Today's Sports

  • Column: To be Frank, my dad’s...

    The moment, though years ago in my teens, is one I’ll never forget.

    My father, the late Jim Howey, and I were watching the evening sports in our Sherwood Circle home.

    Among the sports news that night was the Philadelphia Phillies’ firing of journeyman manager Frank Lucchesi, not your household name among big league skippers.

    What caught my attention as the story aired in July of 1972, an emotional Lucchesi, an Italian American, teared up with news of his ouster.

    I chuckled seeing a grown man cry.

  • P-31 edges Chester for sweep

    Lancaster Post 31 notched a diamond sweep of Chester Post 27 at Eggleton Field on Thursday night, but it was a hard-earned win.

    Lancaster, in week three play of the Legion baseball League V mini-series, edged Post 27, 3-2 to push its record to 3-5.

    P-31 opened the week with an 0-5 mark, but reeled off three straight wins over Chester.

    Lancaster rolled in the first two games, winning 17-6 at home Monday night and 18-5 at Chester on Tuesday.

  • Breakers down Piranhas in...

    The LC Piranhas are 2-1 in Metrolina League meets, 2-2 overall.

    The meet was halted after 50 events due to lightning in the area.

    The LCST was led by Olivia Thorpe, Bristol Glenn and Fletcher Armbrust who posted three wins each.

    Double winners included Ryder Lucas, Isabella Thorpe, Tamra Tipton and Mallory McDow.

    Lancaster, in the meet with TCST, won two of four relay events.

  • Former ILHS hoops star Felder to...

    COLUMBIA – University of South Carolina rising sophomore guard Rakym Felder will head overseas later this summer to Madrid, Spain, with USA East Coast, a group of college all-stars who will be led by Hall of Fame head coach Larry Brown.

    Felder played his freshman season of basketball at Indian Land High School during the 2012-13 season.

    The 5-10, 210-pounder was a key performer in the Warriors’ 23-3 season that year, averaging 21 points a game for coach Nate Smith’s team.

  • P-31 routs Chester again

    Lancaster Post 31 rolled to a second straight American Legion baseball League V win, ripping Chester Post 27, 17-6 at Chester on Tuesday night.

    Lancaster, 2-5, opened the week, blasting Post 27, 18-5 at Eggleton Field.

    Hunter Laney and Andrew Caskey paced the 15-hit Lancaster offense with three hits each on the night.

  • LCST Piranhas down Gators

    Driver Michael “Downtown” Brown posted the biggest win in the SECA Crate Late Model division this season with a $2,000 victory at LSS.

    Brown was able to build an early lead and cruised to the win.

    Brown finished ahead of Dillon Brown, Ryan Atkins, Timbo Mangum and Ron “Tha Bull” Parker.

  • Mangano sizzles at Edgewater

    Lancaster High School golfer Nick Mangano’s play was stellar in the boys 15-18 age group tournament at the Edgewater Golf Club to highlight the Lancaster chapter’s second tournament of the 2017 season.

    Mangano, an all-region golfer for the Region III-AAAA champion team, shot a four-under 68 over 18 holes at Edgewater to take a five-shot win in the S.C. Junior Golf Association’s local chapter tourney.

    Junior golfers, ages 13-up, played Edgewater on Monday, while the juniors, ages 12 under, competed at the Lancaster Golf Club.

  • P-31 rips Chester for first win

    Lancaster Post 31 broke into the win column in a big way, rolling to an 18-5 win over Chester Post 27 at Eggleton Field on Monday night.

    Lancaster, 0-5 entering the game, ignited in the opening frame to score seven runs and take control on the way to the American Legion baseball League V win.

    The early seven-run surge was enough to give P-31 the edge and the Lancaster team rolled from that point.

    Trey Rollings opened the first inning with a single and Christian Joplin, with an out, followed with a run-scoring single.

  • Mosley charges for Super Stock...

    The Lancaster Super Speedway focus was on Ronnie Mosley on Saturday night.

    Mosley, in the last week, was the talk of the racing community at Lancaster Super Speedway.

    Mosley’s challenge was to win from the rear of the field in the Super Stock Division. Countless fans, friends, and sponsors of Ronnie Mosley put up a combined $2,000 of bonus money for him to win.
