FOOTBALL


Ashe County revealed its 2013 football schedule, which includes two home nonconference games.


After opening the season at North Surry on Aug. 23, the Huskies play border rival Watauga on Aug. 30. Ashe plays at R.J. Reynolds on Sept. 6 and returns home on Sept. 13 to face Hibriten. Both Watauga and Hibriten play in the Northwestern Conference, a split 3A/4A league.


The Huskies are open on Sept. 20 before beginning Mountain Valley Conference games at Alleghany on Sept. 27. Ashe hosts back-to-back games on Oct. 4 against Wilkes Central and West Wilkes one week later on Oct. 11.


Ashe then plays back-to-back games on the road at East Wilkes on Oct. 18 and at North Wilkes on Oct. 25. The Huskies close out the season at home Nov. 1 against Starmount and Nov. 8 against Elkin.


Ashe has two warmup scrimmages before the regular season. The Huskies scrimmage at Surry Central on Aug. 10 and at East Surry on Aug. 16.


The junior varsity schedule is similar to the varsity slate with two exceptions. The Huskies play junior varsity games at the opposite sites of the varsity on Thursday of the same week, and the JVs won’t play Hibriten since the varsity game is an endowment game.


The junior varsity will also participate in the preseason scrimmages with the varsity.

 

BASKETBALL


Ashe County will open its basketball season with two games at home, but will take to the road for four games away from West Jefferson, according to its 2012-13 basketball season schedule.


Ashe County hosts Avery on Nov. 19 and North Surry on Nov. 22 in nonconference games. The Huskies also host rival Watauga on Dec. 13 and Mount Airy in an endowment game on Dec. 16 that is for the varsity only.


The Huskies also play at Hibriten on Nov. 26, at North Surry on Dec. 3 and at Watauga on Dec. 6. After playing a Mountain Valley Conference game at Elkin on Dec. 10, the Huskies won’t return to the road until its final nonconference game of the season Dec. 17 at Avery.


Ashe’s varsity teams also hosts Hibriten, Watauga, East Forsyth and Forbush in the Colvard Oil Holiday Classic, which is scheduled for Dec. 27-28. The Ashe junior varsity teams host the Miller Insurance/Dr. Pepper JV Tournament on Nov. 29-30.


Ashe’s MVC schedule intensifies Jan. 3 with a road date at Starmount. The Huskies’ final 12 games in 2013 are MVC showdowns. The league tournament begins Feb. 17.
