Covington uses her story as a breast cancer survivor to help others
Life for Tiffany Smith Covington changed one morning 14 years ago when she found a lump in her breast.
The Bennettsville native remembered it like it was yesterday.
"I was getting ready for work," she said. "I did a self-breast exam in the shower. I found a lump. I just brushed it off."
At the time, she was 28, had two small children and a marriage not in a good place.

Bulldogs look to bounce back against Seahawks
After falling from the ranks of the undefeated, the Marlboro County High football team faces another tough challenge.
"This will be something of the proverbial gut check for us this week. It isn't so much about winning or losing but about playing our best football for 48 minutes," said head coach Dean Boyd.
Last week against Hartsville, the defense kept the game close for a half but the flood gates opened after intermission. With the offense struggling, the defense could not maintain the pressure on the Red Foxes.

MCHS to host Hartsville in battle of top ranked teams
After defeating South Florence handily last Friday, the Marlboro County High football team has wrapped up the non-region segment of the season undefeated at 4-0. Last season at the same juncture, the Bulldogs were 2 and 3 and struggling.
So what is the biggest difference?
“It has to be the turnover ratio. Turnovers by our defense and our offense protecting the ball has been a key to our success so far this season,” said head coach Dean Boyd. “Creating turnovers is mainly a result of a defense that is causing chaos with an offense, penetrating into their backfield and not letting them operate comfortably. That's what we have been doing.”
