Once the Lugoff-Elgin softball team arrived in Summerville for Monday's 4A Distict 8 softball game with the host Green Wave, the Lady Demons were forced to do a U-turn and return home as late afternoon rains in the Lowcountry made the field unplayable for the third round elimination game.
In a pairing which had all the earmarks of a classic last game of the season in which one team is priming for the playoffs and the other is playing out the string, Lugoff-Elgin pounded visiting Irmo, 13-0, on Senior Night at Optimist Field on Monday.

That strong breeze which you may have felt coming from the northeast area of Richland County on Tuesday night may well have been as the result of a collective exhale from the Lugoff-Elgin baseball team.
Cementing its spot for a second straight trip to the state 4A tennis playoffs, Lugoff-Elgin used a 5-1 win over visiting Blythewood on Thursday to put the Demons firmly in third place in the Region 4-4A standings with two conference matches left on the schedule.
