  • AJ's Blackmon recognized as...

    Andrew Jackson High School’s Gavin Blackmon was the lone Lancaster County player to earn recognition at the weekly meeting of the Tri-County Football Coaches Association meeting on Tuesday at the Towne Tavern in Fort Mill.

    Blackmon, in the Class A-AA-AAA awards, was honored as the defensive player of the week with 14 tackles in the Volunteers’ 26-14 home loss to Region IV-AA champion Lee Central.

    Blackmon, for the game, garnered 14 tackles, 10 solo hits, three big hits, a pass break-up and graded out at 95 percent.

  • Catoe back on top in picks

    Mandy Catoe’s absence from the Picks top spot didn’t last long.

    Catoe, on the heels of a 15-5 week, vaulted back into first by a pair of games.

    Lori Sistare “Bright,” up a game in first last week, couldn’t make it last with a 12-8 showing.

    “Those two girls are in a tight race,” said Eric “The Red” Rowell. “Since we’re getting close to Halloween, that’s really scary. I think that have put a spell on the rest of the pickers.”

  • County teams fall in volleyball...

    Region IV-AA champion Buford saw its postseason hopes end with a 3-1 loss to Christ Church of Greenville on Monday in the BHS gym.

    Buford opened with a 25-18 win, but the Lady Cavaliers reeled off three straight wins to win the match, 25-18, 25-19 and 25-21.

    “It was a close match and Christ Church has a really strong team,” BHS coach Taylor Roberts said. “We battled, but didn’t play as well as we could.

    “It was close and a play here and there really was the difference,” Roberts said.

  • Moore makes plays for BHS

    BUFORD – In a nutshell, Buford High School senior football player Ryan Moore is all over the field.

    When it comes to the 2017 Jackets’ season, that would be a maroon and gold bull’s-eye.

    Moore, a four-year member of the BHS football team, doesn’t see the sideline much.

    That’s because he sees the field often.

    On offense, Moore, an all-region pick, can play quarterback and receiver. On defense, he can be counted on at safety and cornerback.

  • County duo selected for North-...

    A pair of Lancaster County trench aces has been selected to play in the 70th annual Touchstone Energy Cooperatives North-South Bowl on Dec. 9 in Myrtle Beach.

    Lancaster High School senior offensive lineman Keavius Barnes and Andrew Jackson High’s Dalton McKittrick have been chosen to play for the North team in the annual all-star football game which draws the state’s top senior football players.

    The game kicks off at 12:30 p.m. at Myrtle Beach’s Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium.

  • York zaps Lancaster, 46-14

    YORK – In seemingly a mere flash, Lancaster’s focus for an upset football win over No. 8 York was blinded by a lightning bolt.

    The Bruins, up 14-0 and working on a stunning road win, saw it all fade in the cool fall air at York High School on Friday night.

    Cat-quick La’darius Allison returned a LHS kickoff 84 yards for a touchdown to ignite the host Cougars on a 46-14 win over the Bruins on Friday night.

  • Central tops Jackets, 30-14

    PAGELAND – Buford had tough going at Central Pageland on Friday night, falling to the Eagles, 30-14.

    Central’s running game proved vital in the Eagles’ 16-point win. Two CHS running backs and quarterback Quan Chambers combined for 310 rushing yards.

    Buford, rated No. 12 in Class AA, on the other hand, couldn’t muster much offense. The Jackets had 160 total yards. BHS quarterback Ryan Moore passed for 126 yards and Dalton Small led the ground attack with 39 yards.

    Early on, it looked to be a well-matched game.

    KERSHAW – The Andrew Jackson Volunteers found defensive traction in the second half of their homecoming game against Lee Central, but it was not enough to overcome the talented Stallions.

    The gallant Volunteers fell to the Stallions, 26-14.

    AJ took the ball first for a seven-play drive for 38 yards, but a field goal fell short. Chaz DeBruhl keyed the drive with a 32-yard pass to Bailey Johnson.

  • Murphy-led Dogs bite Warriors

    INDIAN LAND – The Camden Bulldogs entered their game with Indian Land needing a win to make the Class AAA Upper State football playoffs.

    The Bulldogs, 2-7, 1-2, brought their running game in Jericho Murphy, and he responded with 267 yards rushing on 24 carries and three touchdowns to go with a stingy second-half Bulldog defense for a 31-17 win over the Warriors.

    Indian Land forced a Camden punt and quickly moved to the Bulldogs’ 25.
