  • Lady Bruin booters roll on

    The unbeaten Lancaster High School Lady Bruins continued their sterling soccer play, blanking Class AAAA foe Hartsville 8-0 at Memorial Stadium on Friday.

    The Lady Bruins’ win pushed their mark to 6-0 with six straight shutouts. The LHS girls have outscored their foes 42-0.

    Lindsy Cooper sparked the Lady Bruins with five goals in the match. Lena Pringle tallied two and Cady Creighton added a goal for the LHS girls.

    Tara Tipton and Katie Duke teamed for the shutout at the net.

  • Lady Bruins banking on softball...

    Third-year Lancaster High School softball coach Shawanda George said an experienced Lady Bruins team can be a force in the Region III-AAAA race.

    The LHS girls, 12-7 last season, have a solid cast of players returning this season.

    Senior right-hander Courtney Cauthen sports an experienced arm on the mound. An all-region pick last spring, she earned the team’s Defensive Award. Junior right-hander Anna Howey adds depth.

    Claire Brown, an eighth-grader, is at catcher, with sophomore Crystal Cauthen also looking to see action behind the plate.

  • Silvia pleased with LHS soccer...

    Lancaster High School soccer coach Bo Sylvia is wearing two hats this spring, but he feels he has the situation covered.

    Silvia is leading both the Bruins’ soccer teams in his second year at LHS. A year ago, he guided the boys team, but has since added the girls’ squad to his coaching duties.

    Sylvia, who has enlisted a host of support, said the work has produced results.

    The Lady Bruins, who won their first-ever tournament title last month when they took the Cyclone Cup at Chester, are unbeaten in six matches and have outscored their foes 42-0.

    The Andrew Jackson Volunteers rolled to a 16-1 win over Eau Claire to open Conference IV-AA baseball play on Tuesday.

    Bobby Delly, Adam Eubanks, Daniel Pardue, Chad DiCola, Ryan Phillips and Rollings each banged two hits to pace the Volunteers.

    Cory Ingram, Tyler Rodgers and Tyler Bradley each had a hit.

    USCL forged an early 3-0 lead with a three-run second and added four runs in the seventh inning and a pair more in the eighth to take the win.

  • Lancers hope to rebound

    The University of South Carolina at Lancaster Lancers will look to get back on track and for favorable weather today.

    The Lancers, 9-6, dropped a pair of games to Florence-Darlington Tech on Saturday at the Lancaster High baseball field.

    USCL, after being swept, was rained out of its Sunday afternoon home twin bill with the FDTC Stingers.

    “It wasn’t a good weekend for us,” USCL coach Steve Williams said. “We were swept and then we were a rain casualty Sunday.
