IRMO -- Of all the games this season, Lugoff-Elgin fans may have actually seen this coming.
There is the line of thinking which goes along with a game like this; is says, when you have nothing to lose, there is no reason to leave anything in the bag.
Upon first glance, Alyssa Melton is not the most imposing young lady you will ever run into.
Lugoff-Elgin provided the scare on Halloween, but didn't deserve the treat.
Too little, too late. That's what it felt like for Demon fans at Lugoff-Elgin Stadium Friday night. On homecoming, Ridge View used a ground and pound attack in the second half to outlast the hosts in a tightly contested game, 24-16.
Homecoming is that Catch-22 for a head football coach. He must walk a fine line between allowing his players to enjoy the week-long festivities while also making sure their minds are on Friday night's game.
With the start of practice for the upcoming season only a few weeks away, members of the Lugoff-Elgin Middle School wrestling team are getting in some pre-season work by competing in pre-season tournaments.
COLUMBIA --- Spring Valley made a late surge in the first half and never looked back defeating visiting Lugoff-Elgin, 40-14, in a Region 4-4A game played Friday night at Harry Parone Stadium.

While those coaches in classes AAA, AA and A whose teams are having rough starts in the non-conference portion of their football schedules look to the conference campaign as a new beginning, for 4A entries, week seven is, well, week seven.
On a rainy Friday evening in the Midlands, visiting Lexington used a balanced offensive attack to outlast and win over the Lugoff-Elgin Demons, 27-13, on Military Appreciation Night in the West Wateree.
Quite possibly the best sight which Dave Thomas will not see tonight is a school bus parked outside the Lugoff-Elgin locker room gassed up and ready to take the team to a road game.
Usually, signing day allows a high school student-athlete time to look back and reflect on what led up to this special occasion.
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.
