'Second-best' is of little solace to CHS tennis team

When Roger Smoak called his friend and Chapin High boys' head tennis coach, John Rodgers, to congratulate him on the Eagles' third consecutive AAA state championship, the veteran Bulldog boss heard the phrase which would make any coach feel good, at first, before cringing after thinking about it for a while.

Two-time state champs put an end to Bulldogs’ state tournament run

While a win Tuesday would not have changed anything from a loss to Chapin in the 2010 AAA state championship match, Camden High tennis coach Roger Smoak felt a lot better about his team's chances at downing the Eagles in Camden than he may have about winning at a neutral site in Sumter two years ago.

Banged-up Knights come up short against Indian Land, 20-7

As his team boarded the bus for Friday's game with Indian Land, North Central head football coach Louis Clyburn just about had enough healthy bodies to form a hockey line, never mind an offensive line.

Revamped Vikings next up for L-E

CMA blindsided by onside kicks in loss

Recovering one onside kick in a game is great. You do it twice and you raise some eyebrows. Getting the hat trick draws the ire of the opposing coach. But when they all happen in the final six minutes of the same game on three successive attempts?
