  • When it comes to winter fishing...

    Another relatively mild winter may be upon us, and on warmer days people get the urge to fish.

    Yes, there are fish out there. In fact, if you like quiet angling with a bit of a challenge but a potentially big upside, this time of the year is for you.

    Winter fishing is often a feast or famine deal. One great example is the puppy drum.

  • Brunswick Community College turf...

    I’ve been hearing good things about the turfgrass management program at Brunswick Community College.

    So last Friday, I drove to Supply and spent the morning with Dean Bennett, director of the horticulture and turfgrass management program, and Jace Myers, an instructor in the program.

    These are two nifty young men who are enthusiastic about both the expansion of Brunswick Community College and their role in growing the horticulture and turfgrass program there.

    Linda VanHorn and Nance Stamboni, the Flight C winners, scored a 2-up win against Flight A champs Pat Brooks and Frankie Neal in final of the Ocean Ridge Ladies President’s Cup tournament.

    The match-play event was played over a 24-week period.

    In the semifinals, VanHorn and Stamboni defeated Flight B winners Grace Loyack and Ginny Ward while Brooks and Neal beat Flight D winners Pam Bank and Gwen Fitzgerald.

  • BCC rallies past Rockingham

    SHALLOTTE—As one Rockingham Community College coach was heard muttering upon leaving the West Brunswick High School gym Saturday evening, “You can’t win games if you play only 20 minutes.”

    The Brunswick Community College Dolphins proved that wrong, storming from 20 points down to take a 103-79 victory in a Carolinas Junior College Conference game.

    The visiting Eagles (0-3 conference, 6-5 overall) led 41-21 with 6:24 to play in the first half. The Dolphins (3-1 conference, 13-2 overall) cut the margin to 12 points, 52-40, at the intermission.

  • BCC Lady Dolphins now down to...

    SHALLOTTE—Brunswick Community College women’s basketball coach Kenneth White didn’t have to look too far down his bench Saturday in the Carolinas Junior College Conference game with Louisburg College at the West Brunswick High School gym.

    He only had one reserve and assistant coach Keisha Lighty on the bench with him.

    The defending conference champion Lady Hurricanes romped to a 101-40 victory to improve to 12-1 overall and 6-0 in the league. BCC fell to 2-9 overall and is winless in eight conference games.
