Carrboro moves up in the N&O rankings

tstevens@newsobserver.comNovember 29, 2012 

Nobody knows how Carrboro would fare if it played any of the area’s five heavyweight 4A football powers, but we do know that the Jaguars have met every challenge presented to them this season.

Jason Tudryn’s 15-0 club will play South Iredell on Saturday for the N.C. High School Athletic Association 2AA title.

The Jaguars are the only area team still standing after last week’s semifinal games.

Carrboro was ranked No. 6 last week and did not leap over Garner (14-1) and Leesville Road (12-1) in the N&O rankings, but in recognition of the Jaguars’ success they are now No. 3 in the rankings.

Could Carrboro beat Middle Creek or Wakefield? Logic says “no,” but logic doesn’t always rule on the football field.

Could Chapel Hill, which is ranked No. 17, play with the area’s best teams? Perhaps. And Carrboro beat Chapel Hill.
