WHO’S NEWS Brown signs with Francis Marion

ROUGHEDGE — Michelle Brown made it official on Tuesday afternoon, signing a letter-of-intent to take a Division I soccer scholarship with Francis Marion University in South Carolina. Brown has already been a two-time all-conference, BROWN all-county and all-region selection. She was also a four-year starter in basketball, and has maintained a ‘B’ average in the classroom. Michelle’s parents — Melvin and Paula Brown — have made out well in terms of college expenses. Michelle’s older sister, Tiffany, was an all-Southern Conference guard for Georgia Southern University on full scholarship. She now plays professional basketball overseas. Michelle is the eighth girls soccer player in Union County to sign a Division I scholarship this winter. The others include: Lee Page (Wake Forest), Nicole Costa (UNC Wilmington) and Alex Kachulis (Wofford) of Weddington; Toni Lashley (Charleston Southern), Alyssa Clark (Coastal Carolina) and Amanda Clark (Coastal Carolina) of Marvin Ridge and Liz Rounds (UNC Charlotte) of Porter Ridge.

Leak, Fuller shine at Nike combine

CHARLOTTE — Nearly 1,100 high school football players from the region attended the Nike Football Combine in Charlotte on Saturday, and Parkwood High’s Marcus Leak was the best athlete there based on their testing. Leak, who has been offered by Maryland, ran the 40-yard dash in 4.62 seconds and had a vertical leap of 37.4 inches. His score of 117.30 over a series of tests ranked No.1. Leak, who was measured at 5-foot-11 and weighed 194, has already been a two-time first-team all-Union County and all-conference receiver. Sun Valley sophomore Jody Fuller (5-11.5, 194 pounds) was rated the top underclassman at the event. Fuller ran a 4.80 in the 40 and had a 37.5-inch vertical leap.

NASCAR adding pit stop to all-star race

CONCORD (AP) — NASCAR has added a mandatory four-tire pit stop to the format of the Sprint All-Star Race. The race will once again be decided by a 10-lap shootout to the finish. But, for the first time, teams will be required to enter pit road for a full stop. The order that cars exit pit road will determine how they line up for the sprint to the $1 million payout. “The pit crew is going to be under the gun and under pressure to get the job done to get you out first,” Kyle Busch said after Wednesday’s announcement. The remainder of the format for the May 22 race at Charlotte Motor Speedway remains unchanged. The race begins with a 50-lap segment, and there is a mandatory green-flag, four-tire pit stop after the 25th lap. That is followed by two 20-lap segments, then a 10-minute break before the final sprint to the finish. Under the new tweak, drivers will leave pit road after the break in the order they finished the third segment. There are currently 18 drivers eligible for the race, which series sponsor Sprint consistently tweaks to add excitement to NASCAR’s version of an all-star event. Martin Truex Jr. said NASCAR’s allstar event is a better showcase than the ones held by the four traditional professional sports. “We put a lot of effort into it,” Truex said. “Not to say that other sports don’t. But I think if you watch, for instance, the NFL All-Star Game this past year, a lot of guys couldn’t even play because they were going to be in the Super Bowl. So their best of their best couldn’t even play.”

Sophomore Dawn Harris struck out seven and earned the win on the mound in addition to going 2-for-4 at the plate to help Forest Hills improve to 3-0.

E-J Correspondent Weddington Forest Hills High built a 6-0 lead over Weddington in the first two innings, then added a couple insurance runs in the seventh to take home an 8-4 win over the Warriors Wednesday night. Forest Hills remains unbeaten at 3-0, while WHS is still looking for its first win (0-4). Kimberly Rivers and Nicole Helms got on base in the first inning with a walk and a single, respectively, and Natalie High followed Helms with a two-RBI double to deep left field to give the Yellow Jackets a 2-0 lead. The Jackets had two more doubles in the inning that helped them build a 4-0 first-inning lead with High and Colbi Helms scoring the other two runs. Helms had an RBI double and Jennifer Antonucci also had an RBI

