     SHALLOTTE --- West Brunswick has one of the best baseball programs in eastern North Carolina. Former head coach Mike Alderson built the Trojans into one of the state’s top-notch programs during an illustrious 26-year career as the team’s skipper.

  • Surviving another season of...

     Another church league softball regular season is behind us and we have plenty of strawberries (the scrapes, not the delicious fruit) and sore right arms to prove it.

    I have played with my church, Eastside Fellowship, for the past three seasons. We’ve improved dramatically during that time.

    If memory serves me correctly, we lost our first game of the season three years ago by a narrow margin, 28-3.

    We made the decision lots of churches in the league have to make and it’s not an easy one.
