Nanih Waiya also looking for football game
Newton and Newton County aren't the only schools looking for an opponent on the second playing date of the 2002 football season. Nanih Waiya is also in the hunt. The Warriors' 2001 opponent that week, Sturgis, is consolidating with Maben for the 2002-2003 school year and will play Maben's schedule. Nanih Waiya coach Ken McMullan said Raleigh had contacted him about the date, even agreeing to play at Nanih Waiya if everything else works out.
