FRSA caps Diving League season
The Faculty-Staff Recreation Associations Summer Diving League wrapped up its season last Saturday with a championship meet and ice cream social at The Farm.
The Farm remains the lone Chapel Hill Summer Swim league program that includes a separate diving program. In addition to regular meets, open to any pre-teen or school-age diver in the area, the FRSAs diving league also offered day and evening camp sessions in June and July.
The Summer League, which is in its 20th season this year, includes divers as well known as Olympian Nick McCrory among its alumni.
Molly Harkavy and Wesley Cochran served as head coaches of the FRSA dive teams, under the leadership of league founder Becky Binney.
East Chatham takes second place in state championships
The Southern Johnston Baseball Associations South All-star team captured the state Tar Heel Leagues Inc. Midget League (ages 9-10) title with a 5-2 win over East Chatham.
The championship game July 28 in Williamston came after a string of three straight mercy rule wins against Lenoir County, West Chatham and Rocky Mount.
Their pitcher (Tyler Johnson) did a great job today, threw a heck of a game, SJBA South coach Jason Parker said. Our defense gave us a shot to get it done.
Johnson threw a complete game but fell victim to a South big inning in the fifth. Patrick Allen singled with the bases loaded, forcing Andre Garcia home.
Cameron Massengill followed with a deep fly to right field that scored both Parker Wood and Chase Carroll for a 5-1 lead.
East Chatham came up with a brief rally in the bottom of the sixth, putting two runners on base for Landon Johnson, who singled home a run with two outs. However, Souths defense ended the tournament.
East Chatham reached the state tournament by winning the District 3 championship in June. East Chathams 8-and-under team and its 12-under club both took second place in the district tournament. The 8-unders finished sixth in the state tournament, while the 12-under team finished in seventh place in the state.
