Regular-season finales feature high stakes
This week is the final week of the regular season, and there’s still much to play for.
High Point Central in the Piedmont Triad 4A and T.W. Andrews in the PAC-6 2A look to win conference titles. For the Bison, it would be their first since 2004 while several teams look to lock in playoff positioning.
Ledford could jump to as high as No. 2 in the Mid-Piedmont 3A with a win, while Thomasville and East Davidson look to finish 2-3 in the Central Carolina 2A. Bishop McGuinness would also be the No. 3 from the Northwest 1A with a win.
The rest of the teams, mainly Glenn, Ragsdale and Trinity, seek to improve their wild-card prospects and then hope to see their names when the brackets are released this weekend.
Also, High Point Christian Academy, in the NCISAA playoffs for the second year in a row, faces a rematch with Christ School in Arden following the Greenies’ 31-18 win earlier this season.
