Over the weekend at the annual North Carolina Baseball Coaches Association convention, the North Henderson Baseball program was awarded “Region 8 Field of the Year” beating out approximately 30 schools.

Knights Head Coach Justin King received the award alongside his assistant coaches Friday night in Greensboro.

“A lot of hard work from a bunch of people going back to 1993. I couldn’t be more excited about it. Thanks to all my coaches and players and a special thanks to Turf Mountain Sod,” said King. He will be entering his 6th year as the Knights Head Coach.

North is returning nine varsity lettermen, eight of which are starters from the 2016 team. They finished 14-12 advancing to the second round of NCHSAA 3A Playoffs.

North Baseball will start practice February 13th. The regular season schedule has not been released yet.
