Area Sports Briefs: Salisbury’s Honeycutt All-State
From staff reports
Salisbury junior midfielder Julia Honeycutt has been named to the All-State team for 2A public schools by the NC Soccer Coaches Association.
Honeycutt, who has committed to the Charlotte 49ers, is the fourth girl in program history to get that honor. Emma Miller, Karen Presnell and Madison Kennedy were All-State.
Salisbury seniors Ceci Cardelle and Katie Bullock joined Honeycutt on the all-region team.
West Rowan sophomore Lejla Mehmedovic, Carson junior Hannah Smith and South Rowan freshman Madison Henry made the all-region team.
Hickory Ridge’s Maddie Capel, Northwest Cabarrus’ Kursten von Klahr and Cox Mill’s Mary Perkins made the All-State team for 3A public schools.
Kannapolis was washed out at Hickory and plans a 4 p.m. doubleheader today.
Rowan County’s game at Hickory was rained out on Monday.
Eric Tyler (South Rowan) had two hits in ECU’s final game on Sunday and finished his career with 225 hits.
Charlotte’s Colton Laws (Carson) finished the season with a 7-2 record and a 1.87 ERA. Laws struck out 94 while walking 13 in 96 1/3 innings and was first team All-Conference USA.
Laws was a sophomore in eligibility, but he’s draft-eligible as a 21-year-old and could be chosen in June’s MLB draft.
Western Carolina’s Hunter Gibbons (West Rowan) was second team All-Southern Conference.
Gibbons led the Catamounts with nine homers, 47 hits, 16 doubles, 40 RBIs and a .318 batting average.
Jordan Jankowski (Catawba) was the winning pitcher for the Houston Astros on Sunday for his first MLB victory.
Houston scored 11 runs in the top of the eighth inning to erase an 8-2 deficit and went on to win against Minnesota, 16-8.
Jankowski relieved in the fifth and survived the sixth and seventh despite allowing two homers and four runs. The Astros’ big eight inning made him a winner, even though his night on the mound was done. Luke Gregerson pitched the eighth and ninth.
