Tigers Seek First Womens’ Soccer State Title
Chapel Hill High School soccer head coach Ron Benson says he’ll coach his final game Saturday, win or lose.
The North Carolina High School Athletic Association State Championship appearance is the first in CHHS womens’ soccer program history. The Tigers enter the title game as a No. 9 seed. So far Chapel Hill has taken down No. 1 seed Cardinal Gibbons, No. 2 seed Fike, and No. 5 seed Swansboro in the Regional Final. The Championship pits CHHS against West Regional Champion and No. 6 seed Weddington.
The Tigers have only lost one game this year: a 1-0 decision to Cardinal Gibbons in the regular season.
Coach Benson joined Ron Stutts on the WCHL Friday Morning News to discuss Saturday’s matchup and the remarkable season the Tigers have already seen.
