UNCW women’s basketball looks to bounce back this season

Bailey Swogger, Sports Editor October 24, 2022
After a lackluster 2021-2022 season, with only three wins and nothing to show for in the CAA Tournament, the UNCW women's basketball team looks to turn around the program with leadership from interim head coach Tina Martin. Coach Martin isn’t exactly new to this situation as she turned around a six-win Delaware team in 1998 to conference champions just three years later.

Diamond Hawks continue to overcome injuries in weekend sweep over Towson

Zachary Kilby, Sports Editor April 19, 2022
Throughout this past weekend’s series against Towson, UNCW was without arguably its two best players. Both Brooks Baldwin and Dillon Lifrieri failed to make an appearance during the three-game slate, leaving the top of the Seahawk order in question. But again, UNCW’s supporting cast stepped up to the plate when they were needed most.

When the lights come on: A moment that was worth the wait for UNCW’s Aidan Smith

Zachary Kilby, Sports Editor April 5, 2022
WILMINGTON, North Carolina – In the bottom of the eighth inning during UNCW’s Friday night matchup with VMI, Aidan Smith did something he had never done before in his three-year career. He played in a college baseball game. To many, Smith’s pinch-hit plate appearance in the ladder stages of an eventual 18-1 blowout win over the Keydets seemed rather insignificant. However, for Smith, it was the opportunity he had patiently been waiting for.
