Winston-Salem State is ranked fith in the Division II coaches’ poll after a 30-22 win at Concord (W.Va.) last week. The Rams are 2-0 going into Saturday’s Cleveland Football Classic against Morehouse (1-1). WSSU isn’t blowing out nonconference opponents, but winning is winning in any language – no translation needed.


•  Livingstone football is off to a slow start, but freshman Drew Powell has been named CIAA Rookie of the Week for the second week in a row.


Powell (Upper Marlboro, Md.) threw for 305 yards and a touchdown in a 49-17 loss to Catawba last week. He hit 30-of-45 passes and led the Blue Bears with 65 yards rushing.


Livingstone (0-2) has moved the ball with Powell under center – the Blue Bears piled up 396 yards to Catawba’s 399.


Livingstone plays Edward Waters (Fla.) Sept. 15 in Salisbury. Kick-off is 1 p.m. 


• Chowan’s 15th varsity sport, women’s lacrosse, took to the field for the first time this week. The Hawks spent their first practice implementing plays and getting a feel for how to work with one another on the field.  Because lacrosse is a spring sport, the fall season is an opportunity for the team to develop bonds before playing their first game.  


“I am confident in each of their potential on and off the field,” head coach Eryn McCaffrey said.  “We all look forward to our first home game in February and we appreciate the support we have received from the university and the community.”


McCaffrey was an assistant coach at Alderson-Broaddus (West Va.) She played go alkeeper at Saint Andrews Presbyterian and holds the NCAA Division II record for minutes played (3991.29) and is second all time in career saves (880).  


“I am extremely excited to have our inaugural class in place for the first year of our program,” McCaffrey said.  


• An article in the Aug. 30 Post misidentified the status of a lawsuit against the CIAA brought by former assistant commissioner Jeff McLeod. The lawsuit, which alleges wrongful termination and breach of contract, is still in litigation
