  • Williamson resigns as West...

     Kelly Williamson has resigned as West Brunswick’s head football coach.

    Williamson resigned Monday, Jan. 22, he told the Beacon Tuesday afternoon.

    He had worked as the Trojans’ head football coach since 2015, replacing former head coach Bob Hanna.

    “I’m just looking for some other opportunities,” Williamson said. “I appreciate the time I spent at West Brunswick with the kids and the families I got to know. I appreciate the community support. That’s really it.”

  • Trojan wrestlers capture 2018...

     SHALLOTTE – After collecting his 300th career head coaching victory against Laney in early January, West Brunswick’s Jimmy Caraway said the win over the Buccaneers “meant nothing if we don’t beat North Brunswick.”

    He can stop worrying about a powerful North Brunswick squad as Caraway’s squad clobbered the Scorpions, 50-21, in a Wednesday, Jan. 24, match that determined the 2017-18 Mideastern Conference regular season champion.

  • North Brunswick hires Bryan...

    First-year head coach Darren Willis resigned from his post as head coach of the North Brunswick High School football team following a 1-10 season and the school has tabbed Bryan Davis the new chief of the Scorpion football program.

    North Brunswick athletic director Randy Fennell confirmed the decision in a news release issued Wednesday, Jan. 24.

    Davis marks the third Scorpion head coach in the last four seasons. Larry Brock and Willis, most recently, preceded the new coach.

  • Mercer matches career best with...

     SHALLOTTE –Dylan Johnson took over a West Brunswick’s girls’ basketball team two years ago that had finished in the bottom half of the Mideastern Conference standings several consecutive years prior to his arrival.

    Now in his second year as the Trojan head coach, Johnson has guided his squad to fourth place in the league standings after capturing victories in three of the last four games.

    West Brunswick (11-7, 4-4) earned wins over fellow 3A competitors Topsail, North Brunswick and South Brunswick in a span of five days last week.

  • Daniels’ 26 not enough as...

     SHALLOTTE – The last time Ty Johnson’s West Brunswick team squared off against Laney, it found itself down by more than 20 points in the third quarter.

    Last week’s Friday, Jan. 19, game between the two teams was very much competitive, but the result remained the same as Laney squeaked past West Brunswick with a 65-60 victory.

  • Bethel stays unbeaten, captures...

     It’s been a storybook senior season for West Brunswick wrestler Jacary Bethel.

    The 170-pound reigning eastern regional champion continued his stellar 2017-18 campaign with a pair of individual tournament titles in the last two weekends.

    Jacary Bethel captured the 170-pound weight division title at the Bulldog Brawl on Jan. 20-21 at St. Pauls High School in Robeson County and the 18th Boneyard Bash championship in the same weight class at Jack Britt High School on Jan. 12-13.

  • Dylan Johnson deserves praise...

     About four years ago, girls’ basketball squads in the Mideastern Conference could look at their schedules and automatically chalk the West Brunswick game as a win.

    That’s how far the Lady Trojans had fallen, to the cellar of the league standings.
