When you are a club program which depends on sponsors and, sometimes, money out of your own pocket in order to survive, every dollar and/or small bit of spare change can mean that you live to see another practice or competition.
After having been split into four classifications --- five, if you include the Big 16 in 4A --- the South Carolina High School League is considering splitting its member football schools into five classifications beginning with the 2014-15 academic year.
On a night in which Lugoff-Elgin was without its leading scorer for the entire night, North Central head coach Mitch Lowder wondered where his team, which played so well in the first half, went for the final two quarters.
This is one Christmas present which the Lugoff-Elgin basketball team will not have to return.
Ron McKie remembers the night as if it were yesterday. He recalls how a high school gymnasium, packed for a pre-Christmas basketball tournament game, went silent in a matter of seconds. How an alley was formed by people in the commons area at Hilton Head High School when the stretcher carrying Marcus Warren was wheeled through the area to an awaiting ambulance. Listening to the Camden High School boys' basketball coach tell it, the scene ...
There isn't enough sugar in a candy store to have made this medicine go down. One week after Camden took his team out of its offensive rhythm by employing several different zone defenses in a 62-61 Bulldog victory a week ago, Lugoff-Elgin head coach Derek Belton took a "what's good for the goose is good for gander" approach when the two rivals met Friday night inside the Dog Pound. Causing the hosts fits by changing ...
If steam actually could come out of a person's ears, then the smoke emanating from those of Natalie Jeffcoat could have steamed up half the windows in downtown Camden.
Derek Belton smiled and shrugged his shoulders as soon as the question was put to him about his team's final trip down the floor in Tuesday's 67-64 loss to visiting Andrew Jackson.
Who needs a grease board when the spoken word will do. Forsaking a diagram of the X's and O's, Lugoff-Elgin girls' basketball coach Von Duncan used halftime of Tuesday night's game with visiting Andrew Jackson to appeal to her team's heart … not to mention their pride in trying to overcome a 23-17 halftime deficit. The second 16 minutes were a different story, as an energized Lady Demon squad took it to the Lady Volunteers ...
The LCSC Kershaw County boys' U18 soccer team finished off their season by winning the South Carolina Open Cup.
There are ways to get your teams' attention and then, there was the nugget which Camden head coach Ron McKie threw out to his team as they were clinging to a 62-61 lead over host Lugoff-Elgin with 2.9 seconds left in Friday's first of two meetings between the two rivals.
As has been her team's M.O. since taking over the reins to the Camden's girls basketball team, Natalie Jeffcoat has put the "run" into the Runnin' Lady Dogs.
For the second time in their last two games, the North Central girls' basketball team failed to score a point in the first period.
There was a plan of attack for when Andrew Jackson went to a match-up zone. What North Central could not have prepared for was the abundance of turnovers which it would commit against the Volunteers' non-pressing defensive scheme. Without having to unleash any full-court pressure, AJ was able to jump to an early double-digit lead against the Knights and leave The Castle in Boonetown with a convincing 70-47 win over Andy Johnson's charges. A ball-hawking ...
That first win of the season sure doesn't come with many side benefits. After having opened the season with a pair of losses, the Lugoff-Elgin girls closed out the first week of their season with by doubling up visiting Chesterfield, 58-29, Friday night. While the victory left the Lady Demons felling better about themselves, head coach Von Duncan said her squad should not expect cookies and cake when they arrive at the gym today to ...
One line, plenty of waiting.
What better time of year to clean up things around the house than spring?
In the days and weeks following the passing of Jimmy Creed Jr. last October, Camden County Club head professional, Matt McCarley, racked his brain as to what would be the most fitting tribute to his close friend and one of the club's most popular members.
There was hardly a word said as to last fall's 2-8 campaign before, during or after Camden's spring football practice for the 2013 season.
When Freedom Child was declared a non-starter in the Wood Memorial on April 6, the 3-year-old's shot at the Kentucky Derby went by the boards.
It was as gentle a demotion --- if there is such a thing --- as anyone could expect to receive when they were presented with the bad news.
