The Grimsley girls made sure Page didn’t get a sweep in the doubleheader at Bob Sawyer Gym last night, when the Whirlies beat the Pirates 37-28. High Point Central’s girls grabbed a road win at Smith with a 54-47 victory over the Golden Eagles, but again no sweep as the home stading Eagles beat the Bison in the boys matchup, 58-49, to allow Smith to pick up only their second win of the season.
Northern got the sweep as the Nighthawk boys bested Morehead 76-47 and Northern’s girls came out on top over Morehead 65-28. We have the Dudley boys and their 63-40 win over Western Alamance, but we don’t have anything on how the Dudley girls came out, but we feel certain that they won again.
Eastern Guilford grabbed a pair from West Stokes with the EG Wildcat girls rolling 62-43 behind Miranda Jenkins 25 and Capricia Small’s 16 points. The EG boys picked up a ten-point win, 67-57 over West Stokes. Southern Guilford dropped two games to Reidsville with the Storm girls falling by around 20 and the SG boys by nearly as many to the Reidsville Rams. Eastern Guilford versus Southern Guilford next Friday night at UNCG.
More on the EG girls from last night:

Northeast Guilford split the doubleheader with Rockingham County as the NEG boys got their third win of the season 76-47 over RC, but the Ram girls got tripped up, losing 60-34. The Northwest Guilford girls ran off and left East Forsyth with NWG cruising to a 59-17 victory, but the Viking men got out-scored 11-8 in the second quarter and lost to EF 53-50….NWG played even with the Eagles with exception of that second quarter.
We have another split to report as the Western Guilford girls were big winners over Bartlett Yancey 71-35, but WG’s boys went down at the hands of the Buccaneers 66-60. The High Point Andrews boys pounded WS Carver 66-37 and the HPA girls made it a rare sweep, with a 43-40 win over the Yellowjackets.
We don’t have anything on the Southeast Guilford boys, but the Falcon girls are on the move after their 67-36 win over Eastern Randolph. Speaking of rolling, the Bishop McGuinness ladies won again 66-31 over East Wilkes. The High Point Christian Cougars boys team topped Caldwell Academy 62-53……

The High Point Andrews boys are now (14-4/3-0), that (3-0) in the Piedmont Triad 3-A Conference is big….The Dudley boys are (14-1) overall and (7-0) in the Triad 3-A Conference. Northern Guilford is just one and a-half games back at (5-1) conference and (11-3) overall. The Ragsdale boys have still only lost one game (15-1) and have no conference losses in the Mid-Piedmont 3-A Conference.
On the girls side of things it looks like:
1) Northwest Guilford (3-0)
2) High Point Central (2-1)
3) Grimsley (1-2)
4) Page (1-2)
5) Smith (1-2)
6) East Forsyth (1-2)
The Southeast Guilford girls have started (5-0) Mid-Piedmont Conference and they are (11-3) overall….The Ragsdale girls are one game back having lost that one game to the Falcons. The Dudley girls are (12-2) overall and (7-0) in the Triad 3-A Conference.
The Eastern Guilford girls have gone to (4-0) in the North State 2-A Conference and they have Southern coming up next week, and EG must still face Reidsville one more time this season.
That’s a look at how the teams are starting to shape up here still early in January, but we are almost half way through the conference schedules….
