The Chargers beat out the Tigers and Red Wolves in team scores in both races, too.

Cross country: Jordan-Matthews had another solid showing in the PAC 7 2A Conference, as the Jets swept Randleman, Eastern Randolph and T.W. Andrews in a road quad-meet. Robert Train finished first in the men’s race (20:05), and Jasmine Basilio (28:23) finished first in the women’s race.

Volleyball: Chatham Central dropped to 3-4 on the season after a 3-1 road non-conference loss at North Carolina Leadership Academy of Kernersville. The Bears won the first set 25-17 but dropped the next three (25-21, 25-22 and 26-24) in a tight loss. Senior Savannah Stilwell (eight kills, six blocks) had a strong match for Chatham Central.

Thursday, Dec. 10

Cross country: Kailey Green (ninth place, 25:09) paced the Chatham Central women in the Yadkin Valley 1A conference women’s meet. Green was named all-conference for the second season in a row and also qualified for the NCHSAA 1A Mideast Regional in January.
