Baptist Hill Bobcats fall in 1-A state title to Lamar 74-46

HOLLYWOOD, SC (WCSC) - The Baptist Hill Bobcats fell to the Lamar Silver Foxes 74-46 in the Bobcats first attempt at a state title.

Quarterback Corey Fields had another amazing stat line in his final high school game throwing for 335 yards and 5 touchdowns in addition to running for 83 yards, but it wouldn't be enough.

Friday night's score made it the highest score state title game in SCHSL history. The Silver Foxes also set the record for highest individual score in SCHSL state title game history.

The teams played at Charlie W. Johnson Stadium (Benedict College) in Columbia for the 1-A state final.

It was the first time in 25 years, a Charleston County School represented the district in the state finals.

While the Bobcats went up against an undefeated team, Baptist Hill had not one, but multiple players ranked in the top 10 in categories statewide, according to Max Preps.

If Baptist Hill had won, not only would it have been the first time the school took the title in history, but would have also been the first time a CCSD football team came home with the state title in 35 years.
