It was a rainy homecoming night at Devil Hill as the Wade Hampton High School Red Devils tried to break their rival, the Barnwell War Horses, in the first week of regional play. 

In the end, the War Horses couldn't be tamed, and bucked the Red Devils for a 28-21 Barnwell win. 

The Red Devils offense struggled all night to complete passes, although they had plenty of opportunities to grab major yardage in the air. A strong defense, for both teams, made the incomplete passes an important factor in the game. 


Several downtown Hampton businesses stepped up and showed their support for the Wade Hampton High School Red Devils on Friday, Oct. 3 with colorful window displays.

In a competition between shops, the winner of the window decoration contest was Local Finance and Tax Service.

Coming in second place was the well decorated, as always, Frock Shop.
