You don’t have to look outside the school walls to find this year’s Cary High Sports Hall of Fame class.
All three still work or volunteer at the school, and all will be inducted during halftime of the Sept. 21 home football game against Middle Creek.
Megan Armstrong Bryant (2001): Megan Armstrong Bryant was a three-sport athlete. She was the girls’ conference swimmer of the year four times. She never lost a conference race in the 50 or 100 freestyle events, making her an eight-time conference champ while setting conference records in each event. Bryant helped Cary to two conference championships and was named an all-region swimmer all four years.
In soccer, Armstrong was named to the all-state team junior and senior years, was team MVP for three years and a four-time all-conference selection. She played in the 2001 East-West all-star game and was Cary High female athlete of the year. Bryant also ran cross country.
She received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from UNC-Chapel Hill and now lives in Raleigh. She is a counselor at Cary High.
Dr. Douglas Martini (volunteer): For the last 20 years, any Cary High School athlete who’s suffered a sprain, break, tear, concussion or cut has one thing in common: Dr. Douglas Martini.
Martini will begin his 20th year this year as the athletic program’s volunteer team physician. Martini works at Cary Orthopaedics, which has conducted medical exams for Cary High student-athletes and has been on-call for questions.
He has also assisted with Campbell University, Shaw University and the Carolina Hurricanes.
Martini, who graduated from William and Mary and University of Virginia’s medical school, lives in Cary.
Justin Mauney (2000): The N.C. High School Athletic Association thought enough of Justin Mauney’s accomplishments on and off the field to make him the statewide male scholar athlete of the year for the 1999-2000 season. In Mauney’s senior year, he was second-team all-conference in soccer, a first-team all-conference selection in basketball and captain of the track and field team.
Mauney was part of the 1998 state championship soccer team in fall 1998 and ran one leg of the 4-by-800 relay team that finished fourth in the state that spring. He earned eight different awards stressing academics and sportsmanship, including The N&O male scholar-athlete of the year.
Mauney received his undergraduate degree from UNC-Chapel Hill and graduated from Campbell University Law School. He lives in Cary and is an assistant coach on the junior varsity boys’ basketball team.
