CHAPEL HILL — The North Carolina High School Athletic Association released updated Average Daily Membership (ADM) figures for member schools Thursday.

The initial ADM figures were released Wednesday.

The ADM figures are used to subdivide football playing schools for only the football state playoffs by AA (big) and A (small) in each of the four classifications.

ADM numbers are one of multiple metrics used to complete state playoff brackets.

Eight football state playoff tournaments will be contested over the next few weeks.

Currituck has the largest ADM among schools in the Daily Advance’s coverage area with 983.

Pasquotank is second with 766, while Northeastern is third with 662.

Camden is fourth with 596, John A. Holmes in Edenton is fifth with 583 and Perquimans is sixth with 462.

According to projections by HighSchoolOT.com, Currituck (7-3) is expected to be placed in the Class 2AA state playoffs.

Northeastern (10-0) the Northeastern Coastal Conference champion, is expected to compete in the 2A state playoffs.

Albemarle Athletic Conference champion Edenton (9-1) is expected to be a high seed in the 1AA state playoffs.

Pasquotank (3-7), a Class 2A school, and 1A schools Camden (0-11) and Perquimans (1-10) are not expected to earn berths into the state playoffs in their respective classifications.

Other regional schools’ ADM numbers: First Flight (846), Hertford County (846), Bertie (675), Manteo (537), Gates (482) and Washington County (355).
