"I need him (Cabrera) to lead by example as a senior and his work rate,"Summers said,his voice trail- ing."I'm excited… and I think we can develop something that Eastern Wayne hasn't seen in a long time." Just in a different way,of course, which is good. Summers FALLSPORTSOUTLOOKS GIRLS' TENNIS • So… who's it gonna be? That is the question being weighed by Eastern Wayne girls' tennis coach Craig Hassell,who must replace five letter-winners this fall with a bevy of new faces that vary by class and degree of varsity experience. "We're young,but we have three players that were in the top six last year,"Hassell said recently. "We're seeing some good things." One of which is senior Bella Bowen,who returns after compiling a 17-8 mark a sea- son ago. VOLLEYBALL • Call it the Big Three,if you will. The trio of Brianna Autman,Emily Newsome and Alyssa Jackson powered the Lady Dubs to a record of 14-9 last season, their best mark since 2007. But will the encore look the same? Perhaps,especially if second-year head coach Anna Hajjar can coax the same pro- duction out of her triumverate,which filed 333 kills,86 aces and a hitting percentage of .398 during the team's lively run back to relevancy. Stay tuned. FOOTBALL • No. 1 is done — at New Hope,anyway. Such is the case for prospective senior Malyk Williams,who is transferring his con- siderable skill set to the Episcopal School in Jacksonville,Florida. A one-cut scoring burst waiting to happen, Williams lined up all over the field for Dubs' head coach Leander Oates last fall,present- ing matchup nightmares at every turn. Just ask Goldsboro,whom he cooked for 260 all-purpose yards and a pair of death- knell scores in a 21-7 victory. The 919 will miss you,sir. CROSS COUNTRY • The Warriors' coaching staff may search the halls for some runners before the season begins. Just four boys ran a year ago,while the girls had enough com- petitors to post a team score during some meets. Eastern Wayne,like the rest of the conference,will probably chase New Bern and D.H. Conley for league supremacy. Continued from 6 "We've got a whole lot of midfield- ers and no forwards,so over the course of the year I'm going to try to convert some midfield possession players into more of a striker,"Lewis said."We've got above-average speed, not superior,not excellent but we're not slow.I think the stamina at the beginning (of the season) is going to hurt us more than anything. "Once the season goes on,hopeful- ly someone is going to step up." League Continued from 15 strengthen different muscles needed depending on the course — flat or hilly — that they see during the season. It's all about improvement. "We just try to break it up,never do the same thing twice because I don't want to make it boring,"Glass said of his daily practice plans."It seems to work for us.The biggest thing is to never go backwards,always put your best out there.As long as you're try- ing your best and doing your best, that's all you can ask for." Oh yeah. Prepare for the storm. Grows News-Argus file photo Wayne Country Day's Cole Atwood Follow us on Twitter:@newsargussports
