"It's a pretty big honor for these
kids to be selected out of about 63
kids," Aldcrson said Monday.
Brian Aldcrson, who graduated

by New Hanover's Trot Nixon and
Laney's Joey Pyrtlc.
Other pitchers include Scott Fus
sell of North Lenoir, Terry Williams
of Midway and Jason Ramsey of
Southwest Onslow. Ramsey, a ju
nior, is 25-1 the last two seasons in

to bow out and let one of the assis
tants take over."

al team this year arc Tom McMahan
