  • Davis to run with the Bears at Lenoir Rhyne

    Indian Land High School star sprinter Marlin Davis has a knack for making his points in a hurry.
    Davis, the Warriors’ defending Class AAA 200-meter state champion, however, didn’t get right to the point in announcing where he’s headed for college and his track future.
    Instead, Davis took time to thank God, his coaches and teammates, teachers and school support staff in helping him go to the next level.
