The first round of the Section 4AAAA football playoffs turned out to be the end of the 2016 road for North and Tartan. Both teams were on the road in the quarterfinals on Oct. 25 and couldn’t get past a pair of big city foes.
The North High School volleyball team wrapped up one championship earlier this month and begins the chase for another this week. The Polars open the section playoffs on Thursday, Oct. 27, with a home match.
The high school football regular season has reached week eight, which means games on Wednesday because of the teachers’ convention. It also means that teams have one more chance to prepare for the post-season.
