Staff report

Third-seeded East Rowan will be home in the 3A playoffs on Tuesday at 7 against 14th-seeded Western Guilford.

Seeded 15th, South Rowan is at No 2 West Stanly in the 2A playoffs, while 15th-seeded Carson travels to Hickory to play No. 2 St. Stephens.

West Rowan, which was 7-3 in the North Piedmont Conference, did not get in, which was a surprise.

There was a complication in the 3A Piedmont Triad Conference. Western Guilford was listed with a 7-4 record by MaxPreps, with Mount Tabor listed at 8-3, but both teams were actually 7-3 in league play.

After Dudley forfeited a league game to Western Guilford on Thursday, Western Guilford had the opportunity to play an additional game and played for a third time against Mount Tabor on Friday. Mount Tabor won that game, but that result shouldn’t have been counted in the conference standings.

When corrected records were sent to the NCHSAA, Mount Tabor and Western Guilford stood 7-3 in conference play, the same as West Rowan.

West Rowan coach Seth Graham was informed by the NCHSAA that the Falcons lost a draw with Mount Tabor and Western Guilford for the final two wild-card spots in the 3A West bracket.

The wild-card teams were randomly seeded. Carson wound up with the No. 15 seed.
