  • Tournament of Champions—stronger...

    It all began back in 2002 when I first started writing this column. I’d been playing golf for years and writing for magazines and newspapers for years. That year, my two favorite things merged and suddenly I was a golf columnist for the Brunswick Beacon.  

  • It’s time to go: ‘Gentlemen,...

    Those are the time-appropriate words spoken by my Grandpa Mac. He grew up in the Mississippi woods, and I’m quite sure there was some form of sanctioned catfish racing.  And you may well imagine, you had better be ready when standing in the starting blocks of a catfish race.

  • After absence, speckled trout...

    Fall fishing is here, and that means for Brunswick County anglers it is time to gather bait and head to the water. The change in the weather became apparent last weekend when the first real cold front moved through and fall officially arrives tomorrow.
    Reports are good for redfish and flounder, and there have been some spot runs on our local piers. Most encouraging, some nice speckled trout have been caught after a long summer when they were mostly absent.

    Chad McCumbee didn’t get what he wanted Saturday at the Salem Speedway, but he got what his ModSpace team needed.
    A ninth-place finish in the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers Fall Classic by Federated Car Care was enough to clinch the Bill France Four Crown title for McCumbee and Andy Belmont Racing.

    MOUNT OLIVE COLLEGE

    Mount Olive College sophomore Carly White (Ash, N.C./West Brunswick HS) came up big for the Trojans last week, helping the squad open Conference Carolinas play with a win over St. Andrews.

    White delivered a match-high 10 kills for Mount Olive, including seven in the first set. Fellow sophomore Keri Nolan (Calabash, N.C./West Brunswick HS) added three kills during a 6-0 run that helped ice the final set.

  • Trojans shut out West Bladen 3-0

     

    The West Brunswick High School boys’ soccer team improved to 3-0 in the conference by beating West Bladen 3-0 Monday night. Senior midfielder Nick Carozza had an assist and scored twice.

    West controlled play for most of the first half, but its best shot on goal came 15 minutes after the start. Carozza passed to sophomore midfielder Luis Espinoza, who lined a shot that hit the bottom of the right post and bounced out of bounds.