double in the opening frame. Rivers reached again in the second inning, this time on a single, and after a flyout, Helms stepped back to the plate and with one pitch and one swing the Yellow Jackets were up 6-0 on her two-run homer to left field. The Yellow Jackets’ offense cooled down, with just three hits over the next four innings. The Warriors made it interesting by racking up four runs in the fourth to cut the lead to 6-4. Emily Usiak got the rally going with a solo home run to left field with one out on a 3-2 count. Amy Reader and Amber King each got on with the help of errors, with the second putting them on first and third. King took second easy on a no throw by the catcher.

Piedmont now 5-0

Wolfpack, W. Va., Arkansas latest to offer Mavs’ Brent

By JERRY SNOW

MONROE Monroe High’s boys basketball players and coaches were fitted for their state championship rings this week, and coach Johnny Sowell expects to have a ring ceremony at the athletic banquet in May. “The banquet will be totally different than what it’s usually like,” said Sowell, whose team won the 1A state title last Saturday in Chapel Hill. “We’ve been meeting with administration and not everything is finalized, but we have some things in the works to honor the kids.” More than half of Sowell’s 13 players are expected to participate on his track team, but not before getting eight days off in between seasons. All 13 players who were in uniform in Saturday’s state title game were also on Sowell’s 12-1 football team. “It’s been in a long year coming out of football straight into basketball,” Sowell said. “There was no time to give the kids a break, and then we played 33 basketball games. That’s a lot. “They get the week off, and come Monday, whether you run track or not, if you play football you start lifting weights.”

The Enquirer-Journal

Owners unanimously approve Jordan taking on $150 million in debt as Bobcats’ new majority owner CHARLOTTE (AP) — Michael Jordan became a basketball star at North Carolina. Now he’ll try to turn around the state’s money-losing NBA team by becoming the first explayer to be a majority owner in the league. The NBA’s Board of Governors on Wednesday unanimously approved Jordan’s $275 million bid to buy the Charlotte Bobcats from Bob Johnson. Jordan will immediately take over the team after functioning as a minority investor with the final say on basketball decisions since 2006. “Purchasing the Bobcats is the culmination of my postplaying career goal of becoming the majority owner of an NBA franchise,” Jordan said in a statement. “I am espe-

Stern said last week that background and financial checks on Jordan produced nothing that would stop the deal, and expressed optimism Jordan’s iconic status in this area will boost the franchise. Jordan grew up in Wilmington, N.C., and led North Carolina to an NCAA title with a last-second shot before starring with the Chicago Bulls. Jordan briefly ran the Wizards basketball operations and returned as a player with Washington before being fired from his management role in 2003.

Ingram struck out 10 and allowed just three hits in the complete-game victory. “He kinda shut us down,” said Piedmont coach Milt Flow. “He throws pretty hard and has decent off-speed stuff. They said he was throwing 89, and we weren’t ready for that. It’s good experience for our boys to see that.” West Stanly improved to 5-0 in the league and 5-1 overall, while Piedmont fell to 4-1 in the RRC and 5-3 overall. Piedmont junior Brad Elwood took the loss on the mound. Elwood, who has committed to the Charlotte 49ers, was 2-for-3 with a double and his team’s only RBI. Teammate Will Dorton was 1-for-2 and Will Ray scored Piedmont’s run. The Panthers are at Cuthbertson on Friday.

