    Saturday was a solid day for Indian Land High School sophomore Rondreas Truesdale, who brought home the lion’s share of Indian Land’s winnings from the Class A state meet at Lower Richland High School in Hopkins.

    Truesdale won the silver medal in the boys 110-meter hurdles at the meet Saturday, May 15.

  • Lancers' second season...

    The University of South Carolina at Lancaster Lancers’ second season of baseball saw marked improvement over its rookie campaign.

    USCL, led by second-year head coach Steve Williams, posted a winning season. The Lancers’ season ended at the NJCAA Region X tournament, but USCL made history before bowing out in the field.

    Top-seeded Spartanburg Methodist ended the USCL’s postseason hopes with an 10-3 win in the tournament at Burlington (N.C.) Athletic Stadium.

    The Lancer’s eight-run loss to the Pioneers ended USC-L’s season at 26-23.

  • Couch to guide Jackets'...

    Buford High School boys basketball coach Jeff Moyer’s decision to lighten his coaching load is having a heavy impact on Neil Couch’s coaching career.

    Couch, with Moyer’s move to yield his hoops coaching duties, will become the Jackets’ head basketball coach. He has guided the BHS junior varsity team the last two years.

    The move was made earlier this week at the Lancaster County Class A school, which will begin competing as a Class AA school with the start of the 2010-11 Lancaster County school term.

  • Warriors triumph, advance

    Indian Land advanced to the third round of the Class AA Upper State playoffs, downing county rival Buford, 6-2 in the teams’ fifth meeting this spring.

    After the two teams split in regular-season play, a special play-off match was held at Lancaster Memorial Stadium where the Warriors captured the title with an 8-2 win.

    The top four competitors in each event qualify for the state championship meet.

  • McBee halts Buford run

    This time McBee played the spoiler.

    A year ago in the elimination round of the Class A Upper State championship series, Buford ousted McBee in a close encounter, rallying late to notch an emotional one-run win.

    McBee earned its diamond revenge Wednesday night at the Lady Panthers’ softball field in extra innings.

    Buford, the Class A defending state softball champion, saw its postseason hopes fade in a 5-4 loss in eight innings.
