Region 6-4A: Doty’s 7 TDs lift MB; Foxes rock Chiefs

What was expected to be No. 4-ranked Myrtle Beach’s toughest test of the season looked a lot like the other lopsided affairs for the undefeated Seahawks (6-0 overall, 3-0 Region 6-4A). Myrtle Beach junior quarterback Luke Doty threw seven touchdown passes – three apiece to Da’Ron Finkley and Marcus Grissett – to lead the Seahawks to a 49-7 victory over visiting Wilson on... 

Panthers suffer first defeat in showdown with Knights

The Carolina Forest offense watched nearly helplessly as Ailym Ford did what he’s done to so many others in the past. The West Florence tailback put on a performance for the ages in the second half Friday night at Florence’s Memorial Stadium and led his Knights squad to not only a 51-44 victory, but also into the driver’s seat for the Region VI-5A championship and a shot at homefield advantage... 

Region 6-5A: Tigers topple Sharks; Bruins blast Braves

Chiefs top Seahawks, cap clean sweep to region title

The North Myrtle Beach High volleyball team completed a rare clean sweep through Region 6-4A on Thursday night as the Lady Chiefs defeated rival Myrtle Beach 3-0 to celebrate the feat on their home floor. North Myrtle Beach recorded its 20th win of the season for its first region title since 2013. The Lady Chiefs (20-4) didn’t surrender a single set during their hurricane-abbreviated march... 

Despite turnover, Panthers continue region dominance

Avery Campbell didn’t expect to celebrate a region championship this year. Heading into the season, the sophomore setter figured that with a new coach, just two seniors and a lineup still searching for chemistry, this Carolina Forest volleyball team would be laying the foundation to compete in future years. She’s happy to be wrong. “Very surprised,” Campbell said Thursday night after the... 

CF’s Hatfield, boys team claim Region 6-5A titles

All five Carolina Forest boys runners placed in the top 12 to win the Region 6-5A title on Tuesday, and Lady Panther Brianna Hatfield captured medalist honors among the girls on the Freedom Florence course. Carolina Forest’s Michael Mohr (17:24) and Jacob Dulson (17:29) finished fifth and sixth, respectively – just ahead of Conway’s Monroe Thompkins (17:42), who claimed the seventh... 

Coastal opens long road trip with win at Clemson

For the second time in less than a year, Coastal Carolina’s men’s soccer team went into Clemson and defeated the Tigers. The 1-0 victory for the Chanticleers was CCU’s sixth win of the season. The only goal scored came in the 24th minute when Yazeed Matthews got in the box and took a pass from Tyrone Mondi to score what turned out to be the match-winner. It was a match that saw... 

Wilson takes keys, drives Seahawks to 100th victory

Mickey Wilson vaguely remembers Scott Earley approaching him in April of 2009 and telling the then-assistant two things. First, Earley was leaving after eight seasons, 72 victories and a state championship from the previous December. Second, Wilson was getting a promotion from offensive coordinator to head coach. It was a rather unceremonious bump in title with little fanfare and no news conference.... 

Only MB stands between NMB sweep to region title

The North Myrtle Beach High volleyball team has run the table through the Region 6-4A competition to set up one final shot at the 8-ball against rival and defending state champion Myrtle Beach on Thursday. The Lady Chiefs (19-5) ran their region record to a perfect 9-0 by defeating Marlboro County 2-0 (25-7, 25-4), 2-0 (25-9, 25-7) in Tuesday’s doubleheader. All that’s left is Thursday’s...
