GlaxoSmithKline sets pairings for the Dec. 26-30 boys basketball tournament in Raleigh.
CHAPEL HILL — The soccer match Aug. 27 between East Chapel Hill (1-0-1) and Apex (1-0-1) was cancelled due to lightning and heavy rain in the Chapel Hill area. It has not been rescheduled at this time.
Apex still has a big early season test coming Sept. 4 at Chapel Hill High School. Apex is No. 3 in the latest N.C. Coaches poll and No. 4 in the N&O’s Triangle Top 12. CHHS (2-0-0) is No. 10 and No. 7 in those same polls.
Ravenscroft also had to reschedule a midweek match. Chapel Hill's game at Ravenscroft, the Tigers’ oldest soccer rival, has been reset for Thursday at 7 p.m. (A JV match at 5:30 p.m. precedes the varsities.)
Even without a rematch yet with Apex, ECH already has made some changes to its soccer schedule; notably, Carrboro at East Chapel Hill has been moved from next week to Oct. 17 at 5 p.m. in Wildcat Stadium. Also, both ECH games with Durham Hillside are cancelled, since Hillside failed to field a varsity team this fall.
