  • Post 68 beats Whiteville for...

    LELAND—Randall Rabon’s home run off the scoreboard highlighted Leland Post 68’s 9-7 victory over Whiteville June 4 in an American Legion baseball game at North Brunswick High School.

    The game was the home opener for Post 68 and also was Post’s first victory of the season after two defeats.

    Ethan Cox was the winning pitcher, giving up nine hits and five runs in five innings. He walked one and struck out four. Post 68 made three errors in the first five innings and five for the nine-inning game.

  • Kazmierczak ready to clear next...

    Perhaps it was a hug that clinched Jenna Kazmierczak’s decision to attend Coastal Carolina University on a track scholarship, the same hug she got from parents Christine and Mike after she signed a letter of intent May 27 at South Brunswick High School.

    “The Coastal coaches were actually really nice people,” said Christine, herself a track coach at South who knows how harsh coaches can be sometimes. “They hugged us to say, ‘Welcome to the family, and we’re glad you are here.’”

  • Plans being designed for BCC...

    Plans for the Brunswick Community College baseball stadium are taking shape, and it is hoped within the next few years the Dolphins will have a home park.

    “We’re moving forward,” BCC baseball coach and athletics director Robbie Allen said Saturday, “but we’re moving forward slowly.”

    Allen said an architect “has been given the OK” to start designing. But it is unlikely a field will be in place next season “because we still have to raise the money to build it.”

    Allen estimated the cost to be $200,000.

  • Junior Legion Trojans lose twice...

    The West Trojans’ Junior American Legion baseball team opened its season Saturday and lost 5-3 and 7-5 in a doubleheader with Cary. The Trojans were held to seven hits in the two seven-inning games played in about five hours.

  • West's 20-win season ends...

    GOLDSBORO—After a celebratory huddle with his team, Eastern Wayne High School baseball coach Jabo Fulghum was complimentary of the West Brunswick team his Warriors had just beaten.

    “They got a great club,” he said. “We beat a great team tonight. We were very fortunate to win.”

  • BCC volleyball team signs Murray...

    The Brunswick Community College volleyball team has signed Branchville (S.C.) High School senior KaAnn Murray to be a setter for next season as the Dolphins defend their Region 10 Conference and conference tournament championships.

  • Thirteen South athletes to...

    Jenna Kazmierczak’s singing a letter of intent May 27 to attend Coastal Carolina on a track scholarship was the latest in a banner season of South Brunswick athletes making commitments to college.

    Seven have signed letters of intent. Six more intend to play sports in college.

    “I cannot remember South Brunswick High having this many athletes going on to the next level in one year,” said South athletics director Chris Roehner, who has been at South 12 years.

  • West football coaches honor...

    The West Brunswick High School football team had its banquet Monday night at West, and five players received individual awards.

    Jake Boudreau received the Coaches Award. Assistant coach Yogi Hickman said the award, which has been handed out since at least 1994, goes not to the most talented or skillful player but to one who is dependable, someone “you know is going to do all the little things that nobody wants to do.

  • With new sponsor, McCumbee...

    Two weeks ago, Chad McCumbee didn’t think he would be racing at Dover International Speedway. The SS Green Light team did not have sponsorship for the AAA Insurance 200. But NASCAR technology provider inthinc and its tiwi brand stepped up to help the No. 07 team, and in their first race together, McCumbee drove to a seventh-place finish. He won $16,505. This season, he has earned $110,809.

  • Stable weather moves king...

    Stable weather has finally brought the king mackerel back to their normal summer stomping grounds, and this time, hopefully, for quite a while. What great weather we have had this past weekend and this week. The winds have been light and it’s been hot, but I was kind of ready for a little of the heat. It seems like forever that we have had topsy-turvy weather; one week hot, the next cold with lots of wind. Let’s hope that we can maintain the stability and the fish can feel as comfortable as possible, just before we swoop in and catch them.
