Local sports:


  • Cross Country… Yesterday the CHS Cross Country team traveled to Chapman for a 4-way meet with Broome, Union and the host team Chapman… In boy’s action, the team finished 2nd behind Broome… However Red Devil Chris Patterson finished first with a time of 17:15… Most of the boys had their personal best times of the season… In girls action, finished 4th but not because of lack of effort as all the young ladies on the team had their personal best times… Hunter Benson finished 3rd with a time of 22:14…  Click on the following for complete match details: Clinton at Chapman CC 10-2-13     Clinton will host the region meet next Tuesday at 5:00 pm at the Old CHS.
  • Tennis: CHS 7 – Union 0…  Back on Tuesday the Lady Red Devil tennis tam hosted Union County and took a convincing 7-0 win… Mason Paige Gambrell, Gracie Waldron, Sela Vaughn, Sommer Lawton and Allison Oxner all claimed wins in singles action… Elizabeth Jones and Rachel Lloyd teamed up to take a win as the #2 doubles team while Gambrell and Waldron took the final win as the #1 doubles team… The team travels to Chapman today in further region action. 


  • Volleyball… Laurens 3 – Woodruff 2… Catching up on some volleyball at LDHS, back on Monday the Lady Raiders took a 3-2 win over the Lady Wolverines of Woodruff… Laurens took the first set 25-21 but Woodruff came back and took the second set 25-19… Woodruff then took the third set 25-20 but Laurens rebounded taking the fourth set 25-19… That set the stage for the fifth and deciding set which the Lady Raiders took 15-7… That made the team record 2-8 on the season. 


  • The Braves start their National League Division Series with the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight in Atlanta at 8:30…. I think it will be on TBS and don’t expect to see Dan Uggla in uniform for the Braves… He did not make the 25-man NLDS roster because of his offensive struggles late in the season.
