Briefly: Herweyer wins two NCHSAA titles (again)

Herweyer wins twice for Carrboro in NCHSAA meet

Carrboro’s Magnus Herweyer repeated as a double champion – winning both the shot put and discus for a second straight year – as the Jaguars’ track and field team finished fourth in last weekend’s NCHSAA state championship boys meet in Greensboro.

Carrboro got significant points from the boys 4x400 relay of Tabian Sales, Ted Winans, Ajani Murdaugh-Wright and Quinton Adams, which placed fourth. Adams also finished fourth individually in the 400 meters.

Carrboro’s girls placed seventh. Senior Amanda Hickey was third in the 1600 meters, fifth in the 800, and anchored both Carrboro’s fifth-place 4x800 relay (ninth-graders Sydney Buck and Elisse Deshusses, and seniors Natalie Richardson and Hickey) and the seventh place 4x400 (Buck, Deshusses, Ermine Arcasoy and Carpenter).

Carrboro also got a fourth-place finish from Miley Wagner (pole vault).

Davidson denied HR record as Orange softball loses

Orange junior Mia Davidson has once again been denied a chance to tie or break the NCHSAA record for home runs in a softball season. For the second consecutive game, Davidson was intentionally walked in all four plate appearances as No. 1-seeded Pikevlle Aycock defeated No. 8 Orange 7-5 in the NCHSAA playoffs’ East 3A third round last Friday.

Davidson finished the year with 18 homers, one shy of the NCHSAA record.

Her sister, senior Montana Davidson was 2-for-4 at the plate, with a double, a homer and four RBIs, as Orange finished its season at 23-4.

Northwood knocked out of NCHSAA softball

Hampered by a persistent rain last Friday, East No. 2 seeded-Northwood banged out 17 hits but failed to string enough together in each inning and ended up suffering an upset loss at the hands of No. 26 Corinth Holders in the NCHSAA’s 3A softball playoffs.

The Pirates (14-10) rallied three times, including a four-run seventh inning, to hand the Chargers (20-3) their only loss in 13 home games this year.

“We’re fighters,” said Pirates coach Jessica Potter.
