    SUPPLY—The Brunswick Community College volleyball team made a successful debut on its new homecourt Sept. 2 by beating Johnston Community College 25-17, 21-25, 25-16, 25-20 Sept. 2.

    Playing in the gym at the Dinah E. Gore Fitness & Aquatics Center, the Dolphins shook off two lackluster performances in the first two games and took early leads in the final two games en route to the victory.

  • 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.

  • Trojans avenge playoff loss...

    The West Brunswick High School boys’ soccer team avenged a 2008 season-ending playoff loss by beating White Oak 3-2 Friday.

    “We’ve had the date circled on our calendar for quite some time,” West soccer coach Tripp Smith said. “That game got scheduled in June, and the boys have talked about it all summer.”

    West, unranked and unnoticed, had stunned many by reaching the third round of the playoffs before losing at White Oak in the 3A playoffs.

  • Trojans' rally falls short...

    SOCASTEE, S.C.—Three passes from the Socastee 30 fell incomplete in the final 16 seconds and West Brunswick’s rally fell short, 21-17, in a season-opening football game, played over two days because of a storm. Lightning forced a suspension in the second quarter of the game Friday night.

    West had taken a 17-14 lead with 6:17 left in the fourth quarter on a 1-yard run by Maverick Pate and his two-point conversion. The 18-yard drive was set up when senior A.J. Daniels recovered a muffed punt at the 33. A penalty gave West possession at the 18.

  • Penalties, turnovers cost...

    WILMINGTON—Nine penalties for 97 yards and four turnovers were the reason for the South Brunswick Cougar 28-14 loss to the Ashley Screaming Eagles Friday night.

    A rain-soaked field and the end zone lights going out with fewer than 2 minutes remaining before halftime made for strange field conditions, which affected both teams.

    The Eagles prevailed on the strong throwing of senior quarterback Zach Finnegan, who threw for 206 yards and three touchdowns, two of those caught by wide receiver Jordan Brekke.

  • 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.
