Coastal’s Soderberg repeats as All-East Region selection

For the second year in a row, Coastal Carolina junior Sebastian Soderberg has been named to the Division I PING All-East Region, as selected by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA).

Panthers linebackers look to turn weakness into strength

It’s still a little early to characterize the Carolina Panthers’ linebacker situation as an embarrassment of riches. Heck, because of injuries to two projected starters, the Panthers’ linebacker corps was an embarrassment, period, at times in 2011. But coach Ron Rivera and coordinator Sean McDermott seem to be pleased with the potential for the unit to dramatically improve over 2011.... 

St. James’ DeShields opts to play at College of Charleston

St. James High left-handed pitcher Anders DeShields has verbally committed to the College of Charleston on Sunday, according to Sharks coach Robbie Centracchio.

NCAA Regional is Coastal’s time to shine, not whine

I must say, I am a little surprised by the reaction of Coastal Carolina fans to the Chanticleers’ NCAA Baseball Regional draw. I’ve heard complaints about the all-Palmetto State pool being too difficult for the Chants’ credentials and belly-aching about having to play the toughest two teams in the nation and neighborhood. Chicken feathers, I say. instead of an unclimbable mountain,... 

CCU has past playoff woes against Palmetto State foes

The Coastal Carolina baseball team’s “Road to Omaha” is a literal one, geographically speaking – just down Interstate 20 to Columbia. It’s also proven to be a hazardous one. The Chanticleers will meet Upstate power Clemson in the first round of the NCAA Regional. They also have to get through top-seeded host South Carolina, which has made consecutive successful round trips...

MB’s Skole named Carolina League Player of the Week

Reaching base in 10 consecutive plate appearances is bound to turn some heads, and that’s exactly what’s happened for Pelicans outfielder Jake Skole. The 20-year-old from Georgia was named Carolina League Player of the Week, announced Monday by Minor League Baseball. Skole hit .500 last week, going 8-16 in six games with two homeruns, four runs scored five RBI, four walks and a pair of... 

Strand soccer star Arrington to join Clemson Hall of Fame

Ten former Clemson athletes and coaches, including Pawleys Island soccer star Deliah Arrington, will be inducted into the school’s Sports Hall of Fame this fall. Arrington, who played for the boys team at Waccamaw High in the late 1990s, became the Lady Tigers’ all-time leading scorer during her time at Clemson.
