As we did yesterday, let’s look at the schedules from the Piedmont Triad 4-A Conference today….

Northwest Guilford Vikings
August 19th at Smith….August 26 Western Guilford at home….September 2nd Grimsley at home…Sept. 9 at Northern Guilford….Sept. 16 Glenn at home….Sept. 23 at Southwest Guilford….Sept. 30 High Point Central at home….Oct. 7 at Ragsdale….Oct. 14 WS Parkland at home…Oct. 21 at East Forsyth…Oct. 28 Open….
*****For NWG you should be looking at a (9-1) or (8-2) season….Last year the Vikings went (8-3) regular season and this year, they should be in line to go (9-1)….A couple of toss-ups in Northern Guilford and Ragsdale, but NWG should be ready to beat Ragsdale this year and Smith will be a good early season test at Smith, but NWG is your team to beat, in the Piedmont Triad Conference….*****

Ragsdale Tigers
August 19th at Grimsley…August 26th Dudley at home…Sept. 2nd at Western Guilford….Sept. 9th Page at home….Sept. 16th at WS Parkland…Sept. 23 East Forsyth at home….Sept. 30 at Southwest Guilford…Oct. 7 Northwest Guilford at home….Oct. 14 Open….Oct. 21 Glenn at home….Oct. 28 at High Point Central….
*****Ragsdale should finish at (8-2) or at (7-3)….Hard games with Page, Northwest Guilford and Dudley in that order….Those three will prove to be the tough ones….(8-2) is not that bad at all, for a team that has lost a lot of players, but they have only lost 2-3 games in the past three years….*****

East Forsyth Eagles
August 19 at West Forsyth…August 26 Mount Tabor at home…Sept. 2nd at WS Reagan…Sept. 9th WS Reynolds at home…Sept. 16 High Point Central at home…Sept. 23 at Ragsdale….Sept. 30 at WS Parkland….Oct. 7 at Grimsley….Oct. 14 at Southwest Guilford….Oct. 21 Northwest Guilford at home….Oct. 28 Glenn at home…….

*****High Point Central in line for a (6-5) season and that would be good, considering all the talent that the Bison lost off of last year’s team…..Justin Johnson, Woody Cornwell and Lashaurn Monk continue to be the keys to the Bison’ success….*****
