Bunn Sweeps Northern Nash
DOUBLE TEAM. Bunn's Alexis McPhail (7) and Bre Monroe (15) double team a set attempt during last week's home spike victory against Northern Nash.
Bunn Sweeps Northern Nash

BUNN -- Bunn and Northern Nash have developed a friendly volleyball rivalry through the years, with the Ladycats usually coming away with a victory.
That was the case once again this fall as Bunn finished off a regular season sweep of the Lady Knights as the clubs played twice during a five-day span.
Last Wednesday, NN played with some tenacity, but the Ladycats would prove to be too much as part of a 25-12, 25-17 and 25-18 decision in non-conference spike action at the Bunn Dome.

BHS' FAKE IDENTITY
GRAND OPENING. D.J. Jones' first game as a member of the Bunn High School football team was a successful one as he rushed for over 100 yards while helping the Wildcats secure a road triumph at Wilson Fike.
BHS' FAKE IDENTITY

WILSON -- The fake punt, which was such an important play during last year's surge to the state finals, is alive and well at Bunn High School.
Trailing midway through the fourth period and faced with the proposition of giving the ball back to the homestanding Wilson Fike Golden Demons, the Wildcats opted for a fake, and Quenten Wright raced for 10 yards and a crucial first down that kept the ball in Bunn's hands.
Moments later, D.J. Jones rumbled in from four yards out to cap the Wildcats' 24-20 decision over Fike on Monday at Bedgood Stadium in the regular season opener for both clubs.

TOUGH OPENER
QUAMON'S QUEST. Louisburg's Quamon Person (with ball) scored a pair of touchdowns last Friday in football action on the road at North Johnston.
TOUGH OPENER

KENLY -- Louisburg's strong opening drive wouldn't translate into long-term success during last Friday's regular season football opener at North Johnston.
After taking the initial kickoff, LHS marched deep into NJ territory and held the ball for over eight minutes before giving up possession on downs.
Six plays later, the Panthers were in the end zone and would never trail the rest of the way en route to claiming a 42-21 decision over the Warriors in non-conference gridiron action.

LOUISBURG -- Louisburg High School's high-expectation volleyball campaign is off to an effective start as the Lady Warriors are excelling under veteran head coach Erica Wammock.

LHS won the event in a sweep by scores of 25-12, 25-18 and 25-20.

Franklinton falls at SJH

BENSON -- Whatever adjustments the South Johnston Trojans made in a 72-hour span certainly paid off during Monday's regular season football opener against the Franklinton Red Rams.
Franklinton, considered an underdog in the contest, led by three points over the Trojans in the second quarter last Friday before storms forced the rest of the event to be moved back to Monday.

Blake Back In Town

Blake Back In Town

BUNN -- When Meredith (Edwards) Blake became West Johnston's volleyball coach last year, she sought to build a program in similar fashion to the one she experienced as a player under Henry Jones at Bunn High School.
So far, so good for Blake, who led the upstart Wildcats to the Greater Neuse River Conference championship in her inaugural campaign.
That now gives Blake four league crowns -- three as a player at Bunn from 2007-09 in addition to last season's heroics.
