    Grapplers on West Brunswick High School’s varsity wrestling team may have faced an extra bit of pressure during a Tuesday, Jan. 9, conference match against Laney.

    While Laney has one of the best squads in the league, West Brunswick competitors also tried to secure a victory for their longtime head coach Jimmy Caraway, who entered the contest one victory shy of his 300th.

    The match was not completed by press time.

  • 300! Caraway notches milestone...

    WILMINGTON – West Brunswick junior Javon Bethel took the mat in the 195-pound weight class with his squad leading 36-23.

    There were only three matches left in the meet, so the Trojans needed to just find three more points in one of the next three weight classes to knock off perennial powerhouse Laney in a Mideastern Conference wrestling match Tuesday, Jan. 9.

    Lincoln Smith, a senior wrestler at West Brunswick High School, secured a fifth-place finish at last week’s Chapel Hill High School Tiger Holiday Classic tournament. Smith missed all of last season after three knee surgeries and is off to a fast start in the 2017-18 campaign. A competitor in the 160-pound weight class, Smith is poised for strong showings at the regional and state championships, West wrestling coach Jimmy Caraway said. 

  • Fisheries ask general public to...

     The N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries issued a news release encouraging the public to report any cold-stunned trout they may see in North Carolina coastal waters.

    During the winter, spotted seatrout move to deeper, warmer waters in coastal creeks, bays and the ocean. Cold stuns occur when there is a sudden drop in water temperature or prolonged periods of cold weather that makes the fish so sluggish, humans can harvest them with their hands, according to a N.C. Department of Environmental Quality news release issued Dec. 28.

  • Coast Guard hosting women’s only...

     The USCG Auxiliary Flotilla 10-5 will teach a women’s only safe boating class on Saturday, Jan. 27, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Oak Island Parks and Recreation Center at 3003 E. Oak Island Drive.

    Mark Picciano, a flotilla staff officer for public affairs with the USCG Auxiliary, wrote in a Dec. 27 news release that “safe boating classes are a great way to prepare for boating season.”
