Comfort is knowing that even though your team only scores one fourth quarter basket, you still win a game by double figures.
Here's a simple math equation.
Some things never change.
Rarely does a college women's basketball coach get a second look while attending a high school girl's game.
Several years ago, Ted Monroe was having a conversation with a high school coach from the Upstate whose team had just won a state championship in football.
On a night in which Camden High would rename the basketball court in memory of its former girls basketball coach Mike Culp, the current edition of the Lady Bulldogs looked like one of Culp's versions of the Runnin' Rockettes in Friday's 61-47 loss to visiting Marlboro County.
Fittingly, the one shot which Camden hit from beyond the 3-point arc on Friday night on the Coach Michael G. Culp Court was waved off due to a traveling violation.
What's the best way to cool off a hot shooter? Easy, don't let him get his hands on the ball.
Faced with a dilemma which comes with the territory when playing Spring Valley, Lugoff-Elgin girls basketball coach Von Duncan was not ready to slow Tuesday's contest against the guests to a crawl as did Blythewood in a 40-8 loss to the Lady Vikings last week.
As a three-sport athlete --- and a state champion in each --- in the late 1950s at Camden High, the 6-foot-4 John Speaks stood above the crowd.
On the football field, it sometimes takes a 300-pound behemoth to be able to move Vonnie Holliday. Off the gridiron, however, the smallest person or a cause in need of help can thrust the Camden native into action like no offensive lineman can do to the 6-foot-5, 285-pounder.
Tuesday: North Central, Dreher at Camden Military Academy (WR – 5 p.m.); Camden at Lakewood (BB – 6 p.m.); Spring Valley at Lugoff-Elgin (BB – 6 p.m.); North Central at C.A. Johnson (BB – 6:30 p.m.)
Returning to his native Ireland prior to Christmas, Desmond Fogarty saw his homeland blanketed by snow, making traveling in the region a bit dicey.
Camden High School and the CHS athletic department will celebrate the life and career of its former girls basketball coach, Mike Culp, when the school names its basketball court inside the CHS gym after Culp during next Friday night's (Jan. 21) home game with Marlboro County.
Fielding a team which is consistently inconsistent is a coach's nightmare.
Kershaw County will make its long-awaited American Legion State Tournament debut on Saturday when Post 17 takes on Rock Hill in the third (scheduled for 4:30 p.m.) game at Riley Park in Sumter.
Perched in front of their dugout, members of the Kershaw County American Legion baseball team started leaning as they prepared to rush the field after Bradwin Salmond's diving grab of Mark Allen Nash's liner to right field put the locals on the door step of a long-awaited trip to the state American Legion tournament.
Before they left following Wednesday morning's off-season contioning session, members of the Lugoff-Elgin football team took a knee and listened to their head coach who was in his third full day on the job.
One night after heavy rains in the Georgetown area forced the postponement of Tuesday's game two of the state American Legion second round playoff series between Kershaw County and host Georgetown, weather problems stopped the following evening's game dead in its tracks.
It was a normal day which was about to take an abrupt U-turn.
