Report: Northern Guilford to lose 3-A boys basketball title

The Greensboro News and Recorded reported Wednesday that Northern Guilford has been stripped of its 3-A boys basketball title by the N.C. High School Athletic Association for using ineligible players.

Northern Guilford, in its second year, defeated defending state king Kinston in the 3-A East Regional final before outlasting Gastonia Forestview in the state championship in March.

The story alleges that two students on the Hawks roster were not in the school district. Additionally, the varsity baseball and wrestling team have been charged with using ineligible players.

News and Record staff writer Robert Bell also reported the NCHSAA is investigating other Guilford County schools as well.

This is nothing new in high school sports but it makes you wonder sometimes who is really attending the school to which they are assigned.
