Sumter - Coach Glen Rector’s Varsity Girls basketball team has started region play on a strong note.  After notching a 15 point victor over Orangeburg Prep, the Lady Barons defeated Trinity-Byrnes 65-27 to improve to 2-0 in the region (9-3 overall).  The Lady Barons are led by Seniors Madison Elmore and Haley Roone McCaffrey.  Senior Dubose Alderman, Juniors Andi Grae Wingate and Gracyn Coker have been mainstays in the starting five for the Lady Barons.  January 28th is an important date for the Lady Barons as they travel to currently undefeated Florence Christian to take the lead in the region standings. 

On the boys side, Coach Eddie Talley and the Varsity Boys are off to a slower start.  Starting the region schedule 0-2 (2-9 overall), the Barons will need to heat up if they want to make a run at a state playoff spot.  Coach Talley will lean on Senior Emory Moore who is off to a strong start in region play and Juniors Graham Van Patten, Evan Hoffman, and Miller Jones to lead the team.  Sophomore Tate Sistare has worked his way into the starting lineup, splitting time with Junior Michael Towery

In Equestrian, Coach Patricia Palm has a young team that is performing at a high level.  Freshman Coker Cutler is leading the way for the Baron riders, having already qualified for Regionals in fences and flat.  Junior Kaitlyn Smith and 7th grader Josie Jackson have also qualified in flat.  Senior Emily Anne Beasley has also performed at a high level so far this season.
