Believe anything is possible.
That is the new motto for the Newton-Conover Lady Red Devils basketball team heading into Saturdayâ€™s Regional championship game against Salisbury.
On Tuesday, Mallard Creek (27-4), a team that Newton-Conover defeated earlier this season, knocked off defending state champion Butler (30-1) in the 4A ranks.
Following that upset victory, Newton-Conover head coach Jonathan Tharpe texted all of his players with one simple message.
â€śI texted them that Mallard Creek had beaten Butler,â€ť Tharpe said. â€śAll you have to do is believe.â€ť
