And to think Berry was whining about having to leave the county to play outside in foreign territory. Hey, it may be a little more of a drive but the winning is def worth it, eh?

In 4 yrs at the next realighment there will be a lot more "diversity" and "multiculturalism" especially when the NCHSAA splits up into 6 divisions as they are already certain they will do.

Berry's "whining" was justified. These kids get home extremely late for away games. Basketball season is going to be worse. Kids don't go to Berry primarily for sports like some other schools.

Plus, Berry has a much better team this year regardless. They are attracting more true "student-athletes" and for the first time would have been very competitive in their old conference. They are 2-0 against teams they have played from that conference thus far, beating those teams convincingly.

I still question the intelligence of the decision to put them in a conference where most of their game commutes will be an hour or more, a serious factor on school nights. For the sake of competitiveness in sports? Who cares? Education is first!
