THE NEWS!


      County teams wrap up
     regular season tonight


Posted 10.31.14       
Hampton- The Wade Hampton Red Devils will wind up their regular season tonight as they travel to Woodland High School for a 7:30pm matchup against the Wolverines. 
     Last week the Red Devils defeated Edisto 24-27 to lock up at least a fourth place finish in region 5AA earning them a Class AA playoff spot. Going into tonight’s game the Devils are 4-5 overall and 2-2 in region play. A win tonight for Wade Hampton would mean a bump up to a tie for third-place in the region with Woodland. The Devils hold the tiebreaker over the Wolverines. With the changes in this year’s Class AA playoff format that would pit the Red Devils against a 2nd place team from another region instead of a region champion.
    Estill is on the road in a big game as well as they take on the Allendale-Fairfax Tigers for the Class 5A region title in Allendale tonight at 7:30.
    The 9th-ranked Gators are 8-1 on the year and 3-1 in region action, while A-F heads into the matchup at 9-0, with a 4-0 region record. Allendale-Fairfax is ranked #2 in Class A. An A-F win means an outright region title for the Tigers. A win by the Gators means no less than a 2nd place region finish.
     Patrick Henry will wrap up their regular season at Cone Field with a non-region game against rival Jefferson Davis at 7:30pm. The Patriots are 9-1 on the year and 8-0 in region play with the 1st round of the SCISA 8-man state playoffs awaiting them next week. The Pats opponent has yet to be determined.
     All playoff games should be announced by Sunday by the S. C. High School League. The info on local teams will be passed on as soon as it is available.

    Red Guardsmen enjoy
     successful season

Posted 10.30.14    
Varnville- Beginning in the middle of summer, the Wade Hampton Red Guardsmen Marching Band has been working their hardest to have a successful season.  They participated in four competitions, including the 2A State Finals.
    The Red Guardsmen went to the Walterboro Band Classic to kick off their season.  They competed against three other schools, but didn’t score high enough to bring home any trophies.  Determined to raise their scores, the band worked to improve their show over the following two weeks.
    Their next competition was the Garden City Classic in Orangeburg.  The hard work of the previous weeks paid off, as they came home with five trophies.  Enjoying their success, the band continued to push to make the show the best that it could be.
     At the Lower State competition in West Ashley, the Red Guardsmen were greatly hoping they would be able to score in the top ten and advance to the 2A State Finals.  Sure enough, their performance was good enough to earn them tenth place.  The band was ecstatic that they would get to go to State, something they hadn’t been able to do in two years.
    Eighteen bands came to Spring Valley High School in Columbia to compete in the 2A State Finals: 10 from Lower State and 8 from Upper State.  Wade Hampton was up first and they put everything they could into their final performance.  Sadly, however, they walked away with an 18th place finish.
    Even though they didn’t finish as high as they had hoped they would, the band was still excited that they were able to compete in the State Finals.  Next year, they will work even more in hopes of going back.

      Devil boys win region 
   girls finish 2nd; both
    head to Lower State


Posted 10.28.14                 
Cordova, SC— The Wade Hampton Red Devil Cross Country teams enjoyed a successful day at the region championships held at Edisto High School on Wednesday, October 22, winning one team championship, one team runner-up, two individual championships and placing 7 runners on the All Region 5AA teams.
    
