The high school conference tournaments got under way on Monday night and the Southern Guilford teams have both been eliminated. Word on the Northwest boys: Gone. Page won the rematch from last Friday and now the NWG boys season is over. The same can be said for the SG squads and the big question is, who will be next, or as Bill Goldberg used to say,”Who’s Next”? After all the dust is settled you should expect to see the Dudley boys, the Dudley girls, the Grimsley girls, and the Greensboro Day School boys in line to bring home some sort of titles. We may be talking states, regionals, sectionals, or conference crowns, the above mentioned teams are your favorites. GDS has High Point Wesleyan on Thursday and then the NCIHSAA title is on the line next week at the Day School.
