Lee Academy vs. North Central); North Central girls in final round of Comporium Classic at Andrew Jackson (opponent, time TBA); Camden High girls in final round of Lake Marion Invitational Tournament (opponent, time TBA); Camden boys in first round of Farm Bureau Classic Tournament at Chesterfield High School (opponent, time TBA); Lugoff-Elgin girls in Lady Winds Invitational at Timmonsville High School (7:30 p.m. vs. Timmonsville)
This would be the perfect time for Von Duncan to pull out the "woe is me" card. Instead, the Lugoff-Elgin girls' basketball coach puts on a stoic face and stares down adversity the only way she know how.
Wanting to conserve some energy in a breakneck-paced scheme, Camden High interim head basketball coach Ron McKie Jr. went to a zone defense Friday night, as opposed to the constant man-to-man pressure which the first-year Bulldog boss favors.
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.
