Area briefs: Moir adds sponsor; seeds finalized

From staff reports
F&M Bank has joined Cheerwine as a co-sponsor for the Sam Moir Christmas Classic set for Dec. 28-30 at Catawba’s Goodman Gym.
Cheerwine has been sponsoring tournament T-shirts the past two years. F&M Bank is now part of the 38-year-old tournament.
“These two generous sponsorships allow us to manage the costs of officials, T-shirts for the participants, championship awards and security before the first ticket is sold at the door,” Catawba athletics director Dennis Davidson said.
“We also feel that it is very fitting that two local staples in the community are connected with a basketball tournament that is another Rowan County tradition. We thank Cliff Ritchie of Cheerwine and Steve Fisher of F&M Bank for their support of this endeavor.”
After expenses, all of the schools involved ó six Rowan County high schools, Davie and Catawba ó receive a share of the gate receipts.
Boys seeds: 1. Carson 10-1; 2. North Rowan 6-1; 3. Davie 6-4; 4. West Rowan 2-2; 5. Salisbury 2-3; 6. South Rowan 4-6; 7. East Rowan 2-7.
South and Salisbury have the same winning percentage. Salisbury won a head-to-head meeting 64-60 and gets the higher seed.
Girls seeds: 1. Salisbury 9-0; 2. Davie 7-1; 3. West Rowan 4-2; 4. North Rowan 3-4; 5. Carson 4-7; 6. South Rowan 3-7; 7. East Rowan 1-9.
– Prep wrestling
East Rowan’s wrestling team placed 17th in the King of the Mat event.
East was led by fourth-place finishes from Chase Thompson (125 pounds) and Daniel Hadnott (215).
– Eighth-grade hoops
Southeast’s boys topped West Rowan 74-35. Devin Parks topped the Patriots with 12 points. Tre Williams had 11, Darius Gabriel scored eight and Seth Martin contributed seven.
Zeke Blackwood scored 13 points for the Bulldogs, and Keyows Weaks had six.
