  • Bruins rip Vols, end Skid

    The Lancaster Bruins halted a 10-game skid in impressive fashion, notching a 9-1 baseball win over Lancaster County Class AA foe Andrew Jackson on Tuesday night.

    The eight-run win gave LHS a sweep of the season’s series.

    A six-run sixth inning, highlighted by a Trevor Hammond RBI-double and a Michael Catoe two-run double, keyed the Bruins.

    Kendall Adams, who went the route, tossed a five-hitter. He struck out three and walked one.

    Zack Rollings had two hits and scored twice for LHS. Andrew Smyre supplied a hit and scored twice.

  • Beth Tomlin scores victory for...

    Sometimes in defeat, there are small victories. They’re the so-called silver lining in a cloud.

    When the Lancaster High junior varsity girls soccer team fell to Blythewood 6-1 on Monday, one of those small victories occurred.

    The Junior Lady Bruins’ lone goal was scored by sophomore midfielder Beth Tomlin on a 10-yard shot off a ricochet.

    In soccer, midfielders mostly set up scores rather than tally. Tomlin’s situation was more unique.

  • Lancers making links progress

    Great Falls High School basketball coach and athletics director John Smith has never really wanted to leave the Red Devils and it doesn’t appear he will have to.

    Smith met with Chester County School Superintendent Larry Heath on Friday and said he was left with the impression that Heath wanted him to return to the Chester County Class A school.

    “He asked if I was interested in returning as coach, teacher and AD, the same positions I hold now, and I told him I was,” Smith said.

    Heading the returnees are senior striker Jason Faile, who scored 27 goals last season when he earned team MVP honors along with all-region and all-state laurels.

  • Lady Bruins rebound, win

    The 9-1 LHS Lady Bruins bounced back from their performance against RV with a strong desire to get back into winning soccer and displayed some of the offensive fire they possessed in some of their earlier matches this season.
