As the regular football season enters its final week, a few schools have secured sole conference championships while others have secured at least a portion of their league’s title.
Here is a compilation of those educational institutions.
Firstly, a few points to mention:
In conferences with only one classification, the ultimate winner receives a trophy, has the opportunity to display a banner, and is granted a higher seed than other first place teams in the N.C. High School Athletic Association’s state playoffs.
If there is a tie for first place, the teams will be named co-champions of the conference. The outcome of a head-to-head game between the tied teams will not affect the awarding of a banner. Both teams will receive a trophy, but only one will be seeded first alongside the other conference champions in the playoff brackets. This decision is usually based on which team won the head-to-head matchup.
In split-level tournaments, the winner of the entire competition receives a trophy or banner. Additionally, the top-performing team from the opposing classification within the conference will also be given a high seed in their own separate playoff bracket.
In a conference with a split classification of 3A/4A, the 4A team with the highest overall ranking will represent the conference. However, the top 3A team will also be considered a 1-seed in the 3A bracket.
These teams have secured a conference title without any doubts, as they hold a significant lead in the standings that cannot be overcome mathematically within one week of play.
The 2A Mid-State conference features Reidsville.
Reidsville is part of the 2A Mid-State conference.
Mountain 7 3A – West Henderson
Mountain Foothills 1A/2A – Brevard
Watauga in the Northwestern 3A/4A division.
3A Southern Piedmont – Jay M. Robinson
These schools have secured a portion of the conference championship, but they must either win next week or rely on the trailing team to lose in order to claim sole possession of the title. Additionally, many of these teams have guaranteed themselves the top seed in the playoffs for their respective conferences.
