Warriors Winning On Diamond

LOUISBURG -- In what was nothing short of an amazing occurrence, Louisburg High School's first 15 batters reached during Tuesday's home baseball showdown against Tar-Roanoke Athletic Conference opponent Southeast Halifax.
By the time the frame was finally complete, Louisburg had secured 13 runs on it way to a convincing 28-0 decision over the Trojans at Warrior Field on the LHS campus.

CREATE A RACQUET
FULL EXTENSION. Louisburg High School No. 1 Singles Player Josh Forsyth lunges for a return during his club's road tennis contest Monday afternoon against the Nash Central Bulldogs in Rocky Mount.
CREATE A RACQUET

ROCKY MOUNT - When Nash Central traveled to Louisburg last Wednesday, the weather was so cold and windy that the teams agreed to suspend play after singles competition -- and with the visiting Bulldogs already clinching the team victory by a 5-1 score.
Conditions were much more favorable for Monday's rematch at the NCHS Courts, but the result was still the same.
Nash Central took four of the six singles matches and swept the doubles on its way to defeating the Warriors by a 7-2 margin in non-conference boys tennis action.

SANDERS SALUTE
LOUISBURG'S LEXI DUNN
SANDERS SALUTE

FRANKLINTON -- Weather conditions weren't ideal, but that wouldn't have stopped Trent Sanders during his glorious tenure as the Franklinton High School track and field coach.
After Sanders' sudden passing, FHS decided to honor the coach with the T Sanders Invitational Track and Field Championships -- of which the third installment was held last Saturday in cool, rainy temperatures at the FHS Football Field.

LC coach honored in league

LOUISBURG -- Talk about a tough act to follow -- and handling the proposition with ease.
When he took over the Louisburg College men's basketball program two years ago, Neil Dixon faced the task of the succeeding the wildly successful Mark Vanderslice, who left to take an NCAA Division II job at USC-Aiken.
But the Hurricanes haven't missed a beat under Dixon and are making their second consecutive appearance this week at the NJCAA Division II National Tournament.

Wilson earns hoops award
Wilson earns hoops award

LOUISBURG -- Andreas Wilson has enjoyed quite a career as a member of the Louisburg High School boys basketball season -- and the junior standout guard still has one more year to go. Wilson excelled in 2016-17 while helping the Warriors reach the Class 1-A State Playoffs. Wilson began to draw plenty of acclaim from beyond Franklin County after averaging 26.7 points and 7.4 rebounds per outing.

Learning Curve
LAY DOWN THE LAW. Bunn's Delaney Wilson executes a bunt during last Friday's game versus South Granville.
Learning Curve

BUNN -- Taking on a two-time defending state champion can be a daunting task -- especially for a team as young as the Bunn Ladycats on the softball diamond.
Bunn features just two seniors, along with a strong core of freshman and sophomore starters, for the 2017 campaign.
South Granville also has some younger performers, including three ninth-graders in its lineup, but the Lady Vikings also have plenty of experience as they look for a state three-peat on the Class 2-A level this season.

Big Week For BHS

BUNN -- Two convincing victories and a showdown against defending state runner-up South Granville.
Certainly, it was quite a five-day stretch for the Bunn Wildcats that began last Thursday with a Northern Carolina Conference road matchup against the Franklinton Red Rams.
The outcome of the event wasn't in doubt from the outset as Bunn delivered a 19-0 decision over the host Red Rams.
