Rose May 3 at Southern Wayne Eastern Wayne Youth movement Nine members of Eastern Wayne's 17-man outfit take up residence in either the freshman or sopho- more class, but that doesn't mean head coach Walk- er Gourley will spend the bulk of this season scratching his head. That's because the group played in 65 combined games last spring, and will be led by Ginn and sen- ior Jay Wiseman ā€” quality ball players who will help the younger set maximize its potential. Make no mistake, Gourley's second team will have plenty of gusto. March 13 at D.H. Conley March 14 vs. Greene Central March 16 at New Bern March 20 vs. South Central March 23 at C.B. Aycock Worth the price Barring the unforeseen, East Carolina University commit Landon Ginn is sure to build on a freshman campaign that saw him hit .406 with 28 hits and 11 RBI in 69 at bats. Defensively, expect the sophomore to flash his versatility for head coach Walker Gourley this spring, logging plenty of time at the hot cor- ner and on the mound, where he made 12 appearances a season ago.

Known in area cir- cles primarily for his playmaking ability on the basketball court, it will be interesting to see how the sopho- more helps bolster a pitching staff that sur- rendered 5.14 runs per game a season ago. For Case, finding motivation won't be a problem ā€” simply put, he competes as hard as any athlete in Wayne County. Managing it in shorts bursts, however, may very well define his contribution. Game on, as they say. GNA | CASEY MOZINGO Wesley Case Today vs. North Lenoir
