  • West Brunswick hires familiar...

     As the new head basketball coach of the boys’ basketball team at West Brunswick High School, Ty Johnson has big shoes to fill.

    The Trojans are coming off the most successful four-year run in program history, a stretch that included 81 total wins, a conference championship, a run to the 3A Eastern Regional semifinals and four consecutive trips to the third round of the state playoffs under former head coach Eric Davis.

    The Brunswick County Board of Education formally approved Johnson’s hiring Tuesday, May 23.

  • God, family, work, kick butt

     I will see Father’s Day through a different lens this year. For the first time, I may actually receive a gift as I’ve been a Dad to my rough-and-tough little Huck Man for last 11 months or so. There’s not a present in the world that could make me as happy as my big guy does every morning when I see his smiling face.

    I’ve said this before on social media and to my friends and family and I say with the utmost sincerity, if I can be half the father to Huck that my Dad was to me, I’ll be doing an incredible job.

  • Carlyle tabbed league player of...

     West Brunswick’s 2017 season ended with a 2-1 loss in extra innings against Topsail in the fourth round of the state baseball playoffs. With the loss came the conclusion to one of the finest individual careers in the baseball program’s history.

    Johnathan Carlyle had put on a West Brunswick uniform for the last time. He accomplished nearly every individual goal one can accomplish during a high school baseball career, one that was capped with yet another Mideastern 3A/4A Conference Player of the Year award.

  • Benton, Noble sweep conference...

     Fresh off a 25-win season and the program’s first ever trip to the eastern regional finals, the players and coaches on West Brunswick High School’s varsity softball team were essentially locks to receive several postseason awards.

    Those accolades started to roll in last week.

    Senior shortstop McKenzie Benton was named Mideastern 3A/4A Conference Player of the Year and head coach Joe Noble earned the league’s coach of the year honor, according to a league press released issued Wednesday, June 7.

  • North Brunswick’s Medlin named...

     Dustin Medlin inherited a successful baseball program when he accepted the head-coaching job at North Brunswick more than five years ago.

    He has taken the program to new heights, including a state championship appearance, in his stint as the Scorpions’ skipper.

    Medlin led an 18-win team that captured the East Central Conference regular-season championship, earning him the league’s coach of the year award.

    North Brunswick didn’t have its most talented team during Medlin’s time as head coach, the coach said.
