Baseball playoff success requires road toughness

Joey Worley has been around just long enough to start to understand the dynamic of the South Carolina baseball playoffs. Like many of the teams who are starting the postseason on the road, Carolina Forest is up against a wall before the first pitch in the most important part of the year is even thrown. “The travel is so far,” said Worley, whose Panthers will head to Chapin on Tuesday. “You...

Green follows his hoops dream to South Carolina

Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach boys basketball standout Mike Green II considered many factors in making his decision to walk on at the University of South Carolina – academics, basketball, social life and more. But in the end, it all came down to two little words: “What if?” “The biggest thing was I didn’t want to go through life wondering ‘what if?'”... 

Lerud brings fresh face, new attitude to Pelicans

Grand Strand baseball fans will notice a few changes when the Myrtle Beach Pelicans open the 2019 season this weekend, but none bigger than the man who is calling all the shots. The last time Steve Lerud was at Pelicans Ballpark was more than a decade ago as a 23-year-old catcher on the visitors’ side whose focus was on making it to the major leagues. Now, as the first-year manager for the... 

Sharks sink their teeth into inside track for region title

The first batter of the game not only reached base against St. James. Moments later, after a wild pitch, sacrifice bunt and fly ball, South Florence’s Korique Rainey scored. He was the last Bruin to do so, and he was also the last one to reach third base. St. James not only came from behind in another region game on Monday; the Sharks put it on their closest competition with a 9-1 victory that...

Seahawks ride defense to Soccer at the Beach final

Despite being shorthanded, the Myrtle Beach High boys and girls soccer teams made strong title-defense bids as hosts of last weekend’s Soccer at the Beach Tournament – with the operative word being “defense.” For the second straight season, the Lady Seahawks (12-2-1 overall, 5-0 Region 6-4A) did not allow a single goal in repeating as girls champions. They won their three... 

Young Panthers starting to put it all together on pitch

When Cole Poirier slotted home his third goal against Conway Friday, he stared at his hand and emphatically counted out the night’s scores on his fingers. He had reason to celebrate. The feat was a first for the junior striker, who had previously scored twice in a high school match but had never notched a hat trick until last week’s 5-0 win over the Tigers. But the victory wasn’t just...
