  • Carolinas is the place to be for...

    We’ve been toying around with feelings of fall for about a month now, but as of today, there is no doubt fall is here.

    You’ve heard me say it many times, but there is no place like the Carolinas in October. And besides the light north winds, comfortable temperatures and low humidity, fishing is about to be incredible.

  • Caddie's journal: The...

    From Aug. 30 to Sept. 7, I traveled with Dalton Gore as his chaperone and caddie to Pebble Beach, Calif., for the Walmart First Tee Open at Pebble Beach.

    This was Dalton’s second trip to the event, and I wondered whether it would match the excitement and success of last year’s. This is a continuation of the diary. The first part was in the Sept. 24 edition.

    Friday, Sept. 4

  • West sweeps season series with...

    West Brunswick scored two touchdowns in the final 2 minutes, 18 seconds of the first half—including a 45-yard pass from Quan Bates to Thomas Reaves on the last play of the first half—and went on to beat South Brunswick 41-16 in the opening game of the Waccamaw Conference football season Monday night at M.H. Rourk Stadium.

  • Wolfpack defeat Scorpions in...

    WHITEVILLE—On another rainy Friday night, when some high school football games were postponed, the Whiteville Wolfpack had no problem handling the Scorpions of North Brunswick in a 30-20 victory.

    The game was the start of conference play in a stadium filled with tradition, dating back to World War II.

  • South avenges early-season loss...

    BOILING SPRING LAKES—When the West Brunswick Trojan and South Brunswick Cougar junior varsity football teams played Sept. 3, the Trojans held off a Cougar comeback for a 26-22 victory. That meeting seemed like a defensive struggle compared to what happened Sept. 24 in Boiling Spring Lakes. In a game that featured more than 600 yards of total offense, South scored early and often en route to a 45-27 victory.

  • West's boys dominate cross-...

    West’s top-five runners finished in the top six in winning a three-team boys’ cross-country meet Sept. 23 at North Brunswick.

    Roberto Valerio was first and Juan Gonzalez second in pacing West to a team score of 18 points—15 points are perfect finish.

    North was second with 42 points and West Bladen third with 81 points.

    West’s Ronnie Dellinger was fourth, Jason Huff fifth and John Frink sixth, completing the team scoring.

    Other West finishers: Bryan Murdaugh, ninth; Dylan Bernier, 12th; James Hall, 15th.

  • Lower-seeds help South remain...

    Getting continued good play from lower-seeded players, the South Brunswick girls tennis team routed Whiteville 9-0 Sept. 24 at South.

    South improved to 5-0 in the conference, 7-0 overall.

    The Cougars’ No. 4-6 singles players lost four games in six sets.

    At No. 4. Sarah Brock beat Allison Royal 6-0, 6-0. At No. 5, Hilary Walker beat Jacq Rapely 6-0, 6-0. At No. 6, Tiffany Capps beat Emily Maultsby 6-2, 6-2.

  • Jones scores four goals in South...

    BOILING SPRING LAKES—Robert Jones scored four goals and Tyler Evans two as South Brunswick beat North Brunswick 6-3 in a Waccamaw Conference soccer game Sept. 23 at Jack Campbell Stadium.

    Jones scored the first goal six minutes into the game off a corner kick from Tyler Fisher. Eight minutes later, another goal by Jones put South ahead 2-0.

    North cut the lead to 2-1 when Eric Spafford scored on a penalty kick. But South took a 3-1 lead when Jones scored off a deflection.

  • McCumbee finishes 16th in Las...

    What looked to be a promising finish in the Las Vegas 350 for Chad McCumbee and the SS Green Light team ended with a disappointing 16th-place finish.

    McCumbee won $11,430 and has won $225,719 this season.

    McCumbee was quick during the heat of the day in both of Saturday’s practice sessions, running in the top 10. He qualified TheGPSstore.com No. 07 in the seventh position and things looked good for the SS Green Light team.

  • October good time for spot...

    October has arrived and the spot have made their appearance on local fishing piers. There have been decent runs of the tasty panfish for the last week, and though size and duration vary, if you’re lucky or persistent, you could catch a cooler full of spot just right for the frying pan.
