PIKEVILLE -- Rain suspended play in the season-ending Carolina 1-A Conference, while the Eastern Carolina 3-A tournament never began Wednesday afternoon.

The Carolina 1-A will resume action Friday at 9 a.m. on the Spring Creek High School courts. Competitors from regular-season champion North Duplin, Spring Creek and Rosewood are battling for spots in the N.C. High School Athletic Association 1-A east regional in Greenville.

Weather permitting, three ECC teams -- regular-season champion Eastern Wayne, tournament host Charles B. Aycock and Southern Wayne -- will play today at 3 p.m. on the Luke Vail Tennis Courts. The two finalists in singles and doubles qualify for the east 3-A regionals at Barton College in Wilson.
