WINSTON-SALEM MOUNT TABOR TAKES WOMEN’S CROWN



CHAPEL HILL -- By the slimmest of margins, Southeast Raleigh nipped New Bern to win the team title in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association men’s 4-A indoor track and field championships Saturday night at the Eddie Smith Indoor Arena on the University of North Carolina campus.



Southeast Raleigh won the title by 0.5 points and what boiled down to 0.89 seconds. New Bern won the final event of the night, the four by 400 relay, in a state record time of 3:21.79. But Southeast Raleigh finished fourth, 0.89 seconds out of fifth, and that was just enough to nip the Bears in the team standings.



Southeast Raleigh scored 62.5 points to 62 for New Bern. Morrisville Green Hope was well back in third with 31 points, followed by West Charlotte (28) and a tie for fifth at 23 points between Charlotte Z.B. Vance and East Forsyth. There were 43 schools scoring points in the men’s competition.



New Bern’s Fuqwaun Greene was the MVP, winning the 300 and finishing second in the 55 while running a leg of the four by 400.



Lincoln Carr of Fayetteville Pine Forest won a pair of individual titles, winning both the triple jump and the long jump.



Winston-Salem Mount Tabor won the women’s title with 50 points to 46 to runner-up Matthews David Butler. Southeast Raleigh and Charlotte Myers Park tied for third with 43 points and West Charlotte was fifth at 31.



A total of 41 schools scored points in the women’s meet.
