    INDIAN LAND A high school media center is supposed to be one of the quietest places on campus during the school day, but for a brief, special moment that changed Friday afternoon at Indian Land High School.

    Just after ILHS senior offensive lineman Sam Seigler signed to play football at The Citadel, an admiring group of students and teachers applauded the moment.

  • Landrum ends BHS's...

    Buford had an unexpected short stay in the Class A Upper State wrestling tournament at Chesterfield High School on Saturday.

    The Jackets were an opening-round casualty, falling to Landrum 39-34.

    “This was a match we could have won, but it didn’t help us not having two wrestlers we were counting on, but they didn’t show and it cost us,” BHS coach John Mahaffey said. “This was disappointing and until we get that changed, our program won’t reach its potential.”

  • BHS senior night sweep

    The surging Buford Yellow Jackets made BHS basketball senior night special, sweeping Conference III-A foe North Central on Tuesday night.

    The Lady Jackets launched the region broom job with a 53-39 win and the BHS boys capped play with a 46-37 win.

    The Lady Jackets, 3-8, 5-12, used a solid third-period charge to take control of the contest.

    “We turned up the pressure on them and that gave us some easy scores,” BHS coach T.J. Armbrust said. “We were able to knock down some shots early and that also opened up the middle for us.”

  • Jackets take two from Panthers

    The Jackets finished strong for the 12-point win over the Panthers.

    BHS, 7-14, 4-6, took a 35-30 lead after three periods and cruised to the win.

  • Lancers sign Cycs' Clack

    The decision to offer Chester High’s Kody Clack a baseball scholarship probably wasn’t a difficult one for USC-Lancaster coaches. Deciding where to play him once he gets on campus might be, though.

    Clack signed with the Lancers on Wednesday.

    During his time as a Cyclone, one of Clack’s strengths has been his versatility.

    “Kody is a great player with great instincts. He’s played every position for us,” said Chester coach Dennis Jensen.
