Athlete of Week: Royston riding waves of success

Surfside Beach’s Tyson Royston has been tearing up the waves locally since he was 5 years old, but the most recent Mammy’s Kitchen Athlete of the Week has started to produce on the regional level as well. Royston, who made the finals of the Ron Jon’s Salt Games Pro/Am says his biggest win to date is the Atlantic Surfing Federation East Coast Championship last fall, where he came in 1st place... 

Athlete of Season: MB’s Roberts tops brilliant field

In one of the most decorated fields in Mammy’s Kitchen Athlete of the Season voting history, it only makes sense that the winners shined on the diamond this spring. All-State Myrtle Beach High softball player Cayce Roberts received nearly 20,000 votes to earn the title, followed by Seahawks baseball counterpart Cameron Bodge. North Myrtle Beach’s Cissy Doolittle and Conway’s Neci... 

Athlete of Week: Young’s Socastee stay short, sweet

In the short span of five months, Socastee High’s Brianna Young went from the new kid in school to the big star on campus. Something about winning a state title will do that. The junior relocated to the Grand Strand from Canada in January, when an unseasonably warm winter and an absence of longtime friends allowed Young to focus on her chosen track and field event – the discus. All... 

Athlete of Week: Conway’s Hemingway hits new highs

Conway High’s girls sports teams are enjoying a record-setting year. So is Lady Tigers’ two-sport star Janecia Hemingway. Those two facts are not a coincidence. After helping the Conway girls basketball program to its first-ever Class 5A Lower State championship game appearance, Hemingway made the transition from the hardwood to the diamond to lead the Lady Tigers to a first-ever district... 

Athlete of Week: Socastee soars behind Matlashewski

While the postseason honors keep rolling in for Socastee High soccer standout Chris Matlashewski, he’s still trying to get used to the fact that the season is over. The Braves’ impressive 23-4 campaign came to an end in Saturday’s Class 5A Lower State final with a 2-1 double-overtime loss to defending state champion River Bluff. The disappointment of finishing one win shy of reaching... 

Athlete of Week: Gordon has 100 scores, one goal

Myrtle Beach junior Tristan Gordon scored the 100th goal of her high school career earlier this week, but she is focused on only one goal – helping the Lady Seahawks keep their playoff hopes alive. Gordon leads the Lady Seahawks to the Class 4A Lower State semifinals Friday against defending state champion Chapin. After surpassing a personal milestone, she and the Lady Seahawks hope to reach... 

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...
