Panthers’ playoff run hits wall against Summerville

Marc Morris knew his team needed a near-perfect performance to beat Summerville in the second round of the 5A playoffs. The Panthers didn’t give one Friday. Summerville shut out Carolina Forest in the second half and the Panthers’ defense struggled to contain the Green Wave, which cruised to a 45-13 win. “Every team in the state’s disappointed unless you’re the state champion,” Morris... 

Panthers’ gamble pays off in OT win over Lexington

Marc Morris had already showed his hand. The Carolina Forest coach elected to go for it on fourth down four separate times during the second half of the team’s playoff game against Lexington. All four ended with his team giving the ball back to Wildcats. So with the season coming down to one play, the fifth-year coach had already cleared those from his head and decided to gamble again. Mason... 

Panthers prepare for tough first-round playoff test

In the last five years, Carolina Forest coach Marc Morris has found himself getting ready for Lexington on a regular basis. After inheriting two early regular-season games against the Wildcats from the previous coaching staff’s scheduling, Morris is now preparing for a second consecutive first-round home game against the Midlands squad that is three hours away by bus. Those four games against... 

Region 6-5A: Panthers run past Braves; Sharks falter

Carolina Forest kept its slim hopes at a Region VI-5A championship alive. At the very least, the Panthers can rest easy knowing their chances at the first home playoff game since moving to the state’s largest classification are even better. Courtesy of a 35-7 over last-place Socastee Thursday night to wrap up its regular season, coach Marc Morris’ team had only the least possible scenario standing... 

Carolina Forest knocks off Conway in defensive duel

Conway’s defense slowed down Carolina Forest Thursday night, but the Tigers couldn’t muster enough offense to match the Panthers. Carolina Forest (6-1, 3-1 region) defeated their rivals 20-7 in a game that featured a few big plays and lots of stout defense. For the Panthers, the victory was a morale boost after last week’s tough loss to West Florence. “The beauty of high school football... 

Panthers suffer first defeat in showdown with Knights

The Carolina Forest offense watched nearly helplessly as Ailym Ford did what he’s done to so many others in the past. The West Florence tailback put on a performance for the ages in the second half Friday night at Florence’s Memorial Stadium and led his Knights squad to not only a 51-44 victory, but also into the driver’s seat for the Region VI-5A championship and a shot at homefield advantage... 

Despite turnover, Panthers continue region dominance

Avery Campbell didn’t expect to celebrate a region championship this year. Heading into the season, the sophomore setter figured that with a new coach, just two seniors and a lineup still searching for chemistry, this Carolina Forest volleyball team would be laying the foundation to compete in future years. She’s happy to be wrong. “Very surprised,” Campbell said Thursday night after the... 

CF’s Hatfield, boys team claim Region 6-5A titles

All five Carolina Forest boys runners placed in the top 12 to win the Region 6-5A title on Tuesday, and Lady Panther Brianna Hatfield captured medalist honors among the girls on the Freedom Florence course. Carolina Forest’s Michael Mohr (17:24) and Jacob Dulson (17:29) finished fifth and sixth, respectively – just ahead of Conway’s Monroe Thompkins (17:42), who claimed the seventh... 

Legette’s comeback puts CF foes in a real ‘Catch 22’

David Legette knows his coaches could have moved on for good. They could have said he just wasn’t working out and utilized other options for 2018, and certainly not game-planned around him as much as they do. Instead, Carolina Forest head coach Marc Morris and offensive coordinator Shane Dular elected to go all in on their talented running back who spent most of last year hobbled by a seemingly... 

Golf: CF, SJ qualify in 5A; MB, NMB finish 2-3 in 4A
