  • 'Canes sweetest season

    The third time proved to be the charm for the 1959 Lancaster High School Blue Hurricanes’ football team.

    In the fall of 1959, Lancaster’s biggest stories were the passing of Col. Elliott White Springs and the opening of the local branch of the University of South Carolina at the old Williams home, now the site of the Lancaster County library. That same year, the Lancaster High football team was making a strong run for state honors.

    Courtney McCrorey’s 15-yard run and Atiya Byrd’s extra-point run gave the seniors a 7-0 edge.
