After Athens Drive defeating Cary last night for the third seed in the NCHSAA volleyball playoffs, here are the final Tri-Nine volleyball standings (pre-playoffs).
The regular season ended last night for the Tri-Nine Conference, but one more game has yet to be played. Cary and Athens Drive finished tied for third in the conference after last night's season finales, and since the two split the season series, they will play a tiebreaker match tonight.
The game is set for 5 p.m. at Middle Creek High.
The winner of the match will have a home first-round match against the 3-seed from the Southeastern Conference, while the fourth-seed will be on the road against the 2-seed from the PAC-6 Conference.
Wake County school board vice chairwoman Debra Goldman got a mostly favorable response at Tuesday's night highly choreographed town hall forum in Cary.
As noted in today's article by Sadia Latifi, most speakers praised Goldman for slowing down the process by joining with the Democrats last week to kill the zone plan. The meeting, which drew about 150 people, took place amid a large police presence as officers guarded entrances and closed off the front section of seats.
"It’s important that I hear from my constituents about their thoughts and concerns, so I can best represent you in my role as a school board member,” Goldman said during the forum. “I’m looking forward to working with the rest of the board and figuring out what needs to happen in Wake County to further the goals we have set before us.”
Wake County school board member John Tedesco isn't making drastic changes to the agenda for today's student assignment committee meeting.
Tedesco. the committee chairman, said he decided not to add any new topics to the agenda following last week's vote scrapping work on the zone-based plan. Tedesco, who set the agenda before last week's vote, said they'll discuss school funding and program choice today.
Tedesco said the one thing he did change was drop agenda topics relating to the zone plan the committee has been working on for the past several months.
Here are the results of Wednesday's Tri-Nine girls golf meet at Lochmere Country Club. Nicole Keyser of Green Hope became the first non-Athens player to be the medalist. Athens Drive, the two-time state champions, still won the match with a 113 and remain in first place overall.
