Chiefs seeking sixth boys hoops coach in nine years

North Myrtle Beach is looking for a new boys basketball coach. And for reasons both in and out of the high school’s control, the process is getting to be fairly routine. Athletics Director Joe Quigley is in the earliest stages of filling the role for the fifth time since the end of the spring of 2011. “Any time you’re hiring, you’re taking a chance,” Quigley said Thursday. “Something... 

Hemingway narrows his college wish list to five

Tonka Hemingway has played enough games with opposing offensive linemen. He’s not going to do it with his college recruitment. On Sunday, the Conway football standout stayed true to his long-term plan by announcing the five schools he’ll consider for the next step of his academic and athletic career. The list includes five power-conference programs: South Carolina, North Carolina, Duke, Wake... 

Seahawks go from funeral to Lower State title match

Even after his death earlier this week, longtime Myrtle Beach High boys tennis coach Rivers Lynch continues to inspire the Seahawks. Following his funeral earlier Thursday, Myrtle Beach defeated South Aiken 4-2 in the third round of the Class 4A playoffs at the Myrtle Beach Tennis Center. Seniors Josh Wallen won No. 2 singles 4-6, 6-4, 10-1, John Edward Cahill won No. 3 singles 6-4, 4-6, 10-2,... 

Illing steps down as Socastee football coach

Doug Illing struggled with the emotions. He even fought himself trying to get back to his old ways. It never happened. The Socastee football coach resigned his post Tuesday after six seasons with the Braves, 21 overall as a head coach and more than 30 total on the sidelines. He cited personal feelings about what it took to be successful, but also what was fair and right to the players. “It’s... 

Sharks top Swamp Foxes, reach lower state tourney

It took a little longer than St. James fans may have hoped, but Monday night worked about as well as possible for the Sharks baseball team. And then it ended up even better than that. Coach Robbie Centracchio’s team won the Class 5A, District VI championship with a 6-1 win over Ashley Ridge in a winner-take-all game two Monday night. The Swamp Foxes forced that second game with 2-0 win earlier... 

CF girls fall in first round for season-ending defeat

Heading into the playoffs, Carolina Forest’s girls soccer team hoped for a better postseason showing than last year’s second-round exit. Most of their players had come back. They repeated as region co-champs. They secured a No. 1 seed. But the Panthers will miss the second round this year. A disciplined Lexington squad stifled Carolina Forest’s offense on Monday and pulled ahead in the second... 

MB girls stun Hilton Head to reach Lower State semis

For all of the dominant results, all the blowouts and a boatload of shutouts, the Myrtle Beach girls soccer team had yet to prove one thing to its coach so far this spring. How would the Seahawks play in an important game when they didn’t have a lead? Blair Mueller loved the answer. Bimpe Oduwole’s header with about 90 seconds left in regulation erased the final bit of a second-half, three-goal... 

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?'”... 

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...
