  • Ronnie Mosley wins Helms...

    Ronnie Mosley had the dominant car during the Robbie Helms Memorial race, but there was a sight to see during the pre-race lap.

    Robbie Helms’ race car, driven by his son-in-law Brent Hodges, led the field under a pre-race tribute to Helms.

    All who followed Helms career know he was a huge South Carolina Gamecock fan.

    Helms bled the Gamecocks colors, garnet and black.

    On this night at Lancaster Motor Speedway, fans might have thought they were in Columbia at 80,250-seat Williams-Brice Stadium.

  • Jackets honor ace golfers

    The Region IV-AA champion Buford High School golf team honored a pair of BHS veteran golfers with the Jackets top awards for the 2018 season.

    Caleb Henson and “T” Sutton were named the BHS golf MVPs for the 2018 season.

    Henson, an all-state selection, carded a 73 to finish fourth in the individual medalist competition at the Class AA state golf tournament at the Mount Vintage Golf Club in North Augusta earlier this month.

    Sutton, an all-region golfer, followed with a 79 during the Class AA state tournament.

  • P-31 splits to cap Union series

    The Lancaster Post 31 American Legion baseball team split in its final two games in the season-opening series with Union Post 22 on Saturday at Eggleton Field.

    Lancaster, in the opener Saturday, dropped a 4-3 loss, but rebounded in game two for the split in a 4-3 win in 11 innings.

    The first game was a completion of a game, which was halted in the top of the fifth inning Thursday when a late afternoon thunderstorm washed out the game.

  • These four guys were fabulous

    Over last weekend, I heard the familiar phrase, “We lost some good men out there.”
    In reflecting over the last few weeks, those words have resonated with me.
    Think about it, and consider the likes of Danny Crolley, Gene Wallace, Charles Mathis and Furman Hance.
    Lancaster, in relation to sports, wouldn’t be where it is without those selfless men, who, in baseball terms, stepped to the plate and delivered each time, even with a wicked curve tossed their way.

  • Bruins honor diamond stars

    The Lancaster High School baseball team has honored a host of players for the 2018 season under first-year head coach Trevor Hammond.
    The Bruins, 9-11, 3-7 in region play, saluted senior all-region shortstop Austin Catoe as the team MVP.
    Catoe, an all-region selection for the third time in his four-year career at LHS, hit .375 with six runs batted in, 11 runs scored and six stolen bases.

  • LHS tennis repeats region title

    The two-time Region III-AAAA champion Lancaster High School boys tennis team celebrated its banner season with its annual awards night May 16.
    The Bruins, led by second-year head coach Ray Sapp, went 11-3, including a 9-1 record in region play.
    Lancaster’s lone region loss came in a 4-2 defeat at York High School, but the Bruins, in the rematch, registered a 6-0 win over the Cougars.

  • P-31 home opener rained out,...

    Rain prevailed in the Lancaster Post 31 American Legion baseball opener Thursday night at Eggleton Field.
    Union Post 22, which took a 10-2 win over Lancaster Post 31 on Monday night at the Timken Sports Complex in Union, built a 3-1 lead going to the top of the fifth inning.
    Then, as P-31 athletic officer Scott Cato noted, “the bottom fell out.”
    “It rained hard and the field was flooded,” he said.

  • Ultimate Super Late Model Series...

    For years Lancaster Motor Speedway fans have begged for a chance to get the Ultimate Super Late Models Series at LMS.
    For years, it has always just been the Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series as the only Super Late Model Series to run at LMS on a Saturday night during the season.
    Well, come June 2, that all changes.
    The track’s new ownership and management have listened to the fans.

  • LHS star Catoe receives Dixie...
  • Helms Memorial race slated...

    Lancaster Speedway returns to racing action Saturday night with a special tribute race at the half-mile dirt oval.

    The Renegade Division will feature the Robbie Helms Memorial Race, paying $1,700 to win.

    The 17-lap main event and the heat races will be paying $117 all for the Renegade Division.

    Helms, who died in December, raced in the Renegade Division for years.

    His driving style earned him his share of checkers as the veteran campaigner always put on the best show for the fans in his No. 17 car.
