At first, Southern Nash’s Zonovan Knight tried to play it cool.

“I’m going to try and see if I can remember all of them,” he said on Wednesday, an hour after his most recent Division I football scholarship offer.

Then came the nine schools, each in rapid succession, each…

Winners of three games in a row coming into Tuesday night, Rocky Mount Academy entered its home game against Henderson Kerr-Vance playing its best basketball of the season.

The problem: so was the opponent.

HKV, which improved to 15-0 and 7-0 in the conference on Tuesday with the win, blitzed the…

The whiteboard inside Northern Nash’s locker room was blank Friday.

As it turns out, only the weather could slow down the Rocky Mount and Nash Central boys’ basketball teams.

The Gryphons (9-2), who were playing some of their best basketball of the season before the snow and ice came, haven’t played since 2017 -- or, in a less dramatic-sounding metric,…

Almost two weeks after the fact, the same sentiment sticks for Northern Nash coach Henry Drake: The Knights should have entered winter break undefeated.

As far back as November, Drake acknowledged the goal was to be 11-0 by Christmas, and, to his credit, Northern Nash was 10 games and about three-…
