  • Wright versatile for Jackets

    BUFORD – Looking for a senior superlative to describe Buford High School veteran player Shylyn Wright and versatile would fit him to a maroon and gold T.

    Wright, in his fourth season playing for the Jackets and third year as a BHS starter, is all over the field.

    About the only time, you will find Wright on the BHS sidelines is when the Jackets’ kickoff team is on the field.

  • Picks girls still going strong

    The girls of the Picks continue to have fun, big fun as they build their leads.

    Mandy Catoe, the News correspondent, was dandy last week with a shining 19-1 showing in week two.

    Close behind was Lori Sistare “Bright,” glowing with a stellar 18-2 effort.

    “The gals are blowing us away,” said Ernie “Big E” Rowell, the defending Picks champ. “They got it going. Oh boy, it’s time for us to shine.”

    Catoe has a game up in the lead, with Sistare ahead by four on her nearest challenger.

    BUFORD – If it was not clear before Friday night, Buford versus Indian Land is Lancaster County's best football rivalry.

    The latest game was typical of the series: intense, with a number of emotional and momentum swings, and thanks to the turnovers and penalties, it felt longer than a “Lord of the Rings” movie.

  • Buford turns back Warriors

    BUFORD – Buford High fourth-year football coach Tripp Watts has been focused on seeing the Jackets turnaround their turnover troubles from last season.

    Watts, looking back over the 2016 season, said the BHS giveaways played a major role in the Jackets’ 3-8 finish.

    So in the Jackets’ opener with rival Indian Land, Watts saw BHS once again lose the turnover battle, but not the game.

  • Woolford Extreme 4 winner

    The Lancaster Super Speedway wait was worth it.

    Lancaster Super Speedway officials had a long wait during a rainstorm from about 7:15 to 8:30 p.m. Saturday. On the radar, it was the only Carolinas rain storm that night, so LSS owner Doug McManus waited it out and the main events were a draw and run, skipping the heat races.

    - The night’s final race was the Extreme 4 non-winners race and Keith Woolford dominated the race in posting his first win.

  • Small sparks Buford to big win

     

    BUFORD – In a game billed the “Fire Ant Bowl,” it was only fitting a Small player, potent in his play and offensive sting, come up big for a huge Buford High School football win Monday night at Jackets Stadium.

    Buford senior halfback Dalton Small sparked the inspired Jackets, 4-0, to a 28-27 Monday night football win over Lee Central of Bishopville, which came into the game unbeaten and ranked No. 5 in the latest Class AA state media poll.
