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... 

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... 

NMB coach Alderson has Chiefs on winning course

When North Myrtle Beach hired Brian Alderson to take over its baseball program back in the early summer of 2014, the school was confident that it was bringing in a proven winner. Sure, there wasn’t even a full-time position available, so he spent that first year splitting time between two schools on either side of the state line, so there was little fear of what the school would do in terms of... 

Conway ace Smith follows trio’s footsteps to big-time

The door bell rang at the Smith house, and a harmless prank was in full motion. Three boys had “kidnapped” the family’s 7-year-old son, Will, tied him up and left a note on the front door demanding three pieces of gum each for his release. Will’s mom, Kayla, did the math. The captors had overshot their mark. “Kayla said for that price they could keep him,” remembered Ashley... 

Lady Panthers find their stride this soccer season

Carolina Forest entered last season with a roster full of talented yet unproven ninth graders. This year, the Panthers aren’t surprising anyone. “Last year was kind of our big year,’” coach Will Hall said. “And then you get kind of excited. … You know you’ve got this whole team coming back.” The Panthers are coming off a season where they went 16-5 and a stellar 9-1 in region play....
