Week 9 Previews & Picks: Big night of football on tap

Week 9 is the kickoff of crunch time on the local high school football scene. After all the non-region blowouts and canceled games due to hurricanes this fall, we finally get a football Friday night like this one.

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

Legette’s comeback puts CF foes in a real ‘Catch 22’

David Legette knows his coaches could have moved on for good. They could have said he just wasn’t working out and utilized other options for 2018, and certainly not game-planned around him as much as they do. Instead, Carolina Forest head coach Marc Morris and offensive coordinator Shane Dular elected to go all in on their talented running back who spent most of last year hobbled by a seemingly...

CF’s Runyon makes home run to coach alma mater

Former Carolina Forest High and University of Alabama softball standout Marisa Runyon hit a different kind of home run Monday with the announcement that she has been promoted to head softball coach at her high school ama mater. Runyon returned to the dugout for the Panthers in the 2018 season as assistant to then-head coach Chad Schildt. She will replace him in the 2019 season. Runyon is a 2013...
