  • Living in a fantasy world

     Perhaps the only thing I enjoy more than football is fantasy football.

    That’s right. Three drafts are in the books for the 2017-18 season and here’s hoping I’ll be laying claim to at least a couple of championship trophies by the time Christmas rolls around.

    I’m going to break down my rosters for our readers and I’d appreciate constructive feedback. Tell me what you think by emailing shickman@brunswickbeacon.com.

  • West volleyball knocks off...

     The West Brunswick High School varsity volleyball team lost its first four games of the 2017 season and had won only one of 13 sets before a conference match Aug. 29 at Topsail.

    The Trojans pushed their way into the win column in their first Mideastern 3A/4A Conference contest of the season with a 25-19, 13-25, 25-11, 28-26 victory over the Pirates last week in Hampstead.

    Senior setter Payton Roberts led the Trojans (1-6, 1-1) with 16 assists, six aces, a pair of blocks and three kills in the victory.

  • Reed, Mokma lead cross country...

     West Brunswick cross country runners Ethan Reed and Brennan Mokma led the Trojans to a runner-up finish a cross country meet Aug. 31 that featured four Mideastern 3A/4A Conference teams.

    Reed and Mokma finished second and third, respectively, in the boys’ meet as West Brunswick posted an impressive 38 points to finish in second place in last week’s four-team meet.

    The Trojans finished just 15 points behind the meet champion, Hoggard.

    Reed finished the 3.1-mile track in 20:20.36, while Mokma was only a second behind at 20:21.10.

  • Remembering our fallen heroes...

     Labor Day has come to be celebrated by most Americans as the symbolic end of the summer and a day often regarded as one of rest and a time to party. It was originally organized to celebrate various labor associations and their contributions to the U.S. economy. The first Labor Day was held in 1882 when parades were intended to allow the public to appreciate the work of the trade and labor organizations. 

  • Compass Pointe Ladies win 17th...
  • Trojans notch fifth-place...

     Laney captured the team title in a Mideastern 3A/4A Conference golf match for the second time in as many tries. The Buccaneers beat the nearest competitor by 41 strokes during an 18-hole team match Aug. 31 at Belvedere Country Club in Hampstead. The course is a 4,471-yard par 71.

    Laney fired a team score of 235, which was a sizable cushion as Hoggard carded a 276 to secure a second-place finish.
