  • West wins Touchstone Energy...

    West Brunswick rallied from a 4-0 deficit to beat Southern Alamance 7-6 in a thrilling championship game of the Touchstone Energy Diamond Beach Invitational April 15 at West.

    Jay Gause, who pitched the final four and one-third innings, ended the game with a strikeout when the tying run was on third base.

    Three Trojans—Logan Tripp, Pat Kamfolt and Josh Powell—made the all-tournament team. (Hunter Allen, playing on the junior varsity, also was an all-tournament selection). West is now 14-3.

  • Victor Central ousts West...

    Victor Central High School defeated West Brunswick High School 8-1 for the softball championship in the Touchstone Energy Beach Diamond Invitational April 15.

    A slight consolation is that Victor, southeast of Rochester, was the second-best team last year in the state of New York.

    Kacie Strong, a converted right fielder, pitched a complete game, allowing four hits striking out 10.

  • North finishes third in tourney

    North Brunswick scored three runs in the top of the seventh and then held off a bases-loaded Southern Wayne rally to beat the Saints 8-6 and finish third in the Touchstone Energy Beach Diamond Invitational.

  • West beats South, avenges defeat

    On her birthday, Emily Gore hit a home run as the Lady Trojans avenged their only season defeat by beating South 6-2 April 14 in the Touchstone Energy Beach Diamond Invitational.

    Carly White gave up four hits, and three of them were to Ashley Edge, who drove in both of South’s runs.

    White struck out eight and hit two batters in pitching all seven innings.

  • Lady Cougars finish fourth in...

    Smithfield scored three runs in the top half of the first inning and went on to defeat the Lady Cougars in their final game at the Touchstone Energy Beach Diamond Invitational April 15.

    Meagan Spivey, the freshman who had pitched in relief the day before, was asked to take the mound again for the Lady Cougars. Although she only allowed one hit in that inning, a wild pitch and an error allowed the team from Smithfield (about an hour north from here just off I-95) to score the only three runs of the game. Spivey did strike out one batter.

  • BCC builds big lead, beats...

    An eight-run fifth inning propelled the Brunswick Community College baseball team to a 17-9 victory in eight innings Sunday afternoon over Stanly Community College.

    BCC scored three runs in the eighth inning for an eight-run lead, and by conference rule that margin ended the game, played at West Brunswick High School.

    BCC led 11-3 after five innings, but SCC used four walks and two errors in the sixth to score six runs and cut the lead to 11-9. That displeased BCC coach Robbie Allen.

  • Streetballer game Saturday at...

    While walking through downtown Shallotte a few months ago, Lawrence Gadsden noticed some West Brunswick High School wrestlers trying to raise funds for the Trojan program.

    “They were on Main Street,” he said, “and I asked them what they were doing. They were trying to (raise) their own revenues. Which I thought was great. But we can help them. I offered to help.”

  • Coastal Carolina's inshore...

    The inshore waters of Brunswick County are filled with food and game fish that offer local recreational anglers a wide variety of choices and opportunity. Whether you like casting from the decks of a pier, wading into the ocean surf or taking a boat ride to your fishing hole, there is something for anglers of every age and skill level.

  • Spring fishing beginning to take...

    We have finally had a nice weekend of weather. Whether you went fishing or mowed the grass, it was one of the finest weather weekends I can remember. And the good news is the fish recognized they were supposed to show up as well.

  • Brunswick County golf: Fabulous...

    Brunswick County is often called the “Upper End of the Grand Strand.” Many of our golf courses are listed as part of the Myrtle Beach golf experience in advertisements and on Web sites.

    That’s great. We’re happy to be part of “Golf Capital of the World,” but we have so many courses that we honestly could stand alone as a golf destination.
