With two of its wrestlers winning titles and six others placing in the top four, South Pointe High School captured this past weekend's 23rd annual Mid-Carolina Credit Union Holiday Classic Wrestling Tournament hosted by Lugoff-Elgin.
Lugoff-Elgin travels to Camden tonight for a 6 p.m. doubleheader in the first of two consecutive Friday night contests between the two rivals. North Central is also home tonight as the Knights and Lady Knights host McBee in a 6:30 p.m. start.
Like sending out the middle of your batting order to start a game, Lugoff-Elgin used an evening-opening power burst to jump to an 18-0 lead before fending off a challenge from visiting Camden to take a 45-24 victory in the first of two regular season wrestling matches between the cross-rival rivals on Tuesday.
It's game day at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, home of the National Football League's Carolina Panthers. In preparation to take the field, the necessary equipment --- uniforms, boots, eye liner and makeup --- is applied to their bodies.
University of South Carolina sophomore defensive specialist and former Lugoff-Elgin standout Megan Kirkland has been named to the 12-player 2014 SEC Volleyball Community Service Team, which the conference announced last Wednesday.
When given the option, Will Jones could have stayed for his senior year at Lugoff-Elgin High School and played out his final season of football for the Demons after his father, Scott Jones, retired as the school's head football coach and athletic director last July.
Led by a trio of 20-point scorers, the Lugoff-Elgin boys' basketball team kicked off the second season of the Garrett Knight era by knocking off visiting North Central, 90-42, on Tuesday night inside the Demons Den.
