Athlete of Week: Roberts steps up to plate for MB

The Myrtle Beach High softball team has its own version of “Cayce at the Bat”, and the Lady Seahawks hopes this one has a happier ending. Unlike the old lyric where the hero strikes out, Myrtle Beach sophomore Cayce Roberts rarely goes down swinging in big situations. Batting just under .500 with 35 hits, 26 runs scored, 16 RBIs and 15 stolen bases, Roberts is among the team leaders... 

Athlete of the Week: MB’s Bodge puts team over self

Myrtle Beach High senior Cameron Bodge is no stranger to pitching no-hitters. What he is unfamiliar with – and most proud of – is his team being a state championship contender. Bodge threw a no-hitter for the second straight season on March 31 in a 4-0 victory at Wilson to help the No. 3-ranked Seahawks remain undefeated in Region 7-4A play. In genuinely unselfish form, Bodge shares... 

Athlete of Week: Williams returns to lead St. James

St. James soccer standout Luke Williams couldn’t suit up for his high school squad last season. Now the junior striker is making up for lost time. As a freshman on the Sharks’ surprising state finals run in 2015, Williams got the golden opportunity to join the Charleston Battery’s Academy team last year. While the highly competitive program provided Williams with valuable experience... 

Athlete of the Week: Vaugh aims to live up to nickname

Like most freshmen playing a varsity sport, Myrtle Beach High golfer Keegan Vaugh was given a nickname by his coach and teammates. Fortunately for him, it’s a positive one. “They call me Little Rory (McIlroy),” said a slightly embarrassed Vaugh, who was named the Mammy’s Kitchen Athlete of the Week for his recent performances on the links. “I think it’s just... 

Athlete of Week: NMB’s Hudson goes the distance

The North Myrtle Beach High girls soccer program was in need of a nice kick start, and the Lady Chiefs got it from an unlikely source more than 8,000 miles away – Hadley Hudson from New Zealand. The junior midfielder made the long move last year and she has been helping the program reach new heights ever since. She scored five goals in two games last week to earn the Mammy’s Kitchen... 

Athlete of the Week: Tecco takes talent to college level

Some were surprised when St. James High senior Mackenzie Tecco became the first female wrestler in school history to sign a college scholarship earlier this month, but not Tecco. The accomplishment has been her goal since the first time she stepped onto the mat. “I remember back when I first started and I won my first match I was so excited,” said Tecco, who was voted the Mammy’s... 

Athlete of Week: Johnson doing it all for Lady Chiefs

If you want to know what North Myrtle Beach senior Aquera Johnson brings to the table for the Lady Chiefs, you’d better have a big table. Scorer, rebounder, defender, leader – the list goes on and on. Ironically, it’s her do-it-all mentality that is the strength of her game. “That is my role – to do whatever my team needs me to do,” said Johnson, who leads the... 

Athlete of Week: Chandler, Chiefs surging at right time

The North Myrtle Beach High boys basketball team seems to be putting it all together at the right time. So is Chiefs’ junior point guard Cooper Chandler, and the timing of the two turning points are not coincidental. Chandler was voted the Mammy’s Kitchen Athlete of the Week after leading North Myrtle Beach to three consecutive victories in Region 7-4A play, putting the Chiefs in position... 

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: Chadmon lifts Tigers to new heights

Conway High senior guard Zakera Chadmon and her Lady Tiger teammates would like to do a little redecorating to their home gym before she graduates. It’s an extreme makeover that is long overdue. “We’ve got a whole different demeanor this year because we want to win region,” said Chadmon, who was voted the Mammy’s Kitchen Athlete of the Week for helping the Lady Tigers...
