  • Slow play: Nightmare in the pines

    Slow play is everyone’s nightmare.

    I’ve written about it before and I will continue to write about it annually because, first of all, it bugs me and, secondly, folks ask me to write about it. They want to hang my slow-play column in the locker room of their club. They want their slow-playing friends to get the hint… hint… HINT!

  • West golfers finish eighth in...

    PINETOPS—The West Brunswick High School golf team finished eighth out of 11 teams in the Class 3-A East Regional on Monday at Maccripine Country Club.

    Playing a 6,200-yard, par-71 course on a windy day with tight pin placements made the state-qualifying tournament a challenge for all. (One foursome a West player was in had to stop play for 30 minutes because of a thunderstorm.)

    Led by medalist Spencer Whitt (70), Fike was the runaway winner (293). Five of Fike’s players shot in the 70s. Hunt second (324) and Northern Nash third (325).

  • Zacek’s 10 strikeouts...

    Talking to his dad earlier in the day, North Brunswick freshman David Zacek said he would get 10 strikeouts May 1 against Pender.

    Zacek was correct in his prediction. But what he did not know was he would strike out 10 in just four innings as the Scorpions beat Pender 18-0.

    More significant for North is that the victory kept the Scorpions unbeaten in the Waccamaw Conference heading into the final week of the season. North’s final conference game is Friday at home against South Columbus.
