The North Carolina High School Athletic Association released its brackets Saturday afternoon informing teams of their paths to a state title. 

Ayden-Grifton saw a change in its seeding just before the brackets were finalized. A-G started the day as a 14-seed, scheduled to play South Granville. In the end, the Chargers (7-4,4-2) wound up with a tougher draw, finishing as a 13-seed and scheduled to travel to face four-seed Kinston (10-0, 6-0) on Friday night. 

The 3-A/4-A Eastern Carolina Conference champion South Central Falcons (11-0, 6-0) saw their hard work pay off with a first-round bye and the number one overall seed in the 4-A East bracket. 

D.H. Conley was awarded a five seed for its 8-3, 5-1 regular season. The Vikings will host 12th seed Southern Alamance (9-2,4-2) in the first round. Also in the 3-AA East bracket is J.H. Rose (8-3, 4-2). The 10-seed Rampants will hit the road in the first round to take on Eastern Guilford (9-2, 5-1).

The update to the 2-A East bracket also affected Greene Central, originally a 15th seed, as the Rams moved up one spot to 14, putting them on the road to face three seed South Columbus (11-0, 9-0).

All games are scheduled to take place Friday at 7:30 p.m.
