    Nehemiah McGriff’s final high school basketball game was quite a finish for the Bruins’ senior player.

  • Barfield back to lead ILHS...

    Indian Land High School softball has a new look this season, but one quite familiar with ILHS Lady Warriors’ diamond success.

    Monica Barfield, who won three Class A state softball titles, 2004, 2005 and 2006, has returned to the Lady Warriors’ dugout as the head coach to lead the program.

    Barfield has a solid cast of players who earned their share of experience last spring in IL’s final season in Class AA softball.

  • Experience propelling Lady...

    The 2017 Buford High School soccer team, in its third season, is kicking up its heels.

    The BHS Lady Jackets, off to a 6-0 start with six shutouts on the season, have even surprised third-year coach Bob Bowen.

    “We’ve played well, but I didn’t know at this point we would be undefeated on the season,” he said. “I think what is giving us a spark is that we have our share of players who have been in our program three years.”

  • Lady Jackets blitz Knights

    The Buford High School girls soccer team kept their unbeaten mark intact with a sixth straight shutout Thursday at North Central High School of Boonetown.

    The Lady Jackets, 6-0 on the season, forged a 7-0 halftime lead on the Lady Knights on the way to the 8-0 victory.

    BHS senior forward Victoria Hinson paced the Lady Jackets with two goals and an assist. Emma Larson also had a pair of goals.

  • Sports Talk: Recalling Marquette...

    Late Sunday afternoon when I saw Marquette pop up as South Carolina’s first-round foe in the NCAA men’s tournament, I had a flashback to my younger days.

    Seems like it was my junior high days at North Junior High School, now North Elementary School. Yep, many moons ago and I’m telling my age.

    I recall hearing about Marquette at school, but we’re talking history not hoops.
