NCHSAA meeting this week in Chapel HillThe North Carolina High School Athletic Association holds its annual meeting this week in Chapel Hill, where two significant issues affecting local teams are expected to be finalized.The NCHSAA board of directors is expected to set the realignment of the states high schools for 2013-17, with East Chapel Hill hovering between 3A and 4A status. If the board accepts the NCHSAA realignment committees final plan, East Chapel Hill will drop into a 3A conference with Chapel Hill and Orange. If the board accepts the appeal of Panther Creek and Green Hope who noted that Easts first attendance numbers failed to reflect the schools larger study body then the Wildcats would stay in the 4A PAC-6 and those two Wake County schools will stay in their present conference.The NCHSAA also is expected to announce its vote on the eligibility status of Cardinal Gibbons, Charlotte Catholic and Bishop McGuinness, deciding if those parochial schools should be denied membership.The NCHSAAs annual awards presentations, including Chapel Hill High Schools Sherry Norris being recognized as the North Carolina female coach of the year, will be held Thursday at the Dean E. Smith Center.
