From the student section: Cox Mill's first year comes to an end

Logan Albers is a student at Cox Mill High School and a member of the cross country team. He shares his thoughts on Cox Mill athletics in "From the student section."

Cox Mill sports have come to a close after a great season of hard work and learning.

Cox Mill golf concluded their season at the Western Regional meet at Salisbury after qualifying for the match following an impressive conference run. Eric Baumann, Brandon Cordell and Garett Ray were named all-conference. Austin Albers and Tyler Untz represented the Chargers as well in the regional meet.

Boys' and girls' track concluded their regular season with the conference meet at Mount Pleasant last Tuesday and Wednesday. With the sun blaring and rubber track, the meet was energized and tensions were high. The girl’s 4x400, 4x200, and 4x100 relay teams all finished second. Tori Elliot placed second in the 100 meters.

Congratulations to the Charger softball team on their come from behind victory against Mount Pleasant last Wednesday. The Lady Chargers were behind going into the seventh inning and rallied for three runs to beat the top-seeded Tigers 5-4 on Senior night. It was a great win and a total team effort. On Friday, the girls defeated Hickory Ridge by the score of 7-1 and look forward to Wednesday’s conference tournament.

Cox Mill Baseball fell to Mount Pleasant in the last game of the South Piedmont Conference tournament on May 4 and completed their season with a 5-20 overall record and a 1-13 record in the SPC. The boys worked tremendously hard over the season and have grown and learned together as a whole, fighting many close games down to the wire.

All teams worked impressively hard and saw major improvement in many aspects of play and preparation. All athletes and coaches now look to the 2010-2011 seasons and hope to make the off-season productive and profitable in the long run.

Congratulations as well to the Cox Mill girls soccer team, which finished with an incredible 17-5 record overall, 11-3 conference mark, and went to the second round of the NCHSAA playoffs, losing to the state's third ranked team after giving them one of their most difficult tests of the season. Well done, ladies, and congratulations to head coach Christa Mooney and assistant Doug Cerasi!
