SANDERS SHINES. Rocky Mount's B.J. Sanders picks up rushing yardage during last Friday's home victory over the South Johnston Trojans in the second round of the Class 3-A State Football Playoffs.
ROCKY MOUNT -- After two weeks of action, only one Nash County team remains in the Class 3-A State Football Playoffs -- the Rocky Mount Gryphons.
Rocky Mount, the regular season champion in the Big East Conference, was one of two county clubs to make the playoffs, with the other being league runner-up Southern Nash.
But after winning on the road in the first round at West Craven, Southern saw its exemplary campaign come to an end last Friday with a second-round road loss at powerhouse Eastern Alamance in Mebane.
