What a night! Kinston, South Lenoir and Jones Senior are all in the Regionals next week! Congratulations to the Vikings, Blue Devils and Trojans.
Here’s the deal: the Regional assignments will be announced tomorrow morning or early afternoon. Kinston will play on Tuesday, South Lenoir will play on Friday and Jones Senior will play on Thursday.
My analysis later (when I get off deadline) – and I’ve got a lot of it.
