News coming in from EC out of Sanford:

Update on Terry Sanford-Pine Forest……
The NCHSAA decided to not hold their emergency meeting tonight but instead decided to contact all members of the executive committee ASAP. Pine Forest will now be back in the play-offs winning a 6-0 vote, with one member not able to be contacted. Pine Forest will travel east to play New Hanover on Friday night.

The NCHSAA went to court yesterday morning, but a verdict was not reached until lunchtime today. I just got word about five minutes ago (12:35) that Terry Sanford has lost their appeal.

Jim Maxwell, the NCHSAA’s attorney has asked that the executive comittee for the NCHSAA meet this afternoon to reinstate Pine Forest into the playoff bracket.

    An “emergency meeting” will be held tonight to determine if Pine Forest will be reinstated.
