Post game comments from Jackets head coach Mark Snead, "I am really proud of how the guys bounced back after our loss to South Granville the other night. Colby and Jordan threw really well and shut Franklinton down. We had a really good approach at the plate tonight. We didn't try to do to much. Just make solid contact and it paid off. Everyone played well and did a great job tonight."
The Yellow Jackets improve to 5-2 on the season and 3-1 in the Northern Carolina Conference. The next game for RRHS will be on Tuesday at NCSSM. Game time is set for 4pm.
