  • West’s Zio scores 100th career...

     LELAND — When someone reaches a sports milestone, the player usually asks her coaches and teammates to sign the game ball.

    Instead of autographs, Carla Zio just got a nose print on hers.

    The star scorer became the first player in West Brunswick High School history to score 100 goals last Thursday after she recorded six in a 9-0 win over North Brunswick.

    After the victory and with her Trojan teammates all around, coach Brian Quinn ceremoniously gave Zio the game ball.

  • Monday After the Masters...

     I love writing this column. Through it, I have the opportunity to do some marvelous things, like attending the Hootie and the Blowfish Monday After the Masters Tournament at the Dye Course in Barefoot Landing. 

    With my press pass around my neck, I get to go “under the ropes” to be close to the golfers and celebrities.
