And then there were three.
After Tuesdayâ€™s State Team Dual tournament opening rounds, only three area teams remain in the hunt for a state championship.
St. Stephens and Fred T. Foard survived in the 3A, while Newton-Conover was the lone team in 2A to make it through.
The added benefit for these teams is that they face different circumstances than their opening contests. Newton-Conover and Fred T. Foard both host matches on Thursday.
St. Stephens will travel, but it will be a much shorter distance, as they head to Foard for their third and fourth round competition.
Tuesdayâ€™s game was a special delivery for the Bunker Hill basketball team.
Postman Walker Mehl scored 23 points, including 18 in the second half, to lead Bunker Hill to a critical conference victory over Maiden on Senior night.
The win keeps the Bears (12-11, 6-7) in the fifth spot in the Catawba Valley 2A and two games ahead of South Iredell.
