Patriots go back-to-back-to-back 3rd State Championship

Davidson Day’s football team packed the bleachers with good reason Nov. 22. The Patriots won their third straight state championship with a 69-28 rout against Harrells Christian in the N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association Division II championship at Northside Christian. Davidson Day (12-1) wasn’t forced to punt, scored 35 points in the third quarter alone and had the fourth quarter to unofficially celebrate along the sidelines. They became the first lake-area team to win state championships in their first three varsity seasons, passing Hopewell High softball, which did it their first two years (2002 and 2003)Photos by Ken Bumgarner.


SouthLake Christian wins football state championship

Intermittent rain did little to quell SouthLake Christian Academy’s celebration Nov. 15 as the Eagles beat Victory Christian 7-0 to win the N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association Division III football championship. The title was the first in the program’s history. It capped SouthLake’s 11-1 season and avenged a loss to Victory Christian in last season’s final. The rain did slow our photographer down from action shots, but some great pics of the FANS!

Hough defeats Independence (28-27) in HUGE Win!

Hough had plenty to celebrate, but seem determined not to make this game the season’s zenith. The Huskies (4-0) are envisioning playing for a conference title, making a deep playoff run and ultimately, a championship. It’s not a pipe dream, not when you rally to beat one of Charlotte’s marquee programs (Independence won seven state titles from 2000-06). Hough, trailing 27-21, marched 77 yards for the winning score last in the fourth quarter. There was absolutely nothing fancy about it, nor much Independence could do to stop it.
