  • Sports Talk: Loss of Kellin...

    There’s a void as the 2019 Lancaster County high school football season nears.
    With each season and each team, there’s always holes to fill, but the gap I’m thinking about is the loss of a fixture on the Andrew Jackson High School football sidelines.
    That’s David Kellin, who died last month at his Kershaw home.
    When I say a void, I truly mean it.
    A few seasons back, we lost our AJ Vols sports correspondent just before the season began.
    We were in a bind as the season was quickly drawing close.

  • Gamecocks hope to profit from...

    The 2019 edition of the University of South Carolina football team might be Coach Will Muschamp’s best team in his four seasons, but it might not be reflected in USC’s final record.
    Wes Mitchell, of Gamecock Central and the guest speaker at the Lancaster County Gamecock Club’s football kickoff cookout at the Lancaster Moose Lodge on Monday night, said he feels Muschamp might be fielding his best overall team, but the challenging schedule might play in USC’s final record.

  • Buford High set to host second...

  • Extreme 4 has $1,000 purse Aug....

    The Extreme 4 Division at Lancaster Motor Speedway will be racing for $1,000 to win Aug. 24.
    This race marks the second time the Extreme 4 Division will be racing for $1,000 to win, because the second annual Phillip Knight Memorial race, held Aug. 10, was also a $1,000 to win.
    Chris Baker posted his second straight Phillip Knight Memorial race win and the $1,000 payday last Saturday night at LMS.
    Baker said he’s hoping the win will provide key momentum as he seeks his second straight win for another big payday at the half-mile dirt track.

  • Roberts returns to club champion

    Scott Roberts is back on top at the Lancaster Golf Club.
    Roberts, who was denied a third straight LGC title last year by Lancaster High School upstart golfer Trey Crenshaw, returned to the links throne with a two-shot win over another Lancaster High School star golfer Simon Wright on Sunday afternoon.
    Roberts’ close win gave him six club crowns, three in the last four years. He now has the most club championships at the LGC with six, one more than Bobby Bumgardner, a former Lancaster High School star golfer who later played at Furman University.