Bobcats rally from down 19 to beat Thunder CHARLOTTE (AP) — Stephen Jackson scored 18 of his 20 points in the second half and Charlotte rallied to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 100-92 on Wednesday night to give Michael Jordan a victory in his first game as Bobcats majority owner. Hours after the NBA’s Board of Governors approved Jordan’s $275 million purchase, he watched his team stage a dramatic recovery from a horrible start. The comeback from a 19-point, second-quarter deficit matched the largest in franchise history. Stephen Graham matched a career high with 19 points fill-

ing in for the injured Gerald Wallace, and the Bobcats won for the seventh time in eight games. Kevin Durant had 26 points and 10 rebounds, but was 9 of 26 from the field for the Thunder, whose five-game winning streak was snapped. Jeff Green had 17 points, and Russell Westbrook added 15 points and 10 assists, but the Thunder became undone after dominating much of the first two quarters to lose for only the fourth time in 21 games. While the loss prevented the Thunder from clinching a winning record and putting

heat on Utah for the fourth seed in the West, the victory helped the Bobcats maintain sixth place in the Eastern Conference. Jackson’s 3-pointer with 4:48 left put Charlotte ahead 89-85 and the Thunder never threatened again as the Bobcats got contributions from many. Raymond Felton had 17 points and seven assists, Boris Diaw added 13 points, and rookie Derrick Brown scored 11 points to make a smiling Jordan 1-0 since becoming the first former player to be a majority owner. The new ownership regime meant few immediate chang-

es, although Bobcats coach Larry Brown joked before the game that at least he was “still working” after Tuesday’s loss to struggling Indiana. He added that Jordan “picked a tough night to be his first night as owner” with the Bobcats facing the surging Thunder. The Thunder built a 51-32 lead, highlighted by Serge Ibaka’s leaping, one-handed putback jam over Tyrus Thomas. But Thomas fueled Charlotte’s 11-0 run in less than 2 minutes to close the half with a steal of Westbrook and a dunk. Raymond Felton’s 3-pointer in the final second cut the deficit to 51-43 at halftime.

Delaney, Hudson combine for 44 in Hokies’ victory BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Malcolm Delaney scored 19 of his game-high 25 points in the first half and Dorenzo Hudson added 19 to lead Virginia Tech past Quinnipiac 81-61 in a first-round NIT game Wednesday night. The Hokies (24-8), who advanced to play Connecticut at home in the second round on a date to be determined, shrugged off the disappointment of not making the NCAA tournament by holding the Bobcats to 38.1 percent shooting from the floor (24 for 63) and outrebounding one of the nation’s best teams on the boards, 42-30. Quinnipiac came in ranked No. 1 nationally in rebounding margin (plus 9.2) and seventh in rebounds per game (40.7). “I’m really proud of my team,” Tech coach Seth Greenberg said. “I’m proud of their resolve. They probably handled this situation (not making the NCAA tournament) better than I did, to be honest. ... But for them to come out and play as hard as they did and to be ready, that’s probably what hurt me so much. Because that’s who they are.” Delaney, who was coming off a 3-for-15, seven-point performance in the Hokies’ 70-65 quarterfinal loss to Miami in the ACC tournament that cost them an at-large bid to the NCAAs, hit four 3-pointers and went 6 for 9 from the floor in the first half alone against Quinnipiac’s zone in helping Tech build a 12-point halftime margin. Quinnipiac, regular-season champions in the Northeast Con-

Continued from Page 1B

ference, finished 23-10. Tech opened the second half with a 7-2 run culminating with Delaney’s two-handed slam with 17:48 left that built the lead to 17. Tech went on to lead by as many as 23. “We were trying to slow the game down on offense and defense,” Quinnipiac coach Tom Moore said. “We usually don’t play that much zone. I thought it was a way to slow the pace, but Delaney blew a hole in that in the first half and they showed good patience in the second half, too. You’ve got to pick your poison. He’s just terrific.” Delaney is the ACC’s leading scorer at 20.4 point per game.

Sophomore Julia Fincher struck out four batters for the Warriors, who host Providence today.

