CHAPEL HILL— Alliyah Chaplin of Chapel Hill High School and Sage Surratt of East Lincoln High School have been named winners of the NCHSAA Performance of the Week awards, powered by Time Warner Cable Sports Channel with Jersey Mike’s Subs®.
Each week two athletes in North Carolina High School Athletic Association competition are selected for this award from nominations received from media and school administrators.
Chaplin had a double-double last week against Cardinal Gibbons High School with 21 points and 12 rebounds in the decisive 52-38 win over the Lady Crusaders in non-conference play. The sophomore Tiger also contributed 4 assists, 1 block and 1 steal.
Alliyah’s sister, Ti’Mia, also suits up for the Chapel Hill squad, coached by Sherry Norris who was recognized in the fall for induction into the class of 2016 for the NCHSAA Hall of Fame and was recently announced as the 2015 North Carolina Coach of the Year for Girls Basketball by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS).
Surratt, a junior at East Lincoln, hit six 3-point shots in a major 91- 57 win last week over the Maiden Blue Devils, scoring a total of 50 points. He shot 100% from the free throw line, sinking 10 of 10 attempts and added six assists and three steals to round out his performance against Maiden High School. Incidentally, his brother, Chazz, was named as a Performance of the Week athlete last year for his football prowess at East Lincoln.
TWC Sports Channel typically announces the winners of the awards during its Tuesday night SportsNight show and will recognize the winners throughout the week. Weekly recipients will also be recognized via Twitter and Facebook.
