    Making the transition from tailback to quarterback has not been that difficult for Caleb Hinzman.
    His older brother, Noah, made the same transition.
    Both can run. But when the necessity is there to pass the football, they do that as well.

    This is going to be a special season for Lakelands fall college sports programs.
    At 5:30 Sept. 22, the 550-seat soccer facility at the Jeff May Complex will be named “Van Taylor Stadium,” for the coach who is leading the Lander men’s soccer program for the 30th year.
    During that time, Taylor’s Lander program has won almost 70 percent of its matches. Last season, the Bearcats were a top regional seed and reached the NCAA Division II Sweet 16. Taylor, who actually was a star goalkeeper at Erskine, is the reigning region coach of the year.

    Lake Jocassee
    Largemouth and Spotted Bass: Slow to fair. Guide Brad Fowler reports that bass fishing has slowed on Lake Jocasse as water temperatures have warmed, although the general pattern remains pretty similar. Early in the morning fish are chasing bait pretty well around shallow, flat points, and throwing topwater lures around shallow water has been producing. During the day fishing turns into a slower grind where fish can be found in 20-30 feet of water off the ends of places where they were schooling earlier. Shakey head worms, drop shot rigs and Carolina rigs can all catch bass.

    The game saw a number of players from both schools suffer injuries and cramps. The most gruesome injury occurred late in the first quarter when Saluda’s sophomore running back Malik Brooks sustained a likely compound fracture to one of his forearms.

    IVA — The Crescent Tigers, coming off a late-game 21-14 loss against Liberty last week, bounced back in a big way by trouncing the Dixie Hornets 35-6 Friday.

  • Christ Church outlasts Abbeville
    Saturday, August 30, 2014 1:44 AM
    GREENVILLE -- With the state’s record for consecutive wins in a row on the line, Christ Church nearly blew Abbeville High School’s football team off the field in the first half. Cavaliers’ quarterback Andrew Slade threw four touchdowns, and Christ Church led 28-7 at the break and were two quarters from a blowout win to set the record at 42 wins in a row Friday. 

    Saturday, August 30, 2014 1:34 AM
    NINETY SIX -- There were about eight minutes left in the third quarter, and Ninety Six was trying to comeback. Down to Emerald 24-7, the Wildcats attempted a hand off to Rod Johnson.  
    The ball was fumbled and Johnson recovered.

    History could be made tonight at the expense of the Abbeville Panthers.
    Abbeville travels to Christ Church tonight to play the Cavaliers, who are three-time defending Class A state champions. They are also riding a 41-game winning streak that ties the state record for consecutive wins, a record set by Summerville from 1978-80. With the win, Christ Church sets the record.
    Obviously, Abbeville has no desire to be the team that gives Christ Church the record. Panthers coach Jamie Nickles downplayed the streak and said he would not even bring it up, which is what a coach should say. In the grand scheme of things, this game does not mean a whole lot. Abbeville could lose tonight and be on the wrong side of history, but then rebound to win the Class AA Division II state championship. No one will remember losing to Christ Church then.
