The Piedmont Athletic 4-A Conference is so balanced that it is hard to get a read on which team is best.

Three milestones were notched in a 79-27 blowout by Cary Christian's girls basketball team over Kinston Parrott Academy on Friday.
Green Hope, Millbrook girls are Nos. 1 and 2, but much of the rest of the rankings are shaken.
Dakota Dukes, junior, Cary Christian girls basketball
Dakota Dukes is nearing 2,000 points in her career at Cary Christian, but she was relatively unknown in the area prior to last week's 2010 girls GlaxoSmithKline Holiday Invitational.
Dukes was already well-known to college recruiters, however. According to her coach Carmen Javaux, Dukes is being recruited by Elon, Western Carolina and Princeton, among others.
Day three, two games.
