  • P-31 bounces back, bounces...

    After the Post 31 Junior Baseball team steamrolled Gaffney, 8-1 on Wednesday night to advance in state tournament play, coach Dickie Howard was upbeat about what he had just seen on the Eggleton Field diamond.
    Lancaster combined solid defense and timely hitting with a complete game from starting pitcher Chas DeBruhl to win the best-of-three playoff series.
    Howard, though, was just as pleased by the team’s dugout chatter as he was by their performance.

  • Sports Talk: Hometown baseball...

    Attending a summer baseball game to root for the home team is still a lot of fun.
    And it’s especially meaningful when that team represents a hometown.
    That’s what you’ll see during an American Legion Post 31 baseball game at Eggleton Field.
    While filling in on the sports desk, I got a phone call from one of the parents of a Post 31 Junior Baseball team player, who has fallen in love with Legion baseball.

    Darlings, Angels and Ponytails; don’t let those names fool you. When it comes to softball, the trio of Lancaster all-star teams that start state play Saturday are anything but genteel.

    Darlings
    The Darlings, ages 7-8, play Midland Valley at 2 p.m. July 13 in Moncks Corner.
    The Darlings averaged 10 runs a game in the district tournament, but coach Dillon Hydrick said that the local team’s strong suit is defense.

    However, that may change on Monday or Tuesday with the addition of two possible series.   
    Should that happen, details will be announced on social media at www.lancastersuperspeedway.com or on the Lancaster Motor Speedway’s Facebook page (Lancaster Motor Speedway Caskey/Munn).

  • Post 31 steamrolls Gaffney 8-1,...

    The Post 31 Junior Baseball team steamrolled Gaffney, 8-1 on Wednesday night to advance in state tournament play.
    Lancaster combined solid defense and timely hitting with a complete game from starting pitcher Chas DeBruhl to win the best-of-three playoff series.
    DeBruhl handcuffed a hard-hitting Gaffney Post 109 team much of the night. The hard-throwing left-hander struck out five batters, allowing three walks and a scant two hits.

  • Post 31 loses playoff opener to...

    American Legion Post 31 Junior Baseball coach Dickie Howard didn’t sugarcoat his team’s home loss Monday night to Gaffney Post 109 in their best-of-three playoff series.
    “It was rough…. We just made too many mistakes,” Howard said.
    The visiting American Legion Post 109 junior team scored three runs in the top of the first inning and silenced the P-31 bats, winning the road game by a 10-0 margin.

    The 48th pick in the 2017 draft, Thornwell just finished his second year in the NBA.

  • Lightning strikes for Justin...

    DAYTONA – Talk about a perfect NASCAR storm.
    Justin Haley was “just riding around” in 27th place Sunday during the running of the Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona International Speedway.
    The Indiana native readily admits to being a long shot with no expectation to win, but that’s just what happened.
    Haley, 20, is the second-youngest Cup series winner at Daytona.
    “It was never even a thought in my mind,” Haley said, after winning his first Monster Energy Series race in only his third start.
