Nothing to lose

L-E put its best foot forward in trying to end CHS hex

The underdog challenger (Lugoff-Elgin) went 15 rounds (four quarters) with the champion (Camden). Although the challenger did survive several knockdowns (four touchdowns), the plucky underdog did manage to avoid a 10-count (complete rout).

How can a team which stumbled 47-3 last week at Newberry turn around and play a much closer contest, even though the final margin was 27-6?

“The biggest thing was our rivalry with Camden,” said L-E mentor Eddie Whitt. “I’m not so certain that at Newberry, we weren’t looking ahead to Camden. We were pretty much out of conference and playoff hopes and I think our players were looking towards Camden instead of concentrating on Newberry.”

From one field to another

Former quarterback Harry Lynch still calls the signals

Sports are in Harry Lynch’s blood.

He was a top-notch quarterback at Camden High School and a record-breaking signal caller at The Citadel.

And although it may seem tame in comparison, his current position as superintendent of the Springdale Race Course also satisfies his desire to be close to competition.

Although Lynch’s job doesn’t directly involve the sport of racing, the sporting atmosphere at the course makes the position a perfect one for him. “I’ve always been involved in sports,” he said. “I like it (the job). I enjoy doing it. They’re good people.”

Lynch first began to shine at Camden High School, where in the late ‘70s he led the Bulldogs to countless wins. Lynch commanded the Bulldogs under the careful supervision of his father, head football coach Red Lynch.

Making it official

Funderburk signs, seals and is ready to deliver for USC

Natalie Funderburk could hardly control the smile which stayed across her face on Wednesday.
