  • Bruins slay Gators

    GOOSE CREEK – Buoyed by clutch defensive play, the Lancaster High Bruins kept their Class AAAA state football championship hopes solidly afloat at Goose Creek on Friday night.

    The big-play LHS defense delivered in the clutch to key a 28-20 win over the Region VII-AAAA champion Goose Creek Gators at the GCHS’s John Fulmer Field.

  • Red Devils' Bumgardner...

    There is a sign clearly posted in the Great Falls High School Library Media Center forbidding anyone to bring food, or drink into the area.

    An exception was made on Monday.

    A brief reception was held in honor of senior Gaither Bumgardner, who officially signed a baseball scholarship with USC-Upstate in Spartanburg.

  • Rematch ahead in Rock Hill

    Rematch ahead

    in Rock Hill

    Lancaster faces a rematch in the Class AAAA Division II state semifinals Friday when the Bruins travel to Rock Hill to battle Northwestern. Lancaster dropped a 27-7 non-region home loss to the Trojans in week five of regular-season play.  Northwestern won the Region III-AAAA regular-season title, meaning LHS will be facing a region champion for the third straight week. Greenwood, which fell to LHS 14-10 in the opening round, won the Region I title and Goose Creek, a 28-20 LHS victim, won the Region VII crown.

  • Hardwood Classic, Jackets...

    The Lancaster County Hardwood Classic, a preseason girls basketball tournament, opens play Saturday night at Andrew Jackson High, but the schedule has a slight change from the campus sites set earlier in the week.

    The opening game is at 7 when Indian Land faces Chester, with host AJ meeting Buford at 8:30. Lancaster and Chesterfield received first-round byes.

  • Carter's route full circle

    Lancaster High School senior wide receiver Shane Carter, along with a handful of his Bruins’ teammates, probably has a deeper appreciation of LHS’s 9-3 playoff season.

    Carter, a three-year starter and four-year team member, has seen the Bruins’ football program come full circle.

    Carter, along with linebacker Stephno Drakeford, place-kicker Anna Funderburk, center Tyler Outen and defensive lineman Travis Smith were members of the 2005 LHS team that went 0-11.

  • USC golfers prevail in...

    The Gamecocks have plenty to crow about, at least when it comes to the annual Big Thursday Scholarship golf tournament at the Lancaster Golf Club.

    The USC golfers, comprised of area Gamecock fans, prevailed for the sixth time in the seventh annual Big Thursday tournament which is annually held prior to the Clemson-USC football game.

    As has been the norm in the golf tournament, if the Gamecocks win, then Clemson prevails on the gridiron.

  • Bruins clip Eagles 14-10

    GREENWOOD – The gutsy Lancaster Bruins delivered on a do-or-die drive to keep alive their postseason football hopes.

    Resilient Lancaster extended its season Saturday night when the Bruins clawed out a 14-10 win over Greenwood in the opening round of the Class AAAA Upper State Division II football playoffs at J.W. Babb Stadium.

    The 9-3 Bruins, down 10-7, drove 41 yards for the winning score as junior tailback Zedrick Truesdale bolted in from a yard out to lift LHS on top with 45 seconds to play.

  • Hornets foil Devils' hopes

    There was repeat of last year’s regular-season success and a repeat of the all-out effort, but there won’t be a repeat of last year’s Class A Upper State championship for the Great Falls Red Devils.

    Some big plays, a few mistakes and some questionable calls led to a 31-21 loss Saturday for the Devils at Ware Shoals in a second round playoff.

  • North small fry, mite stars roll...

    FORT MILL – The Lancaster County Parks and Recreation North small fry all-stars launched their recreation football postseason play in impressive fashion, rolling to a 42-0 win over Tega Cay in the Central District tournament on Monday night at Fort Mill High School.

    Markthian Watts keyed the North stars of coach Sammy Lathan with a pair of touchdowns to spark a 14-0 start.
