  • Only one left said,

    Shaylen will be the only high level player left in the Metro with so many of the top players transferring to New Hope Christian. The private schools have taken all the talent worth watching in boys and now girls basketball. There are zero games that I can think of that will be worth watching on the public school level locately next year.

    Who all are we losing???

  • Page Pirate said,

    The only key match ups will be between page and southern alamance (aka paris vs. shay. It is sad however maybe these players/parents feel they will get a better opportunity. This will be interesting to revisit with all the transfers and where they end up in college.

  • Losing Big Names said,

    Andy we are losing some big name players to New Hope next season. Some of these players may not have told their current school coaches so I will let the process play out. The rumors that you have heard are true. The talent keeps heading to the private school ranks.
