  • BCC bats light up scoreboard in 14-0 triumph

    Brunswick Community College’s second inning was as explosive as a fireworks show, as the Dolphins whipped Stanly Community College 14-0 Sunday afternoon.

    “We just got hits at the right time,” BCC coach Robbie Allen said. “It feels good because we haven’t been able to score bunches this year. We haven’t been able to string together hits. Now that we kind of know how that feels, maybe we’ll be able to do that more often.

  • Jordan Davis drills winning run in bottom of ninth

    Trailing by one run going into the bottom of the ninth inning, Brunswick Community College came from behind to edge Southeastern Community College 7-6 last Wednesday night.

    The first two Dolphin batters in the bottom of the ninth, David Smeltzer and Jeremy King, each got hit by a pitch. Then T.J. Overman smacked a base hit up the middle, driving in Smeltzer to tie the game at 6-6, and Overman went to second on the throw to home. Southeastern intentionally walked Frankie Everitte to load the bases with no outs.

  • Gamble pays off for BCC in last-inning win over Hudson Valley

    SHALLOTTE—Brunswick Community College used a daredevil play to beat Hudson Valley in the second game of a doubleheader Monday night.

    The Dolphins fell 1-0 in the first game.

    The bats for both teams started working in the nightcap, and the score was tied 3-3 heading into the Dolphins’ half of the seventh.

    Jeremy King reached on a throwing error and got to second on a wild pitch. Then with two outs, Denver Nixon drilled a base hit up the middle that couldn’t score King because it was hit too hard.

  • BCC Dolphins come up short

    SHALLOTTE—There are two ways to look at Brunswick Community College’s baseball doubleheader last Thursday against the visiting Louisburg Hurricanes.

    A glass-half-full person might marvel at the fact a first-year club went toe-to-toe with a program that has won 25 conference titles and made 10 trips in the National Junior College Athletic Association World Series.

    A glass-half-empty person might look at the two narrow defeats and think what might have been. BCC had chances to win both games but came up short, 3-1 and 5-3.

  • BCC cruises past Clinton

    WILMINGTON—The simple pre-game “How are you doing coach?” was met with “I’ll let you know in a few hours.”

    It was Friday, the quarterfinal round of the Carolinas Junior College Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament at Cape Fear Community College’s Schwartz Center and you could sense the urgency engulfing Brunswick Community College coach Walter Shaw.

    And after dispatching Clinton (S.C.) Junior College 86-69 to advance to a semifinal match-up with Spartanburg Methodist College, Shaw’s demeanor didn’t changed.
