    Tournament officials honored gross and net winners in the 33-team field, which was a seven-team increase from 26 over the 2008 tournament.

  • Strong start aids IL rout

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

  • 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.

  • Lancaster High swimmers prevail...

    The Lancaster High School swim team swept a four-way meet, prevailing with 212 points.

    Jena Aeschbacher – 2nd 100 backstroke, 1st 200 individual medley

    Elizabeth Catoe – 2nd 50, 100 freestyle

    Sarah DeVenny – 3rd  100 backstroke, 4th 100 butterfly

    Kaysia Grow – 5th in 500 freestyle and 100 butterfly

    Hannah Jacobs – 4th 100 breaststroke, 2nd 200 individual medley

  • Game-ending pick helps AJ edge...

    KERSHAW Andrew Jackson’s Ricky Wilson thwarted a furious Indian Land rally, when he intercepted an errant Josh Camarire pass on the game’s last play to preserve the 14-13 win for the Volunteers.

    Indian Land scored twice in the fourth quarter, after the host Volunteers had amassed nearly 400 yards of total offense, to pull within a point, 14-13.

    “Give coach Mayer and his staff credit,” said AJ coach Elmer Bench. “Indian Land played hard and made some great adjustments in the second half.

  • Anthony steps up for IL

    INDIAN LAND Indian Land High School senior defensive end-tight end Dimitri Anthony is in his third year with the Warriors’ football program, but he senses a certain newness this season.

    Anthony, a second-year starter for the Warriors, calls it a “new vibe.”

    “Last year, we had the talent, but didn’t show it,” said Anthony, a 6-0, 210-pounder. “This year, we have the talent and it’s showing.”

    The Warriors, at 2-0 after home wins over Class A foes Buford and Blacksburg, have made a solid opening statement.
