     Senior pitcher Gavin Lane has been pleased with the run support he has received in his last few starts.

The win keeps West in sole possession of first place in the Waccamaw Conference, two games ahead of North. Lane gave up a run in the top of the first but gained confidence watching his team string together timely hits in the Trojans’ first at-bat.

  • From the gulag to the golf...

    Golf is played by the most amazing people. I’ve met paraplegic golfers, blind golfers, one-armed golfers, and just plain folks who have battled debilitating disease and injury to get back on the course.  
    Stanley Opalka, of Sunset Beach, traveled a long, hard road to the quiet beauty of the Carolina coast.  
    His story begins in Poland, in the fall of 1939, when his native country was invaded by the Nazis from the west and the Soviets from the east.

    The weather continues to warm, but spring inshore fishing has suddenly cooled. After a strong preseason redfish bite, the local angling has hit a surprising lull, possibly the result of some combinations of wind and tide and possibly just because it’s going to be a slow-starting fishing season.
