  • Remembering fallen Lions

    Prior to the start of the seventh annual Founders Kickoff Classic, a moment of silence was held in memory of two Lewisville High School athletes who died earlier this month.

    Those remembered were Lions’ football player Brian Colvin and cheerleader Catherine Elizabeth Fowler.

    Colvin, a standout Lions’ football player, died after collapsing on the field in the Chester County Jamboree last week in Chester. His funeral was earlier in the week. Fowler was killed in an auto accident two weeks ago.

  • County trio triumphs

    A trio of county teams – Andrew Jackson, Buford and Lancaster – posted wins to help the home side prevail in the seventh annual Founders Kickoff Classic on Friday night at Memorial Stadium.

    Andrew Jackson  rallied for an exciting 19-14 win over McBee High School,  while the Jackets and Bruins each posted shutout victories.

    Buford blanked Class AAA Fort Mill 6-0 and Lancaster downed county foe Indian Land 14-0.

    The lone visiting team to win was Central of Pageland which rolled to a 20-8 victory over Great Falls.

  • Gilliam has good reason to be...

    If you see coach Roosevelt “Sandy” Gilliam these days, he’s likely beaming.

    Coach Gilliam has every right to be.

    The 2010  College Football Hall of Fame induction ceremonies included a  couple of his former players, Emerson Boozer and Willie Jefferies, who were enshrined during ceremonies in South Bend, Ind., just over a month ago.

    The card features the following divisions:

    Limited Late Models

    The last time LMS had Limited Late Models Chris Hargett won as Hargett beat a star-studded field to the finish line in Randy Smith, Mike Huey and Shaun Harrell. Expect all these drivers back Saturday night. Who will claim the win Saturday night?

  • 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.

  • Starnes wins the Pure Street

    The scattered rain showers throughout Lancaster County did not stop the action at the Lancaster Motor Speedway on Saturday night.

    NDRA Crate Late Model

    David Yandle and Chris Fite were in the front row of the NDRA Crate Late Model main event. Fite, an up and coming young driver in the NDRA Crate Late Model Division at Lancaster Speedway, won a lot of fans Saturday with his heat race win over Brandy Baker.

  • 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).

  • Bruins, Warriors post Border wins

    FORT MILL, Lancaster and Indian Land were Sandlapper victors in the second annual Battle of the Border high school football jamboree at Fort Mill’s Bob Jones Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

    The jamboree features four South Carolina teams against North Carolina schools.

    The LHS Bruins, coming off an 0-0 tie with Fairfield Central High of Winnsboro on Friday night in the Chester County Jamboree, topped Myers Park of Charlotte, 14-7.

    Indian Land swatted the Forest Hills Yellow Jackets in a 24-12 win to open play.
