Real Radio 860 WLBG Sports Report: 10-31-12

In Local sports:

  • The CHS Girls Tennis Team took a hard fought victory yesterday as they defeated the Bears of BHP up at BHP yesterday.. I do not have all the details at this time and will try to have them for you on tomorrow morning’s sports report.. I do believe that the Lady Red Devils will be hosting the Upper State Finals this Thursday.. I’ll confirm all of that for you tomorrow.
  • Now let’s catch up with the CHS Cross Country Teams.. Last Saturday they participated in the Upper State AAA meet at Hillcrest High up in Simpsonville.. The boy’s team finished 5th just 3 points out of 3rd place overall and qualified for the AAA Cross Country Meet in Columbia.. Chris Patterson had the best time for the Red Devils turning in a time of 17:11.. Clinton had 6 other runners with times less than 20 minutes.. The girl’s team also competed but did not qualify for the state meet this Saturday.. Mikayla Gregory had the best time for the girls completing the course in 23:57.. Click on the following links for complete match results for both the boys and girls.. Boys:  Class AAA Upper State Boys           Girls: Class AAA Upper State Girls 

64th South Carolina Automobile Dealers Association North South All-Star Football Game:

  • The Rosters for this game were announced yesterday and none of the Red Devils or Raiders were on the roster for the North Team.. The only school which has part of the district in Laurens County to have a representative on the North squad is Ware Shoals.. Wesley Jordan made the team as a defensive back.. There were 2 from greenwood, 1 from Union County and 1 from Woodruff.. Not saying that any of these young men are not deserving but I thought maybe names like Lavardick Glenn, Roderick Talley or Desmond Beasley Jones would be on there also.. I feel sure they were nominated.. I guess it’s hard for Clinton and Laurens to get any respect outside the county.
