Regional title sends Brock boys to state


Lane Southern and Ewell had buckets and Tré Ewell added his fourth three-pointer to put Brock up 34-26 late in the third. Brock put the lead back into double figures with a Hummel bucket midway through the fourth.

Tre Ewell paced Brock with 24 points with Lance Ewell addng nine. Morgan tossed in 20 to lead Ponder.

Brock 58, Chapel Hill 47

In Friday night’s semifinal, the Eagles withstood a furious fourth-quarter rally by a very game Red Devil squad, which cut a 17-point deficit down to seven with less than a minute left.

Brock led 49-32 on a pair of three pointers by Dylan Carrigan, who was scoreless through the first three quarters, with just under four minutes to go. Leading scorers Tré Ewell and Lance Ewell spent the bulk of the second half on the bench in foul trouble, which hurt the squad offensively in the eyes of Coach Jeff Bell.

“Our bench played very well late in the game. Guys like Luke (Hummel), Micah (Thornton and Dylan really stepped up because with the Ewells out, it hurts what we can do offensively,” Bell said.

Chapel Hill (27-7) clawed its way back into the fray, hitting six straight shots down the stretch to get within 54-47 with 50 seconds left. It was Tré Ewell that came through down the stretch with four free throws after the Red Devils were forced to foul. After hitting the six consecutive shots from the floor, Chapel Hill missed their last two.

The unranked visitors from Mount Pleasant gave Brock fits early. Three Lance Ewell buckets put Brock up 6-3 but Chapel Hill forced Brock into 25 percent shooting in the opening eight minutes to take a 9-8 lead after one.

Coming out of the timeout, Brock opened the second quarter on a 9-0 run, using three pointers by Tré Ewell and Luke Hummel and baskets by Thornton and Lance Ewell to take a 19-10 lead and force Chapel Hill Coach Ron Hanks to take a respite.

  • Summer athletic camps — July/August

    Staff Report

    Summer athletic camps become a bit more “meaningful” in the late days of July and into  August, at least for some high school and middle school athletes.

    In most cases, the youth football camps include grades 6 through 8, and though there is no contact involved, some of the instructors of he camp may be getting a preview of the talent coming their way in just a few short weeks.

    Team volleyball camps, stretching from grades 4 through 12, provides a segway for many of the campers who will soon be entering workouts for the impending volleyball season.
