ASHEVILLE – Asheville High junior Sophia Treakle knew with or without the confirmation. Yes, she shot up an index finger for dramatic effect when the official announcement finally came over N.C. A&T’s loudspeakers. But Treakle was well cognizant of the time, down to the last millisecond, needed for a state record in the 300-meter hurdles at the NCHSAA 3-A track meet on May 16.

NEW BERN, N.C. — At the convergence of the Trent and Neuse Rivers in the wetlands of eastern North Carolina sits this town of 29,000 people. It has been around for nearly 300 years, but has never had a reputation as a breeding ground for professional athletes. One of its proudest athletic achievements came last year, when the New Bern Bears defeated Charlotte Independence for the Class 4A high school state football championship, after which the town threw a parade.

I have truly enjoyed running NCRunners.com for the last 22 months. The site has taken off and it has been amazing getting to know so many athletes, coaches, meet directors, parents, and more. I am not completely disappearing, as I will still be helping out with various aspects of the site, mostly behind the scenes. Who's taking over?
