Mint Hill forces a game five against Caldwell County

Mint Hill is still alive. After falling behind 0-2 in a best-of-five Area IV playoff series against Caldwell County, Mint Hill has won the last two to push the series to a decisive game five tonight at Caldwell County.
Mint Hill got a little help from mother nature in Thursday’s win at Butler High School. After leading 7-3 in the fifth inning, a thunderstorm forced the game to be called after more than an hour delay.
Brandon McWhirter struck out five in getting the win for Mint Hill.

Morgan said the top priority for the next school board will be selecting a new superintendent to replace Peter Gorman who announced his departure in early June.
“Hiring a superintendent will be the most important decision this board makes,” he said. […]
