I have confirmed with two independent sources that David Combs, a Southern Wayne grad who played baseball at LCC and Mount Olive College, is the new baseball coach at South Lenoir. More details shortly.
Still no word on who is going to take the South Lenoir football job … but it’s not as pressing as baseball, which begins in a few weeks.
Congrats to Coach Combs on getting the position — although I’m still perplexed why former Kinston coach Jason Wade didn’t really get a solid shot for it. I’m also perplexed why Paul Novicki didn’t make a serious run for it. Ryan Herman should have something for Wednesday’s paper about it — and the Hermanator will have ALL the details!
