Southeast Raleigh has had quite a dynasty in Greater Neuse River 4A track and field. And that continued on Thursday, but while the girls’ team won in a blowout the boys needed about every point they got.
Cleveland, the defending champion in the Two River 3A Conference, bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Erwin Triton the night before to stayed tied for second in the league with Triton at 4-2 behind unbeaten Corinth Holders. Smithfield-Selma dropped to 6-6-1 and 3-3 in the league.
Entering Tuesday’s game at Knightdale, the Clayton softball team was reeling from back-to-back conference losses and in desperate need of a turnaround game. Hannah Ryan gave the Comets the performance they needed, pitching a no-hitter to lead Clayton to an 11-0 win.
In his letter to the editor last week, Town Manager Steve Biggs said Clayton was simply proposing to treat library patrons like parks and recreation participants. By that, the town manager means nonresidents would pay a surcharge to use the library, just as they do to take part in parks and recreation programming.
