Yellow Jackets down Wildcats in weekend clash
Roanoke Rapids rallied from an opening-set surprise on Saturday to level Big East 2A/3A rival Bunn, 3-1, in first-round play of the N.C. High School Athletic Association 2A playoffs.
The triumph, earned in 14-25, 25-19, 25-21, 25-17 fashion, earned the Jackets (13-5) a 6 p.m. reservation today at high-powered Camden County, which has dropped just one set this fall. Bunn finished the 2021 season with a 12-6 record.
