Each week, Sports Editor Andrew Stark and sports writer/content producer Paul Nielsen will pick the winners of every high school football game. We’ll invite some local coaches to join us and put our knowledge to the test, and we’ll keep a running tab to see who does it best. Last week, Charlotte Latin field hockey coach and assistant athletic director Deb Savino learned that her Hawks earned the No.1 seed in the NCISAA tournament and pulled off a rarity, going a perfect 11-0 including calling Chris School’s upset win over the Hawks. She has the guests in a three-game lead and will pass it off to Charlotte Catholic veteran tennis coach Jo Cabana. Last season, Cabana guided the Cougars – and 3A singles champ Rose Kinney – to an unbeaten championship. This year, with a group of freshmen playing big roles, Cabana has her Cougars again unbeaten entering the post-season tournament.
The scores so far are Andrew (10-1 last week, 102-36 overall), Paul (8-3 last week, 101-37 overall) and our guests (11-0 last week, 105-32 overall).
