Schools in the Tri-W area have been deep in postseason competition as fall sports begin to wrap up. Tri-W runners filled the leaderboards at the NCHSAA State Cross Country Championships, and Tri-W football teams are set to feature heavily in playoff competition. Here is a look at the postseason so far. 


Runners at Cuthbertson have had an incredible week. The women’s cross country team earned first place overall in the NCHSAA State Cross Country Championships, and the men finished third. This is the second year in a row that the Cavaliers have brought home the women’s state championship win. With the Southern Carolina 3A conference split into 3A and 3AA divisions, the Cavaliers have earned a football playoff spot. They are seeded at number 15; they will play the number two seed Watauga on November 15. The Cuthbertson soccer team will play Hickory on November 13 after winning their two previous playoff matches.

The Rebels will make a football playoff appearance following their 17-14 win over the Monroe Redhawks on Friday. The Rebels finished their season with an overall record of 7-4, and a conference record of 4-3. Parkwood will play Northeast Guilford, in McLeansville, for the first round of the state playoffs on November 15.


Weddington was another Tri-W team to make waves at the NCHSAA State Cross Country Championships. The men’s cross country team earned a second place overall finish, and the women’s team finished third. Weddington’s win over Cuthbertson in Friday night’s football game has resulted in Weddington’s first ever undefeated regular season. The Warriors are the number one seed in the 3AA division. They will play at home against 16 seed South Iredell on November 15 for the first round of playoff competition.
