Championship bound – The Whirlie Girls

Update: More at Greensboro Sports.com

Amid all of last weekend’s hoopla surrounding the Women’s ACC tourney in the Gate City and then Tyler Hansbrough’s bloody nose, it is almost understandable how something this big and unprecedented could get lost in the shuffle.

Almost.

I mean, c’mon… all the Grimsley Whirlie women’s basketball team have accomplished this year was to post a 30-1 season (guess who the “1″ was?) in their march to this weekend’s Class 4-A state championship game.  They play for the team’s first-ever state title this Saturday @ 5:00p in UNC-CH’s Dean Dome.

We’re going to load up the car to go watch this historic game Saturday.  You should, too.  Realizing that the ACC men’s semi-final begins @ 4:00 that same day, the Hoggards figured out a way to witness both games: we bought a car with a radio.

Go Whirlies… (and thanks, Steve, for the nudge)
