Led by a 20th place finish from senior Jordan Wood, the Camden High girls' cross country team finished fifth in last Wednesday's Region 4-AAA championship held at Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site.
BLYTHEWOOD -- Lugoff-Elgin had no answer on defense for a potent Blythewood offensive attack.
BLYTHEWOOD – It was as if Westwood stole the sheet music which Camden was playing off of in the first half, leaving the Bulldogs out of tune in the second 24 minutes of Friday's Region 4-AAA pairing at Richland District 2 Stadium.
COLUMBIA – There is no way, even in this day and age of new math, that three feet equals 101 yards.
Victories, even those which put an end to a 20-game losing skid, have all the shelf life of a one-time teen idol.

Louis Clyburn must be wondering what he and his team might have done to deserve the type of treatment they are getting from the football gods.
It might be a hard sell if the North Central football staff did not have visual proof that Eau Claire is not as bad as its 0-7 record would indicate.
This could be a week in which Camden learns plenty about itself.
This is, literally, adding injury to insult.
Pitching on just four days' rest is not common in high school baseball. But recently, Camden's Grey Hoke has been anything but ordinary.
For a scant few seconds, players from both benches spilled out onto the apron of the infield waiting to see the landing spot of Bradwin Salmond's drive to right field in the eighth inning of Tuesday's Lugoff-Elgin game with visiting Richland Northeast.
Seated beneath a plaque honoring the achievements of his uncle and former North Central and then, Super Bowl champion cornerback Tyronne Drakeford, Omar Johnson smiled as he signed a National Letter of Intent to play football at Methodist College.
In this age of baseball in which pitchers are always looking to add another pitch to their repertoire, Zac Bowers is in the reduction mode.
