GREENSBORO – One could easily get lost in the limelight of playing with the reigning Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) bowler of the year and the 2022-23 preseason MEAC bowler of the year. But sophomore Chloe Newberry is stepping out of the shadows and is making a case for significant postseason honors in her own right.
The North Carolina A&T Aggies, ranked sixth in the nation by the National Tenpin Coaches Association (NTCA) poll, wrapped up Day No. 2 of their annual NCATSU Vernell Stallings Invitational on Saturday at AMF All-Star Lanes with Newberry leading the way individually, totaling 1,063 pins for an average of 212.60 in five traditional games.
Her teammate and the reigning MEAC bowler of the year, Melanie Katen, is close behind with 1,059 total pins for a five-game average of 211.80. Senior Jada Bassette, being celebrated this weekend as the Aggies lone senior, made it three Aggies in the top-10 with 598 pins over three games for a 199.3 average.
The trio helped the Aggies finish 5-0 on Saturday in traditional play, as the Aggies had the second-highest pin total on the day at 4,835. A&T is 9-1 for the tournament and has trampled 9,548 pins over two days to average 191.0. Second-ranked Vanderbilt and the defending Stallings Invitational champions lead the tournament with 9,894 total pins for a 197.9 average. They knocked down 4,899 pins on Saturday, and the Commodores head into Sunday's action 10-0 for the tournament.
Each team will play an additional traditional game to start Sunday's play at 8:30 a.m. to determine the individual champion as the Aggies will go up against ninth-ranked Sam Houston State University (SHSU). The teams will then enter best-of-seven bracket play in Baker format to determine the champion. A&T enters bracket play as the No. 2 seed and will face the 10th-ranked University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES), the No. 3 seed. Vanderbilt is the top seed and will open against fourth-seeded SHSU.
Newberry, who now has a team-leading 26 games of 200 pins or better, opened the day by coming four pins shy of setting a new career. She knocked down 266 pins in a 1,017-816 win over Tusculum. Katen contributed by knocking down 228 pins. A&T then took down No. 22 Tulane, 917-819, behind a 206 from Katen. Senior Lauren Tomaszewski, the MEAC's preseason bowler of the year, came through with a 204.
After bowling a 158 against Tulane, Newberry bounced back with a 211 in a 976-892 win over MEAC rival UMES. But Katen, the reigning MEAC bowler of the week, led the way with a 245. Junior Laura Garcia added a 196. Then, Bassette entered the lineup against Coppin State and made an immediate impact. Bassette celebrated senior festivities by bowling a career-high 226. Garcia added a 203 for her eighth 200-plus game of the season.
A&T closed the day with an exciting 968-953 win over No. 21 Lincoln Memorial. Newberry's 259 helped her move ahead of Katen for the No. 1 spot in the tournament going into Sunday's play. Katen bowled a 192, and Bassette showed up big again with a 205.
The Aggies are 77-25 on the season. A&T is 26-4 since starting the semester 11-15.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Union County wants your help to determine what intersections to repair or improve along its roadways.
Through early May, residents can give public input for the county’s critical intersection program.
The program compiles residents’ feedback to put together a list of more than a dozen intersections to prioritize for planning and fundraising.
This year counts the county’s third time asking for input. In 2015 and 2019, senior planner Bjorn Hansen says the public’s involvement was crucial in selecting the right projects.
“It’s a large county. It’s over 600 square miles. We don’t have perfect information on every single intersection. So, that public input helped us focus more closely to find out if there’s a viable project there,” Hansen said. “Also, the flip side is, there were some locations we thought were problems that the public actually said, ‘No, this isn’t that bad. You should focus your efforts elsewhere.’"
To take part, residents can visit the county’s website and fill out the survey.
The survey informs residents of the ongoing intersection and road projects. Hansen says survey participants can weigh in on intersections already marked as approved for future fundraising and construction, to ensure priorities have not changed in the last four years.
But the potential list of projects will not be a quick fix. If the list gets county commission approval in the fall, it could still take years for the local governments and N.C. Department of Transportation to agree on designs and funding.
