  • 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.

    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.”
