Some of the faces may have changed, but the results remain the same for the Lugoff-Elgin wrestling team which kicked off its season with a sweep of York and host Rock Hill on Wednesday night.
Former Lugoff-Elgin standout, Grayson Quick, was named to the 2011 Mid-South All-Conference football team.
wo springs ago, Lugoff-Elgin baseball coach Randy Stokes decided to put then-sophomore Devin Walker behind the plate to handle a veteran group of hard-throwing pitchers, three of whom signed to pitch at the collegiate level including current USC closer Forrest Koumas.
Without hesitation, Scott Jones decided to go for the two-point conversion and the possible win after Lugoff-Elgin closed to within 20-19 with 66 seconds left to play in Friday's season finale against Sumter.
This, to put it mildly, has not been one of the most fun seasons to be a Lugoff-Elgin football player, coach or fan.
Like the crew of a moving company, the Lugoff-Elgin football coaches have been kept busy by shifting players from one position into another not just in practice, but on Friday nights, as well.
Halftime turned into work time for Lugoff-Elgin.
When and where will it all end?
Coming back home is supposed to feel better than this.
With four games left in the conference season and having started conference play with a loss to Carolina Forest last week, tonight would be as good a time as any for Lugoff-Elgin to see if it can find that magic which led them to the Region 6-4A title a season ago.
CONWAY -- Friday in Conway was no ordinary day at the beach for Lugoff-Elgin.

LEXINGTON -- Lugoff- Elgin could not stop the avalanche of mistakes and momentum created from one of the top teams in the state on Friday night as host Lexington defeated the Demons, 59-16, in the final non-region contest of the season for both squads.
It's hard to live in the Midlands region of the state and to not have heard something about the Lexington offense.
It was like going from the state fair to the county fair.
Dakota Jones was asked to step out of his comfort zone in Lugoff-Elgin's defensive scheme last fall.
Growing up, Brandon Bowers was told by his coaches that he was too small to be any good at sports.