“It would take three years from a project identified today to actually receive money for construction, which sounds like a long time, and it is a long time. But the opposite of that is you end up with projects that maybe aren’t well defined,” Hansen said.
The 2015 and 2019 selected projects, usually 15 intersections a cycle, had a 66% success rate of eventually receiving designs and funding.
NCDOT owns almost all the roads in Union County and across the state, according to Hansen. So road projects and construction cannot proceed without its involvement, approval and, at the very least, partial funding, he added.
In the first few weeks of the public input period, Hansen says 1,200 residents have participated. But he urged residents from all parts of the county to participate so the input isn't skewed to one area.
One resident, who’s been pushing for an intersection improvement near his home for years, says he hopes anyone participating in the county’s program packs their patience.
“They will need the patience of Job,” David Allison said.
Spectrum News 1 has chronicled Allison’s personal quest to get the intersection of Potter Road and Pleasant Plains Road replaced for years. In early 2021, Allison gained notoriety for standing at the intersection for hours at a time, with a sign directing people to his website, FixPotterRd.com.
“It’s kind of a labor of love,” Allison said this week.
Allison said the intersection needs a facelift, improvements to traffic flow and congestion, and safety and infrastructure improvements for nearby plots of land.
“Safety — there have been 104 crashes here since the town agreed to repair the road eight years ago. Nothing’s been done," Allison said. "It’s not fair to the property owners who don’t have sewer through here. This is United States of America 2023, and we have a section that doesn’t have sewer?”
For 10 years, the town of Stallings, Union County and NCDOT have hit dozens of delays while planning the project. The town’s website has kept a running list of the project’s twists and turns the last decade, with its last update from April 2022.
“All of these things move very slowly,” Allison added.
While he preaches patience, Allison said it is frustrating that new projects are being considered as his lingers.
“They recently patted themselves on the shoulder, [NC]DOT, for putting a traffic circle in a rural area where there’s been 10 accidents in the last five years. Well, we have 10 accidents in probably every six months. So, that’s frustrating,” Allison said.
When Spectrum News 1 last spoke with Allison and NCDOT in the fall of 2022, the hope was to put the intersection project out for bids this spring or early summer. Now, there has been another delay.
“About a month ago, NCDOT learned there were some utilities that had not been relocated that must be moved before the project can begin. We anticipate advertising the project for bids late this year with construction starting in spring 2024,” wrote NCDOT communications officer Jen Thompson.
In the meantime, Allison said he is working on installing permanent signs on the four pieces of property surrounding the intersection, urging NCDOT to finish the project.

County assessors say there are discrepancies on where Mecklenburg County ends and Union County begins in some neighborhoods.
Changes to the boundary lines could lead to about 300 properties having to switch to a different county, according to the Mecklenburg County assessor. The change would affect a household's school district, voting precinct, property taxes, and emergency services.
Dunn lives on Shannamara Drive. His neighborhood is divided by the Mecklenburg and Union County line. He claimed that the boundary issue was already resolved between Mint Hill, Stallings, and the counties when it was brought up in 2001.
“The people in Union County want to stay in Union County," the mayor said. "I don’t know about the Mecklenburg County folks, but we’re going to fight this and there’s no reason to change the line.”
Dunn worried that the change would mean he and his neighbors would be absorbed by Mecklenburg County.
His neighbor Tish Brown lives on the Mecklenburg County side of the street. Brown said if the line goes the other way to favor Union County, she wouldn’t mind.
“My taxes would go down so that would be okay,” Brown added.
It’s unclear how the line will be redrawn if the counties choose to take up the issue.
Mecklenburg County Assessor Ken Joyner told WCNC Charlotte that both counties and the state are still using slightly different boundaries – meaning the discrepancies weren’t resolved in 2001.
Joyner said he is, "trying to figure out what is the best course of action for our county, Union County to do the same process, and try to determine if we agree with the state line or if we want to take a different course of action.”
