  • 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.

  • The Roy Pace Wee Links and...

    The First Tee of Brunswick County home course is The Golf Park at Cinghiale Creek near Shallotte. On Saturday, Cinghiale Creek officially opened a new 2-acre outdoor practice area to complement its 18-hole golf course for the youth. It is called the Roy Pace Wee Links and Driving Range.

    A large crowd of chapter volunteers, guests, parents, and youth were on hand to see the ribbon-cutting ceremony. The guest of honor, and the namesake for the new course and range, was Roy Pace from Longview, Texas. He is the president and PGA golf instructor of The First Tee of the Piney Woods.

    Led by Keri Nolan’s 29 assists and 11 kills and by Kenzie McDuffie’s 23 points and six acces, West Brunswick swept New Hanover 25-19, 25-9, 25-23 in a nonconference volleyball match Aug. 26.

    The victory improved the Lady Trojans’ record to 4-0.

    Nolan and McDuffie each had a team-high four digs in the victory, one in which West played one of its best games of the early season.

  • Trojan soccer team wins home...

    Playing its second soccer game in two nights, West Brunswick’s defense and fitness were tested by Dixon, but the Trojans prevailed 2-1.

    A sliding Chip Mendoza scored off a ball by Corey Bell 40 seconds into the game Aug. 19, and early in the second half Bell scored the game-winning goal off a corner kick from Jesse Mayo.

    For West coach Tripp Smith, the game showed how resilient the Trojans can be—they lost the night before 6-1 to Laney.

  • North's rally falls short...

    MOREHEAD CITY—Friday night lights. Start of the football season. That means that fall is just around the corner. The North Brunswick Scorpions High School football season started this past Friday night, with a trek to Morehead City to meet the West Carteret Patriots.

    It didn’t fare well for the Scorpions; they lost 21-18.

    On the second play of the game, West Carteret broke out with a 61-yard gain. With 10:21 left in the first quarter, the Patriots scored making it 7-0. It was your typical first-game jitters for both teams, game filled with penalties.

  • McCumbee has disappointing...

    Chad McCumbee drove a strong race in the No. 07 tiwi/Aerus Chevrolet in the O’Reilly 200 Aug. 19 at Bristol Motor Speedway but a broken oil line forced the SS Green Light Racing team to move the truck behind the wall and ultimately ended their night 28 laps from the finish in 27th.

    McCumbee started from 19th and moved into the top 15 after four laps around the 0.533 mile-track. McCumbee defended the 14th position until the first caution of the night waved on lap 35 and the tiwi/Aerus Chevrolet made its first trip down pit road.
