  • Scorpions wins 6-0

    FAIRMONT—Coaches say defense wins games, and the North Brunswick High School Scorpions’ football team proved that Friday. Its defense was the key in a 6-0 victory, the first of the season for the Scorpions (1-1).

    Every time the Fairmont Tornadoes marched down the field toward an apparent score, the Scorpion defense made key stops.

    C.J. Bress, Chris Hamilton, Ivory Myers and Andrew Parker all made crucial hits on the defense to shut down the Tornadoes’ offense. De’Montez Lennon also had some good hits and stops in the second quarter.

  • Trojans' JV wins on late...

    Freshman Markel Jones scored from the Socastee (S.C.) line 18 with 2 minutes, 25 seconds left as the West Brunswick junior varsity football team beat the Braves 19-14 Aug. 27.

    In the first game played inside revamped M.H. Rourk Stadium, the teams traded touchdowns until late in the fourth quarter, when Jones took a handoff from quarterback Cameron Smith and scampered up the middle for the game-winning touchdown.

  • Lady Trojans lose nonconference...

    The West Brunswick High School girls’ tennis team played two nonconference duals last week, losing 7-0 to North Myrtle Beach and 8-1 to Ashley.

    “We had a great win at No. 1 doubles at Ashley with Garbrial Sanders and Jordan Sanchez,” West coach Scott Mehalick said. “And everybody is playing very well.

    “I am very pleased with each of the girls’ performances, and we are starting to play points better, which will lead to winning more games and then matches.

  • McCumbee finishes seventh in...

    In a return to Crew Chief Bobby Dotter’s hometown, Chad McCumbee and the SS Green Light Racing team finished seventh in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race Friday at Chicagoland Speedway.

    This was the team’s fifth-top 10 finish of the season. McCumbee earned $14,205. He is 19th in points and has won $193,529 this season.

  • Campbell, Fulford battle to the...

    The Mini-Stock race was the race of the night Saturday at Myrtle Beach Speedway, as Ronnie Campbell and Adam Fulford battled to the finish. Campbell won by a foot, getting his fifth win and the points lead with only one more race left in the 2009 season.

    The Limited Late Models also put on quite a show, as the race featured a lot of side-by- side racing, with four lead changes taking place in the 25-lap feature.

    Kevin Barnhill got his second win of the year after holding off defending champion Randall Roberts and fighting side-by-side for 17 straight laps.

  • Lady Trojans improve to 6-0

    The West Brunswick High School volleyball team will enter the conference season Thursday with a 6-0 record.

    The Lady Trojans remained perfect by beating North Myrtle Beach 25-15, 25-21, 25-23 Monday. The match was the first of the season for the Chiefs. West plays host to South Brunswick on Thursday.

    For West, Kenzie McDuffie scored nine points and had 25 assists. Keri Nolan scored nine points and had seven aces and nine kills. Mattie Tippett scored seven points. Sheena Suttlemyre and Miriah Milliken each scored five points. Carly White had 11 kills.

  • Good time to put flounder...

    Flounder fishing really picked up in late August, and the tasty flatfish are the hottest bite out there right now. There are plenty of stocky redfish biting, and Spanish mackerel are hitting along the shore in the early mornings, but it is the flounder that have local anglers the most excited. Fishing for flounder should continue to be strong right through the fall.

  • Fall fishing looms as September...

    I have dusted off my blue jeans and unboxed my sweatshirts. I have my reels spooled and hooks sharp. The time is near for fall fishing to begin.

    The last couple of weeks the offshore fishing has not been incredible. We have been catching plenty of Spanish mackerel, amberjack and barracuda, but when it comes to the king mackerel and grouper, the fishing has just been plain tough. Much of this due to an anomaly known as a thermocline that formed about three weeks ago.

  • Roy Pace Golf Links: A good idea...

    PGA Golf Professional Roy Pace came to Brunswick County a few weeks ago for the dedication of the Roy Pace Wee Links Course at Cinghiale Creek, home of The First Tee of Brunswick County.

    Before the opening ceremonies, I had a chance to sit down and talk with Roy in the Learning Center. I came away in awe.

    This is a good guy with a long history as a PGA Tour Player, a club pro, award-winning teacher, writer, president of a chapter of The First Tee in Texas, and now the designer of Wee Links Golf, a concept I believe will bring golf into mainstream U.S.A.
