  • Loughry makes most of his return

    Indian Land High School senior quarterback David Loughry defied the odds this season.
    Loughry, a three-year starter for the Warriors, wasn’t a lock to be back under center for 2017.
    Loughry suffered a tough injury last season, breaking his femur, the longest and strongest bone in the body.
    Loughry broke the thigh bone in the Warriors’ fifth game last season, and his return time to be back with the Warriors was estimated at 12 months.
    But the determined Loughry made it back in little more than half that time, coming back in seven months.

    Carolina Lakes Golf Club opened its course to the veterans for a day of complimentary golf. The golf course provided each foursome with a golf cart, range balls and other necessities. Fidelity gave each veteran a sleeve of golf balls.

  • IL’s Makowski played hard

    Indian Land High School head football coach Horatio Blades could count on Warriors senior defensive lineman William Makowski because, as Blades said, he’s accountable.
    “William is one of the best kids I’ve ever been around,” Blades said. “He’s the epitome of a team player and doesn’t make excuses.
    “William has a lot of ‘want to’ in his play,” Blades said.
    Makowski, a four-year member of the ILHS varsity, is in his second season as a starter in the Warriors’ defensive trenches.

    Sun City Carolina Lakes golfers cleaned out their closets and garages in September to help outfit the next generation of golfers.
