E.V. Patterson

Patterson led Friendship HS to seven straight NCHSAA State Titles (1914-1920).

Note: The town of Hillsboro voted in the late 1960s to change its name back to its original, historic spelling of Hillsborough.

The 1917 results are from The Alamance gleaner, April 26, 1917.
Thanks to Brett Honeycutt for finding this in newspaper archives.
