Athlete of Week: Wolfe’s work ethic sparks Chiefs

North Myrtle Beach High sophomore wrestler Curtis Wolfe has a brief but effective ritual he goes through before every match, and it’s literally “working.” “When I step on the mat the first thing I say is, ‘He can’t be working harder than me,’ ” said Wolfe, who was voted the Mammy’s Kitchen Athlete of the Week following strong individual and...

Athlete of Week: Mat time pays off big for Armstrong

As a 6-foot, 260-pound offensive lineman at Socastee High, speed is not an asset normally attributed to sophomore C.J. Armstrong. But given his rapid transition to the sport of wrestling, the heavyweight just might be the fastest kid on the Braves’ mat. After picking up the sport just two years ago as an eighth-grader at Forestbrook Middle, Armstrong has gone from beginner to contender in...

With a challenging first half of the season behind her and promising future at the next level ahead, Myrtle Beach High senior Kiana Adderton can now focus on one thing – a Class 4A state championship.

Athlete of the Week: Tario earns East Coast surf title

The East Coast Adaptive Surfing Championship trophy was so heavy that when our Athlete of the Week hoisted it above her head in classic celebration style, she flipped her wheelchair backwards, landing in the sand, laughing. Veronica Tario, known as “Roni” to her friends, was crowned the very first East Coast champion, of the adaptive surfing division, at the Atlantic Surfing Federation’s... 

Athlete of Week: Hix sets Seahawks up for success

For Myrtle Beach High junior setter Danni Hix, volleyball has always been a family affair. That’s why she has no problem sharing credit for her Mammy’s Kitchen Athlete of the Week award with both her natural-born relatives and her new teammates. “I learned a lot about volleyball from both my sister, Tara, and my mom (Dixie). They were my coaches for a while, and they were also setters...
