Trivia Note:
TWO-TIME MVP: LaToya Pringle of Seventy-First earned the Wendy's MVP honor for the second consecutive year in the NCHSAA
state 4-A women's championship game. She scored 25 points and pulled down 18 rebounds while blocking seven shots as the Lady Falcons
got past McDowell 76-70 at Reynolds Coliseum. Only four other female athletes have won back-to-back state championship MVPs. Erin 
Crowder of Thomasville earned the Wendy's MVP honor in both 2002 and '03, as Thomasville won two straight NCHSAA state 1-A women's 
basketball championships and made it three in a row this year with a 67-48 triumph over Farmville Central. Crowder did not get the MVP 
award this time, though, as it went to Thomasville's Charnette Davis. The other multiple winners include Mitzi Yount of Catawba Bandys in 
1987-88 and Christy Cagle of Hayesville in 1990-91.
