Rowan County has Super Saturday in prep sports

Rowan County had a Super Saturday in high school sports, winning individual and team state championships.
North Rowan’s boys track team won its second straight 1A title behind Johnny Oglesby’s three individual state titles. Robert Steele, a legend in track circles, saw his Cavaliers edge Science & Math 79-75 at the event held at N.C. A&T in Greensboro.
The field events were the key for North as senior Oglesby’ the meet’s landslide winner for MVP, won a state title in the long jump and followed that with wins in the 100 and 300 hurdles.
Teaunna Cuthbertson ended a brilliant career by winning the long jump for the North Rowan girls, who finished fourth in the state.
About an hour down the road in Cary, Salisbury freshman Michael Ogden was claiming the 2A state title in singles by downing South Iredell’s Patrick Hensley in impressive fashion, 6-4, 6-0. Hensley was the state runner-up in last year’s championships.
Ogden survived a tough three-set match in a morning semifinal, dropping the first set to Ray Webb Parker of Shelby but rallying to win 1-6, 6-1, 7-5.
Rowan County produced yet another champion in Chad Hoskins, who lives in Spencer but attends Reynolds in Winston-Salem. He teamed with Paul Yamane to win the 4A doubles crown beating Greensboro Grimsley’s Will Albright and Graham Pearson 6-3, 6-1.
