    BOILING SPRING LAKES—North Brunswick won its third straight conference football game, beating South Brunswick 24-14 Friday.

    “It felt good tonight,” said North quarterback A.J. Perkins, whose passing was one the keys to the Scorpions’ victory. “We feel if we have the ball near the red zone, we can put it in.”

    The victory put North at 3-2 in the Waccamaw Conference, 5-5 overall.

    Three players on BCC’s first volleyball team were honored during sophomore night Oct. 23 in the Dinah E. Gore Fitness and Aquatics Center gym.

    “They are very, very special to me and very dear to my heart,” coach Stephanie Beach said in a pregame ceremony. “I will miss these girls terribly.”

  • November is time to fish for...

    With November about to arrive, the thoughts of saltwater anglers turn to speckled trout. Although trout are present in our waters throughout the year, they are the No. 1 inshore target during cold weather because they roam around in large schools and can be caught on all but the coldest days. Late fall and winter trout fishing is an old Southern art form.

    Wilmington based brothers, Mark and Billy Emmart fished aboard their boat, Moon Doggie, in the annual Fall Brawl King Classic, hosted this weekend out of the Ocean Isle Fishing Center. One hundred seventy fishing teams from across the Southeast entered the event and aspired to win the top prize of over $15,000, but this year the Emmarts punched their ticket and walked away with the big money.

  • Ximena makes better bodies for...

    About a month ago, I walked into Lori’s Golf Shop in Calabash to meet with Lori DeSimone about a donation for a charity event. When she came out of her office, I did a double take.

    Lori is an LPGA pro who owns Lori’s Golf Shop, gives golf lessons and conducts ladies’ golf trips to Bald Head Island and other venues. She has always been a cute gal, with a muscular athlete’s body and an up-beat personality.

    I noticed a change since I had seen her last. Lori’s skin glowed, she was thinner, her eyes sparkled.

  • Golf action

    Michael Coleman made a hole-in-one Oct. 2 on the 164-yard ninth hole at Brierwood.
