The Spartans caped of the Cap 8 season with two big wins against conference foes Millbrook and Wake Forest. Sanderson adjusted to the weather and trounced Wake Forest 49-21 @ Wake Forest on senior day in front of the entire Cap 8 conference. The Spartans blew out every team in the conference to claim the 4th consecutive Cap 8 conference championship and with the controversial 3 way tie last year there was doubt who the best team really was. This year there is no doubt the Sanderson Spartans are the elite of the Cap 8. Sanderson has defeated Millbrook 5 out of the last 7 meetings and has defeated Wake Forest 7 out of the last 7. The Spartans travel to Knightdale for the first and second rounds of the state playoffs.
