  • Beeler shatters personal strikeout mark, whiffs 17 Scorpions

    SHALLOTTE - West Brunswick softball assistant coach Amanda Fields set several individual pitching records during her time pitching for the Trojans.

    If she hangs around much longer, she might have to watch as Morgan Beeler shatters those marks.

    Beeler set yet another personal best ledger with 17 strikeouts against North Brunswick in a 5-0 win on Thursday, March 29, in Shallotte.

    The junior right-hander yielded just three hits and one walk in seven innings as the Trojans seized an early lead and never looked back in the shutout victory.

  • Babson, McDowell carry Trojans to two conference wins

     West Brunswick entered the week before spring break with a 4-6 record and searching for a couple of victories over rivalry teams.

    The Trojans earned a pair of emphatic victories with an 11-1 win over South Brunswick in a six-inning game in Boiling Spring Lakes on March 27 before earning a 4-0 decision over North Brunswick at Mike Alderson Field in Shallotte on Thursday, March 29.

    Sophomore Tanner Babson and senior Owen McDowell combined for seven hits and three RBI in last week’s win over the Scorpions of North Brunswick.
