Sports Report for Tuesday, 10-1-2013

Local sports:

CHS: I have some “catching up” I need to do from late last week on CHS athletics

  •  Tennis: CHS 6 – Woodruff 1: Last Thursday the lady Red Devils defeated the Lady Wolverines of Woodruff in tennis action at Woodruff High by a score of 6-1… Mason Paige Gambrell, Gracie Waldron, Sela Vaughn, and Allison Oxner all took wins in singles action… Gambrell an Waldron teamed up to take a win as the #1 doubles team while the #2 doubles team composed of Elizabeth Jones and Rachel Lloyd also posted a win as the #2 doubles team… The Lady Red Devils are now 4-2 overall and 3-0 in region play.
  • Volleyball: also last Thursday the Lady Red Devil volleyball teams traveled to Woodruff… In JV action, the Lady Wolverines won 2-0 by scores of 25-21 and 25-13… In varsity action, the results were much the same as Woodruff won 3-0… Set scores were 25-20, 25-13 and 25-20…  Both the Red Devil tennis team and volleyball teams are scheduled to host Union today.  

LDHS: I also need to do some “catching up” on sports activity at LDHS

  • Girls Tennis: Laurens 6 – Woodmont 1… The Lady Raider Tennis team traveled to Woodmont last Thursday to take on the Lady Wildcats and the ride back was a good one because they posted a 6-1 win over the Wildcats… Moriah Campbell played her debut match in singles action and responded with a win… Brittany Horner, Kathleen Horner, Bailey Rush and Sara Kayln Crocker all also had win in singles action… Crocker and Brittany Horner also picked up a win in doubles action… For more match details, JV results and comments from Coach Corley, click on the following link: Lady Raider Tennis Results 2013 … The team will host Westside today at the Laurens City Courts.
  • Girls Golf: TL Hannah 378 – LDHS 432… Also last Thursday the Lady Raider golf team traveled to Cobbs Glenn CC in the Anderson area to take on TL Hannah… The Lady Yellow Jackets of Hannah took a 378-432 win over the Lady Raiders in an 18-hole match… Alexus Moore had the low score for the Raiders shooting a 97… Coach Jim Iacuone said his team continues to improve and one positive thing about the match is that the Region I-AAAA Tournament will be held there on Oct. 8th so the team had a chance to preview the course before then….

  • Caleb Sturgeon… Former LDHS golfer and current junior at the University of South Carolina Caleb Sturgeon is helping to lead the Gamecocks to an early lead in the Badger Invitational in Verona, Wis…. On Sunday he shot a 7-under 65 in the first round to lead his team to a 4 shot lead after the 1st round… Yesterday he shot an even-par 72 in windy conditions as the Gamecocks stretched their lead out to 18 stroke with the team shooting 565 through 2 rounds an 11 under par score… The final round will be today and want to wish Caleb and the Gamecocks good luck! 

Braves

  • MLB announced yesterday the starting times for the first two games in Braves and Dodgers best of five series… Game one in Atlanta on Thursday will start at 8:37 and game two also in Atlanta on Friday will start at 6:00… I believe both games will be on TBS.
