  • Sports Talk: Glad we had Henry...

    In just over a month, the City of Lancaster will have new leadership.

    That’s ahead, but today – Father’s Day, that annual mid-June Sunday, we tip our hat to dad, I’m thinking about a man, who was, among many, a fine father for our town, “The Red Rose City.”

    Back earlier this spring, we lost a couple of “good men,” who were solid leaders for Lancaster, within the same week – John Howard and Henry Johnson.

    I knew both of them well, but I go back a l-o-n-g way with Henry.

  • P-31 pounds York 10-1

    The Lancaster American Legion Post 31 baseball team broke through in a big way, taking a 10-1 win over York Post 66 on Thursday night at Eggleton Field.

    P-31, 2-4, built an early 3-1 edge and steadily pulled away for the nine-run win.

    Lancaster, earlier in the week, had dropped two games to York in League V Legion baseball play.

    York rolled to a 14-0 road win on Monday and took a 14-9 comeback win at the Post 66 field on Wednesday night.

    P-31 has two home games this week when it hosts Fort Mill Post 43.

  • First Phillip Knight Memorial...

    Lancaster Motor Speedway will host the first Phillip Knight Memorial Race on Saturday.

    Phillip Knight is my late father, and his race comes a day before my birthday.

    With Father’s Day this weekend and this race coming up, there’s a lot of emotion, to say the least.

    The race has major money on the line in every division racing that night.

  • Robertson moving to Northwestern

    Coach Sha’Ron Robertson’s hoops success has her moving on and moving up.

    Robertson, who guided the Andrew Jackson High School Lady Volunteers to back-to-back region basketball championships in two seasons leading the program, is leaving AJ to head a Class AAAAA girls basketball program.

    Robertson, who has been at AJ nine years, eight seasons with the Lady Vols basketball program, is the new girls basketball coach at Northwestern High School in Rock Hill.

  • York tops Post 31 in comeback win

    The result was the same, but Lancaster Post 31 first-year coach Jimmy Jackson could see some progress in P-31’s 14-9 road loss to York Post 66 on Wednesday night.

    Lancaster, after dropping a rain-shortened 14-0 League V loss to York at home on Monday night, rebounded to battle Post 66 in the five-run loss.

  • Huey looking for repeat BROLM win

    The popular Blue Ridge Outlaw Late Model Series will be back at Lancaster Motor Speedway on Saturday night.

    In the BROLM’s last visit to the half-mile oval, Matthew Nance and Mike Huey battled for the lead for most of the race in a tight track battle.

    Nance crossed the checkered flag in first, but after the post-race inspection by Blue Ridge Outlaw Late Models Series owner Jason Smoot, Nance was disqualified.

    That gave the win to fan favorite and track veteran Mike Huey.
