Laurens has changed its preseason football schedule.

The Raiders will still scrimmage at Belton-Honea Path on Aug. 4, but the Aug. 9 opponent at K.C. Hanna Stadium will be Hillcrest, not Woodmont.

The Raiders will take on May River in Irmo’s jamboree on Aug. 13, with the two to tangle at approximately 6:30 p.m. Laurens will not play in Greer’s jamboree, on Aug. 14, as previously announced.

The Clinton O Zone all-stars remain alive in the Dixie Youth State Tournament in Moncks Corner with a 4-1 victory over Hartsville.

The 11-12 year olds take on Central/Clemson on Wednesday at 8 p.m. That team handed Clinton its only loss on Monday, 12-7.

Against Hartsville, Talan Campbell, Zack Lawson and Dalton Williams shared the pitching chores. Lawson, Williams and Rhett Gilliam each collected a hit.

The winner of Wednesday’s game will face either Aynor or Cheraw on Thursday at 10 a.m. in the finals. A second game, if needed, is to be played at 2 p.m.
