“We are truly excited about the state championships going to Beeson Park,” said Davis Whitfield, Executive Director of the NCHSAA. “We also want to thank Tanglewood Park for the fine job they did hosting our championships the last eight years.”
Tanglewood Park hosted the state finals from 2002-2009. Before that, the state finals were held at McAlpine Park in Charlotte from 1980-2001.
