REEL IT IN. (L to R) Louisburg College's Erica Gurkin and Ryann Kostandin try to corral a pop fly during Sunday afternoon's home softball doubleheader against Region X foe Spartanburg Methodist College at Sheilah R. Cotten Field.
A Tough Day For Lady Canes

LOUISBURG -- One of two scenarios was destined to play out Sunday when Louisburg College hosted long-time rival Spartanburg Methodist in a key Region X fast-pitch softball matchup at Sheilah R. Cotten Field.
The clubs had split a twinbill the day before, which meant the finale was going to determine whether LC could remain in the race for the regular season league crown -- or Spartanburg would flex its muscles as a pre-tourney favorite.

BACK IN ACTION

FRANKLINTON - Following a long layoff for Spring Break, the North Carolina School of Science and Math Lady Unicorns weren't exactly the team the Franklinton Lady Rams wanted to see first when their schedule resumed Monday evening.
After all, NCSSM is one of the most technically sound squads in the Northern Carolina Conference, and the Unicorns currently hold down the top spot in the league.

Warriors edged by Patriots

LOUISBURG -- In what may very well be a Class 1-A State Playoff preview, Louisburg dropped a tough boys home tennis match Monday against Franklin Academy.
LHS had topped the Patriots earlier in the year, but FA returned the favor with a 5-4 decision at the LHS Courts.
It was the first loss of the season for the Warriors, who are now 11-1 overall under veteran head coach Johnathan Waugh.

FAMILY LEGACY
FAMILY LEGACY

LOUISBURG -- As a third generation hoops skipper, it's safe to assume that Michael Sheldon was literally born to coach.
Sheldon's grandfather and father both coached the sport, and his father, Rob, is a member of the Ohio High School Basketball Coaches Hall of Fame.
So it was a bit of a surprise a few years ago when Sheldon stepped down from his successful boys hoops position at Bunn Middle School in order to move into administration.
