WILMINGTON, NC (StarNewsOnline.com) — An era ends Saturday night, both at the StarNews and in Southeastern North Carolina sports.

Sportswriter Chuck Carree will head off to cover a Wilmington Hammerheads soccer game at Legion Stadium. He’ll file his story, probably well ahead of deadline as usual.

At that will be it – after 35 years of covering athletics along the Lower Cape Fear.

Carree is retiring officially on Saturday. He’ll still step in to cover the occasional game as a correspondent, according to sports editor Dan Spears. The Hammerheads game, however, will cap a full-time sports writing career that began on Groundhog Day 1978 – enough time for Carree to have covered both fathers and sons on the field.
