Wildcats News · “1 – 2 – 3 WILDCATS” | A Video about the ’96-’97 Men’s Basketball State Champion Team (preview)


“In its very first year of existence, with no seniors in the entire school, and with only two players with prior varsity high school basketball experience, the East Chapel Hill Wildcats made an unprecedented run all the way to the Dean Dome to play for the state title. And that is where the story starts to get interesting.” – – – Brian FitzGerald – ECHHS Class of 1998
