@lance-comfort Lance, I agree that the last photo does indeed look like sponge spicules so I believe it is a sponge.  That’s about as much help as I can give you as there are lots of kinds of sponges and my minimal knowledge is in the Ordovician ones.  Are you a member of the North Carolina Fossil Club?  If not, I think you should join as I’d bet there are people there that could be more helpful on these NC fossils.  @lmccall  Another thing to check is the first entry at the top of the What is it? Forum.  It is called “Fossil specialties + contacts.” This has a list of fossil experts and their specialties.  Maybe you can find someone there that could help further.
