Kershaw County's chance to have an unprecedented three of its volleyball teams all playing their way into the South Carolina High School League state championship was erased when both North Central and Lugoff-Elgin lost their matches on Monday and Tuesday nights, respectively.
Camden's Devin Beckley, Jo Jo Watson, Lugoff-Elgin's Adam Rowson and North Central's Cedrick Cunningham were all selected to play in the North-South All-Star Football Game to be played on Saturday, Dec. 10 at Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium in Myrtle Beach.
Thanks to Hurricane Matthews and the cleanup thereafter, the South Carolina High School League's state playoffs for volleyball and girls' tennis will kick off this week, a week later than originally planned.
His right arm tucked in a sling due to a hand injury sustained in the opening minutes of North Central's 48-12 loss to Cheraw on Oct. 6, Cedrick Cunningham was hardly ready to play in tonight's game at Chesterfield.
Tuesday: Camden Military Academy at McAlpine Park Meet in Charlotte (XC – 4:30 p.m.); Home meet at North Central (XC – 5 p.m.); Camden at Indian Land (TEN – 5:30 p.m.); Lugoff-Elgin at Darlington (XC – 5:30 p.m.); Central at North Central (VB – 6:30 p.m.); Camden at Indian Land (VB – 7 p.m.); Lugoff-Elgin at Hartsville (VB – 7 p.m.)
For the second time in as many seasons, Mother Nature threw a wrench into the fall high school sports seasons in Kershaw County. Only this time, the South Carolina High School League stepped in to help level the playing field for those schools affected by the weather.
