Please go to the lower portion of this report to see all the sports camps remaining at PC this summer… There will be a basketball camp for young ladies ages 7-17 starting tomorrow.. Again please see details below.
- 7 on 7 Contests at CHS Today… This morning at 10 am there will be several teams at CHS for 7 on 7 passing contest… In addition to the Red Devils, the Laurens Raiders will be there… I’m sure both the local teams would love to see you out there if you get a chance to come.
- Clinton 11-12 All-Stars Winn Again… The Clinton 11-12 year-old Dixie Youth Ozone All-Stars continued to cruise through the District 3 Tournament in Abbeville last night as they ran their record to 4-0 win a 12-2 win over the Mid-Carolina All-Stars… The game was tied 2-2 going into the bottom of the second inning when Clinton put 3 runs on the board and never looked back adding 2 in the third and 5 in the 5th for the 10-run win… Clinton pounded out 11 hits while 2 Zach Fortman and Wil Stewart combined to allow Mid-Carolina just 2 hits… R.T. Corley led Clinton going 3-3 and driving in 2 runs while Jaylin Alexander went 2-2 with 3 RBIs… The team is undefeated in tournament play and will play again tonight and only has to win once to claim the championship while the opponent would have to beat them twice to claim the championship… Click on the following for the game’s box score: Mid-C_vs_Clinton_YMCA_O_Zone_Allstars_Jun_27_2016
- Laurens Little League Minors Win District Championship…The Laurens Little League 9-10 year old Minors All-Star team won the District 1 Championship up in Easley last Friday night with a 15-14 win over the Wren Blue team… They took the win in the bottom of the 6th inning on a 2-run, walk-off homer by Owen Pridgen… They now advance to play in the state tournament up in Taylors on July 7th… Congratulation to Coach Pridgen and the team!
- CWS: Arizona 3 – Coastal Carolina 0… In game 1 of the CWS finals last night out in Omaha, the Arizona Wildcats behind the pitching of JC Cloney took a 3-0 win over the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers… Cloney had the complete game shutout allowing only 4 hits while striking out 6 and walking 3… Arizona got their 3 runs on just 6 hits and played very solid defense… Coastal has runners on first and second with no outs in the bottom of the 9th inning when a great double play and a strikeout looking ended the threat and the game… Coastal must win tonight at 8 pm and force a game 3 if they want to bring back the big hardware to SC… For more information on this game, click here.
- Indians 8 – Braves 3… The Braves have enjoyed a measure of success as of late but last night’s game indicated they might be slipping back to early season form as they fell to the Cleveland Indians 8-3 in Atlanta last night… To be honest though, the Tribe is one of the hottest teams in MLB as this was their 10th consecutive win….

- Drive 6 – Charleston 1… The Greenville Drive started their 3-game series with the Charleston RiverDogs down on the coast last night on a positive note as they took a 6-1 win in Joe Riley Park… The Drive had only 7 hits to the RiverDogs 5 but they were aided by a couple of Charleston errors and 4 walks…For more information on this game, click here for the recap and click here for the box score.
