The N.C. High School Athletic Association East regional final assignments were announced Wednesday.

On Saturday, three of the four boys’ regional title games will be played at Fayetteville State and three of the four girls’ games will be a Methodist University.

The only swap was the 1A boys for 3A girls, so that Northern Guilford – which has both of its teams in the 3A games – isn’t split between two venues.

That puts Kestrel Heights’ boys (30-1) against Williamston’s Riverside High (24-3) for a noon 1A East final at Methodist, followed by Roxboro Community’s girls (27-3) playing Pamlico County (24-3) in the other 1A final right afterward at 2 p.m.

Millbrook (28-3) and Southeast Raleigh’s girls (31-0) have the final game at Methodist at 6 p.m.

Leesville Road (21-9) and South Central’s boys (27-1) will tangle in the 4A boys’ final at 2 p.m. at Fayetteville State.
