Sport Report for Friday, 11-15-2013

Local Sports:

CHS

  • Conway & Nichols Sign… Yesterday morning CHS had two senior athletes sign letters of intent to continue their education and continue their athletic careers at two in-state universities… Hunter Nichols signed with Furman University and continue to play golf for them… Meanwhile Okevius Conway signed with the University of South Carolina and will become a member of the Gamecock baseball team… Click on the following link to link to a posting where I have an interview with each of them:  Two CHS Athletes Sign Letters of Intent.
  •  Clinton at Daniel… Well the Red Devils put their 5-game winning streak on the line as they travel to Central tonight to take on the Daniel Lions… The Lions are undefeated on the season and averaging 42 points per game while their defense averages giving up 9 points per game… It will be quite a challenge for the Red Devils but I seem to recall that back in 2009 the road to the state championship went through Daniel and they were pretty heavily favored then… Seem to me Clinton took that game and went on to win the championship that year…. You know a large crowd would be a big help to the team so go on up and support the Red devils as they really deserve it after the way they have turned their season around.

 

LDHS:

  • Laurens at North Augusta… The Laurens Raiders will hit the road tonight for the 2-hour drive down to North Augusta to take on the Yellow Jackets in first round play in the Class-AAAA Division II playoffs… The Jackets are 10-1 on the season and averaging about 42 points per game while giving up an average of 13 points per game… The Raiders are coming off the disappointing overtime loss to Greenwood last Friday night but don’t count them out… There is a very real chance for them to “surprise” some folks before this is over… Would like to see a lot of you down there to help cheer them on and remember there will be a fan bus leaving LDHS at 5:15 and the cost is $7.00 for the ride plus you ticket cost when you get  there.. Call 982-9117 to reserve place on the bus… Space is limited… carry your FM radio and pick up the call of the game on our in-stadium transmitter on 89.9 or 97.3 whichever I find is better when I get there.
