Carolina Forest knocks off Conway in defensive duel

Conway’s defense slowed down Carolina Forest Thursday night, but the Tigers couldn’t muster enough offense to match the Panthers. Carolina Forest (6-1, 3-1 region) defeated their rivals 20-7 in a game that featured a few big plays and lots of stout defense. For the Panthers, the victory was a morale boost after last week’s tough loss to West Florence. “The beauty of high school football... 

Panthers suffer first defeat in showdown with Knights

The Carolina Forest offense watched nearly helplessly as Ailym Ford did what he’s done to so many others in the past. The West Florence tailback put on a performance for the ages in the second half Friday night at Florence’s Memorial Stadium and led his Knights squad to not only a 51-44 victory, but also into the driver’s seat for the Region VI-5A championship and a shot at homefield advantage... 

Despite turnover, Panthers continue region dominance

Avery Campbell didn’t expect to celebrate a region championship this year. Heading into the season, the sophomore setter figured that with a new coach, just two seniors and a lineup still searching for chemistry, this Carolina Forest volleyball team would be laying the foundation to compete in future years. She’s happy to be wrong. “Very surprised,” Campbell said Thursday night after the... 

CF’s Hatfield, boys team claim Region 6-5A titles

All five Carolina Forest boys runners placed in the top 12 to win the Region 6-5A title on Tuesday, and Lady Panther Brianna Hatfield captured medalist honors among the girls on the Freedom Florence course. Carolina Forest’s Michael Mohr (17:24) and Jacob Dulson (17:29) finished fifth and sixth, respectively – just ahead of Conway’s Monroe Thompkins (17:42), who claimed the seventh... 

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... 

Golf: CF, SJ qualify in 5A; MB, NMB finish 2-3 in 4A

The St. James girls golf team was runner-up at Monday’s Class 5A Lower State Tournament, and two Carolina Forest players tied for third individually to lead the Lady Panthers to a share of fourth place and a berth in next week’s SCHSL State Championships at the Columbia Country Club. Carolina Forest eight-grader Mia Gray and Victoria Callahan shot identical rounds of 74 to lead the... 

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... 

Volleyball: Chiefs, Panthers take broom to region rivals

The North Myrtle Beach volleyball team continued its unbeaten run through Region 6-4A with a doubleheader sweep over Darlington on Monday. The Lady Chiefs (17-5 overall, 7-0 region) won the first match 2-0 (25-10, 25-15), and the second 2-0 (25-5, 26-24). Jordan Berger and Kaydee Runion led the Chiefs with nine kills each. Kaitlin Downey had a strong serving night with five aces. Brooklyn Wisely... 

Panthers stroll past Sharks, set up key 6-5A showdown

Carolina Forest is typically pretty reserved when it comes to what it attempts on special teams. Jackson Weatherwax has been around long enough to know that history said it would be he and his teammates’ night, so he went ahead and took a chance. His long punt return added to an explosive first half as the Panthers rolled Region 6-5A foe St. James 55-13 and set up a monster game for next week. “There... 

Football rivals team up to stay sharp, help neighbors

Facing weeks of canceled practices and games, Mason Garcia knew his teammates couldn’t miss a month of football and expect to return in midseason form. So the Carolina Forest quarterback decided to call a practice. Garcia began texting some of his teammates, and they met at Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium in Myrtle Beach. The players ran sprints and played 7-on-7. The team boasted a perfect record...
