North Carolina High School Athletic Association

Schools Compile Impressive Streak


CHAPEL HILL- The North Carolina High School Athletic Association announced today that 12 member schools in the NCHSAA have put together an outstanding performance streak, although it is not based on wins and losses or championships.

The schools have been without an ejection in any sport for five consecutive academic years. Each of the 12 will be recognized at the NCHSAA regional meetings held across the state later this month.

The schools include Ocracoke and Chocowinity Southside in Region 1; North Duplin, Pamlico and South Lenoir in Region 2; South Columbus in Region 4; Kernersville Glenn in Region 5; Gastonia Ashbrook in Region 6; Morganton North Carolina School for the Deaf, Watauga and West Wilkes in Region 7; and Nantahala in Region 8. There was no school in Region 3 to go ejection free for the five-year period, from 2005-06 through 2009-10.

The guidelines record ejections for unsportsmanlike acts such as fighting, taunting, profanity, obscene gestures or disrespectfully addressing or contacting officials.
