  • Jackets blitz Lions

    RICHBURG  Friday night was a wet one for the Buford Yellow Jackets, as they traveled to Lewisville to take on the Lions. The Yellow Jackets usually prosper from these sorts of games, and this Conference III-A contest was no different.

    With the exception of a huge 58-yard touchdown run from BHS senior running back Andrew “AT” Jennings, you could have called the first quarter “the Britt Wells Show.”

  • Banks keys Lancers links success

    Stellar play by freshman Trevor Banks has enabled the University of South Carolina at Lancaster golf team to reach new heights in their fall performances.

    Banks’ 144 (73-71) score at Glen Cannon Country Club in Brevard, N.C., enabled the Lancers to finish fourth in the Montreat Fall Invitational.

  • LHS bids to stay unbeaten

    Lancaster hits the road and puts its undefeated record on the line against a Northwestern team which holds a surprising 0-4 mark to date.

    The Bruins, 4-0, are coming off a three-game home stand where LHS went 3-0.

    “I hope we can keep it rolling, but it will be a challenge,” Lancaster High coach Bennie McMurray said. “I’ve told our players to not pay attention to Northwestern’s 0-4 mark, but to remember it’s Northwestern.”

  • Racing back at LMS for Carolina...

    Lancaster Motor Speedway returns to action Saturday night with the running of the Carolina Clash Super Late Model series.

    He is followed closely by five-time Carolina Clash champ Ricky Weeks of Rutherfordton, N.C. Chris Ferguson, out of Mt. Holly, N.C., is hot on his tail.

  • Lady Warriors split in...

    The Indian Land Lady Warriors dropped a 3-0 loss to North Central in region volleyball play Monday night.

    The Lady Knights prevailed 25-6, 25-14 and 25-16.

    “We didn’t play well in the match,” IL coach Olivia Terzo said. “We just had a bad night out there.”

    North Central entered the match ranked No. 4 in Class A volleyball. Indian Land is listed seventh.

  • Trojans storm by Bruins

    ROCK HILL Saturday was dreary for the Lancaster Bruins, but it wasn’t about the weather on this overcast, misty afternoon.

  • McMackin Memorial sports fun,...

    The fifth annual Neil McMackin Memorial Scholarship golf tournament, also known as High Five Friday, featured its share of glad hands at the Lancaster Golf Club on Friday.

  • Strong start aids IL rout

    INDIAN LAND This time there was no wait late to get started for the Indian Land Warriors’ football team.

    IL, which ignited late for two scores only to fall short in a 14-13 loss to Class AA county foe Andrew Jackson last Friday at AJ, had no such situation Friday night when they routed North Central 42-6 in their Conference III-A opener.

  • Rams too strong for Yellow...

    BUFORD Friday night was a bitter-sweet type game for the Buford Yellow Jackets.  BHS was able to suppress the Chesterfield Golden Rams’ high-powered offense, but they couldn’t stop them completely.

    Buford received first possession in this contest, assembling a pretty good drive converting on fourth down on one play, and burning 7:29 off the clock.  The drive went null when Chesterfield picked off a Britt Wells pass.

    The Rams’ pass heavy offense was effective in the first half, but in the red zone they faltered with two turnovers.

  • Bruins blitz Jackets 38-0

    Each week, Lancaster High School head football coach Bennie McMurray stresses progress from the previous game.

    McMurray, after the Bruins’ 38-0 rout of county rival Buford High School, saw few flaws in the LHS effort Friday night.

    “This was almost a perfect game,” said McMurray. “It’s the kind of play we need from our team.”

    The Bruins came out roaring and blitzed the Jackets for 31 first-half points on the way to the shutout win.

    LHS, 3-0, struck for 24 points in the opening period to take control early.
