Post-season Honors

Local high school athletes earn spots on N&O All-Metro teams

March 3, 2014 

Durham Academy senior Trey Harris had a banner day at the N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association state championship swim meet last month.

Harris set a school record in the 100-yard butterfly with a time of 51.58 seconds to lead the Cavaliers to a fifth-place finish. He also set a school record in the 200-yard individual medley of 1:57:19 to finish second.

That’s one of the reasons Harris was named to the 2014 The News & Observer All-Metro swim teams, which were announced this week. Emily Sarratt, a senior at Trinity was named to the N&O’s girls team, while the N.C. School of Science & Math’s Jacob Vosburgh made the boys team.

The All-Metro wrestling team was also announced, featuring five state champions like Riverside’s junior Jaquon Sowell, who won the NCHSAA’s 160-pound championship last month. He’s joined on the All-Metro team by Riverside teammate Gary Whitaker.
