The No. 1 Rockets will host No. 8 Sycamore Lane at 4 p.m. in the girls matchup, followed by the boys, also against No. 8 Sycamore Lane.

The top eight teams in the 11-team conference make the playoffs. Ties are decided by head-to-head match-ups. Seventh-seeded Rohanen travels to No. 2 West Hoke, No. 6 East Hoke will play at No. 3 Hamlet and No. 5 Sandy Grove will play at No. 4 Anson.
