 

    McGriff hit 16 points, eight in each half, in the 69th annual North-South All-Star boys basketball game Saturday at Lexington High School.

    McGriff, who signed with Limestone to play for the Saints last fall, was the game’s second-leading scorer.

  • Barfield back to lead ILHS softball

    Indian Land High School softball has a new look this season, but one quite familiar with ILHS Lady Warriors’ diamond success.

    Monica Barfield, who won three Class A state softball titles, 2004, 2005 and 2006, has returned to the Lady Warriors’ dugout as the head coach to lead the program.

    Barfield has a solid cast of players who earned their share of experience last spring in IL’s final season in Class AA softball.

  • Experience propelling Lady Jackets in soccer play

    The 2017 Buford High School soccer team, in its third season, is kicking up its heels.

    The BHS Lady Jackets, off to a 6-0 start with six shutouts on the season, have even surprised third-year coach Bob Bowen.

    “We’ve played well, but I didn’t know at this point we would be undefeated on the season,” he said. “I think what is giving us a spark is that we have our share of players who have been in our program three years.”

  • Lady Jackets blitz Knights

    The Buford High School girls soccer team kept their unbeaten mark intact with a sixth straight shutout Thursday at North Central High School of Boonetown.

    The Lady Jackets, 6-0 on the season, forged a 7-0 halftime lead on the Lady Knights on the way to the 8-0 victory.

    BHS senior forward Victoria Hinson paced the Lady Jackets with two goals and an assist. Emma Larson also had a pair of goals.

  • Lady Jackets blank Bruins

    The unbeaten Buford High School Lady Jackets upped their soccer record to 5-0 on the season, taking a 4-0 win over Class AAAA rival Lancaster High School at Memorial Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.

    BHS was led by forward Victoria Hinson, who tallied three goals in the Lady Jackets’ shutout win over the Lady Bruins.

    Midfielder Isabella Jones scored a goal. Midfielder Payton Howell and forward Waverly Bundy each had an assist in the Buford win.

  • LHS golfers stay unbeaten

    The Lancaster High School golf team stayed unbeaten on the links season, posting two wins on a cold, blustery day at the Lancaster Golf Club on Wednesday afternoon.

    LHS topped the field with a 164, followed by Andrew Jackson High School’s 196 and Westwood High School’s 224.

    The 5-0 Bruins were led by Trey Crenshaw’s 38 and Brady Hinkle followed with a 39.

  • County trio set for all-star games

    A trio of Lancaster County hoop stars will be competing among the best seniors in the game at two different hardwood venues this weekend.

    Andrew Jackson High Lady Volunteers star Alexxus Sowell will make AJ hoops history as the first AJHS player in the Carolinas Classic All-Star Basketball game at Myrtle Beach’s Socastee High School on Saturday.

    The Carolinas Classic annually features the top senior basketball players in the Carolinas.

  • Lady Vols have new coach, veterans

    The Andrew Jackson Lady Volunteers’ softball team sports a new coach, and plenty of veteran players for the 2017 season.

    Coach Wesley Kidd, who built a strong softball program at West Stanley High School (N.C.) where he won a state title in 2013, is the Lady Vols’ new coach.

    Kidd is new to the AJ softball program, but sports a solid cast of returnees this spring, including three all-region players – seniors Kinsley Adams, Cassidy McKittrick and Morgan Hendrix.
