  • New Trojans' basketball...

    After a 1-19 season, West Brunswick boys’ basketball coach Brad Lewis has resigned.

    Lewis made the announcement to his team Feb. 22 after it had lost to Eastern Wayne in a first-round game of the N.C. High School Athletic Association Class 3A playoffs.

    “I didn’t get the job done as well as I would have liked, and I’m sure that the kids would have liked,” he said.

    “They gave me plenty of time, and everybody at West Brunswick was so good to me, and Coach Floyd and Coach Heady before him, especially.”

  • Spring's arrival will bring...

    Spring isn’t quite here yet, but it won’t be long before Brunswick County anglers will be out in force stalking those feisty spring redfish. Redfish travel in schools in the spring, cruising the shallows looking for shellfish and small fish to eat.

  • The Future of America's...

    Brant McMullan achieved some life goals when he attended and spoke Feb. 24 at the United We Fish rally at the U.S. Capitol to amend the Magnuson-Stevens Conservation and Management Act. But another goal—passage of a bill to amend the act—is still in doubt.

    “I thought it went really good,” McMullan said about the rally. “If I were to guess, 40 percent were from the New York-Massachusetts area, 40 percent from the Carolinas and the remainder from Florida, up and down the East Coast. A couple of people came from Alaska.”

  • Far out and cool stuff at the...

    I love the annual Carolinas Section PGA Merchandise Show and try to go each year.

    Last week’s show was bigger than last year’s. More than 1,500 golf professionals from all over the Carolinas and even farther assembled for elections, meetings, seminars and to preview what’s new in the world of golf products.

    BEACHCOMBERS

    The Beachcombers played at Brierwood. Low gross: Reese Evans, 78; Jim Ritter, Jim Beairsto, 88. Low net: Ritter, 64; Evans, 68; Beairsto, 69. Team (two low nets each hole): Ritter, Evans, Bob Smith and Beairsto, 22-under par. Golfer of the week was Evans.

    BRIERWOOD MIXED SCRAMBLE

    Rita DuGan, Fran Thomas, and Randy Coates were first at 1-over par in the Brierwood nine-hole mixed scramble Feb. 24. Finishing second was the team of Marianne Nobes, Ralph Trimmer, and Bob Nobes. The team of Sharon Beavers, Glen Green and John Beavers were third.

  • Trojan golf team starts Waccamaw...

    The WBHS men’s golf team began tournament play this week in the new 2A/3A Waccamaw Conference.

    Last year, the Trojans won the 3A division of the Mideastern Conference and advanced to the regionals, finishing eighth. For the overall combined 3A/4A individual golfers, Harrison Taylor, Greg Hensley, Cole Grammen and Jack Donoghue were in the top 25 for scoring average. This year looks to be even better with the loss of only one senior.

  • BCC splits doubleheader in home...

    The Brunswick Community College baseball team opened its 2010 season Sunday by splitting a doubleheader with USC Lancaster at West Brunswick High School.

    The Dolphins won the first game 8-1 but lost the second game 8-7.

  • Cannon, BCC slam Potomac State

     BCC hit four home runs—one of them a grand slam by Jay Cannon—in routing Potomac State College 16-5 in a nonconference baseball game Sunday afternoon at West Brunswick High School.

    Trey Euverard, Daniel Fischer and Ben Morris also homered for the Dolphins (4-5).

    THE FIRST TEE OF BRUNSWICK COUNTY

    At the end of last year, an exciting participant opportunity presented itself to our youth.  Hank Haney and Golf Digest have teamed together to provide a scholarship to the Hank Haney International Junior Golf Academy in Hilton Head, SC.

  • South’s Ikalowych top...

     Brunswick County had 12 wrestlers compete Friday and Saturday in the N.C. High School Athletic Association wrestling tournament, but only one finished in the top six. South Brunswick junior Steven Ikalowych was the top county wrestler, losing to eventual first- and third-place finishers.

    At 160 pounds, Steven Ikalowych beat Blake Harwood of Mount Pleasant 8-3 in a first-round match. In the second round, eventual state champion Keith Brown of Williams beat Ikalowych 13-1.
