Andrew Jackson used strong second halves to take a doubleheaders weep over visiting North central in Region 4-AA basketball action in Kershaw last Friday night.

In the girls’ game, the host Lady Volunteers used a 21-9 third quarter surge to pave the way for a 67-43 win over North Central.

The Lady Knights trailed, 16-13, after the first quarter and were on the short end of a 30-25 score at halftime. The Lady Vols got hot in the third stanza and extended their lead to 51-34 entering the fourth quarter.

The loss dropped Mitch Lowder’s girls to 5-9 overall and 1-5 in conference play.

“We had no answer for their inside/outside game. Plus a cold third quarter shooting from the field hurt us,” said Lowder. “We played hard and intense; I appreciate the efforts of all of our girls.”

Sophomore guard Kali Tomlin led NC with 14 points with freshman guard Peyton Holley was next with 13 points. Freshmen Madison Dixon and Ciaria Black added five points each.

In the boys’ contest, after playing AJ to an 11-11 standoff after one quarter, the visiting Knights came home with a 74-48 loss.

The setback left Kerry Hayes’ troops with a 2-4 mark in Region 4-AA and a 5-9 overall record.

The Volunteers led, 30-26, at intermission before outscoring NC, 23-12, in the third quarter to carry a 53-38 edge into the final eight minutes of play.


Lugoff-Elgin splits with Chapin: Stepping out of Region 6-4A play, Lugoff-Elgin divided a Friday night twinbill with visiting Chapin inside the Demons Den.

The L-E boys put an end to their three-game slide by knocking off the Eagles, 52-41.

Senior forward Marquil Thomas led Garrett Knight’s charges with 13 points while junior guard Kevon Roberson added 10. Senior center Elliott Campbell chipped in with seven points for the Demons.

In the girls’ contest, Chapin used an 18-2 first quarter run to hand the Lady Demons a 55-19 loss.


Camden gets win, loss in Columbia: The Camden boys closed their first go-through in Region 4-AAA action with a 52-35 win over visiting Columbia.

The Bulldogs improved to 3-1 in league play thanks to the victory in a game in which they led, 35-19, at halftime.

The Camden girls fell to 1-3 in 4-AAA play in being dealt a 63-48 setback in the evening’s opening game.
