  • North Brunswick beats South...

    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.

    South, hurt by two unsportsmanlike-conduct penalties and two fumbles, dropped to 2-2 in the conference, 4-4 overall.

  • South finishes season 15-0

    BOILING SPRING LAKES—The unbeaten regular season by the South Brunswick girls’ tennis team is a great example of individuals playing hard to achieve to a common goal.

    Five seniors helped lead the way: starters Sarah Brock, Tiffany Capps and Hilary Walker, along with Meagan Barnes and Danielle Jones.

    “All five have made a big contribution,” coach Debbie Adams said, whose Cougars won a conference championship for the third straight year. They finished 10-0 in the conference.

  • BCC honors three volleyball...

    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.

    Hannah Ennis, Kelly Garry and Jordan Clear helped the Dolphins last year win the NJCAA Region 10 Division II regular-season title and region championship tournament. The tournament title qualified BCC for the NJCAA national tournament.

    “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.”

  • VIDEO INCLUDED Valerio, West win...

    BOILING SPRING LAKES—Roberto Valerio paced the West Brunswick boys’ cross-country team Oct. 20 to its first conference championship in school history.

    Valerio, a junior, finished first and five other Trojan runners finished in the top 10 as West won the Waccamaw Conference championship meet at South Brunswick.

    The Trojans finished with 24 points, South with 56 points and North with 62 points.

  • VIDEO INCLUDED West wins first...

    The West Brunswick volleyball team won its first conference title since 1992 by beating South Columbus 25-17, 25-9, 25-8 Oct. 20 at West.

    West finished 11-1 in the Waccamaw Conference, 19-2 in the regular season.

    “They came together in the end, when it really mattered,” West coach Leslie Reeves said. “They had fun out there. Everything was clicking. They were excited to end their senior year with that win. They wanted to put 2009 on the banner.”

  • West, South enter week tied for...

    The West Brunswick and South Brunswick volleyball teams entered the week 10-1 in the Waccamaw Conference and have one match left in the regular season.

    The two 3A teams played their final conference matches Oct. 20 (too late for this edition). If they finish the conference season tied for first, the two 3A had been scheduled to play a seeding match 6 p.m. Oct. 21 at Brunswick Community College. But South athletics director Chris Roehner said Monday that West will be the No. 1 seed and South the No. 2 seed for the playoffs and the match at BCC will not be played.

  • Gore, Johnson conference co-...

    Leslie Johnson of West Brunswick and Molly Gore of South Brunswick shot 49s and tied for first in the Waccamaw Conference championship golf tournament Oct. 12 at the St. James Plantation Founders Golf Course.

    Rain shortened the tournament to nine holes.

    South, with no seniors on its team, won the tournament and qualified for the regional Oct. 20 at Goldsboro Municipal Golf course. Johnson, a sophomore, also qualified.

  • Fall Brawl King Classic set for...

    The Yellowfin/OIFC.com Fall Brawl King Classic, based at the Ocean Isle Fishing Center, is this weekend.

    Competitors fish either Saturday or Sunday. Competitors declare their intended fish day on their registration form or have until 7 a.m. Saturday to call (910) 253-3474 and leave a message declaring the fish day. If a fish day is not declared, Saturday automatically will be counted as the fish day.

  • Recent cold temperatures are...

    The cold may not be at the top of your “favorite things” list, but as far as stimulating fall fishing, this is the exact weather we need to get the final push of fish that our area is due.

    The spots certainly will be running in full force by the weekend, as beach water temperatures cool to near 70 degrees. This also means the beach king mackerel fishing should be excellent. Typically just before the water reaches the 60s, the kings will bite good at Shallotte Inlet, so I’m looking for that to take place any day.

  • Many species of fish moving...

    Cooler weather has pushed fall fishing along quickly. Variable winds and weather conditions mean fishing luck changes daily, but it also means a lot of species are moving through our local waters.

    Speckled trout are active inside. Trout hit throughout the year, but middle to late fall is probably being the best time to fish for them. During autumn, specks can be targeted in a variety of ways. They like a moving bait and are schooled up very tightly.
