ROCKINGHAM – If the Rockingham Middle School girls’ basketball team wanted to reclaim the Southeastern Middle School Athletic Conference title from rival Hamlet, it needed to do one thing – stop Ryelan Lyerly. 

HAMLET – In its final home game of the season, the No. 2 Lady Red Rams basketball team of Hamlet Middle School earned a huge win in dramatic fashion over the visiting No. 3 Lady Tigers of West Hoke Middle, and earned a ticket to the conference title game with it.

ROCKINGHAM – The Richmond Senior High School boys’ basketball victory on the road at Jack Britt High School last Friday was both a big moment for this season’s Raiders, as well as a milestone win for the program.

ELLERBE – When the Hamlet Middle School girls' basketball team travelled to Ellerbe Middle School to face the Lady Wildcats, there was a little more at stake than bragging rights between the two in-county opponents. 

HAMLET – Ryelan Lyerly dominated the stat sheet in Monday’s girls’ basketball game between Hamlet and Cordova middle schools. 

HAMLET – Hamlet’s boys’ basketball team most likely punched a ticket to the playoffs with a win over Cordova on Monday, but Keith Parson’s Red Rams received all they could handle from the Cavaliers. 

ROCKINGHAM – Cordova Middle School is a name that a lot of long-time residents of Richmond County are still getting used to.  Since replacing the now-closed Rohanen Middle School in 2017, it’s difficult for many area sports fans to get used to the Cavaliers as being one-fourth of the Richmond Raider feeder programs. 

ROCKINGHAM – Over the weekend, several high school football programs, including the Richmond Raiders, took to Twitter to announce their upcoming 2019 football schedules.
