  • Parker leads West, Trojans sweep...

     WILMINGTON – West Brunswick had won just five of its previous 23 games against Hoggard in varsity boys’ basketball prior to this season.

    The Trojans have now swept the regular season series against the Vikings for the first time in program history following a 46-39 win Tuesday, Feb. 6, inside Sheila Boles Gym in Wilmington.

    West Brunswick (12-11, 5-8) built a 12-point halftime lead, survived a Vikings’ third-quarter rally and made enough free throws late to knock off Hoggard for the second time this season.

  • Lincoln Smith, Bethel earn...

     SHALLOTTE – The wait was well worth it for West Brunswick’s Lincoln Smith.

    The senior 160-pounder missed all of the 2016-17 campaign after three knee surgeries and he couldn’t wait to return to the mat for his senior campaign.

  • Trojan swimmers complete season...

     Caroline Ruck just completed one of the greatest single seasons in West Brunswick’s swimming program’s history.

    And she’s just a freshman.

    Ruck, who captured the NCHSAA 3A East Region title in the women’s 200-yard individual medley two weeks ago, capped her phenomenal freshman campaign with a solid performance at the Feb. 9 state championship meet at the Triangle Aquatic Center in Cary.

  • BCC opens baseball season with...

     Brunswick Community College walked off its home field Sunday afternoon with a 3-0 record after sweeping East Carolina University’s club team in a weekend series in Supply.

    The Dolphins took two games from the Pirates during a Saturday, Feb. 10, doubleheader before a thrilling 10-8 walk-off win over the visitors Sunday, Feb. 11.

    After building a seemingly comfortable 7-2 lead after four innings in Sunday afternoon’s finale, ECU’s club team raced ahead with a six-run fifth-inning.

  • All is right with the world when...

     I was still in the bed last Tuesday morning when my phone rang. I saw it was my middle brother, Brett, on the other end, so I picked it up and before I could even say, “Hello,” he asked me if I wanted to go to the Carolina (North Carolina, the real Carolina) versus Duke game on Thursday, Feb. 8, in the Dean E. Smith Center in Chapel Hill.

    “Sure, I’d love to go,” I replied. “I’m certain I can’t afford it.”

    “Alright,” Brett said. “Just wanted to ask.”

  • Treffinger: February fishing...

    Believe it or not, February is finally here. Amidst the snow, sleet, high winds and the abnormal 65-degree sunny day, opportunities to go fishing offshore have been slim to none the past few weeks. Whether you’re a hardcore backwater angler or a novice offshore angler, the weather has not been conducive to spend the day fishing. However, there has been a handful of courageous fishermen who have bundled up and ventured offshore and have done surprisingly well.
