Sports briefs for March 12, 2010

In a story in Wednesday’s Coastal Courier about the All-Star Basketball Tournament, Rion Brown’s name was inadvertently omitted from the roster. Brown will join his teammate Jordan McRae on the boys senior South All-Star Team. According to, Brown has averaged 23.6 points per game, averaged 3.3 assists per game and 7.9 rebounds per game.

Wednesday’s Lady Tigers story identified Mt. Zion’s pastor as Ricky Jackson. Mt. Zion’s pastor is actually Micky Jackson. The Courier regrets the errors.
