  • Nothing but proud: Darlings fall just short in Dixie World Series
    SUMTER – Lancaster’s Darlings all-stars, undefeated going into the last day of the Dixie Softball World Series, slammed into a Louisiana juggernaut twice Aug. 2, losing both games decisively and ending their championship quest one step short of the title. The team from Jena, La., which Lancaster’s 7- and 8-year-olds had beaten in a dramatic comeback July 30, steamrolled to the victory with 11-3 and 16-5 wins. Eleven teams competed in the double-elimination tournament at Sumter’s Patriot Park Recreation Complex.

  • Darlings off to great start!
    The Lancaster County Darlings stars, age 8U, are off to a dandy start in the Dixie Softball World Series at Patriot Park in Sumter. The 2017 S.C. state champions opened the double-elimination tournament with three straight wins, including a 13-11 victory over Montgomery, Ala., on Sunday, July 30. The Darlings, 14-0 in postseason play, bolted to a 9-3 lead on the Alabama state champion, but the Bama team rallied to take a 10-9 edge. Lancaster County rebounded to with four runs in the fourth inning to take a 13-10 lead.
  • Summers column: Darlings give us reason to smile
    It was one of those frozen-in-time, “you had to be there” moments to truly appreciate. As soon as I stepped out of my pick-up in the senior parking lot at Buford High School on Thursday, July 27, I heard a round of involuntary laughter that got my immediate attention. The snickering was followed by a water balloon barrage that splattered on Gene Knight’s back. Knight, the Lancaster County Parks and Recreation Dixie Softball Darlings All-Stars coach, immediately convulsed into one of those drawn-up contortions that such actions cause.
