Southeast claims school’s first win with soccer romp

Southeast Alamance’s boys’ soccer team won the first competition in school history with Monday night’s 9-0 victory at Eastern Alamance.

Bailey Frye, a junior forward, scored the first goal for the new school. He played for Southern Alamance prior to the redistricting.

“The boys played awesome and got the result we wanted,” coach Jackson Brooks said.

Frye and Edgar Carbajal each finished with three goals. Aiden Hayes and Diego Lopez had the other goals.

The first goal came when Carbajal controlled the ball and delivered a pass back to Frye for a tap in.

“When the first goal went in, all the boys were going crazy,” Brooks said.

Goalkeeper Justin Whitfield was credited with the shutout.



Southeast’s first volleyball match didn’t go as well as soccer. It took place in Eastern Alamance’s gym at the same time as the soccer game.

The Eagles won 25-13, 25-11, 24-26, 25-18.

Eastern posted the first five points of the match before the Stallions got on the board.

The teams played in sauna-like conditions on a steamy evening. A pair of industrial-sized fans were in the gym’s corners in attempts to lower the temperature.

It was a notable beginning of the season for Eastern, which won just one of its first six matches last year.

  • Williams dropped its debut under first-year coach Larkin Herring with Monday night’s loss in five sets (22-25, 25-20, 25-15, 13-25, 15-12) to visiting Rockingham County.
  • Western Alamance’s first match under new coach Meagan Nadeau came in Tuesday night’s 22-25, 25-19, 27-25, 25-22 non-league road victory against Eastern Randolph in Ramseur.
