The top of the Sweet 16 looks a lot like it has for the past month, with unbeatens Providence and Garinger, sitting atop the poll. The two teams are also 1-2 in the latest N.C. Soccer Coaches 4A statewide poll.
But there is some change. Three new teams are in the final regular-season poll of the season. Soccer playoffs begin Wednesday.
Thomas Jefferson, a 1A team, debuts at No. 12. Ranked No. 5 in the 1A state poll, the team has won six straight matches.
At No. 14 is Newton’s Fred T. Foard High. Foard, a 3A team, beat 4A Watauga 1-0 last week and knocked Watauga out of the Sweet 16. Foard has not lost a match since Sept. 25.
Finally, Chase High is in at No. 16. Chase has won five straight.
