  • South Brunswick tight end signs with Citadel

    BOILING SPRING LAKES—Seated behind a long table in the South Brunswick High School library, James Robey was the center of attention as he waited for one of the biggest moments of his young life.

    With a few subtle movements of his right hand, it was over.

    “I feel relieved really, glad the whole process is over with,” Robey said last Wednesday after signing a national letter of intent to play football at The Citadel. “I’m ready to get started, ready to get down there.”

  • BCC locks up local volleyball recruit

    SHALLOTTE—Coach Stephanie Beach didn’t have to travel far to find the Brunswick Community College volleyball program’s first local recruit.

    West Brunswick High School senior Jordan Clear signed with the Lady Dolphins last Friday in the school library.

    Beach was an assistant coach at West Brunswick the last two years and saw first hand what Clear can do on the court.

  • West Brunswick boys give Jacksonville a scare

    SHALLOTTE—Coach Brad Lewis has a theory as to why the West Brunswick High School boys’ basketball team has played so well this season against Jacksonville.

    “I guess because it doesn’t say Hanover or Hoggard on the jersey,” Lewis said following the Trojans’ final regular-season home game. “I don’t know if our guys really understand how good that team is.”

  • Senior leadership not enough for Lady Trojans

    SHALLOTTE—In their final regular-season home game, seniors Miranda Jenrette and Jordan Clear gave their usual strong effort.

    Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to carry the West Brunswick High School girls’ basketball team to a victory.

    Jenrette reached a career high with 27 points and came up with six steals and Clear recorded team highs with 11 rebounds and seven steals in Friday’s contest against Jacksonville.

  • South Brunswick boys wrap up county championship

    LELAND—Ryan Waldrep called it one of his best “hustle” games.

    South Brunswick High School boys’ basketball coach Dan McGougan said Waldrep had a “good night, but he does that every night. But tonight was one of his best.”

    And North Brunswick coach Travis Lemanski is hoping some of his underclassmen such as Reggie Cobia, Tyshon Walker and others can get to that level before their prep basketball careers come to an end.

  • Lady Scorpions sprint past South Brunswick

    LELAND—North Brunswick moved a step closer to securing the No. 1 seed from the Waccamaw 1A/2A Conference in the Class 2A high school girls’ basketball playoffs with a 57-40 victory against county rival South Brunswick Friday night.

    With one conference game remaining in the regular season (Monday at South Columbus), the Lady Scorpions (7-4 conference, 14-6 overall) were one win away from that goal.

    They also clinched at least a share of the Brunswick County championship, with a season-ending game against West Brunswick Friday night to determine the champ.

  • Wrestlers set for regionals

    Before a high school wrestler can think about winning a state championship, he must first secure an invitation to the state tournament.

    That’s what this weekend’s regional tournaments are all about. The top performers in the dozen regionals scheduled Friday and Saturday throughout North Carolina will move on. The rest will go home.

    West Brunswick wrestlers will compete in the East 3A Regional at South Central High School near Greenville, while grapplers from South Brunswick and North Brunswick travel to Croatan High School for the East 1A/2A Regional.

  • Battle lines redrawn

    SHALLOTTE—One of the most important victories of the year for West Brunswick High School athletics didn’t happen on a court or field. It happened in a meeting room.

    The school was notified last week it will no longer be a member of the Mideastern 3A/4A Conference when the next realignment takes effect at the start of the 2009-10 school year.

    “I’m excited. I think it’s going to be great for our program. It’s good for our kids,” said West Brunswick athletics director Marcia Heady.
