  • 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.

  • Victory completes memorable week...

    RED SPRINGS—The South Brunswick Cougars football team presented coach Roman Kelley a gift Friday night by routing Red Springs 35-0.

    The occasion for the gift was the previous Friday night—a bye week—when son Camden was born.

    “What a great week,” Kelley said. “I’ll never forget it.

    “I’m so lucky to have a wonderful wife. She had our son on our off week. Amazing. I have a great family, great team and coaches. I’m so blessed.”

  • North's Scorpions down...

    LEJEUNE—The North Brunswick High School football team visited the Lejune Devil Pups Friday night trying to end a two-game losing streak and a fourth loss this season.

    To do that, the Scorpions wanted to establish the run—and that’s just what they did, as three players rushed for more than 100 yards in North’s 40-6 victory.

    D. J. Graham gained 153 yards and scored three touchdowns. Jirese Thomas gained 176 yards and scored three touchdowns. Scatback Jamelle Batts gained 111 yards and had some long kickoff and punt returns.

  • West, South set for football...

    The rematch 7:30 p.m. Friday between the West Brunswick (3-1) and South Brunswick (2-2) high school football teams comes with both teams playing their best football of the season. And it comes at the start of the Waccamaw Conference season.

    West athletics director John Floyd couldn’t have planned a better situation in what he hopes is the start of an annual home-and-away series.

  • Turnovers costly; Trojans drop...

    The West Brunswick junior varsity football team turned the ball over seven times Thursday night at M.H. Rourk Stadium and fell 20-0 to the visiting Ashley Screaming Eagles.

    The Trojans (2-2) lost five fumbles, threw two interceptions and turned the ball over on downs two times in a 20-0 defeat as they struggled to muster anything offensively all night against an active Ashley defense.

  • West's 10th win is Reeves...

    The West Brunswick volleyball team beat Whiteville 3-0 in a Waccamaw Conference match Sept. 15, giving West coach Leslie Reeves the 100th victory of her coaching career at West.

    West won the match at Whiteville 25-12, 25-11, 25-14.

    Kenzie McDuffie had 27 assists. She also had scored 12 points and had five kills. Miriah Milliken scored a season-high 17 points and had eight aces.

    Carly White had 11 kills and five blocks. Keri Nolan had 12 kills and scored five points. Breana Gause had seven kills and seven blocks. Sheena Suttlemyre scored seven points.

  • South tennis team remains...

    The South Brunswick girls’ tennis team stayed perfect by beating the Cape Fear B team 6-3 in a nonconference dual Sept. 15.

    The Cougars won four singles matches: At No. 1, Summer Phillips beat Emma Offerman 6-2, 6-0. At No. 2, Tori Hall beat Tori Soltis. At No. 4, Sarah Brock beat Mary Stewart 6-0, 6-3. At No. 6, Tiffany Capps beat Lilly Hawfield 6-3, 6-1.

  • Late East Bladen goal ties West...

    East Bladen scored with nine minutes left to tie the score and held off a flurry of West Brunswick shots in the final minutes of overtime in a 1-1 tie Sept. 16 at M.H. Rourk Stadium.

    West, 2-0-1 in the Waccamaw Conference, took a 1-0 lead 18 minutes into the second half on a goal set up by Corey Bell. In the left side of the field, he passed to Chip Mendoza. He dribbled the ball to the center of the box and then hit low shot into the goal.

  • Now is the right time to fish...

    Local anglers have been dodging rain showers and getting in some decent fishing.

    Temperatures have remained steady enough that real fall fishing hasn’t kicked into gear yet, although the speckled trout don’t seem to know to wait and have been hitting well. Red drum and flounder are making up the bulk of the other inshore catches as folks wait for the spot to start running.

  • Cancer Rally at Ocean Ridge...

    Breast cancer impacts many people in our society. I lost a dear friend to breast cancer many years ago.

    June Larson was a graduate of the Missouri School of Journalism; I was a graduate of the Newhouse School of Communications at Syracuse. We were both stay-at-home moms and became friends through our church, where we were both active in Sunday School and youth programs.

    When all of our children were in school full time, June and I began our long-delayed writing careers. We joined forces and sent out proposals on articles we wanted to write.
