Just Call Them Champions !
The Alexander Central Men’s Basketball team won the North Piedmont Conference Tournament Title Friday night over Mooresville 75-62.

Justin Dula has 25 points and 10 rebounds to pace the Cougars. Kaleb Parsons had 20 and Noah Presnell added 12. ACHS enters the State 4A Playoffs with a record of 19-8.
In the Women’s Championship game, North Iredell stayed perfect on the season beating Mooresville 58-51. The Lady Raiders are 26-0 under former Alexander Central assistant Coach Roger Bumgarner.
