Bandys High School received 30 laptop computers, valued at more than $35,000, from anonymous benefactors.
"They asked us to come up with a wish list," said Bandys High School Principal Todd Black. "I thought, 'Wow, I'm almost ashamed to ask for something (that costs) that much.'"

Hickory Scalps Indians

October 22, 2010

With a 14-14 tie at halftime and a first half when Hickory was its “own worst enemy,” the Red Tornadoes needed a special second half to keep playoff hopes alive.

According Hickory quarterback Kyle Johnson, it was “gut check time.”

“At halftime, we knew it was a close game, so we had to come out here and finish,” Johnson said. “It was something we hadn’t done all year, and we finally did it.”

Hickory scored three second-half touchdowns, including 14 unanswered points in a 77-second span in the fourth quarter to seal a 35-21 win over rival St. Stephens.
