So, I get a slew of press releases in my email box all the time. Most of them are trying to sell something. Many of them are from the state government announcing new businesses and jobs across the state.
By now you should be deep in the throes of the Christmas shopping season. I hope you remembered to “shop small” and supported some of our locally-owned businesses. You can find things that are special and unique and will be sure to delight the recipient.
Clarendon Hall advanced to the semi-final round of the SCISA 1-A state playoffs with a thrilling win over Cathedral Academy, 36-30, Friday night. The Generals took control early, scoring on four of their five first half possessions behind the running and passing of QB Christian Rogers. Rogers, for the season, came in averaging over 200 yards per game passing and almost 200 rushing.
Clarendon Hall lost to Carolina Academy by the score of 38-6, Friday night in Summerton. This was the final regular season game for both teams with Carolina needing a win to make the playoffs. Clarendon Hall, having already locked up the #2 seed in their region, just did not play well. Turnovers and penalties hurt the Saints on offense, but it was the Bobcat running game that was the key to the win for Carolina. The Saints could not get a stop in the first half.
The Clarendon Hall JV football team wrapped up their season on Thursday night with a dominating 46-0 shutout victory over the Andrew Jackson Confederates. The Saints end the season with an impressive 8-1 record.
