  • BCC finishes 2-1 in weekend...

     BOLIVIA — The Brunswick Community College volleyball team played three matches over the weekend at the Dinah E. Gore Fitness & Aquatics Center gym.

    Against Guildford Tech on Sunday, BCC won 25-27, 25-22, 25-16, 25-22.

    BCC trailed 8-1 in the first and fought off two game points before losing.

    The second game was tied 22-22 before BCC gained a point off an errant serve. An errant Guilford hit and a kill by Katrina Brown won the game.

  • Reels are starting to sing again

    By Capt. Derek Treffinger

     The king mackerel fishing has finally started to improve this week. Good catches of 15- to 30-pound fish were coming from hard bottom areas and ledges in 60 to 75 feet of water. This can only mean one thing — the kings are on the move back inshore. Cooler air and water temperatures will trigger these fish to move near shore. Once the water temperatures reaches the ideal 72 to 76 degrees, there is almost a guaranteed bite somewhere between the beach and shark hole.

  • Questions, questions about how...

     Delane and Jessica Edwards from the Whiteville area fished with me Friday, Aug. 22. Delane Edwards started right out of the gate with the usual questions, “How long you been doing this, Captain?” “Do you think we will catch anything today, Captain?” “How old are you, Captain?” “Where you from, Captain?”

  • BCC wins volleyball opener

     BOLIVIA — The Brunswick Community College volleyball team beat the St. Andrews’ junior varsity 25-15, 26-24, 25-9 Sunday, Aug. 24, at the Dinah E. Gore Fitness & Aquatics Center gym.

    BCC has a new coach this season, Justin Hoskins, and the Dolphins played before an enthusiastic crowd of many fellow student-athletes.

    Morgan Sullivan served the Dolphins to a 10-4 lead in the first game and the Dolphins controlled the rest of the game for the victory.

  • Play It Forward

     Only in golf do we think we are touring pros.

    Here’s the deal. Most of the other sports we watch on TV are team sports, with highly trained, muscular professional players. Each sport has specialty players: catchers, pitchers, outfielders and infielders in baseball; linemen, receivers, quarterbacks, halfbacks, punters and kickers in football — and on and on in sports like soccer and lacrosse and field hockey.

    In golf, you are a one-person team playing against a golf course.

    You can have dozens of lessons (like me), read golf instructional books (like me), watch golf videos (like me) and still have a lousy game (like me).

    When we first moved here and I had the freedom to play golf anytime, my game improved and I actually broke 80 twice. My handicap went down, I won some tournaments and was happy as a clam (or Rory McIlroy, when he won the PGA Championship earlier this month).
