  • Winter storm wreaks havoc on...

    A winter weather storm that closed Brunswick County Schools for multiple days threw a wrench in the winter sports schedules.

    The West Brunswick High School varsity basketball teams were scheduled to play a pair of Mideastern Conference games upon returning to school Jan. 3, but both games were canceled as a result of the snow and ice that fell on parts of the county.

  • A roaring start to the 2018 NFL...

    If the first weekend of the NFL Playoffs was a precursor for the final four weekends of play this season, boy, we’re in for quite the treat. Of the four Wild Card Round games played this past Saturday and Sunday, three of the four games came down to the final possession, while the other contest wasn’t decided until the four-minute mark of the final period.

    Let’s take an in-depth look at all four games from the first weekend of playoff action.

  • Trojan boys’ squad finishes...

     West Brunswick celebrated a 36-point win over East Columbus last week in the championship game of the Holiday Classic at Brunswick Community College.

    The team’s two games in a holiday tournament at Draughn High School in Valdese were much closer than the Trojans’ blowout victory over the Gators a week ago.

    First-year head coach Ty Johnson’s squad dropped a tight contest against Draughn, the host team, before knocking off Johnson’s alma mater, North Wilkes High School, in a third-place game Thursday, Dec. 28.

     The Dixon High School Christmas Tournament was a war of attrition of sorts for West Brunswick’s varsity girls’ basketball team.

    The Trojans weren’t at full strength in any of the team’s three tournament games.

    Despite the injuries and missing a player due to a pre-planned family vacation, West Brunswick collected a pair of wins and a third-place finish in the three-day event.
