Seeks Help From
Board Of Education
BY JOHNNY CRAIG
North Brunswick High School principal James McAdams spoke to the
counly board of education last week seeking help with his school's dealing
with the North Carolina High School Athletic Association.
And for the sake of North Brunswick athletics, let's hope the Leland
school gets the board's full support.
The Scorpions, members of the Waccamaw 2-A Conference, have
sought for some time now to drop to the smallerl-A classification but such
wishes to present their case to the NCHS A A have fallen upon deaf ears.
The problem concerning North Brunswick athletics is both internal and
Enrollment at North Brunswick has dropped steadily since the last time
the NCHSAA realigned the stale's prep athletic conferences (1985). Present
enrollment at North is currently 583 students.
However, this is only half the problem.
Both Columbus and Robeson County schools, some of whom are
members of the Waccamaw Conference, are in the process of consolidation.
This consolidation takes effect in Robeson County with the upcoming
1991-92 school year and wi!! begin in Columbus County in 1992-93.
While North Brunswick is presently fighting a losing battle against
larger conference members, the task will be almost insurmountable by the
time consolidation takes effect in the neighboring counties.
A prime example of what's in store for North Brunswick is just one sit
uation in Robeson County.
Between consolidation and the redistricting of Fairmont and Ornim
High Schools, Waccamaw Conference member South Robeson will see its
enrollment top 800 students.
In fact, both Fairmont and South Robeson look to gain between 200
300 students each according to McAdams.
"The NCHSAA has told us we would have to wait two years before we
can appeal and seek to drop to a lower classification," said McAdams. "We
just can't wait two years with what is happening around us."
"I wrote a letter to the NCHSAA last year explaining our hopes of
joining the 1-A classification due to our unique situation ? we were losing
students while the other schools around us were gaining students."
"Since that time, the NCHSAA has allowed two schools to play down
in classification including nearby West Carteret," explained McAdams.
"We just want to be treated equal and have the chance to present our
case at a hearing before the NCHSAA."
The ideal situation for North Brunswick, according to McAdams,
would be for the NCHSAA to allow the school to drop to the 1-A classifi
cation and let the Scorpions join the Coastal Plains Conference.
The seven-member CPC is geographically located north of Brunswick
County and includes Southwest Onslow, Swansboro, Jones Senior, Dixon,
Richlands, Lcjeune and Topsail.
During the last five years of the current conference realignment, North
Brunswick can boost a 4-2 record against CPC opponents in football. While
that's certainly not complete domination, it is certainly a better winning
percentage than the Scorpions 8-42 overall gridiron record of the past five
And while football isn't the only measuring device for North
Brunswick's athletic success, it is one of the two important revenue-pro
ducing sports at the school (the other being basketball).
The Scorpions can boost of basketball success during the past decade
but it would seem rather unfair to expect the North Brunswick cage teams
to carry the bulk of the revenue-producing tasks without the help of a com
petitive football program.
"You've got to win in the revenue-producing sports in order to help
carry the other sports. That's the way it is in high school and college alike,"
North Brunswick certainly deserves its chance to present its case to the
NCHSAA and explain its unique situation.
No, athletics is not the most important feature of the high school expe
rience. But, a good mixture of academics and athletics helps provide a stu
dent with a well-rounded educational experience which will help him/her
prepare for greater challenges in life.
The same things that drive athletes toward success on the playing field
or court drive us to success in whatever field, profession or task we perform
for the rest of our lives.
