  • Sports Talk: Tigers roar, rip...

    Back in the opening week of the 2018 college football season, I recall a telephone conversation I had with my brother Bill, an avid Clemson fan who lives in Jacksonville, Fla.
    It was early September and he along with his wife, Frances, an Alabama graduate, had attended the Crimson Tide’s opener in Orlando, Fla.
    The Tide rolled to an impressive 51-14 win over Louisville in one of those opening week classic match-ups.
    Bill said Bama was simply on “another level.”
    The Tide, he said, was here, and all the rest was below Bama.

  • Lady Warriors end skid with...

    The Indian Land High School girls basketball skid has ended.
    The Lady Warriors, launching the 2019 portion of their 2018-19 hoops schedule, did so in a big way, rolling to a 61-34 win over Region IV-AAA foe Chester High School at the CHS gym on Friday night.
    The resounding 27-point win snapped a 34-game skein going back to the end of the 2016-17 season when ILHS dropped a 53-31 playoff loss to Emerald High School of Greenwood on Feb. 16, 2017.

  • Warriors rebound, net split

    INDIAN LAND – The Indian Land Warriors got back on track, rolling to an 80-56 home win over county rival Buford on Monday night in the ILHS gym.

    Lancaster launched its Region III-AAAA hoops schedule with double delight on Friday night in York.

    The LHS boys, who have won three of their last four games – all away from home, started strong on the way to the 22-point win.
    Lancaster, 6-7, 1-0, opened a 23-13 lead after one period and pushed their advantage to 40-26 at the break.

  • Sports Talk: Tide has link to...

    Clemson and Alabama have history.
    Really, the Tide and the Tigers do.
    Stop playing Tiger Rag and doing the well-known Clemson cadence for a moment, you know 1-2-3-4, C-L-E-M-S-O-N and consider the facts.
    The national title game Monday is the 19th meeting between the two schools, with Bama holding a 14-4 edge. Of course, it has been tighter as of late, 2-1 in the last three clashes, with Clemson’s win two years ago giving the Tigers their second national crown in college football.

    Andrew Jackson, ranked fourth in Class A-AA wrestling, split a pair of matches at county rival Buford High School on Thursday night.
    The Vols, 9-5 on the season with a 3-2 region record, topped match host Buford, but fell to CATA, Central Academy of Technology and Arts of Union County, N.C.
    CATA also topped Buford to go 2-0 on the night.
    AJ, in the match with the host Jackets, posted a 57-21 win over Buford.

    The Lancaster County Parks and Recreation Commission 9-10 soccer all-stars gave a valiant effort and fell just short in their quest for a state championship last month in Walhalla.
    The Lancaster County stars, who represented the district that included Lancaster, Buford, Heath Springs and Kershaw, dropped a tough loss on penalty kicks to finish as the state runner-up to Bluffton, the Southern District champion.
    The Lancaster County 9-10 stars, who won the Central District title to qualify for the state tournament, opened play in the tourney facing host Walhalla.
