CHAPEL HILL— Emily Carver from Enka High School and Jefferson Boaz from East Surry High School have been named recipients of the NCHSAA Performance of the Week award. Each week two athletes in North Carolina High School Athletic Association competition are selected for this award from nominations received from coaches, media, and school administrators.
Carver scored 39 points in a win over Brevard on Wednesday and followed that up by pouring in 43 points against Asheville on Friday. In 3 games last week Carver averaged 32 points, and 9 rebounds as the Jets moved to 6-0 on the season.
Boaz threw for 478 yards and seven scores, completing 33 of 42 passes on his way to being named the 1AA Championship Game Most Valuable Player. Boaz set new state championship game neutral site records for most passing yards in a game, most completions in a game and most touchdown passes in a game as East Surry knocked off Tarboro 56-28 to win the program’s first state football championship.
Weekly recipients will be recognized on the NCHSAA Website and social media pages. They will also be honored at a banquet for all recipients from this year in April. The deadline for nominations is each Monday at 5 p.m through the online form that can be found here.
