According to Rick Strunk, the Associate Commissioner of Communications with the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, the brackets for girls' soccer, baseball and softball will released on Monday.




The NCHSAA will start posting this information—standings and records—beginning Sunday afternoon. The seeding process for soccer, and the process of placing softball and baseball teams on the bracket will begin Monday morning by 9:00 a.m., if there are no standings/team record issues.


Once completed, draft pairings for each sport will be posted and schools will have two hours to review the brackets. Call the NCHSAA staff with questions and/or concerns.


The WHS baseball team, a No.2 seed from the Northwestern 3A-4A Conference, will open the state playoffs against McDowell (13-9), the No.2 seed from the Mountain Athletic 3A-4A Conference; the WHS softball team will open the state playoffs against McDowell or Asheville-Roberson (both those teams are tied for the No.1 seed among the Class 4A schools in the MAC 3a-4A, and both teams are 12-10 overall).


WHS soccer is a No.1 seed from the NW3A-4A and the Pioneers will be seeded by the NCHSAA. The first round of the state playoffs will be played Tuesday or Wednesday.
