2AA N.C. champ Salisbury rejoins Sweet 16

(click here for area stat leaders)

 Salisbury’s Hornets are back in the Sweet 16.

 After No. 12 Berry fell out of the poll, after losing 48-26 to No. 3 Charlotte Catholic, Salisbury jumped back in.

 Since losing 37-28 to No. 14 West Rowan, a 3A team, on Sept. 2, the reigning N.C. 2AA Hornets have won six straight games, behind a powerful offense that’s topped 55 points four times and a defense that’s gotten two shutouts during the run and allowed a third team just seven points.

Check out the complete comprehensive coverage on the top 100 in NC.

Check out your own school and its national and state rankings.

Why waste time on the fairytale when you have the real deal?

There is nothing more comprehensive on the planet for your high school and rankings.

CBS Viacom is a 250 billion dollar worldwide corporation who employ 70,000 of the highest skilled best of quality.

Anything else is a waste of time.

To the SILLY Sports Department at your paper...You clearly hate MYERS PARK and South Meck.
The Charlotte Observer didn't even add the score of the MP/South Mecklenburg game Friday night. Absolutely Ridiculous. 2 of the largest High Schools in the state, 5 miles from your headquarters, big game, big time state playoff implications and NOT A WORD???????????????????????????????????WOW....Wish there was a competing newspaper in town and your sweet 16 polls in garbage too.

So Mooresville still isnt in? Holding Hough to -11 total yards wasnt good enough? Its all good though...we will use that for motivation. just figured we would be in the lower part of it (13-16).

Like I said about 3-4 weeks ago Mooresville will lose one game against a top ranked team and you won't see their name in the rankings no more.Other teams win two games in a row and get right back in yhe poll.JOKE.
