  • Tilley, Trojans defeat Scorpions in five innings

    Head coach Mike Alderson has spent much of the last two weeks tinkering with several lineups as his veteran-laden West Brunswick baseball squad suffered a pair of lopsided losses during the early stages of the 2013 season. After dropping an 11-3 decision to Whiteville in the Waccamaw Conference opener, Alderson tweaked the lineup for his club’s next game Friday against cross-county rival North Brunswick.
    The decision worked brilliantly, thanks in large part to performances by junior Chandler Taylor and senior pitcher Landon Tilley.
