  • Bruin boosters get boost for...

    The inaugural Lancaster Bruins Booster Club Blue and Gold Santa made Christmas last year quite merry for some less fortunate local families.

    The 2010 community event will be that and more come Dec. 11 when the LHS boosters’ 2010 Blue and Gold Santa is held in the school’s cafeteria.

    The Bruins Boosters, who partnered with Founders Federal Credit Union, raised $10,000 at a fundraiser last Friday night at the Bradley Building at the University of South Carolina at Lancaster.

  • Classic battles tonight

    Andrew Jackson interim head football coach David Moore said it best, “after tonight, the bullets are live.”

    The seventh annual Founders Federal Kickoff Classic will be the final time coaches can take a look at their respective teams under live, game-like situations without the final score figuring in the win-loss column.

    The Classic, set for Lancaster Memorial Stadium, features four game-type scrimmages starting at 6 p.m.

  • A crown for Banks

    Taylor Banks said his back-nine play was a pivotal reason he was in front at the end to capture the 2010 Lancaster Golf Club championship Sunday afternoon.

    Banks, a sophomore golfer at the University South Carolina at Lancaster, made every shot count, most in the final nine holes, to capture the title by a shot over Lancaster dentist Matthew Hubis in the 36-hole, two-day tournament.

    Banks, the former Buford High School star golfer, shot a 75 over the final 18 holes for a three-over 147 to edge Hubis, who carded a 148 (73-75).

  • Foul weather sacks Camden...

    CAMDEN It’s a given that any time the Buford High School and North Central High School football teams are in the same proximity of a football field at the same time, fans are going to see a little rain.

    That was as true as ever at the 35th annual Shrine Jamboree in Camden on Friday night.

    The two rivals were supposed to open the contest, but Mother Nature had other plans for the evening. A massive thunderstorm with flashing lightning halted the 2010 pre-season opener before either team took a snap.

  • Lancaster battles to stalemate

    His team was playing under the stadium lights in front of a big crowd, but that didn’t really matter to Lancaster High coach Bennie McMurray.

    Lancaster and Fairfield Central battled to a scoreless tie in one half of action.

    The two teams traded punts to start the contest.

  • Lions' player dies after...

    Lewisville High School senior running back Brian Colvin died after collapsing Friday night during the Chester County Football Jamboree.

    Colvin, 18, had just completed a 16-yard run and was edged out of bounds, though he was not hit on the play. As he jogged back onto the field he collapsed. Trainers and medical staff tended to him briefly before calling for an ambulance.

    Colvin was taken to Chester Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 7:46 p.m. by Tommy Williams, Chester County’s chief deputy coroner.

  • Speedway has exciting night of...

    Lancaster Motor Speedway featured intense racing action at the half-mile dirt oval on Saturday night.

    The late model front row featured Chris Hargett and Mike Huey. When the green flag dropped, it was Hargett and Huey side by side for the lead entering turns one and two. Exiting turn two, Hargett led. Behind the two leaders, it was Shaun Harrell and Randy Smith trying to work by Thomas Hedgepath.
