  • Davis aims to improve North...

     When Bryan Davis accepted his first head coaching position at Southwest Guilford in High Point several years ago, he inherited North Carolina’s longest active high school football losing streak.

    Playing against the likes of Dudley, Parkland, Glenn, Northeast Guilford and Andrews, Davis had his work cut out for him in a highly competitive region in The Tar Heel State.

    Davis faces a similar task at North Brunswick after accepting the head coaching position for the Scorpions in March.

     North Brunswick head baseball coach Dustin Medlin finished his school’s baseball season in early May.

    After a disappointing season for the Scorpions on the diamond, Medlin had the opportunity to coach some of the best players in southeastern North Carolina during the Powerade State Games High School Baseball Showcase last week in Greensboro.

    Medlin, a North Brunswick alum and former county player of the year, assisted former Topsail head coach Aaron Rimer on the Region 2 team that featured a trio of Brunswick County players.

     Leland National earned a clean sweep in last week’s District 5 Dixie Youth tournaments in the coach pitch, Minors (AAA) and Majors divisions.

    Multiple rain and lightning delays interrupted play June 25-26, but that couldn’t stop a trio of Leland National teams from capturing District 5 championships in last week’s tournament play at Leland Town Park.

  • No floundering around at annual...

     Once again, the Sudan Daredevils put on quite a show.

    You may notice the name “Sudan Daredevils” and ask yourself, “Are those the men that ride the go-carts over the Tahoe and ramp in the Christmas parade?”

    You’d be exactly right.

    This is also the same group that organizes and hosts an annual flounder fishing tournament at Shallotte Point in early June.

    As usual, the South Brunswick Islands Shrine Club and the Daredevils subgroup ran a fantastic event.

     Jieem Bullock capped a successful sophomore season in track and field with a pair of top-six finishes at last month’s 3A track and field state championship meet at North Carolina A&T University in Greensboro.

    Bullock sprinted and hurdled his way to a third-place standing in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 14.64, while also finishing with a sixth-place ledger in the high jump event by clearing the 6-02.00 mark.

    “I’m retiring from wrestling coaching,” he said. “I’m not retiring from my teaching position and not retiring totally from coaching.”

    Caraway informed West Brunswick athletic director Jimmy Fletcher of his intention to resign as the head wrestling coach May 29.