When asked why this issue has resurfaced, Joyner said, “I don’t think either county is trying to get more tax money or get more houses or anything like that, it's just trying to resolve an uncertain boundary so that 20 years from now it won't come back up again.”
Town and county leaders are looping in state officials for help and are working to create a map that will show the lines that are up for question and which properties are affected.

***The following is a release from the Pack of Wolves NIL Collective***
Raleigh, NC - Pack of Wolves, LLC, a community of passionate fans, alumni and supporters of NC State University Athletics, has named longtime university supporter and retired BB&T Capital Markets (now Truist Securities) senior banker Charlie Stallings as its first board chairman to advise the organization’s management team as well as facilitate its founding board to fulfill its mission.
Stallings returns from a brief retirement after serving in sales and management for BB&T Capital Markets (now Truist) to serve at the helm of the newly formed board. The Pack of Wolves executive board also includes Haze Lancaster, Jarrett Disbrow, and Scott Wood—among others. The new board will establish solid footing for the NIL collective which offers memberships for both individual and businesses to assist student-athletes in maximizing their name, image and likeness value, creating lasting relationships, and making a positive impact in the community.
"We are grateful that Charlie has agreed to bring his experience and passion to the Pack of Wolves collective,” shares Boo Corrigan, NC State Director of Athletics. “I’m looking forward to seeing the continued growth of the Pack of Wolves under his leadership.”
This is familiar territory for Stallings, who was selected as Poole College of Management’s Distinguished Alumni Award recipient in 2014 and most recently retired as chair of the NC State Foundation board. He also served as a founding member of the NC State Investment board.
“In the ever-changing world of college athletics, you must have a successful NIL program to attract and retain top student-athletes,” notes Stallings. “Wolfpack Nation is stepping up to make this happen. We know this is a world-class institution and we’re developing a NIL program that reflects that mission.”
Stallings boasts a long-running history of fulfilling servant-leadership roles at his alma mater. During his undergraduate tenure at NC State, Stallings was named Sigma Alpha Epsilon president in 1976, Brother of the Year in 1977, and chaired the Muscular Dystrophy Dance Marathon in 1977. His volunteerism has often extended beyond campus, as well, including stints with The Richmond Ballet Board of Trustees, SCAN (Greater Richmond Stop Child Abuse Now) board—which he helped launch and chaired, North Carolina State Club of Richmond, 1708 Gallery, and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

MATTHEWS, N.C. — A new development proposed for a popular area in Matthews is receiving pushback from the neighbors who already live in the area.
The master-planned community would sit on 82 acres at Stallings Road and Idlewild Road not far from the Interstate 485 interchange.
The land is now mostly undeveloped, but the new proposal would include single-family housing, townhomes and apartments, as well as office, retail and restaurant space.
Locals say the area is already bustling and so busy that opponents of the project argue the roads can’t handle more people living nearby.
“It seems like in Matthews all of a sudden, if there’s land, we must build and it must be high-density,” neighbor Ginger Monette said during a Matthews Town Commission meeting Monday night. “I feel like every time I go on a new road there’s a massive apartment complex. It’s like, I don’t even want to live here anymore.”
On Monday night, the project’s developer -- Pappas Properties -- said it took feedback from a public hearing last month and has hopefully addressed some of the concerns.
The group said it worked with the North Carolina Department of Transportation to incorporate plans for a roundabout at Davis Trace Drive and a relocated Stallings Road. It also proposed plans to widen Idlewild Road.
“I’m scared to death of my wife to go down to the end of Stallings Road and turn at the end of Idlewild (Road),” said Chip McKenzie, a neighbor of the land. “A traffic circle, a traffic circle would make a lot of difference.”
The developer also said it has adjusted plans to have less apartments and less traffic.
The Matthews Town Commission would need to approve a rezoning of the land before the project can move forward. No decision was made on Monday.
Residents will have to wait until after the new year to find out if the town will approve the rezoning that could pave the way for the development. The town commission chose to continue the discussions in its January meeting.
