Athlete of the Season: Pair of wrestlers top winter list

The 2014 Mammy’s Kitchen Athlete of the Winter Sports Season list is perhaps pound-for-pound the strongest in recent memory. Topping the voting are a pair of wrestlers who barely hit triple digits on the scale – North Myrtle Beach 106-pounder Christian Coppola and Socastee 120-pounder Dylan Martin. Socastee teammate Quin Gammon at 113 pounds made it three lightweights among the top six... 

Athlete of the Week: NMB’s Matt Lindsey leaves mark

One of the things that makes the playoffs so exciting is also what makes them difficult for players, particularly seniors. Except for one team, all the others will end their seasons and careers with a loss. That was the case for North Myrtle Beach High senior Matt Lindsey when his Chiefs were eliminated in the second round of the Class 3A state tournament against Darlington, which faces rival Myrtle... 

Boys Hoops: Seahawks, Chiefs roll in first round

The North Myrtle Beach boys rolled to an easy 59-41 victory over visiting James Island in Thursday’s opening round of the Class 3A state basketball playoffs. Clinging to a 30-25 advantage at halftime, the No. 6-ranked Chiefs (22-6) caught fire in the third quarter to put the game away. They outscored the Trojans 18-10 in the period and never looked back. North Myrtle Beach’s Matt Lindsey... 

Athlete of the Week: NMB’s Chestnut leads by example

After losing three all-region selections off last year’s team, the North Myrtle Beach girls basketball team wasn’t expected to be a contender this year. Someone forgot to tell that to Marci Chestnut. The senior center is leading the Lady Chiefs into the Class 3A playoffs thanks to her tenacious play in the paint as of late. She has recorded double-doubles in NMB’s last four games... 

UPDATE: Chiefs-Seahawks potential play-in game set

The Myrtle Beach High boys basketball team may be ranked No. 1 in the state, but they may have to settle for No. 2 in their own region. If Myrtle Beach defeats Georgetown at home on Monday, the two teams will meet for a third time on Tuesday to settle the region title at Conway High at 7:30 p.m. The visiting Seahawks (17-6 overall, 8-1 Region 7-3A) suffered a 55-52 loss to No. 6 North Myrtle Beach... 

Chiefs silence Braves, face showdown with Seahawks

The lengthy winter weather delay didn’t keep the No. 6-ranked North Myrtle Beach boys basketball team from coming out red-hot in Friday night’s 46-34 victory over host Socastee. The Chiefs and Braves were polar opposites in a first quarter that saw NMB turn an early 4-4 tie into a 16-0 run to close the period. The Braves never closed within double digits the rest of the way. In an odd promotion,... 

Athlete of the Week: NMB’s Stanaland adds triple threat

The early scouting report on the North Myrtle Beach boys basketball team was well known by opponents: Stop the Lindsey twins and you can stop the Chiefs. But that strategy is out the door now that NMB seniors Matt and Josh Lindsey have been joined to form a triple threat. Matthew Stanaland has stepped forward as a scorer just as the Chiefs have become a state title contender. Stanaland, a junior guard... 

Boys Hoops: MB, NMB put distance on rest of region

The North Myrtle Beach boys basketball team connected on 10 3-pointers and shot a perfect 13-for-13 from the free throw line to knock off visiting Socastee on Wednesday night. Twin brothers Matt and Josh Lindsey scored 14 and 13 points apiece to lead the No. 8-ranked Chiefs (17-4 overall, 6-1 Region 7-3A). Cameron Gore also scored 13 as NMB stayed hot on rival Myrtle Beach’s heels in the region... 

Girls Hoops: MB, NMB get double-doubles in victories

Just call it a double double-double. The North Myrtle Beach girls basketball team got a pair of double-doubles for the second straight night to score back-to-back region victories at home. After defeating Wilson on Tuesday, the Lady Chiefs (14-6 overall, 4-2 Region 7-3A) took down visiting Socastee 50-37 on Wednesday to maintain second place in the standings. North Myrtle Beach freshman Aquera Johnson... 

Boys Hoops: Matts lift NMB; MB rallies to beat Panthers

Sometimes for the North Myrtle Beach boys basketball team, it’s the Lindseys. Other nights, it’s the Matts. “Matts” were the case in Saturday’s 60-38 victory over visiting St. James. Matthew Stanaland scored a game-high 19 points and Matt Lindsey tallied 14 to lead the Chiefs (15-4, 4-1) past the Sharks (6-14, 1-5). Josh Lindsey and Drew Dunn added seven points apiece...
