KANNAPOLIS — A.L. Brown rising senior CJ Gray made the All-Greater Metro Conference team for baseball.

Gray committed to NC State baseball when he was a sophomore, but it looks like the pitcher/shortstop may have decisions to make before Signing Day, as he continues to grow (6-2, 200 pounds).

Gray, the son of former Livingstone football player Charles Gray, is also the Wonders’ football quarterback and he is getting Division I offers in that sport. Charlotte, Eastern Kentucky and Liberty have made football offers, and Gray made a recent visit to Virginia.

The top GMC baseball honors went to Player of the Year Bowen Powell (Hickory Ridge), Pitcher of the Year Jackson Caldwell (Cox Mill) and Coach of the Year Grayson Butler (Cox Mill).


A.L. Brown’s Myla McNeely, a freshman, made the All-GMC softball team.

A.L. Brown’s Kaylee Cook, a former Catawba player, shared GMC Coach of the Year softball honors with Mooresville’s Paul Kitka.

Mooresville’s Macy Crum is the GMC Player of the Year. Mooresville’s Campbell Schaen, who starred for Rowan Little League five years ago, is the GMC Pitcher of the Year,


A.L. Brown’s Jocelyn Salazar was named to the All-GMC team for girls soccer.

Mooresville’s Susie Hudson is the GMC Coach of the Year, while Cox Mill’s Reese DeJong accomplished the unusual feat of being voted Player of the Year and Keeper of the Year for the SPC.


A.L. Brown did not have any players on the All-GMC teams for boys golf and boys tennis.
