For the better part of one half, you would have been hard-pressed to find anyone in the Lugoff-Elgin gym who would have told you that visiting Irmo was playing like the nation's 23rd ranked boys basketball team.

While Lugoff-Elgin stays at home, the Camden and North Central wrestling teams will put on their traveling shoes for Saturday's South Carolina High School League state wrestling championship tournament.
Having seen teammate Robert Gardner carried off the mat with what turned out to be a severe neck injury at the Carolina Invitational on Jan. 19, Camden Middle School wrestlers Sylvester (S.J.) Lucas and Clinton (C.J.) Jones had no other choice than to go out and win the event for their injured teammate.
Seeing as how visiting Westwood suited up just seven players for Tuesday's game with Camden, it can be surmised that the Lady Bulldogs' plan of attack was to get the guests into foul trouble and, run them until their tongues were hanging down to the floor.
Rather than subject his team to the confines of the gym for practice on a sunny Sunday afternoon, Camden High basketball coach Ron McKie took his squad to the school's adjoining athletic complex to work out in the great outdoors.
