  • Warriors surge early, sack Cats

     

    INDIAN LAND – Coming off two tough losses, it was clear that Indian Land

    needed its most complete and cleanest performance to date to

    secure its first win this season.

    For the vast majority of the game, with the

    exception of a little dip in the third quarter, that was the

    performance the Warriors delivered in their 2017 home opener.

    In doing so, the Warriors secured new coach Horatio Blades’ first win, a 37-13 victory over the Blacksburg Wildcats at the ILHS Reservation on Friday night.

    The Yellow Jackets ignited for 31 first-half points on the way to the 17-point win.

    Lancaster battled back in the second half, but the Yellow Jackets’ earlier damage was too much to overcome.

  • Picks girls still going strong

    The girls of the Picks continue to have fun, big fun as they build their leads.

    Catoe has a game up in the lead, with Sistare ahead by four on her nearest challenger.

  • Wright versatile for Jackets

    BUFORD – Looking for a senior superlative to describe Buford High School veteran player Shylyn Wright and versatile would fit him to a maroon and gold T.

    Wright, in his fourth season playing for the Jackets and third year as a BHS starter, is all over the field.

    About the only time, you will find Wright on the BHS sidelines is when the Jackets’ kickoff team is on the field.

    BUFORD – Buford High football coach Tripp Watts said the Jackets needed big plays to boost their win hopes over Class A’s second-ranked Lewisville High School on Wednesday night.

    The game was played Wednesday, two days earlier than scheduled, due to the forecast of heavy rain and storms from Hurricane Harvey this weekend.
