CHRIS' QUEST AT BHS

BUNN - Bunn High School once again claimed the Northern Carolina Conference baseball championship this spring -- and that should come as no surprise, considering Chris Cullom was in charge of the program.
During Cullom's five years at Bunn -- two as an assistant and the past three as head coach -- the Wildcats have claimed the NCC diamond title.
And in Cullom's head coaching tenure, Bunn has put together a lofty 62-11 record against an always-challenging schedule.

Rams on top of the solid NCC

FRANKLINTON -- When he took over the track and field program at Franklinton High School two years ago, Clennie Wilkins simply hoped to continue the success that Trent Sanders enjoyed there before his untimely passing.
Wilkins has seen to that and more as Franklinton's track program keeps on growing while developing into an area powerhouse.
Wilkins has also overseen the growth of the Franklinton cross country squad -- a move that also helps out the track and field team when spring arrives.

Carlson Builds LC Program

LOUISBURG -- In the estimation of Michelle Carlson, momentum isn't just about a team's ebbs and flows on the playing field.
To Carlson, momentum can also serve as a long-term compass for the direction of a program -- but the moment must be seized in order to continue that upward spike.
So Carlson, after a solid first year as the head coach at Louisburg College, has been recruiting in relentless fashion while trying to build on the Lady Hurricanes' successful spring campaign.
