CLIMAX, NC – The Jesse Carson Cougars played a tight defensive game and got just enough offense to hold off Asheboro 51-40. With a senior class that now boasts 96 career wins, the Cougars claimed the program’s first Women’s Basketball State Championship.
Carleigh Perry turned it on in the second half, when her team needed it the most, knocking in 19 points and grabbing nine rebounds on her way to being named the Kay Yow 3A Women’s Basketball State Championship MVP.
TRINITY, NC – The Millbrook Wildcats are used to overtime, at least that is probably what they are telling themselves after winning their last three playoff games in overtime to capture the 4A State Championship. Millbrook held off a hard charge from Ardrey Kell to win the game 67-65 in an extra frame during a game that saw 11 ties and 10 lead changes.
TRINITY, NC – Wilson Prep won the school’s first NCHSAA State Championship in any sport, taking down Lincoln Charter 65-58 in an exciting game that saw Wilson Prep pull away late. Up 57-54 with 1:55 to go, the Tigers used an 8-0 run to ice the game.
Devyn Bullock was the floor leader for Wilson Prep. His 13 points and seven rebounds were a catalyst to the victory. Bullock was selected as the Charlie Adams 1A Men’s Basketball Championship Most Valuable Player for his efforts.
CLIMAX, NC – In the highest scoring State Championship Game in the 108-year history of the NCHSAA State Basketball Championships, Farmville Central’s pace and athleticism proved too much for Hendersonville in the 2A Men’s Championship Game as the Jaguars raced past the Bearcats 113-98. The Jaguars secured their third straight State Championship including last year’s Co-Championship that they shared with Shelby when the season was halted due to COVID-19.
CLIMAX, NC – Shelby built an early lead just to watch Farmville Central whittle it down to one at the half. However, the Golden Lions responded in the second half, stretching their lead out to as many as 16 on their way to defeating Farmville Central 77-62 to win the 2A Women’s Basketball State Championship.
Maraja Pass was outstanding in all facets of the game for Shelby, engineering the offense masterfully from the point guard position. She scored 31 points, and had 8 assists on her way to earning the Kay Yow 2A Most Valuable Player Award in the game.
TRINITY, NC – The Murphy Bulldogs got a pair of 22-point performances from Torin Rogers and Sarah Pullium to boost the Bulldogs to the program’s fourth State Championship and a 76-34 victory over Princeton. The win gave Murphy back-to-back Championships after sharing last year’s title with Weldon when the Board of Directors awarded Co-State Championships to the Regional Champions as the State Finals were postponed and then ultimately cancelled due to COVID-19.
TRINITY, NC – Leah Barringer exploded for 32 points on 10 for 12 shooting and a perfect seven of seven at the line to lead Z.B. Vance to a 74-38 win over Garner and their second straight state championship. Barringer was chosen as the Kay Yow 4A State Championship MVP for her performance.
CLIMAX, NC – Weddington pushed their way past Northwood 56-47 thanks to a quartet of players in double figures led by junior guard Chase Lowe’s 14 points.
