The seventh-ranked team in the state has its eyes on No. 1.

Ridgeland-Hardeeville’s girls are ranked seventh in the S.C. Basketball Coaches Association’s preseason Class AA poll. With eight returning players, including six seniors and reigning Region 5-AA player of the year Jayme Chisholm, the Jaguars are primed to be a state-title contender.

They’d like another shot at No. 1 Bishop England, the defending champions, which eliminated RHHS from last season’s playoffs with a 54-36 win in the Lower State semifinals.


Marcus Lattimore made good on his promise. We thank him.

The former University of South Carolina football star decided last year that he wanted to provide Thanksgiving meals for those in need. Lattimore and his stepfather Vernon Smith helped feed more than 400 Jasper residents. It was an almost spur-of-the moment collaboration with Randy Horton’s Bar-B-Q-Grill, Jimmy Baker, Myra Collins and the county’s Council on Aging.
