PIKEVILLE -- Charles B. Aycock's Zach Wright went 4-for-4 with a home run in the Golden Falcons' 18-4 win at home over Greene Central in five innings on Friday.

In Sunday's edition, it was incorrectly reported that Jeremy Interrante competed for the Eastern Wayne boys track team on Thursday. The report should have stated Matthew Interrante claimed the 3200 meters. We apologize for the error.
