CFCC Women’s Basketball to Host Third Annual Carly Rae Classic Tournament
Wilmington, NC – The Cape Fear Community College (CFCC) Women’s Basketball is proud to announce the 3rd annual “Carly Rae Classic” tournament to kick off the season.

The tournament will occur on Friday, November 3, and Saturday, November 4, at the Joe and Barbara Schwartz Center (610 N. Front Street).