The girls team placed 2nd to Woodland and defeated Barnwell and Edisto to finish the regular season at 27-1. Mackenzie Johnson, an 8th grader from North District Middle School, won the individual championship. 7th graders Gracie Rhodes and Caroline Altman also finished in the top 7, placing them on the All-region team. “The girls ran their hearts out and left everything on the course and that is all you can ask of any athlete” said coach Bert Burch. “Woodland had a team of veterans and were able to squeak out a two point win but they had to earn it. We had one of our girls who ran for us then had to race back to Hampton to compete in the volleyball playoffs”. Burch likes the future of the girls team. The team is losing only 4 seniors and the bulk of the team is still in the underclassman ranks. “We had a lot of girls run this year who were new to cross country but made big contributions and they combined with our veterans-Emily Wilson and Christy Rooker-to give us a real competitive squad”
    
The Wade Hampton boys team won their 2nd consecutive championship by beating Woodland, Barnwell, Edisto, and Hardee-Ridgeville to go to 41-0 on the year. The Devils were once again led by All-State runner Anthony Wells who ran a season best time of 17:01. Wells won the individual championship for the 2nd year in a row. Also making the All-Region team for the 2nd straight year were Trevor and Scott Wilson and Trent Terry. Burch is also excited about the future of the men’s team. “We only lose one senior  from this year’s squad and we added Bryson Edwards and Parker Rentz who, along with Andrew Purdy, consistently broke 19 minutes. Jacob Cope has also broken his personal best this year. We go in to state meets with all 8 runners running sub 20 minute times”
    
Coach Burch once again gives the credit to Donna Callis for the success this year.” Donna has been with me for 11 years now and I have never seen her coach with as much fire as I have this year. After her two sons graduated she could have hung it up but she has stayed on and I am forever grateful. She ran practice at 6:00 am as well as the regular afternoon practices. She also stayed late to practice people who were on other teams who couldn’t make it to regular practice. All of this and she has never been paid a dime for doing this” Burch also would like to thank Lake Warren State Park for hosting the two home meets this year as well as all of the parents who helped set up the course, cooked meals and followed the team everywhere. “We have great support for our parents and it really encourages our runners to see and hear that cheering section at each race. Thanks also to all of the monitors  and especially to my wife Deborah for always taking the time to come and keep score. She and Kaye Wilson do a hard job very well”
    
Next up for the teams will be the Lower State qualifying meet on November 1. 


    Wild Turkey reproduction
    increases last summer


Posted 10.27.14     
Columbia- Annually since the early 1980's, the S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) conducts a Summer Turkey Survey to estimate reproduction and recruitment of turkeys in South Carolina. The survey involves agency wildlife biologists, technicians and conservation officers, as well as many volunteers from other natural resource agencies and the general public. Although reproduction increased over last year it remained lower than desirable.
     Although wild turkeys nest primarily in April and May in South Carolina, the survey does not take place until late summer, according to Charles Ruth, DNR Deer and Wild Turkey Program coordinator. Therefore, the survey statistics document poults (young turkeys) that actually survived and entered the fall population.
