Trinity | Boys Basketball | Sophomore Payne produced a couple of strong outings as the Bulldogs split two Piedmont Athletic Conference games. It began with the sophomore guard’s 20-point effort in a 53-46 decision against rival Wheatmore. That pushed the Bulldogs’ record to 8-0. Later in the week, Payne racked up 18 points in a 61-54 loss to Uwharrie Charter Academy. Ashton Troutman, a previous winner of the honor this season, had 27 points in that game for UCA.
