  • West Brunswick clinches county...

    BOILING SPRING LAKES—The West Brunswick High School girls soccer team clinched its first county championship by beating South Brunswick 3-2 Monday.

    The victory gave West a 3-0 record against county teams, with just one more game left on Monday against North Brunswick.

    West played without starting freshman midfielder Julianna Zio, who was a key player in West’s first victory over the Cougars. (She was sick.)

  • Fulfords finish 1-2 in Mini-...

    Racing Saturday at Myrtle Beach Speedway saw the return of the Super Trucks for the second time in three weeks and the third week of racing for the Limited Late Models, Street Stocks and Mini-Stocks.

    The 15-lap Street Stock race was a three-car battle among Tommy Poole, Davey Hatchell and Dean Cumbee. Cumbee ended up passing two-time defending champion Poole with two laps to go to take his first victory of the 2009 season.

    In the 25-lap limited Late Model feature, Michael Elliot led start to finish virtually untested, finishing ahead of Randall Roberts.

  • An excellent start to the spring...

    Fishing has been good inshore depending upon the weather. Storms combined with an often-howling wind have kept anglers inside at times, but when they have gotten out they have caught fish. There is good news from all areas—the piers, the surf and the backwaters.

    The biggest news in the early pier fishing has been the good catches of sea mullet. These tasty panfish, also known as whiting, have been coming over the rails in sporadic runs and in good size. Sea mullet hit cut shrimp and other baits fished on the bottom.

  • Despite windy conditions, Hannah...

    On April 14, with winds blowing 20-35 mph, David Hannah shot a bogey-free round of 68 at the Crow Creek Golf Club and helped lead his team to victory. Three-man team: 1. David Hannah, Rich Murphy and Jerry Zimmerman, +19; 2. Andy McCorison, Paul Murray and Ray Hickey, +15.

    Individual best net quota points within each flight: A, David Hannah (+12); B, Paul Murray (+6); C, Jerry Zimmerman and Ray Hickey (+6).

    TWICE HOLING OUT

  • BCC beats Stanly 17-9

    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.

  • Titles at stake for Lady Trojans...

    The Touchstone Energy Beach Diamond Invitational marked the ending of one season and the start of another for the West Brunswick High School baseball and softball teams.

  • 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.
