  • Carolina Slam in December

    The events of my day ate away more daylight than I anticipated. Taking a quick peek out the window to check the tide and quickly gathering my fishing gear, I hit the water. The goal was to continue testing out a rod made by Cousins Tackle. Having only about an hour to get it done, I stayed close to home. Because I was in test mode, I decided to use some different soft plastics, as well.

     SHALLOTTE — West Brunswick beat South Brunswick 48-24 in a Mideastern Conference wrestling match Wednesday, Dec. 18.

    West gained 18 points off forfeits. In the other matches, West won six and South five.

    The match began at heavyweight, and senior Marquis Brown, in his first match of the season, beat junior Colby Hill by second-period fall.

    West got a forfeit at 106 pounds and increased its lead to 18-0 when junior Caleb Jasper beat freshman Bishop Craig by fall with 1.8 seconds left in the second period.

  • Trojans sweep Cougars

     SHALLOTTE — Early on, the rout was on.

    West Brunswick’s boys basketball team doubled the score on a flu-stricken South Brunswick squad 64-32 before a packed gym in a Mideastern Conference game Tuesday night.

    Because of the flu, the Cougars brought only seven players, and one of them fouled out in the third quarter, leaving just six players in uniform.

    But the game had been decided long before then — in the first quarter, in fact. West surged to a 26-10 lead after the initial eight minutes.

  • Trojans avenge loss to Scorpions

     After three games of “close but no cigar,” West Brunswick finally got a stogie.

    The Trojans’ boys basketball team came from behind in the last four minutes to edge North Brunswick 58-53 last Friday night.

    It was a non-conference game but more important for bragging rights as West evened the score with a county rival. North had nipped West by one point in their first meeting 10 days earlier.
