  • West softball duo to extend...

     SHALLOTTE – West Brunswick High School graduate McKenzie Benton isn’t sure she would’ve played college softball had it not been for a special teammate.

    Benton, who helped lead the Trojans to an appearance in the eastern regional finals for the first in program history this spring, will continue her softball career at Southeastern Community College after officially signing a letter of intent to play at the Whiteville junior college last week in West Brunswick’s library.

  • Team Do Work/OIFC captures 2017...

     The 2017 Jolly Mon King Classic is officially in the books. Out of the 185 boats that competed, Jeff Beck and his crew of Team Do Work/OIFC came out on top with a 42.75-pound king mackerel.

    On Saturday, June 17, Beck and his crew set their sights on a spot about 15 miles offshore Myrtle Beach. Upon arrival, the team noticed that other boats in the area were catching fish, yet none of them seemed to be of any size. Still confident for a big bite, the crew deployed their trolling spread and started their day of fishing.
