Final Sweet 16 of the regular-season sees 3 changes

The final Sweet 16 poll of the regular-season find the top four boys spots the same and two new  teams joining in.

Mooresville, which upset North Meck last week is in at No. 13. The Blue Devils won their final three regular-season games in a tough I-Meck 4A conference. North Meck dropped one spot to No. 8 this week.

The other new team is No. 12 Marvin Ridge, which has also won three in a row for legendary coach Gosnell White.

-- The girls poll is pretty solid. Despite winning its 19th straight game, North Iredell is again stuck at No. 9. And 22-1 Belmont South Point can’t move up despite winning a share of its first conference title since 1979.

There is one change in the girls poll: Ardrey Kell returns at No. 16.

-- This is the final Sweet 16 until a champion is announced after the season ends next month. Eligible teams must field football and basketball teams, play in an accredited state association and not allow student-athletes to maintain eligibility when repeating a grade during his or her high school years.

Porter Ridge Girls beat Ardrey Kell so why are we not in the Sweet 16?

Anonymous at 5:24. You need to stay very quiet about your girls team. If Butler gets wind that you folks have some players down there, their parents will all mysteriously wind up in an apartment building in Matthews, NC. It remains the most amazing phenomonon in all HS athletics. Anyone that moves to Matthews, NC automatically has Division 1 athletic coaches show up at their residence. (Your top notch football players don't have their families move into the apartments. Porter Ridge football players, I think, move in with their uncles in Mint Hill.)

I'd probably put Shelby girls at number 3 behind Butler and Salisbury. I would bet they would beat Hopewell and Mallard Creek. Glad to see East Rutherford boys are getting the respect they deserve. Beat your OBSERVER POY 2x this year as well as Burns and Freedom. Only loss was to Freedom by 1 point... and they was a rob to say the least

"I would bet they would beat Hopewell and Mallard Creek...." Why does this matter to you?

Because those 2 schools are good... just not Shelby good. And no, I'm not a Shelby grad and far from a fan. But I do know a good team when I see one.

Yeah, Shelby girls can get no love from Langston this year. They are dominating teams but still sit midpack of the Sweet 16.
