The North Carolina High School Athletic Association’s release of volleyball state playoff brackets Monday afternoon saw two Pitt County teams earn No. 1 seeds. Matches begin Tuesday.
In the top of the 3-A East bracket is undefeated D.H. Conley (21-0), which opens in Greenville as 32nd-seeded Wilson Fike.
Ayden-Grifton (20-1) is the other No. 1 seed from Pitt County, earning top distinction in the 2-A East bracket and getting a first-round matchup against No. 32 Northeastern (7-9). There is potential for an all-Pitt County matchup in the second round, if A-G wins and 17-seed Farmville Central (10-11) knocks off No. 16 Randleman (16-7).
South Central, which finished the regular season with a strong 18-2 record, comfortably sits at third in the 4-A East region and gets a first-round bye. It will face the winner of 14-seed Holly Springs (12-8) and 19th Garner Magnet (9-12) at home in Round 2.
North Pitt (13-7) is ninth in the 2-A East bracket, hosting No. 24 Durham School of the Arts. NP won seven of its final eight regular-season matches.
J.H. Rose (14-6) will start on the road in 3-A East action, getting the No. 19 seed to play at 14-seed Clayton (15-8).
