Local Notes:

CHS: The Lady Red Devil softball team finally got their season started this weekend as they were able to get a modified version of their Lady Red Devil Invitational Softball Tournament in on Saturday after a week’s delay… Checking on how the Red Devils did:

  • Clinton 15 – Whitmire 0… In their first game on Saturday morning, the Red Devils started their season off with a bang as they defeated Whitmire 15-0… The Red Devils scored in each of the 4 inning they batted with the big inning being the 3rd when they put 6 runs on the board… The Red Devils pounded out 17 hits with Maddison Burton and Maddi Wood both going 3 for 4… Hunter Benson had a good game at the plate as she had a pair of doubles and drove in 6 runs… Kamryn Akins picked up the complete game win giving up one hit while striking out 5 and walking none… For the game’s box score and some stats, click on the following: 3-2-19-CSb-Newberry-2 3-2-19-CSb-Whitmire-1
  • Clinton 11 – Newberry 11… In their second game Saturday, the Red Devils took on region foe Newberry…. Again there is good news for Red Devil fans as they defeated the Bulldogs 11-0… The game only went 4 innings and again the Red Devils scored in every inning plating 5 of their runs in the 4th inning… The Red Devil bates produced 14 hits with Hunter Benson going 4-4 with 3 doubles driving in 4 runs… Kate Marshal picked up the complete game win giving up 4 hits while striking out 3 and walking 2… For the game’s box score and some stats, click on the following: 3-2-19-CSb-Newberry-2
  • Clinton 16 – Whitmire 3… Now in the last game of the day the two teams with the best record from the day’s previous games got together in a championship game… That game saw the Red Devils face off against the Whitmire Wolverines for the second time… Again the Red Devils were victorious as they defeated the Wolverines this time by a score of 16-3… Now I am sorry but I don’t have any other details on the game.
  • Softball Host Ware Shoals Today… The team will be back in action today as they host the Ware Sholas Hornets at 7:30.

 

 

Laurens Academy: This past weekend five different Crusader basketball players had the opportunity to play in SCISA All-Star games held at Wilson Hall Academy in Columbia on Saturday.

  • Boys North-South All-Star Game: South 81 – North 61… Dawson Foster represented the Crusaders and while he did not score he did have 2 assists and 2 steals.
  • Girls North-South All-Star Game: North 58 – South 39… In this game the Crusaders were represented by Blair Quarles who scored 7 points and Jenifer Wu who scored 4 points for the victorious north team… A side note on this game, Blair Quarles almost caused her parents to have a heart attack as one of her made shots was from behind the three-point line… Wonder if they had an AED device handy?
  • Boys SCISA –GISA A-2A Game… SCISA 108 – GISA 104… In this defensive struggle (LOL) the South Carolina team took a 108-104 win over the team from Georgia… Noah Moore was the Crusader representative in this game and he scored 6 points.
  • Girls SCISA –GISA A-2A Game… SCISA 69 – GISA 65… Now there was a little more defense in the girls’ game but the South Carolina team still prevailed by a score of 69-65… Crusader senior Ruthie Moore had 6 points in the game… Congratulations to all the Crusaders who were invited to participate on a job well done!
