  • Not feeling up to par? It could be an underlying heart problem

    A few weeks ago, as I was grabbing a muffin prior to a Club 25 event at The Lakes, a group of gals from Lockwood Folly collared me and suggested I do a column about heart attacks and women.

    They said that a couple of ladies from Lockwood had sought medical help just in time to avert a serious heart attack. What made it interesting was their symptoms were not the usual ones associated with cardiac problems. No chest pain, no pains in the left arm.

  • West's defense stars in win over Whiteville

    Playing its best defense of the season, the West Brunswick High School football team beat Whiteville 28-6 Friday at M.H. Rourk Stadium.

    Alfy Hill recovered one fumble for a touchdown and blocked a punt to set up another touchdown as West improved to 2-2.

    “Some good things happened early for us,” coach Jimmy Fletcher said. “We made some plays early.”

  • West wins twice, improves to 9-1

    Relying on consistent serving in the first two games from Jordan Winters and Stacy Jackson, the West Brunswick High School Lady Trojans volleyball team routed the New Hanover Wildcats 25-17, 25-12, 25-11 in a conference match Sept. 16.

    The victory improved West’s record to 4-1 in the Mideastern Conference. (West played league leader Hoggard on Tuesday in a match for first place.)

    Winters held serve for six straight points in the first game as the Lady Trojans took a 10-3 lead. Jackson held serve for 10 straight points in the second game as West took a 16-4 lead.

  • Gaines, North Brunswick grind out 27-8 victory

    LELAND—The North Brunswick High School Scorpions beat Lejeune 27-8 Friday in a nonconference football game.

    Before this game started, Anthony “Move The Chains” Gaines was averaging more than 10 yards every time he touched the ball, so it’s no wonder coach Garry Bishop calls on him often. Against Lejeune, Gaines touched the ball 32 times for a total of 192 yards, which included two touchdown runs and a two-point conversion.

    However, it was not only Gaines who shined against Lejeune. D. J. Graham also had two touchdown runs and 87 yards total.

  • Cougars win third straight

    South Brunswick improved to 3-0 by beating Raleigh Cardinal Gibbons 28-21 Friday in Raleigh.

    South regained the lead, 12-7, when Quan Ray scored on a 21-yard run.

    Gibbons went ahead 14-12 on a 3-yard run and extra point in the second quarter.

    The Cougars scored their only points in the quarter on a 40-yard run by Ray. The two-point conversion gave South a 20-14 lead.

  • Laney strikes back, beats West

    Call it the five-minute rule.

    “It’s a standard rule in the soccer business,” West Brunswick High School soccer coach Tripp Smith said, “that five minutes after a goal is scored, you should be on your game, because the chances are another one is going to get scored in those five minutes—whether it’s you or whether it’s the other team.”

    West failed to do that, and the result was a 4-2 loss to the Laney Buccaneers in the conference game Sept 18.
