  • All-county defensive unit...

    Big-play producers and big hitters head The Lancaster News’ all-county defense.

    The unit is bolstered by a solid linebacking corps which included Andrew Jackson’s Dylan McKittrick, Buford’s Britt Wells, Ervin Moore of Lancaster and Indian Land’s Tyler Watkins.

  • Bruins wrestlers hopeful

    Jeff Foo has moved into the role of head coach of the Lancaster High School wrestling program and he hopes to continue on the Bruins’ mat success of last winter.

    “We made some strides last season and we hope to continue,” said Foo, who served as an LHS wrestling assistant last season to Terry Marshall, who yielded his coaching duties to spend more time with his family.

    Foo, a 23-year U.S. Army veteran who is now retired, is hopeful.

  • Swain was a work of Art

    Saturday morning the Lancaster Bassmasters were busy with their annual Christmas project of reaching out to the community. The Lancaster sportfishing club each yule season provides toys, food and needed supplies for those less fortunate. Ironically, the same time  the Bassmasters were busy spreading cheer, a memorial service was held for one of the club’s charter members, Art Swain.
