Interesting first round match-up is South Robeson at St. Pauls. Both of these teams are ineligible for state play-offs due to a fight in their last meeting at South Robeson. There was debate about whether they should be allowed to play in conference tournament, but conference is allowing them to compete.
#8 East Columbus at #1 West Columbus
#5 Whiteville at #4 Fairmont
#6 South Robeson at #3 St. Pauls
#7 Red Springs at #2 South Columbus
All boys games begin at 6 p.m. except for South Robeson at St. Pauls that will begin 15 minutes after the completion of the girls game.
