Weidner shutout sends Lady Trojans to NCHSAA 3rd Round

Sammy Weidner pitches complete game shutout as the Lady Trojans edge Panther Creek 1-0 in the NCHSAA 4A Softball Tournament. Weidner scatters six Catamount hits as Garner (20-2) manages just one Ashton Thomas run for the win. Thomas and Krissy D’Arco have the only Trojan hits but Weidner is untouchable, allowing the lone run to stand. She goes the distance in exactly 100 pitches including 69 strikes. Coach Moe Barbour’s GNRC Champions advance to the 3rd round, their first since 2012 in their second consecutive 20-win season. The 5-seed Garner squad heads to 4-seed S.Alamance Tuesday night, 7PM

Baseball falls to Cardinal Gibbons
The Crusaders send 11 batters to the plate in 7-run first on the way to 14-2 NCHSAA 4A 2nd round win over Garner. Nolan McLean goes 3-3, with double, Xavier Bussey & senior Wellington Guzman have the only Trojan RBIs. The GNRC Champs season 9-game win streak and season end with the home loss at 18-8. The Trojans extend their gratitude to our five seniors, Guzman, Noah Gallogly, Ryan Wheeler, Eric Rodriguez and Noah Giroux for their outstanding service to the Garner program. We wish them all the best!

Soccer season ends in NCHSAA 2nd Round
Kasey Adams goal is the lone score for Coach Enyeart’s Trojan soccer squad in 5-1 loss to Fuquay. The Bengals jump out to 2-0 lead before Adams narrows the gap but Garner (11-7-1) cannot score in the second half in the home loss. The loss ends the Trojan career of captain Lily Schild and Nia Higgs. Our very best to these outstanding young ladies!