     "Reproduction in turkeys has generally been poor for the last decade," said Ruth. "This year, average brood size of 3.9 poults remained relatively consistent and the total recruitment ratio of 1.6 was actually up about 23 percent from 2013. However, 2013 was the lowest recruitment ratio since the survey began in 1982, therefore, a modest increase is still below what is considered good. Recruitment ratio is a measure of young entering the population based on the number of hens in the population. This figure was driven by a high percentage of hens (59%) that had no poults at all by late summer. At the regional level it appears that with the exception of the lower coastal plain, reproduction was poor in most of the state."
     For more information on the 2014 Summer Turkey Survey, see the following link on the DNR website:
http://dnr.sc.gov/wildlife/turkey/2014BroodSurvey.html
     Unlike deer, wild turkeys are much more susceptible to significant fluctuations in reproduction and recruitment. Lack of reproductive success is often associated with bad weather (cold and wet) during nesting and brood rearing season. However, there are a host of predators that take advantage of turkey nests and broods including; raccoons, opossums, snakes, foxes, bobcats, and numerous avian predators. Coyotes which are not native, but are now well established in the state, can be added to the list of turkey predators. Turkeys naturally have high reproductive potential and are therefore able to maintain populations in spite of predation and other mortality factors. The problem is that we have not been getting much "bounce back" amid years of poor survival.
     What does poor reproduction in 2014 mean for the spring turkey hunter? Ruth indicated, "Spring harvest trends have followed trends in reproduction for many years. As was expected, with poor reproduction in 2012 and 2013 the spring harvest in 2014 was down significantly. The percentage of jakes (juvenile males) harvested in 2014 was the lowest on record supporting the record low reproductive data from last year. The record low reproduction in 2013 will not be felt until the 2015 spring season because 2 year old gobblers in 2015 would have been hatched in 2013 and that simply did not happen in most parts of the state. Also, the gobbler to hen ratio during this summer's survey was 0.60 which is the lowest since the year 2000," said Ruth. "Low gobbler to hen ratios can affect the quality of hunting because hens are extremely available which affects gobbling and responsiveness to calling by hunters."
     "The bottom line," Ruth said, "is the state's turkey population is about 35 percent below record levels of 12 years ago. We need better reproduction for several years to get the population back up. That is the nice thing about turkeys though; given the right conditions they can naturally bounce back in a short period of time."
     Anyone interested in participating in the annual Summer Turkey Survey is encouraged to sign-up. The survey period is July 1-August 29 annually and those who participate typically spend a reasonable amount of time outdoors during that time period. Cooperators obviously must be able to identify wild turkeys and must be comfortable in telling the difference between hens, poults, and gobblers. If you would like to participate in the survey, send your name and address to Summer Turkey Survey, P.O. Box 167, Columbia, SC 29202. You will be added to the cooperator list and receive materials at the end of June annually. Those interested in the survey can also download instructions and survey forms at the following website:

