RMHS alum helps start new Triangle sports website

If what's going on in Triangle area sports is down your line - whether it's the ACC, minor league baseball or the Hurricanes, then you might check out this new website: The Capital Sports Report at:

Rocky Mount High School alum and ex-Rocky Mount Telegram sports editor Cliff Barnes has joined forces with three of his sports writing collegues, Neil Amato (Durham Herald-Sun,Wilmington Star-News), Dane Huffman (Raleigh News and Observer, and Steve Wiseman ([Columbia, S.C.] The State), in producing the blog-oriented site.

So you can tell - these guys love sports!

The site first appeared on the Internet in May.

Barnes, who has won over 60 state, regional and national writing awards during his career, is a 1978 RMHS grad and culminated his senior year as the sports editor of UNC's Daily Tar Heel newspaper with the coverage of the Dean Smith's first national championship - UNC's dramatic 1982 win over Georgetown in the Louisiana Superdome.
