Holly Springs Salamanders player Brian Miller was named the Coastal Plain League hitter of the week after going 14-for-22 just before the CPL All-Star Game.
Miller, a rising sophomore at North Carolina and former star at Millbrook High in North Raleigh, leads the CPL in batting. Miller bats leadoff for the Salamanders and had at least two hits in five games to earn the award.
The Salamanders are 8-5 so far in the second half of the season. Miller and teammate Collin Woody participated in the league’s all-star game last week.
Eberhardt signs: Middle Creek graduate Sheldon Eberhardt has signed to play at Elon in the fall. Eberhardt averaged 15.5 points per game, leading the Mustangs to a 13-12 overall record while being named to the Southwest Wake Athletic’s all-conference team.
Invasion tryouts: The Cary Invasion is hosting an open tryout on Aug. 8 at the Herb Young Center in downtown Cary. Registration is at 9 a.m. and the cost of the tryout is $60.
The Invasion won the Tobacco Road Basketball League’s East division title last spring, earning a first-round bye in the playoffs before falling in the second round.