A wild pitch allowed Reader to score from third and King to go to third. King eventually scored on a bloop single by Paula Howard. After Allie D’Entremont drew a walk, McKenzie Pautz scored Howard with an RBI single to left field. But that would be all for the Warriors, who got six runners on base and three runners in scoring position in the last three innings but could not do plate any of them. Helms and High scored the last two runs in the top of the seventh inning to N. HELMS give the Yellow Jackets a healthy lead, scoring on an RBI sacrifice fly by Colbi Helms and a sac grounder by Antonucci. Nicole Helms finished 3-for-4 with three runs scored and two RBI for FH. Sophomore Dawn Harris pitched all seven innings for the win, striking out seven batters. The win sets up a Forest Hills’ conference showdown with undefeated Piedmont today at home starting at 4:30 p.m.

Martin feeling the magic again at 51 years old FLORENCE, S.C. (AP) — It was about a year ago that Mark Martin set off on a NASCAR ride like few others in his stellar career. Five Sprint Cup victories, a runner-up finish to champ Jimmie Johnson in the Chase, and, at 51 years old, a renewed passion for his life’s work. “It was a magical year, last year, for me,” Martin said Wednesday. “And I still feel the magic each time I strap into a race car.” Martin has yet to crack Victory Lane this year, but stands seventh in the points as the circuit returns from a week off at Bristol Motor Speedway on Sunday.

And Martin believes he’s got a more polished, savvy team ready to win when it matters most — down the stretch. Martin certainly made headlines with victories at Phoenix International Raceway and Darlington Raceway last spring. He even beat chase master Johnson to the punch early with a victory at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in the first of the 10 playoff races that determine the champion. However, Johnson’s experience shone through as the No. 48 team took an unprecedented fourth consecutive NASCAR title. “I hope (this year) that we’ll have the hammer when it’s time

to go,” Martin said. He spent lunchtime talking with about 200 or so fans who signed up for a questionand-answer session with the NASCAR MARTIN star. He tackled everything from his celebrated workout regimen (“Wednesday was leg day,” he offered) to how he meshes with his equally famous fellow Hendrick drivers (Very well, he said. “Dale Jr. really cracks us up.”) Mostly, Martin spoke of his joy for racing.

“I’ve said several times already today, if there were any beach in the world I’d rather be on than at the racetrack, that’s where I’d be,” said Martin, grinning broadly. It wasn’t too long ago, that beach chair might’ve looked pretty good to Martin. He rose to NASCAR stardom with owner Jack Roush, winning 35 races over 19 seasons. However, much of that time, Martin burned for a championship. Anything less was a disappointment, no matter how much success he had. And Martin came oh so close — he had 12 top-five series finishes at Roush Racing — but was never able to break through

and grew more frustrated about his profession. Bothered by a surgically repaired back that didn’t feel right, Martin sought alternatives. “I drove that (Roush No.) 6 car to win that championship and I think that left me a little hollow,” he said. He became a part-time Sprint Cup racer in 2007 and 2008, planning to ease gradually from the only profession he’d known. Then something surprising happened. Martin stopped worrying about titles and focused on racing. He felt as fulfilled in the car at 48 years old as he did as a smallish, 15-year-old feeling the dirt under his wheels for the first time.

Champs Continued from Page 1B Sowell celebrated the victory Saturday night in Monroe, but only gave himself one day off between seasons. “Normally on Sundays I go over to the school and do a few things to get ready for the week,” he said. “But this Sunday I went to church and then came home and just relaxed.” Sowell says he’s not sure who all will run track, but he “highly recommends it” to anyone that plays football and doesn’t have a spring sport. “It makes you a better athlete,” he said. “In track you work on your technique, plus you’re getting in better condition at the same time. With the combines coming up, you want to be ready to go.” Even though the Redhawks won all their playoff games by at least 12 points, and by an average of 19.3, Sowell said it wasn’t easy. “There’s pressure when one loss sends you home, so even up 15 or 16, I’m still wiping sweat off my face,” he said. “Three or four of those teams had the experience and were prepared well enough to beat us. (State finalist) Goldsboro was one of those teams. When I watched the film, I saw us do a lot of good things in our defensive rotation and against their press. I was more pleased with how we played after I saw the film.”
