Thirteen was an unlucky number for the Bandys girls basketball team Saturday in the 2A West Regional finals in Greensboro.

Story's 33 lift Trojans to final

March 3, 2012

Bandys' third trip to the 2A West Regionals will be longer than the first two.

Madi Story made sure of that Friday night.

The sophomore guard powered her way to 33 points and 10 rebounds against North Surry, leading the Lady Trojans (28-2) to the sectional championship, 60-49, at Fleming Gym on the campus of UNC-Greensboro.

"That's been in her all year," Bandys coach Beth Queen said of Story's performance. "Madi just took control of the game, put us on her shoulders and carried us. She saw what had to be done and took it to the rim for us."

Newton-Conover senior running back Jervasse Moss was tabbed Friday to play in the 64th annual North Carolina Coaches Association East-West All-Star football game.

Moss will play for the West as one of 32 high school football players on the squad.

“I think this is a good opportunity to get ready and prepared for college,” Moss said. “It’s very special because I didn’t get to play many games this season. God just blessed me with another game to play in high school football against the best players. We’ll see what happens when I get down there.”

March 1, 2012

A sinkhole near the baseball field at Hickory High School is causing the Red Tornadoes to move their home baseball games.

Hickory baseball coach David Craft said he was recently notified of the issue at the field.

“There was a problem with an area outside of the playing surface at our field,” Craft said. “We’ve been notified that we are not to use our field.”

Beverly Snowden, public information officer with Hickory Public Schools, said the issue was caused by an existing pipe.

Tigers outlast Bears on diamond in 11 innings

March 1, 2012

There was no shortage of runs Wednesday between Fred T. Foard and Bunker Hill on the baseball diamond.

“It was all heart,” said Foard coach Channon Vogel. “These guys just fight and never give up. In our first game this year against Shelby, we were down three runs with two outs in the seventh inning. We came back and won that game. I knew if we stayed in this game, we’d find a way to win.”