 Wade Hampton win 
 + Silver Bluff loss =
   playoffs for Devils
      All three county teams capture big wins !
Posted 10.25.14                                                   Story by Chris Haulsee
Varnville— At Devil Hill last night the Wade Hampton Red Devils scored late and managed to stop a persistent winless Edisto team for a 34-27 win  wrapping up a spot in this year’s Class AA state playoffs.
     Things were looking good for the Devils as they opened the game with a kickoff return to the Edisto 35-yard line. Unfortunately the Devils only managed 14 yards on their first drive before George Skinner was called on for a 38 yard field goal which was missed. Edisto then took over and quickly drove down to the Wade Hampton three. That’s where the Devils dug in, setting up the Cougars for a 21-yard field goal which was missed. 
    On the next Devil possession, Wade Hampton got on track and seven plays and 80 yards later scored the first points of the night when running back Trayvon Williams found the end zone on a 22-yard run to make it 7-0 after the Skinner point after. Edisto immediately tied the game on their next turn scoring in just five plays on an 80-yard drive with quarterback David Seawright toting it the last 11 yards with 31.8 seconds left in the opening stanza. Wade Hampton took over again, this time at their own 47 and moved the ball down the field before stalling out after 10 plays. Skinner was called on again for a 47-yard 3-pointer. The attempt was missed and Edisto took over at their own 20. The Cougars were able to move the ball again as they mixed it up with the run and pass moving the ball to the Devil 40 yard line before Seawright was able to connect with Justin Tyler for his first of three TD passes on the night. The point-after was blocked and Edisto took the lead at 13-7 with 4:33 left in the half.
    The Devils couldn’t move the ball on their next drive and were forced to punt after a 3-and-out. Edisto took over again and it looked as though the Devils might go into the half trailing before defensive back Dazzlin Thompson stepped in front of a Seawright pass for the interception. Taking over at their own 31-yard line it looked like the Devils would have another chance to tie the game before halftime. On the first play of the drive the Devils managed to turn the ball back over to the Cougars on a Bryson Butts interception. With Edisto having the ball at the Wade Hampton 40 it again didn’t look good for the Devils until two plays later when Thompson again picked off a Seawright pass at the Wade Hampton 40. The third time was the charm for the Devils when with 2:09 left in the half, they drove the ball down the field in six plays capping it off with an Israel Aiken 24-yard touchdown run. Skinner was good again and the home team led 14-13 with 33 seconds left in the half. The touchdown turned out to be the fourth time this season that Wade Hampton would score on the final drive of a half.
     The second half opened with Edisto taking the ball, but it wouldn’t be for long as Bryson Butts recovered a Cougar fumble on the second play of the drive. The down side for the Devils was that it was another missed opportunity as they only managed three plays and minus three yards before Skinner came on and missed his third field goal attempt of the night. 
     Things would soon get exciting after Edisto couldn’t capitalize on their next drive and were forced to punt after just three plays. Back deep for the Devils, Bryson Butts took the ball and headed through the Edisto wall of tacklers. Finding a seam, Butts turned on the afterburners and returned the ball 60 yards for another Red Devil score. After the two-point conversion miss Wade Hampton led 20-13.
     On the Devils next possession, following a Cougar four-play drive, Wade Hampton moved the ball fifty-seven yards in eight plays with Aiken taking it in from two yards out to make it 27-13 after the Skinner extra-point.
     Down by two touchdowns and winless on the season, this was where most teams would give up but that wasn’t about to be the case for Edisto. On their next possession the Cougars moved the ball sixty-five yards in seven plays to get within one score with 12:00 left. The Devils could do nothing with the ball on their next try and punted after a 3-and-out. The Cougars took over and thirteen plays later they were in the end zone again after another Justin Tyler TD catch. The score was tied at 27-27 and the Devils were reeling.
     Just when it looked like the Devils would snatch defeat from the jaws of victory they hitched up their pants, fastened their chin straps, and decided this was one they were not going to lose.
     With 5:22 remaining and the score tied, the Red Devils started on their own 31-yard line determined that the night and a possible playoff spot was there for the taking. Although it looked like the Devils would try to grind it out on the ground while running some clock, it didn’t take long for them to find the goal line. On the fourth play of the drive, Bryson Butts ran the ball up the middle for what looked like a gain of just a few yards. As he hit the second line of defenders a hole opened up and he was off to the races taking the ball fifty-seven yards for the final points of the night. Skinner was again good on the PAT and the score was 34-27 with 3:03 left. 
     If there was ever a time to use the term “we scored to quick,” this may have been the night for it as the Cougars were going to get at least one more chance with their high-powered passing game. Fortunately for the Devils, the Cougars would never get the chance. On the seventh play of the drive, after gaining only 17 yards, Seawright finally made the fatal mistake for the Cougars as he fumbled the ball after dropping back to pass. Israel Aiken fell on the ball at the Edisto 22-yard line and the Devils were able to take-a-knee for the last minute of the game sealing the win.
     “Tonight was a good, hard-fought game for both teams,” said coach David Poinsett following the game. “Edisto is not a 0-9 team. They are better than that. We came into this game knowing we could win if we could execute and we did that for the most part. We had some missed opportunities but we were able to overcome it due these kids believing in what we are trying to do at Wade Hampton.”
     Wade Hampton is now 4-5 on the year and 2-2 in region 5AA. The Wade Hampton win combined with Silver Bluff’s loss to Woodland lands the Devils a spot in the AA state playoffs that will begin in two week. Next week’s road game against Woodland will determine the final seeding for playoff action. Kickoff next Friday night is set for 7:30pm.

