  • Raising the Barr for Rowan golf

    Charlie Barr was a local sports celebrity at age 13, a champion of the Country Club of Salisbury’s prestigious Crowder-Dorsett Memorial Labor Day 4-Ball Golf Tournament.
    That victory came in 2016, when Barr teamed up with Troy Beaver, who was 9 years older.
    It’s not easy coming up with an encore after a performance like that.
    “Winning at 13 was unbelievable,” Barr said. “My next-door neighbor and one of my best friends is Michael Childress, and he was on a winning Labor Day team when he was 14. So I edged him out as far as being the youngest winner. There’s nothing better than that.”

  • Cannon School seniors organize shows for residents of Gardens of Taylor Glen

    Cannon School’s capstone projects have produced a lot of good over the years.  In 2016, David Riley created the Angel in the Outfield Walk-A-Thon with all the money going to Levine Children’s Hospital specifically for childhood cancer research.

    There have been countless other students who have made impacts with their capstone projects whether it be raising money with bake sales or other things, but every once in a while, projects like David’s garner a lot of attention.

    Noelle Nieske and Kate Nelson were like all the other juniors at Cannon School at the end of the 2018-19 school year. They were given the guidelines for their capstone projects and really started to plan. This is something they knew was coming. Every student at Cannon School has to complete these projects before they graduate, so they are aware of what they will have to do even as freshmen.

  • Cannon School shuts the door on Charlotte Latin’s title hopes, wins NCISAA rings

    Cannon School coach Che’ Roth said he would rather not have played Charlotte Latin at Charlotte Latin Saturday to win a state championship.

    “That wasn’t exactly our choice,” Roth said after watching his team beat the Hawks 71-69 in the N.C. 4A Independent Schools final. “I would’ve liked to have played them on a neutral site, just because Latin’s so good here, and we’ve just been here a month ago, but beggars can’t be choosers. We’re just glad to have been here and have come away with a really hard-fought win.”

    Cannon (27-6) finished the year on a nine-game win streak and won its first state championship in 14 years. The Cougars denied Charlotte Latin (22-8) its first title in 16 years.

    “I know we have played a lot of young kids, and we played a lot of young kids last year, for a reason,” Roth said after his team, No. 6 in the Observer Sweet 16 defeated CISAA rival Charlotte Latin 79-64 Friday night at home. “It’s paid off, but we’re still young.
