We were at the Northern Guilford-Smith baseball game last night and we will have video on that first-ever game and the first-ever win for the Nighthawks up here on the site later today. It was history in the making when NG topped the Golden Eagles 10-2 at the new Nighthawks’ Nest out on Spencer Dixon Road.
The field and lights looked great and Northern has a top-notch facility and from what I’m hearing the Smiths(Johnny and Justin) have put in many hours working to get that field ready to play on. Johnny said he got there at 8am on game day with a 6pm scdeduled first-pitch. Smith Marketing has kicked in quite a few dollars along with Chris Gunter and Gunter’s Conveinence Store on the scoreboard to make NG a first class operation for their first year of baseball with 9th and 10th graders, many of whom were cut from their Middle School teams last year.
Baseball games scheduled today but they will probably called off because of rain:
WS Carver at SWG
High Point Central at Lexington
SEG at Trinity
NEG at Eastern Guilford
Northwest Guilford at WG
Next week for Northwest Guilford in baseball:
5:30PM Boys Junior Varsity Baseball Southwest Guilford High School Home
6:00PM Boys Varsity Baseball Southwest Guilford High School Away
5:30PM Boys Junior Varsity Baseball Southwest Guilford High School Away
6:00PM Boys Varsity Baseball Southwest Guilford High School Home
*****Word on the street yesterday afternoon was that Northwest Guilford boy’s varsity basketball coach, Mike Everett, either was fired or stepped down on Thursday and is out as coach at NWG.*****
+++++This just in and you heard it here first, as is usually the case, or I would like to think so;
Mike Everett resigned last week. Mike is a Western Guilford/HPU grad and we wish him and his wife Nancy and their kids all the luck in the world.+++++
