The perpetual grind of producing written recaps day after day after day for five years began to take its toll this spring and we shifted gears and began experimenting with a new format for reporting the local sports news of the day.
That’s how Last Night in the Lowco was born. We played around with the format, then worked with WHHI-TV to make it fit the parameters to best serve their viewers and bring a daily local sports presence to their News at 5. Last Night in the Lowco gives a 90-second rapid rundown of the biggest local sports news of the day every Monday through Thursday, and Lowco Weekend Wraparound provides a longer look at the biggest stories of the week and a glimpse of what’s ahead each Friday.
You can also gain early access to the segment every day and watch anytime with a pledge of $1 or more per month to support grassroots local sports coverage at Patreon.com/LowcoSports.
Here’s an example of Last Night in the Lowco from earlier this week spotlighting six Beaufort-based Extra Mile Club track and field athletes who qualified for AAU Junior Nationals.
And one from Thursday highlighting the SEB Prime 14U National baseball team from Bluffton that went 6-1 and finished fifth among 88 teams at the Prep Baseball Report National Championship in Atlanta.
In today’s Weekend Wraparound (now available for Patreon supporters!) we tell you about a Lowco golfer who helped South Carolina retain the Watson Cup this week in Scotland, give an update on Beaufort High student-athlete Anderson Jones in his recovery from a tragic accidental fall that left him without the use of his legs, and give you a glimpse of the all-star baseball teams repping the Lowco in the Dixie state tournaments.
You’ll be seeing much more along these lines when fall hits — and you’ll LOVE what we have planned for high school football season — so if you value what we do, go ahead and pledge a buck or two a month to help us keep it going so you can get early access to our content and gain access to exclusive content and swag (swag upgrades coming soon!) and help us keep it going — and growing!
