4AA title game to be played on a Sunday

The N.C. High School Athletic Association released its state championship football schedule Tuesday afternoon and the N.C. 4AA championship game, as expected, will be held Sunday at 3 p.m. at Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill. The game will be broadcast live -- against the NFL -- on Time Warner Cable.

The NCHSAA was forced to move state finals in Chapel Hill to Friday, Saturday and Sunday due to conflicts with sporting events and winter graduation with the University.

Below is the schedule.

From 11/14/08 Raleigh N&O Rick Strunk, Associate Executive Director of NCHSAA, changes are as follows:

The N.C. High School Athletic Association has changed its football championship dates because of conflicts on the University of North Carolina campus in Chapel Hill.
Three games had been scheduled to be played Saturday, Dec. 13, at UNC's Kenan Stadium. The state 2-A final has been switched to Friday, Dec. 12, at 7:30 p.m. The 4-A final will still be played on Saturday but at 11 a.m. The 4-AA title game has been moved to Sunday, Dec. 14, at 3 p.m.

The NCHSAA typically does not allow member schools to play or practice on Sunday but will move state playoff games to a Sunday if necessary. The association has held baseball and softball championship games on Sundays.

Rick Strunk, associate executive director of the NCHSAA, wrote in an e-mail message that the Chapel Hill games were rescheduled to avoid conflicts with UNC men's basketball, women's basketball and winter graduation.

The 1-A, 1-AA and 2-AA title games are scheduled for N.C. State's Carter-Finley Stadium on Dec. 13. The 3-A and 3-AA finals are set for Wake Forest University's BB&T Field in Winston-Salem.
