When you father is a high school baseball coach, you spend your springs, summers and falls on the diamond and in dugouts, right?
While some in Kershaw County have griped and moaned about the unseasonable spring weather, when you are from Upstate New York and finally see grass on the baseball field well, let Randy Stokes describe the scene at Optimist Field Monday morning.
Wilson right-hander Trevor Edgerton broke three Camden bats. Camden righty, Austen Haney, broke the Tigers' spirit. Throwing four perfect frames while allowing one hit in six innings of work, Haney and Camden doubled up Wilson, 4-2, in Monday's nightcap of the Kershaw-Richland Wooden Bat Spring Break Tournament played at American Legion Park in Camden. Haney, a sophomore, set down the first dozen batters he faced --- in order --- before giving up a five-pitch ...
C-I (Camden, S.C.) sports editor On the graciousness scale, what Liza Towell Boyd did in last year's $20,000 USHJA International Derby presented by The Tack Room at the Camden Spring Classic was along the same lines as hosting a dinner party and putting out Cheez Whiz and stale crackers for the guests while stashing the carved roast beef for herself. Riding her top horse on her home course, the Camden resident scored a pair of ...
Janet Elliot was concerned about how Alajmal and jockey Ross Geraghty started Saturday's $50,000 Carolina Cup steeplechase.
If the Springdale Race Course were a Las Vegas casino, Dave Washer would be the person you would want rolling the dice for you in a game of craps.
It just might be time to break out the rabbit's foot, find a four-leaf clover or, taking a page from "Major League," sacrifice a live chicken because doing everything in reverse did not work for North Central baseball coach Robbie Cash.
Proving, once again, that he can train --- and win --- with anything which has four hooves, a mane and a halter, Hall of Fame conditioner Jonathan Sheppard picked up a rare score over timber on the undercard of Saturday's Carolina Cup.
Lose three. Gain one. Led by reigning National Steeplechase Association champion novice hurdler Alajmal, Saturday's 81st running of the $50,000 Carolina Cup feature chase at the Springdale Race Course is expected to go off with seven starters. The Camden spring classic has reverted conditions to being the first leg of the National Steeplechase Association's Sport of Kings Novice Series. The $50,000 Queens Cup in Charlotte on April 27, and the $75,000 Marcellus Frost, to be ...
Maybe, this is a sign that Zac Bowers' luck is changing for the better. Bowers has been Lugoff-Elgin's poster boy for hard-luck starters. Tuesday, however, that all took a positive turn as the junior was backed by 11 runs on eight hits as the Demons evened their Region 4-4A record at 2-2 with an 11-3 victory over visiting Ridge View. The win was the first in four decisions for the right-hander who, in his first ...
Born in Kentucky before moving to England for a short time, and later, moving to Kirkwood, Pa., before being sent to Camden, Alajmal might be considered a citizen of the world.
For at least this one cold and soggy Saturday, Aiken's Ford Conger Field could have been dubbed Springdale Race Course south.
That grimace on the face of Randy Stokes spoke volumes. Standing a few steps beyond the first base bag, the Lugoff-Elgin head baseball coach talked, in halting sentences, about what he had just witnessed. For a team which had been shut out in their previous two games, Tuesday's 5-2 loss to visiting Richland Northeast was hardly a step in the right direction. In fact, Stokes said, his team regressed on a night in which the ...
Sophomore Erin Blizzard fired a perfect game at visiting Richland Northeast as Lugoff-Elgin rolled to a 10-0, five-inning victory on Tuesday night.
As a tie match drew to a close in regulation play, all signs pointed to this one going to penalty kicks.
Both the Camden and Lugoff-Elgin varsity football teams will conclude their spring practice sessions with scrimmages on Friday night and the public is invited to attend both contests.
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.
New classification. Same results.
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.
