  • Trojans second in golf tourney

     West Brunswick High School finished second in a Mideastern 3A/4A Conference boys’ golf match March 12 at Rivers Edge.

    Laney finished with a team score of 334, five strokes fewer than West, playing on its home course. South Brunswick was third (371) in the seven-team event.

    Laney’s Sam Young was the medalist, shooting a 6-over-par 78 on the 6,100-yard course.

    West’s Landon Patterson was second (79) and Drew Boyer tied for third (80).

    West’s other top-four scorers were Zack Flaccavento (88) and Cole Snyder (92).

    The start of the West Brunswick High School football team season in 2014 will be different from the start of the 2013 season in at least one way: promotion.

    Already, plans are being made for the first home game, against Socastee (S.C.) High School, in which West coach Scott Frazier wants to set a home-game attendance record.

    West usually has its largest attendance for games against South Brunswick and games on Senior Night. More fans attended those games this year than West’s home game in the state playoffs.

     I love writing this column. Through it, I have the opportunity to do some marvelous things, like attending the Hootie and the Blowfish Monday After the Masters Tournament at the Dye Course in Barefoot Landing. 

    With my press pass around my neck, I get to go “under the ropes” to be close to the golfers and celebrities.

  • The light at the end of the...

     One thing I know for certain is it has been one long and cold winter. Even well into April, we are having trouble shaking the effects of winter. Obviously it was cold, but the other kicker has been all the rain. However, as we approach Easter weekend, I feel as if the light at the end of the tunnel is bright, and yes, we are going to get back to fishing.
