Actually, Lake Norman beat West Charlotte in 2010 in the final four en route to winning the state championship.

I'm sure with the loss West Charlotte will move up in the Sweet 16. How can they still be ranked at all in this poll?

Greatest win?? I guess beating WC 3 out of 4 times in 2010, en route to winning the SAME 4A State Championship WC won in 2011, would not qualify as great wins...What about beating 30-0 Sanford by double digits to win that 2010 championship? Charlotte area fans are truly sports-deficient.
