Team to watch

Southeast Raleigh

Southeast Raleigh's girls were a dominant program in last year's NCHSAA indoor championships.

Coach Eddie Harden's Bulldogs topped Charlotte Harding 65-52. Southeast could be the team to beat again this season.

The Bulldogs are led by Amanda Lapp and Chrishawn Williams, 2007 indoor champions.

Lapp won the 1,000 (3:02.45), while Williams won the triple jump (37 feet, 3.5 inches) .

"We don't have the depth right now that we have had some years in the past," Harden said. "We're working to establish the work ethic and the proper attitude."
