The Cinderella run in NCHSAA 2A Girls Basketball Playoffs by the McMichael Phonenix girls has been nothing short of amazing.
They drew the #2 Seed in the Girls 2-A East, but the Phoenix came into the playoffs with a 4-8 record, and had been playing against mostly 3-A schools during Mid-State 3-A conference play, with the exception of the Morehead Panthers.
The McMichael Phoenix have rattled off quite impressive wins against North Lenior(9-2) and Croatan(13-3) to reach the semifinals/Regionals of the NCHSAA Girls State Basketball Tournament.
