Today is Pancake Day, March 15, 2018, at the Boys & Girls Club of Cabarrus. Serving all day through 7:30 p.m. We’re broadcasting live in the morning hours.

 

Cox Mill battles for the title

Listen to the Radio Free Cabarrus broadcast (audio only) of the game with Mark Plemmons, Chris Hudson and Shaked Bar-Tal. Cox Mill is trying for back to back state titles after winning in Chapel Hill a year ago. It could be three in a row for Cabarrus County aka #hoopsvillenc after Jay M. Robinson won the title two years ago.

The task will be tall for the Chargers, who have won 17 straight games. The opponent, Jacksonville’s Northside Monarchs, have won 59 straight games and are the defending state 2A champions. Tip is at 7:30 p.m (approximate). We’ll be on the air at 7:15 p.m. Saturday, March 10.

The Cube is going away

A message from Mark Plemmons of Radio Free Cabarrus:

Today’s broadcast on The Cube by Radio Free Cabarrus will likely be our last broadcast on that platform. We appreciate all the help The Cube has provided these last few years since Larry Cotter recruited us to use their platform. The media world is constantly changing.

NFHS Network bought The Cube and The Cube will be shut down May 1. Many of the broadcasters are moving to the NFHS Network. Most of RFC’s broadcasts will be there, though we are looking at other possible platforms where we might broadcast live free games.

Even if we find a suitable platform most of our games will still be on NFHS Network due to the NCHSAA fee structure. We encourage those who can to became subscribers to NFHS Network. The cost is $9.95 per month. For those who can’t subscribe our games will be available to view free 72 hours after the event.

We appreciate the tremendous support of our listeners/viewers and will strive to improve and bring you exciting games and events.

BECOME AN OFFICIAL – STAY CONNECTED TO HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS

By Bob Gardner, Executive Director of the National Federation of State High School Associations and Que Tucker, Commissioner of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association.

They don’t make the headlines, their names are not in the box scores and they don’t make the all-star teams, but perhaps the most important individuals in high school sports are the contest officials.

These individuals are so important that, in fact, there would be no organized competitive sports at the high school level without the men and women who officiate these contests every day across the country. Subtract the dedicated men and women who officiate high school sports and competitive sports would no longer be organized; they would be chaotic.

In some areas, high school officials are retiring faster than new licenses are being issued. And junior varsity, freshmen and middle school games are being postponed – or even cancelled – because there are not enough men and women to officiate them.

Anyone looking for a unique way to contribute to the local community should consider becoming a licensed high school official. For individuals who played sports in high school, officiating is a great way to stay close to the sport after their playing days have ended. Officiating helps people stay in shape, expands their social and professional network and offers part-time work that is flexible, yet pays. In fact, officiating is a form of community service, but with compensation.

Another benefit of officiating is that individuals become role models so that teenagers in the community can learn the life lessons that high school sports teach. Students learn to respect their opponents and the rules of the game and the importance of practicing good sportsmanship thanks, in part, to those men and women who officiate. And the objectivity and integrity that high school officials display is an example that every young person needs to observe firsthand. In short, communities around the country will be stronger because of the life lessons that high school officials help teach the next generation.

Officiating is a great way to stay connected to sports and to give back to the local high school and community. We need dedicated men and women to become involved so that high school sports can continue to prosper for years to come.

Individuals interested in learning more about becoming a high school official, and even begin the application process, can do so at www.HighSchoolOfficials.com.
