We have an exciting opportunity taking place for our varsity basketball programs this week. Time Warner Cable is doing a live broadcasts of several varsity girls and boys basketball games throughout the state this season. Our school has been chosen as one of the schools to have our varsity games televised LIVE by TWC!

In order for this to take place, we had to make a few changes to accommodate TWC’s schedule and graduation presentations, so please note the following changes:

The Varsity girls and boys basketball games vs. East Duplin that were originally scheduled for Friday Feb. 5th will now be played on Thursday Feb. 4th with the girls game to begin at 7:00 pm and the boys game to follow.

The JV boys and girls basketball games vs East Duplin will remain on Friday Feb. 5th with the girls JV game starting at their regular 4:00 pm game and the JV boys game to follow.

Having our games televised live will be a first here at Northside and we are excited for the opportunity!
