  • Kuchar falls short with family...
  • BCC student works on grounds...

     Most college students spend their summers working odd jobs and taking their free time with their toes in the sand.

    Chase Bell, a student in Brunswick Community College’s horticulture and turfgrass management program, spent at least part of his summer shagging fly balls from major leaguers and hamming it up with the likes of New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge.

    Bell, a 25-year-old from Georgia who’s been in the BCC turfgrass program for one year, applied for an internship during the 2017 spring semester to work in Jupiter, Fla., for the summer.

  • County senior softball league...

     SHALLOTTE – For a softball league that began with five members, six players shy of fielding an actual team, the Brunswick County Senior Softball League is in a good place in 2017.

    The league has been in existence since 1996 and gives the county’s senior citizens another outlet in which they can remain active.

  • McCray and Vereen compete in...

     Two of the best players in West Brunswick High School football history competed in an all-star game featuring the top high school players in North Carolina.

    Running back Anthony “Bubba” McCray and lineman Taye Vereen, who graduated in June, represented the Trojans on July 19 at the 2017 North Carolina Coaches Association East-West All-Star Game at Jamieson Stadium on the campus of Grimsley High School in Greensboro.

    McCray totaled 43 yards on six carries, including a 37-yard scamper on the team’s longest carry of the game.

  • Southport-Oak Island falls in...

     Two years ago, a Southport-Oak Island all-star team had to beat SouthPark twice to capture the 2015 Dixie Youth State Tournament crown and advance to the World Series.

    Southport-Oak Island did just that and advanced to a Dixie Youth World Series for the second time in three seasons.

    Fast forward to 2017 and this same group of kids found themselves in the same predicament in the Majors state tournament last week in Leland.

    The squad entered the tournament finals having to knock off SouthPark twice to secure the championship.

  • Playing a team game every day of...

     I could go on all day about how sports have impacted my life. Of course, it’s a bit ironic because my best sport was tennis. I was a good high-school tennis player and captured two eastern regional championships during my junior and senior seasons. I wasn’t even close to decent enough to play at the collegiate level, but it was a nice little career I put together.
