  • PCHS said,

    Piedmont Classical is actually 11-1. I guess they’d like to forget their loss to Quality Education Academy in the tournament at Southeast, because it doesn’t appear on their MaxPreps schedule.

  • PCHS said,

    Also, not sure why you list Piedmont Classical as a private school in your polls. It’s a publicly funded charter school.

  • Is PCHS said,

    @PCHS are you all playing in the NCHSAA playoffs if so what classification 1A,2A,3A or 4A I know Lincoln Charter plays 1A. Most people don’t think of you all as a public school because kids can go there and then reclass. You all have a couple of them in your program who went there and reclassed which you can’t do in a true public school.

  • PCHS said,

    Make that 12-1 for Piedmont Classical after the Bobcats’ win last night in a tournament in Miami. They play a semifinal tonight at 8 against Miami Columbus.

  • Andy Durham said,

    Yes, we were going to put PCS at (11-1), but one day on MaxPreps they were (11-1) and then the next day, they were listed at, (11-0)…We are going to go with the (12-1) for now….

    We have them listed as a Private School, because they do re-class students…

    Interesting note, PCS fell to QEA, but QEA lost to Oak Ridge Military Academy, 64-50….But Piedmont Classical did beat Greensboro Day, at GDS, and that is no small feat there…..It doesn’t happen all that often…
