  • Battles, cautions aplenty at...

    As the week of extreme temperatures came to a close, one would have thought the track at Lancaster Speedway to be dry and dusty. That was not the case. The “Masters of the Mud” did an amazing job keeping the dirt track in shape.

  • Realignment impacts schools

    The S.C High School League’s realignment will have a major impact on Lancaster County high schools.

    Realignment, the League’s biannual reshuffling of schools for interscholastic competition based on school enrollment, begins with the 2010-11 school term and lasts for two years.

    The realignment has Lancaster headed into a new region with familiar past foes, while the rest of the county schools – Andrew Jackson, Buford and Indian Land – will compete in one region for the first time ever.

  • Steady Threatt nets title

    In fitting fashion, Steven Threatt rolled in a three-foot par putt on No. 18 to give him the Lancaster Golf Club championship on Sunday afternoon.

    Threatt, a one-handicap golfer, was consistent all day with his short game – 13 pars, four bogeys and a birdie – for a one-over 145 (70-75) to claim a single-shot win over Trevor Banks.

    Banks, the former Buford High School star golfer headed to the University of South Carolina to play for the Lancers, entered the final hole tied with Threatt.

    Mayer noted the Warriors posted eight scores and allowed one TD to the host Wolverines.

  • Lightning goes 3-3 in YBOA...

    The Palmetto Lightning, a 10-under girls basketball team from the Kershaw, Heath Springs and Lancaster areas, fashioned a 3-3 record in the Youth Basketball of American national tournament earlier this summer.

    The Lightning capped play with a 20-15 loss to the Georgia Pearls.

    Keyotta Garris hit six points and Elizabeth Scott netted five to boost the Lightning. Brantley Ussery scored three and Summer Vick added one point.

  • Catoe to play for Lancers

    University of South Carolina at Lancaster tennis coach Brian Clark is glad to have a player like Logan Catoe in the Lancers’ fold.

    Clark added an area player, one who has his share of court potential.

    Catoe, a three-year player at Lancaster High School, joined the Lancers men’s tennis program Thursday when he signed in the USCL athletic department conference room.

    USCL, in its second season of tennis under Clark, is looking to build its program and adding area players is to his liking.
