Cahill heads to St. Andrews

WILSON -- Goldsboro native Darian Cahill, the son of Crystal and Jay Cahill, has signed a national letter-of-intent to continue his basketball career at St. Andrews Presbyterian College.

Cahill played his prep basketball at Greenfield and helped the Knights capture the regular-season and tournament titles in Coastal Plains Independent 1-A Conference play. Greenfield lost in the N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association 1-A championship game.

St. Andrews finished 7-20 this past season, including a 3-17 worksheet against NCAA Division II Conference Carolinas opposition.

Cahill has not selected a major.
