This Week's Heavy Hitter: Sanford

September 13, 2010

Lenoir-Rhyne University's Ryan Sanford has been selected as this week's Ronnie Lott Heavy Hitter Award winner.

Sanford, a redshirt freshman free safety, made a key hit on a pass break-up late in Saturday’s night game that prevented a touchdown and preserved Lenoir-Rhyne’s 41-13 win over Davidson.

Sanford, who was credited with a tackle against the Wildcats and has three takedowns for the season, wins the award for the first time in his Bear career.

GoldToeMoretz will donate $1,000 in the names of each week’s winner of the Heavy Hitter Award to Habitat For Humanity of Catawba County.

Lakewood wins pivotal Game 3

September 11, 2010

The Lakewood BlueClaws scored three runs in the first inning Saturday, and they never looked back. The BlueClaws defeated the Hickory Crawdads 6-0 in the third game of the Divisional Round of the South Atlantic League playoffs.

The BlueClaws won the series 2-1.

Lakewood catcher Sebastian Valle dealt the first blow with a two run homer in the bottom of the first inning and was followed later by an RBI single from third baseman Jeremy Barnes to make it 3-0.

Lakewood added a run in the fourth, before two unearned runs in the 8th
came in to account for the 6-0 final.

Bunker Gets Win No. 4

September 11, 2010

It’s been 11 years since Bunker Hill started a regular season 4-0. The Bears broke that streak Friday against the Fred T. Foard Tigers doing what they do best — running the ball and eating the clock. The Bears defeated the Tigers 34-13 at Foard and improved to 4-0 for the first time since in 12 seasons.

Bunker Hill (4-0) gained 254 yards of total offense, and 164 of those yards came from junior running back Reggie Davis, who had 19 carries.

N-C Overcomes Turnovers

September 11, 2010

It seemed like an undefeated Newton-Conover on Friday wanted to give the game to the St. Stephens and deny coach Nick Bazzle a 100th career win. The Red Devils committed four turnovers in the first half — three lost fumbles and an interception, but they rebounded in the second half en route to a 28-14 win at St. Stephens.

“There could have been a little more shine on it,” Bazzle said. “It’s not that big of a deal to me. I have coaches that prepare just as hard as I do. I’m in a football place, and they love football in this community, and you’re supposed to win at Newton-Conover.”

'Remember this day'

Library display honors fallen heroes

September 10, 2010

Catawba County is more than 600 miles from New York City.
Sandy Cooke, Sherrills Ford Library branch manager, wanted to close that gap and bring the events of Sept. 11 closer to home.
“It affects us all,” Cooke said of the attacks. “We all have a personal stake in this. We’re human.”
For the last eight years, Cooke created a Sept. 11 display in the Sherrills Ford Library, complete with books, memorabilia, photographs and newspapers about what many people say changed the course of American history.

Bunker Hill Goes For Fourth Straight Win

September 10, 2010

The Bunker Hill Bears are looking for something they haven’t found in 11 years — a 4-0 start to a football season. The last time the Bears went 4-0 to start a season, Bill Clinton was the president.

That thought, however, is not even in the players’ heads.

“I don’t think that is registering with any of the kids, and we are just preparing for our next opponent,” Bunker Hill coach Travis Conner said. “We are just going to keep plowing forward.”

The Bears go for their fourth straight win Friday at Fred T. Foard.
