• A photo accompanying last Wednesday's report of Carrboro's triumph in the NCHSAA 2A swimming and diving championship incorrectly identified a swimmer. While Connor Murphy did indeed swim the anchor leg of Carrboro's winning 200 medley relay and the 200 free relay, the photo showed Will Macmillan winning the 100-yard freestyle.
• In the CHN's report Wednesday on qualifiers for this weekend's state wrestling championships in Greensboro, we inadvertently omitted Chapel Hill's Camden Bergey, who qualified at 170 pounds by finishing in fourth place of last weekend's NCHSAA's 3A Mideast Regional at Eden Morehead High School.
