     SHALLOTTE --- West Brunswick has one of the best baseball programs in eastern North Carolina. Former head coach Mike Alderson built the Trojans into one of the state’s top-notch programs during an illustrious 26-year career as the team’s skipper.

     Over the Memorial Day weekend, the offshore action has gone from one extreme to another. Last week (May 22-26) we were experiencing a typical, late spring offshore pattern as fishermen were having success with both bottom fishing and top water action in almost any depth range. From mahi-mahi near the gulf stream to Spanish Mackerel along the beachfront, the fishing remained consistent.

     On the heels of the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association conference tournament championship and a berth in the Division II NCAA Atlantic Regionals, Chowan University is adding more talent to its softball roster.

     Michael Jordan kept it simple when he announced his return to the Chicago Bulls in March 1995 after taking two years off to pursue a professional baseball career.

    “I’m back,” His Airness said.

    LeBron James bolted the Cleveland Cavaliers for a highly successful tenure with the superteam Miami Heat in what became known as “The Decision,” a nationally-televised, one-hour program in which James proclaimed he was “taking his talents to South Beach.”

  • Trojans fall in regional finals

     HILLSBOROUGH — Senior catcher Haley Long wiped the tears from her face.
