Chesterfield— The Chesterfield High Golden Rams football team wrapped up their season last month with a 9-3 record and advanced to the second round of the Class AA playoffs under Head Coach Chris Arnoult, and the basketball teams have now begun their seasons.

The boys basketball team, led by Head Coach Ernie Davis, recently dropped a game against non-region foe Lewisville, falling 69-56. Last season the Golden Rams missed out on advancing to the Class AA playoffs, a goal that no doubt is high on the agenda for this year’s Golden Rams’ team.

The boys will move into region play this Friday night with a trip to the always tough Lee Central team, then will play Lewisville again on Dec 18.

Region play resumes after the holidays for Chesterfield when they take on county rival Pageland Central on Jan. 2.

Head Coach Chris Clark’s girls’ team opened the season with a hard fought 50-49 win over Lewisville but the Lady Rams too will be facing a tough challenge at Lee Central in the region opener this Friday night.

Last season the Lady Rams earned a fourth place seed in the Class AA playoffs and earned an opening round shocker over number one seed Ninety-Six, 52-50. Chesterfield then lost in the second round to Landrum.

In football news, the Golden Rams opened this year’s Class AA playoffs with a 34-23 win over Fox Creek, before falling to the eventual state champions Abbeville in the second round.

Senior quarterback Savion Watson closed out a stellar career at Chesterfield High with 3548 yards passing this season, along with 42 TD passes, as well as over 500 yards rushing. Sophomore Ricky Lockhart, a wide receiver, had over 1100 yards receiving and averaged nearly 25 yards per catch.

Defensively, the Golden Rams were led by Sophomore linebacker Josh Sellers, who had 126 tackles for the 2017 season.

 Kicker and punter Will Davis was among the best in the state, averaging 37 yards a punt and had 15 touchbacks on kick offs. He was also the team’s second leading scorer with 80 points.
