  • Feeling especially thankful...

     Last Thursday was not one of the better days of my life.

    I left the office Thursday afternoon and was heading down to South Carolina to cover West Brunswick’s first baseball game of the season against Carolina Forest (S.C.). I had to go home first to take my dog out so he wouldn’t be up in the house from 10 a.m. (when I had left that morning) until 9 p.m. when I returned home after the game.

  • Trojans split four games in...

     After a trip to the fourth-round of the state playoffs a year ago, there are great expectations for West Brunswick’s varsity baseball team in 2018.

    The Trojans were able to shake off the offseason hype and play their first four games of the campaign last weekend at Carolina Forest High School in South Carolina as part of the Carolina Border Battle.

    After dropping its first two games of the season, West Brunswick rallied to even its record at 2-2 with a pair of wins Saturday, March 4.

  • Caraway earns Mideastern...

     West Brunswick head wrestling coach Jimmy Caraway reached the 300-win milestone when his squad knocked off perennial power in early January.

    Caraway guided several Trojan wrestlers to individual conference and regional titles and the team advanced to the 3A East Region finals before falling to Orange in the state semifinals.

    West wrestlers Jacary Bethel and Lincoln Smith placed at the state championships in Greensboro last month.

  • Daniels, Bland cap West...

     Rasheed Daniels entered his senior season on West Brunswick’s basketball squad with limited experience at the varsity level.

    The senior guard worked tirelessly in the offseason to improve his game and the work paid dividends as Daniels finished off his Trojan career as a second-team Mideastern Conference all-league performer, the league announced in a news release issued March 4.

  • PHOTOS: West Brunswick prepares...

     West Brunswick scrimmaged Myrtle Beach High School (S.C.) last weekend in preparation for the 2018 season, which begins Friday, March 2, at Carolina Forest High School (S.C.) in a weekend round-robin tournament. 

  • Hutchinson’s 19 points lead...

     The Brunswick Community College men’s basketball team opened the season with 10 wins in its first 11 games.

    Since that time, not much has gone right for head coach Walter Shaw’s club.

    The Dolphins suffered an eight-game losing streak that spanned from the end of December through the last week of January and BCC has only one win in conference play.

  • PHOTOS: West Brunswick High...

     West Brunswick competed in last weekend's Marine Chevy Quick Stick Lacrosse Invitational in Jacksonville.

  • West Brunswick Booster Club...

     Early last month, I received a text message from West Brunswick High School Athletic Director Jimmy Fletcher.

    “It’s that time of year again,” Fletcher wrote in the text.

    Yes, indeed.

    Fletcher and other West Brunswick High School officials have scheduled the annual Booster Club raffle drawing and dinner for Saturday, March 10, inside the school’s cafeteria beginning at 6 p.m.

    I encourage all of our Beacon readers to carve out a free night next Saturday to purchase a $100 ticket.
