North Moore will face Uwharrie Charter for baseball championship

ASHEBORO – North Moore has earned a chance to compete for a state championship.  The Mustangs (22-8) will face the Uwharrie Charter Eagles in the best-of-3 Class 1-A state championship series beginning Friday at Ting Stadium in Holly Springs. Game 2 and, if necessary, Game 3 will be held Saturday.

The match-up pits two schools about 25 miles apart. The players have crossed paths on the youth circuit, and both schools had entries in a fall league at Asheboro’s McCrary Park.

UCA won the 2019 state title. That postseason march included a victory against North Moore in the first round when the teams were in the same conference and thus in the same region.

This year, Eastern Randolph defeated North Moore 13-5 in an early April meeting during spring break at Southwestern Randolph, so they have a common opponent.

Both teams play in split conferences, allowing them to compete regularly against 2-A opponents.
