SO GREAT AT THE STATE!
SO GREAT AT THE STATE!

GREENSBORO - Before her final attempt in the triple jump, it finally hit Tainasha Vines that her storied three-sport prep career was just a short sprint down the runway -- and a tall leap into the sand -- from being completed.
Vines, Bunn High School's senior standout, made the most of the moment as she won the Girls Triple Jump at the annual Class 2-A State Track and Field Championships.

Elite Eight Not Enough
Elite Eight Not Enough

BUNN -- With the legendary Ashley Driver in attendance, it was only fitting that Bunn continued its deepest run in the Class 2-A State Playoffs since Driver led the Ladycats to a third-place finish in 2007.
That surge was fueled by plenty of mound heroics from Driver, who went on to play at North Carolina Wesleyan College.
Bunn's Erica Davis is following in Driver's dominant footsteps as she has rolled through a trio of postseason foes without even allowing a single run.
