J-M alum Fuquay signs to play college baseball

Camden Fuquay, a former Jordan-Matthews left-handed pitcher, has committed to play baseball at Bryan College in Dayton, Tennessee.

Fuquay, who also played basketball for the Jets, had originally planned to attend East Carolina and play club baseball before a few late offers popped up. In his Jordan-Matthews career, he made 28 appearances on the mound and compiled a 2.15 ERA, according to MaxPreps.

Bryan is a private Christian school and competes in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). Other NAIA schools include North Carolina’s Montreat College and St. Andrews University, both of which compete in the Appalachian Athletic Conference with Bryan.

Northwood honors senior basketball players

Northwood had a memorable 2019-20 boys basketball season, going 13-1 in Big 8 conference play and making a run to the NCHSAA 3A semifinals. Its eight seniors were a big part of that.

The Chargers had their drive-by ceremony on June 10, and the boys basketball team posted pictures honoring each of its graduating players on Twitter.

The list: Justin Brower, Jalen McAfee-Marion, Sebastian Mehringer, Jack Thompson, Aaron Ross, Tommy Ocariza, Deuce Powell and Alex Snively.

Chatham Charter’s Hamilton, Brown, Carter sign

A day after it completed its three-week video series honoring athletes, Chatham Charter held a signing day for three seniors.

Jordan Hamilton signed to play basketball at Wake Tech Community College in Raleigh; Jessica Brown signed to run track at the University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, Kentucky; and Noah Carter signed to play baseball at Catawba Valley Community College in Hickory. Hamilton and Brown both signed in Chatham Charter’s gymnasium and were joined by their parents; Carter signed on the baseball field with his father and grandmother in attendance.

Muddogs no longer in Ramseur

The Deep River Muddogs, a team in the Old North State League, will play home games in High Point’s BB&T Point Stadium. It’s a change from their original plan of playing in Craven Stadium in Ramseur, just 15 minutes from Siler City. Muddogs coach Riley Nelson said there were logistical issues, and league co-comissioner/director of operations Alec Allred added the stadium ultimately “closed for the season.”

The Muddogs, who moved to 3-0 Monday, are playing a four-game series against the Guilford Lumberkings this week. They’ll play a double-header Tuesday in High Point, with games at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. (both past the Chatham News + Record’s press time).
