Green Hope captured the conference championship this season.
The five playoff teams are Green Hope, Apex, Fuquay-Varina, Middle Creek and Athens Drive. There could be a sixth if Panther Creek is selected as a wild-card team, but it's difficult since the NCHSAA places more priority on conference finish than conference strength.
Green Hope will play the 3-seeded wild-card team at home. Apex will host the fourth-best team in the PAC-Six Conference (appears to be Northern Durham). Fuquay will host the 3-seed from the Cap-7 Conference (most likely Leesville Road).
Middle Creek will travel to Sanderson, while Athens Drive has a road date with Broughton (both Sanderson and Broughton are from the Cap-7).
