3A Big Eight Championships Field Set
Four teams fight for two titles Friday night at Chapel Hill High School in the 3A Big Eight championship.
The Chapel Hill Tiger girls extended their winning streak and undefeated season of 25 wins with a 76-58 decision against Southern. As expected, the Tigers meet the Crusaders after a 63-27 win by Cardinal Gibbons against Webb. Chapel Hill swept the regular-season series with Gibbons by margins of 24 and 18.

The Chapel Hill boys weren’t able to follow the girls into the championship round on their home court as they fell to Southern. However, both number one seeds will be present as Orange defeated Cardinal Gibbons in Hillsborough Thursday night, 60-56. Orange and Southern split the regular season series as both teams took their home tilt.
The boys’ 3A Big Eight title game is scheduled to tip at 7:00 p.m.
