New track record
The North Mecklenburg 1600-meter relay team broke a 29-year-old record March 27 at the Queen City Relays at Myers Park High School. The girls' relay squad, which included Briana Brazile, Lindsey Lang, Alexis Jordan and Trikeria Johnson broke the record set in 1981 (by Menchville High, Va.), with a time of 3:59.16. The same quartet also won the 800-meter relay run.
Two Lake Norman area basketball players showed they were among Charlotte's best at the Charlotte Pro-Am All-Star Classic on March 27.

North Mecklenburg's Lauren Lewis had a similar day for the East girls' team, who won 80-72 in overtime. Lewis was named MVP for her team after scoring 15 points, including back-to-back three-pointers to open the overtime period.
