  • Sports Talk: Buford fell, but...

     If ever a photo told the story, The News’ May 19 front page picture of Buford High School senior softball stars Sydney Sullivan and Morgan Deese said it all.

    Their long faces and sad eyes, likely tear-filled soon after the final out of the Lady Jackets’ 8-1 loss to Latta in the Class AA softball state championship game, spoke volumes of their expected disappointment.

    The image was dejection personified on the mid-May evening in the Pee Dee.
