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... 

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... 

Athlete of Week: Adderton has MB’s eye on state title

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. After falling one win short of that goal last year, Adderton knows this is her and her last chance to hoist the hardware – and she is taking it very seriously. “My mindset is ‘Eat... 

Athlete of Week: Volleyball star has hot hand at hoops

Following an all-state performance on the volleyball court in the fall, it didn’t take Carolina Forest junior Alexis Tomlin very long to make the transition to the basketball hardwood. In fact, the two-sport star is the first winner of the Mammy’s Kitchen Athlete of the Week Award of the winter sports season. Whether it’s volleyball or basketball, you will always find Tomlin around... 

Athlete of the Fall Season: Jenerette goes distance

On the day that Wilson Jenerette was voted the Mammy’s Kitchen Athlete of the Fall Season, she was going about starting her resume for some winter sports honors. The North Myrtle Beach High cross country runner’s strong season that saw her lead the Lady Chiefs to a top-10 finish in the state was up to her old tricks Saturday by taking first place in the women’s division of the...
