LIBERTY — One year removed from an Upper State championship appearance and facing the challenge of playing in a new region this fall, the Liberty High School volleyball team doesn’t appear to have lost a step in an unbeaten start to region play.

The Red Devils’ strong play was on full display last week as they dropped region foe Chesnee in straight sets.

“We’re new to this region this year, so we really haven’t known what to expect,” Liberty head coach

LIBERTY — The Pickens Blue Flame could not have asked for a more beautiful fall evening to play football.

After dropping its previous two contests against Southside and Daniel, Pickens looked to get back in the win column as it traveled to Liberty on Friday night to play the Red Devils. The Blue Flame were able to do just that with a dominant effort on both sides of the ball in a 42-7 road win.

Pickens’ captains for the contest were Jaden Jackson, Jeremy Burgess, Sammy Edwards and Eli Roberts. Liberty won the coin toss and elected

GREENVILLE — The Easley Green Wave checked off a lot of boxes Friday night against Southside.

  • Win a fourth consecutive game.
  • Pitch a shutout on defense.
  • Play a relatively clean game in winning the final non-region game, 42-0.

“I thought we played well,” Easley coach Jordan Durrah said. “I thought the kids showed a lot of focus. They showed a lot of attention to detail. I thought we executed on both sides of the ball and thought we performed well on special teams. Obviously it wasn’t perfect. There are still some things that we’ll learn from this game and try to clean up and fix before we get going in region play.”

Easley won the toss and elected to receive. The Green Wave drove 60 yards in nine plays, converting on fourth and one when Ethan Alexander picked up four. Four plays later, quarterback Kalab Sutton found Will Patton at the 8-yard line, and he put his shoulder down and ran over defenders en route to a 17-yard score. Alexander’s kick

CENTRAL — In its final test before opening region play, the Daniel High School football team hosted Riverside on Friday night, and in a reversal of their previous two games, the Lions couldn’t manage to pull away over the first 20 minutes of action.

However, the Lions found their groove behind a career day on the ground from senior quarterback Blaine Simons and the rest of the Daniel offense, along with an impressive showing from senior Misun “Tink” Kelley, in a dominant 56-14 win.

“We talked a good bit this week about getting everyone’s best effort and what that means as far as how we’re going to approach the game,” Daniel head coach Jeff Fruster said. “I know we’re still intrinsically

PICKENS — A large crowd gathered on Tuesday morning in front of the Pickens office of Buddy Cox to honor the man known throughout the Upstate as “Country Santa.”

Unbeknownst to Cox, the group was there to thank the humble Pumpkintown resident for the many years of work he has done in bringing smiles to children in the area during Christmastime and to see him receive South Carolina’s highest civilian honor, the Order of the Palmetto.

State House Rep. Davey Hiott and Sen. Rex Rice presented Cox with the distinguished award. Hiott told the crowd that local resident Ronnie Lackey had approached him last January asking
