  • West volleyball knocks off...

     The West Brunswick High School varsity volleyball team lost its first four games of the 2017 season and had won only one of 13 sets before a conference match Aug. 29 at Topsail.

    The Trojans pushed their way into the win column in their first Mideastern 3A/4A Conference contest of the season with a 25-19, 13-25, 25-11, 28-26 victory over the Pirates last week in Hampstead.

    Senior setter Payton Roberts led the Trojans (1-6, 1-1) with 16 assists, six aces, a pair of blocks and three kills in the victory.

  • North Myrtle Beach uses balanced...

     SHALLOTTE – The North Myrtle Beach High School (S.C) varsity football team entered Monday night’s contest against Shallotte as the No. 3 ranked team in Class 4A football in the Palmetto State.

    The Chiefs justified that ranking and then some with a 38-12 victory Monday, Sept. 4, over the West Brunswick Trojans at M.H. Rourk Stadium.

    The game was originally scheduled for Friday, Sept. 1, but West athletic director Jimmy Fletcher moved the game to Thursday, Sept. 1, due to a bad weather forecast on Friday.

  • Trojan soccer team improves to 3...

     SHALLOTTE – The West Brunswick High School varsity boys’ soccer team improved to 3-1 with an undefeated week.

    The Trojans defeated the South Columbus Stallions on Aug. 29 before handing the Whiteville Wolfpack a loss Aug. 30. West Brunswick capped its perfect week with a 3-0 victory Friday, Sept. 1, over South Columbus in Tabor City.

  • Living in a fantasy world

     Perhaps the only thing I enjoy more than football is fantasy football.

    That’s right. Three drafts are in the books for the 2017-18 season and here’s hoping I’ll be laying claim to at least a couple of championship trophies by the time Christmas rolls around.

    I’m going to break down my rosters for our readers and I’d appreciate constructive feedback. Tell me what you think by emailing shickman@brunswickbeacon.com.

  • Cougars defeat Scorpions in...

     LELAND - The South Brunswick High School Cougar volleyball team defeated North Brunswick in a conference volleyball match Thursday, Aug. 31.

  • Time Capsule - Aug. 31 edition
  • High school athletics can bring...

     As much as I love college and professional sports, there’s something special about high school athletics.

    I don’t know if it’s the innocence, the purity or the joy of a bunch of 14-to-17-year-olds working together on a playing field or if it’s something else.
