  • Wildcats blank Warriors, 20-0

    BLACKSBURG – Coming off an emotional, dramatic overtime win against rival Buford last week, the Indian Land Warriors traveled to a difficult place to play, Blacksburg.
    The Wildcats were hungry for their first win after a tough 24-22 loss to sixth-ranked Lewisville last Friday night.
    In the end it was Blacksburg’s stout defense and big plays that were the difference in the Wildcats getting their first win, 20-0.
    Indian Land had two scoring chances in the first half.

  • Unbeaten Lions top Jackets, 36-20

    RICHBURG – Buford traveled to Richburg to face the undefeated Lewisville Lions Thursday night, instead of the regular-scheduled Friday night game because of the approaching tropical storm Hermine.
    The No. 6 Lions outlasted the upset-minded Yellow Jackets 36-20 to push their record to 3-0.  It's Lewisville’s first 3-0 start since the 2000 season.
    Both teams moved the ball well, Lewisville on the ground and Buford through the air.  The Lions and Jackets combined for a total of 772 yards of offense.

  • Cato gives FM the boot, 16-14

    Jacob Cato’s first-ever field goal will have a lasting place in his highlight memory bank.
    Cato’s 25-yarder with 12.7 seconds to play lifted ninth-ranked Lancaster High School to an exciting 16-14 win over Class AAAAA foe Fort Mill High School at Memorial Stadium on Thursday night.
    The game was played Thursday, a day earlier than scheduled, with the expected impact of heavy rain from Hurricane Hermine over the weekend.
    The sky was dark in the early stages and as the night wore on, it became gloomier for the Bruins.

  • Lady Jackets seek to continue court success

    The Buford High School volleyball team posted a banner season last fall and hopes are high for another strong Lady Jackets’ court campaign.
    BHS, 22-3 last season, captured the Class AA Upper State volleyball crown and finished as the state runner-up under coach Taylor Roberts.
    Roberts, entering her third season as the BHS head volleyball coach, guided the Lady Jackets to a 15-5 record, a region runner-up and playoff bid in her first season two years ago.

  • Lady Volunteers volleyball banking on solid start

    The Andrew Jackson High volleyball team is off to a solid start and the Lady Volunteers hope to continue their court success this season.
    AJ, 10-5 last season and a Class AA Upper State playoff team, opened the 2016 season winning the Pelion Invitational.
    AJ defeated host Pelion, Mid-Carolina, Irmo and Gray Collegiate to capture the Gold Bracket at the PHS tourney.
    AJ, led by seventh-year coach John Verdugo, has eight returning players, including seniors Kinsley Adams, Cassidy McKittrick, Ansley Lucas, Haley Vincent and Kaitlyn Holden.

  • LHS trio is triple threat

    The success of the Lancaster Bruins offense will fall on the shoulders of the LHS senior backfield trio – seasoned running backs Ant Foster and Farrika Grier along with ever-improving quarterback Jamias Shropshire.
    The LHS trio can get it done with their arms and legs.
    “They can be among the best trio to ever come through here,” Lancaster High third-year head coach Bobby Collins said. “They’re a big key to the offense.”
    Shropshire likes the confidence.

  • Cato boots LHS to win

    Lancaster High School sophomore kicker Jacob Cato drilled a 25-yard field goal with 12.7 seconds left to lift the No. 6 Bruins to a 16-14 win over Class AAAAA foe Fort Mill High School at Memorial Stadium on Thursday night.

    Cato's game-winning kick, his first-ever varsity football field goal, was set up by a clutch 55-yard return by Bruins' senior defensive back C.D. Catoe.

    LHS, 2-0, visits Chester on Friday night.
