#6)Northwest Guilford(19-7, demolished North Forsyth 83-33 on Monday and then got ambushed by HPC in OT on Wednesday night.  Coach Kenny Carter of HPC is so slick down the stretch in the key parts of the post-season.  I hear he buys his groceries at Culler’s Store on English Street in HP and he will be trying out some of the Education Lottery tickets after the tournament is over)

    Hey lady, It’s not time to run. Hang in there and fight for the Grimsley Whirlies. My kids went to school there and I know Bob Jamieson and Bob Sawyer would be proud of our teams. It’s time to take out HIGH POINT and claim the trophy that is rightfully ours. In my years on the police force I saw it all and I think Grimsley will win this fight and it is a fight and we plan to stick in and win it all for the sake of Greensboro Senior High and all of those who came before us. This is a war we intend to WIN. Don’t jump ship now, it is time to get on the front line. DB:GPD

    Like I said before all championships have to go through the HPC girls we should be playing Page for the title, never count Coach Carter out of a game in February or March.
