Last week, Phenom Hoops travelled to Goldsboro NC to watch Wayne Country Day. The Chargers roster is filled with talent and youth. Coach Faulk and his team will make a ton of noise this year in North Carolina. Even with the loss of Jaden Cooper, this team still has a chance to make a run to the state title game again this year.
