Post succeeds Bowne as Saint coach

June 22, 2011

To replace any area coaching legend, St. Stephens High School decided to hire from within its basketball family.

Murphy Post, a four-year member of the teaching faculty and coaching staff at the school, was named the new boys’ basketball coach. He replaces Gary Bowne, who retired last week from coaching and teaching.

Post has served as the junior varsity head coach for the program and an assistant under Bowne for the varsity program.

Johnson homers twice for Post 29

June 22, 2011

Hickory Post 48 and Caldwell County Post 29 battled two things Tuesday — the weather and each other.

Caldwell’s Blake Johnson homered twice — a two-run bomb in the top of the first inning and a solo shot in the fifth inning — to give Post 29 the 8-1 lead after seven innings.

The final two innings and score were not available due to press time.
Post 29 (11-5, 9-3) took the early 3-0 lead behind Johnson’s first home run and an RBI-single from Max Linville.

A fourth run scored for Caldwell County in the top of the third inning, when Jon Gray plated Bowman on a single.
