Sharks sink their teeth into inside track for region title

The first batter of the game not only reached base against St. James. Moments later, after a wild pitch, sacrifice bunt and fly ball, South Florence’s Korique Rainey scored. He was the last Bruin to do so, and he was also the last one to reach third base. St. James not only came from behind in another region game on Monday; the Sharks put it on their closest competition with a 9-1 victory that...

All-County Golf: Anderson follows Knaffle’s footsteps

Selecting the MyHorryNews All-County Girls Golfer of the Year should be easy when there’s a three-time team state champion, two-time individual state medalist and 2017 S.C. Golfer of the Year in the mix. But what if she was the second-best player on her team in 2018? That’s why it only seemed right to award St. James High freshman Adrian Anderson with the title over senior teammate and University...

Knaffle drives into bright future at South Carolina

St. James High’s Smith Knaffle has had plenty of time to get used to the idea of playing golf at the University of South Carolina after committing to the Gamecocks last year.

Knights knock off Sharks following monthlong wait

The last time Tommy Norwood spoke after one of his team’s games, he mentioned that St. James had made dramatic improvement from the previous contest. On Monday, Norwood struggled to do it again. In their first game in 31 days after Hurricane Florence and the aftereffects of mass flooding in the area, the Sharks were dismantled in their return, falling 55-21 to West Florence. As it turned out,...
