Evan Moxie is hoping that his Lugoff-Elgin wrestling team has a long memory.
It all boils down to one game.
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.

As if this pre-season has not been a rush job already for interim Lugoff-Elgin head football coach Dave Thomas, he had one week less than normal to work with in preparing the Demons for tonight's Week Zero game with Camden in the Mid-Carolina Credit Union Kickoff Classic.
When he left Camden High School following his graduation in 2009 to continue his academic and basketball pursuits, Evrik Gary needed only to hop on I-20 East and head for Florence and Francis Marion University. Among the reasons he chose to attend FMU was the school's proximity to his home and family in Camden.
For almost as long as North Central fans can remember, schools such as Andrew Jackson, Indian Land, Buford and Chesterfield have been the region rivals of the Knights' athletic teams.
