  • IL’s Hunter will get soccer...

    INDIAN LAND – Reagan Hunter has beat the challenge and is going to play soccer at the next level.
    Hunter, who has endured two knee surgeries, is going to Lander University in Greenwood to play for the Bearcats.
    Those injuries have kept Hunter out of action since the 2017 ILHS girls season.
    “I would like to thank my future coach, Chris Ayer, for believing in my will to do whatever it takes to return to the sport I love and recruiting me during the midst of my extensive recovery from ACL reconstruction,” Hunter said.

  • Lancaster Motor Speedway Extreme...

    The Extreme 4 Division will be the highlight of the April 27 racing action at Lancaster Motor Speedway as drivers vie for the $1,000 first-place purse in the M&M Garage Muffler & Tire Extreme 4 Shootout.
    LMS already has one of the largest and toughest fields of Extreme 4 drivers in the Carolinas.
    But that sort of big-money payday is sure to lure some additional top four-cylinder drivers in the area to the half-mile dirt track.

  • Small plays big in Dixie Baseball

    It takes a bit of conniving to get Larry Small to stand in the limelight.
    The Lancaster Dixie Baseball League board members lured Small to the mound to throw out the ceremonial first-pitch on March 23, the opening day of LDB’s 61st season.
    After a long, but no way complete speech of what he has given local youth baseball, LDB secretary Jill Laney said, “Mr. Small from this day forward, Field 6 will be named the Larry Small Field.”

    INDIAN LAND – Dropping three straight games to finish the regular season is not how any baseball team wants to end things, but that is exactly what the Indian Land High School Warriors will have to live with until the Class 3-A playoffs start.
    The Warriors lost all three games they played during the Queen City Invitational, a tournament in which they hosted.
