Lexington to unveil Downtown Farmer’s Market Saturday –Lexington will open its new Farmers Market on Main Street Saturday. Ten vendors will be on hand to celebrate the grand opening of the town market at the Old Sessions department store site at 116 E. Main St. They will bring fruits, vegetables, jellies, jams, crafts, seafood, plants and flowers for ale from 9a.m. to 1p.m. The market will be open from June to October on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month. Town leaders hope the new venture will bring more people to Main Street and downtown Lexington. “Activity breeds activity. We hope this will bring people to downtown who will come back to visit other businesses,” Mayor Randy Halfacre said. The Lexington farmer’s market is patterned after a similar venture run by the City of Greenville. It has room for 20 vendors, and town officials hope to add even more as the market grows. To spur participation in the new venture, the town is waiving vendor fees for the first year. Anything we can do to improve traffic flow will be a positive for Lexington, he said.
Lexington boys set new record – Lexington runners Tony Morales, Erik Wendt, Zack Trim, Blake White and Colby Coulter set a new school record at the Class 4-A state track meet Saturday. The Wildcats’ 4x800 meter relay team ran a 7:55.25 to finish first overall in the Event. The Lexington girls also set a school record with a time of 9:42.48. Runners for the Lady Wildcats were Allie Callari, Karen Grier, Kaitln Keene, Katelin Killman, Haylee Love and Meri Heneage.
Hucks, Faulkner returning to LHS – Wando head baseball coach Banks Faulkner is taking a job as an assistant at Lexington High School. Faulkner, a former Wildcat player, announced he will be joining former Brookland-Cayce head coach Brian Hucks on the Lexington staff. “I have decided to return to my alma mater to help (Hucks) rebuild the baseball program I care deeply about,” Faulkner said. “I would like to thank all my players and coaches for their hard work and support this season.” As a player, Faulkner helped lead the Wildcats to the 1999 state championship. Faulkner has worked as an assistant at Lexington and Gilbert. He led Wando to an 18-13 record this season. “While this opportunity is exciting, it is hard to leave behind the young men in the Wando baseball program. They are, and always will be, very special to me and have made a big impact on my life.”