      Estill wraps of Class A playoff slot
                                                                               Story by Chris Haulsee
Denmark, SC- Friday night the Estill Gators took on the hapless 0-8 Denmark-Olar Vikings and came away with a close 30-22 win on the road.  The Gators secured a spot in the Class A state playoffs as they moved to 8-1 on the year and 3-1 in region 5A. Estill will wrap up their season next week against Allendale-Fairfax assured that they can finish no worse than 3rd in the region. An Estill win, along with a Bamberg-Ehrhardt loss could find the Gators atop the region as 5A champs, but with Denmark-Olar as B-E’s final regular season opponents next week, the odds are slim. Kickoff for next week’s game is scheduled for 7:30pm in Allendale.
     Patriots escape St. John's; continue streak
                                                                                  Story by Greg Jones
Moncks Corner, SC-  After wrapping up at least a tie for the region championship last Friday, Mike McCoy’s Patriots were going to be faced with a challenge this week. They had to travel to Moncks Corner to face St. John’s Christian Academy in a game that was immensely more important to the Cavaliers than it was to the Patriots. “St. John’s has a lot more to play for this week,” McCoy said before the game. “They’ve got to manage a win in the next two weeks to get in the playoffs. We’re in, just trying to go undefeated in the region."
      The Patriots looked like they would get their business down early on. After stopping the Cavaliers on their first drive, PHA took 6 plays to drive 50 yards, and put up their first score on Will Tuten’s 6 yard TD run. A Mitchell Hanna interception stopped the next St. John’s drive. Seven plays later, Blair Moore threw to Drayton Carson to give the Patriots a 12 point lead. The Cavaliers managed to thwart both of PHA’s two point conversions, despite the Patriots 71% season success rate on two-pointers. This should have been the sign that PHA’s night was to be difficult.
      After both teams had an unsuccessful drive, St. John’s next drive, which started on their own 27 yard line, was a brief one. A 73 yard pass and run from QB Dustin Parsons to Josh Carter, and the conversion, brought the Cavalier’s to within 4 points, 12-8. The Patriots answered immediately with an eleven play drive capped by a Gill Griner run. The successful conversion gave PHA the 20-8 lead. St. John’s managed another long TD pass, but fortunately for the Patriots, after a great deal of conversation among the referees, it was disallowed. The Patriots missed a golden opportunity to take a commanding halftime lead after a late interception throw left PHA with only a 20-8 halftime lead.
      The Patriots took the second half kickoff, and despite holding the ball for eleven plays, were unable to score. St.John’s took very little time, and only five plays, to score a TD to bring them within six points. The two failed conversions in the first quarter left the Patriots in the type of precarious position that they had not experienced since week two at Clarendon Hall. Fortunately for McCoy’s team, they were able to fend off St. John’s. PHA managed to control the ball for the last six minutes of the game to hold on for a 20-14 win. “St. John’s really came out and challenged us tonight. They used several big defensive plays to stymie our offense,” said coach McCoy. “We were also forced to use several different running backs. A few runs late by Mitchell Hanna, and a big catch by Drayton Carson allowed us to not give St. John’s a last chance at us. We’re probably lucky to get out of here with a win.”
      Patriot quarterback Blair Moore was the team rushing leader with 28 rushes for 116 very hard-earned yards. Will Tuten was held to only 48 yards and a score, while Mitchell Hanna rushed for 49 yards. Seven different backs carried the ball on the evening. Drayton Carson’s night included three catches and a touchdown, while Brandon Prince had two catches and a two point conversion.
     
Patrick Henry’s defense managed to stop the Cavalier’s offense on all but two of eight drives. Senior Hunter Taylor led the team with seven tackles, three of which were for loss. Brandon Prince had five tackles, three behind the line. Bryson Stanfield also recorded a sack, his team leading ninth. Two passes broken up by Kelly Pittinger and an interception by Hanna helped to hold the defensive backfield together against the Cavalier passing attack.
     Patrick Henry moves to 9-1, completing an undefeated region season at 8-0. St. John’s falls to 4-5, 4-3 in the region, and must defeat Ridge Christian next week to assure themselves a playoff spot. 
      The Patriots will host Jefferson Davis next Friday at Cone Field as they celebrate Senior Night. There will also be a Halloween costume parade and trick or treating for the kids at halftime. Children are encouraged to dress in costume, and parents are asked to bring treats to give out to all the kids during the halftime festivities. Kickoff is at 7:30.
