  • Cooper looks to Classic

    Come Saturday at high noon, Lancaster High School girls’ senior soccer star Lindsy Cooper will kick her way into the LHS athletic record book.

    Cooper, a Lady Bruins’ soccer star and two-year member of the varsity squad, is the first LHS girls player to earn selection to the North-South Classic soccer match.

    Cooper will play for the North in the match at Wofford College in Spartanburg where the top senior soccer players from the 2009 season will battle.

  • Jackets to host Classic

    The sixth annual Founders Federal Kickoff Classic will be hosted by Buford High School.

    The Jackets are the host school for the jamboree for the third time. When the jamboree was set up to be played, all four county schools were to serve as a host on a rotating basis.

    Buford served as the host school for two seasons and Lancaster hosted the third event, with Andrew Jackson hosting the 2007 jamboree.

  • Juniors face showdown

    The rivalry resumes Monday night at Eggleton Field.

    A year ago, the Lancaster junior Legion team finished second to Gaffney in the regular-season league race with both holding the same record, but Gaffney won on head-to-head meetings. In the state tournament, P-31 earned some revenge, eliminating Gaffney from the postseason tourney.

    Now the two clubs are prepared to meet again in an early showdown in Legion baseball League V junior play.

    “We had a great week overall,” said Lancaster P-31 junior team coach Josh Pauling. “I am very proud of these boys this week. To win four games in one week is a difficult task at any level, and hats off to these young men for this accomplishment.”

  • AJ's Wright completes...

    KERSHAW Andrew Jackson High School senior athlete Daniel Wright made it 4-4 as far as the Wright family was concerned in Volunteer athletic prowess.

    Wright, who graduated with the AJ Class of 2009 on Friday afternoon at the Lancaster County Class AA high school, was the last sibling in his family to play for the Volunteers. He capped his senior year and AJ career, earning the AJ Male Athlete of the Year Award.

    His brother Danny earned the Andrew Jackson High Male Athlete of the Year in 2000.

  • Buford claimed state title in...

    Buford’s 2009 softball season was highlighted by a first-ever Class A state championship and some record-setting performances along the way.

    Buford junior hurler Jena Hallman, who earned a Class A Player of the Year honor from one sports publication, broke three school marks in the Lady Jackets’ 26-9 season under first-year coach “C” Davis.

    Hallman, 22-9, set a new mark for wins in a season, besting the old standard of 17 which was held by Lisa McManus in 2001.

  • P-31 charity ride a record

    The fifth annual American Legion Post 31 baseball charity ride was a grand slam.

    “In the past, we’ve done real well and it has to do with the response from the community, bikers and riders,” said Lancaster Post 31 athletic officer Mike Lucas. “Our ride this time around was the best we’ve had. This is our major fundraiser and it was a huge draw. This reflects well on the community and says people are willing to make a difference.”

    The 2009 P-31 charity ride, held a week later than last year, drew a record 170 bikes and 225 total riders.

  • Fort Mill rolls in 17-7 win over...

    Headed for a lengthy break, it wasn’t the kind of diamond departure Lancaster Legion Post 31 baseball coach Brett Blackmon was looking for on Tuesday night.

    The Lancaster Legion P-31 senior baseball team, which will be idle until June 17, dropped a 17-7 League V road loss to Post 43 at Fort Mill High School.

    Lancaster, with a solid start, broke on top for a 4-0 lead in the first inning, but Fort Mill steadily battled back to take the 10-run home win.

    Fort Mill used a three-run second inning and a single score in the third frame to tie the game at 4-all.
