  • Woolford Extreme 4 winner

    The Lancaster Super Speedway wait was worth it.

    Lancaster Super Speedway officials had a long wait during a rainstorm from about 7:15 to 8:30 p.m. Saturday. On the radar, it was the only Carolinas rain storm that night, so LSS owner Doug McManus waited it out and the main events were a draw and run, skipping the heat races.

    - The night’s final race was the Extreme 4 non-winners race and Keith Woolford dominated the race in posting his first win.

  • Buford turns back Warriors

    BUFORD – Buford High fourth-year football coach Tripp Watts has been focused on seeing the Jackets turnaround their turnover troubles from last season.

    Watts, looking back over the 2016 season, said the BHS giveaways played a major role in the Jackets’ 3-8 finish.

    So in the Jackets’ opener with rival Indian Land, Watts saw BHS once again lose the turnover battle, but not the game.

    BUFORD – If it was not clear before Friday night, Buford versus Indian Land is Lancaster County's best football rivalry.

    The latest game was typical of the series: intense, with a number of emotional and momentum swings, and thanks to the turnovers and penalties, it felt longer than a “Lord of the Rings” movie.

  • Frye coaching at Newberry College

    Former Andrew Jackson High School head football coach C.J. Frye is coaching at the next level this season.

    Frye, who guided the AJ Volunteers for two seasons, has joined the Newberry College Wolves football staff, coaching the team’s tight ends.
