Are there any obscure high school sports that used to exist in the area but no longer do?

Chuck Carree

After talking with retired athletic directors in the three adjacent counties, no sports have been dropped. In fact, throughout the years schools in each county have added sports.

It might not exactly be an obscure sport, but six- and eight-man football were dropped in 1955 and 1964, respectively. As a footnote, Southport won the final three eight-man state football titles in 1962, ’63 and ’64. Bolivia once had six-man football.


Where did New Hanover High School play football and baseball before Legion Stadium?

What year did Hoggard High School start football?
