    Lancaster, after battling No. 2 Northwestern, caps its 2010 regular-season home schedule as the Bruins face 6-2 Gaffney.

  • Eagles soar early in 38-0 region...

    Buford’s short bus ride to Pageland resulted in a long night on the football field as the top-rated Central Eagles soared to a 38-0 win on CHS homecoming 2010.

    The game, the Conference IV-AA opener for both teams, featured sloppy play on both sides, with Buford fumbling five times and Central tossing three interceptions.

    The opening kickoff was a sign of things to come as the ball bounced off a Buford player back to the waiting arms of an Eagle at the BHS 30.

  • Gardner hopes to lead LHS girls...

    Lancaster High School No. 1 singles player Morgan Gardner, a member of the LHS tennis team since the seventh grade, has seen the Lady Bruins earn a postseason bid each fall.

    This season, her final as a LHS senior captain, Gardner would like to see the Lady Bruins go as far as possible on the court.

    “We make it to the first round and hopefully this year we can make it by the first round and go all the way,” she said. “That would be nice.”

  • Lady Bruins netters down Gaffney

    The Lancaster High Lady Bruins tennis team improved their region record to 3-2 with a 5-1 road win over Gaffney High School on Monday.

    The girls departed the bus in an aggressive mood and quickly jumped on the offensive in most of the single matches and No. 2  doubles.

    Morgan Gardner displayed an aggressive attack as she won the first single, 6-1, 6-2.

    Sara Hicks after a slow start finished strong in defeating the second singles player, 2-6, 6-3, and 10-5.

  • Belk's versatile lineman

    Lancaster High School’s 2010  homecoming week has a little different meaning for Bruins’ senior offensive lineman Dustin Belk.

    Belk, the six-foot, 265-pounder, is back to his trench roots this week as the LHS offensive line has been revamped in order to give the Bruins’ attack some needed punch in the running game.

    Belk, a four-year member of the LHS varsity and a three-year starter, launched his career at guard where he returned this week.

  • Robinson's clutch pick...

    Indian Land High senior Jarrell Robinson snuffed out a late Andrew Jackson drive with an interception at the one-yard line to preserve a 21-16 win in the Region IV-AA opener for both teams on Friday night.

    Robinson also ignited the No. 9 Warriors’ with a clutch 64-yard fake punt touchdown run on IL’s opening drive of the second half.

    “Jarrell Robinson made two big plays for us tonight,” Indian Land coach Mike Mayer said. “AJ had a good scheme for us tonight, but we prevailed to go 6-0 for the first time in school history.

  • Track caps season with exciting...

    Lancaster Motor Speedway capped its 2010 racing season with an exciting night of racing at the half-mile dirt oval Saturday night.

    The NDRA Crate Late Models front row had Justin Hobgood and Mike Huey.

    When the green flag dropped, Hobgood and Huey went into turns one and two side by side for the lead.

    Exiting turn two, it would be Huey with the lead over Hobgood, Steve Banal and Timbo Mangum.

    Huey, as the laps ticked off,  put some distance between himself and the rest of the field.
