High school football season in Bladen County came to a close, two West Bladen athletes were honored as the league’s best and an East Bladen basketball player makes her college choice during the week of Nov. 12-18.
Junior Jalil Hutcherson rushed for 167 yards and made a key interception to lead Wilson Beddingfield to a 14-12 victory over East Bladen on Friday, Nov. 16 in the opening round of the NCHSAA Class 2A football play-offs.
“I am proud of my guys. They had a good year,” East Bladen coach Robby Priest. “We kind of overachieved, but we will get back to work and start rebuilding. I feel bad for the seniors.”
The Eagles finished their season with a 9-3 record.
West Bladen’s Raegan Davis and Savannah Lee were named Three Rivers Conference Players of the Year in their respective sports.
