PIKEVILLE -- Aycock concluded Area II Division play by splitting a doubleheader against West Johnston the Charles B. Aycock diamond Wednesday evening.

West Johnston seized a 4-3, eight-inning victory in the opener. Bryant Hill and Jordan Quinn combined for a complete-game win as Aycock prevailed 6-1 in the nightcap.

Aycock (5-10) drew the No. 4 seed for the playoffs and opposes regular-season champion Wilson Post 13 at 11 a.m. Saturday on the Wilson Fike High diamond.

Conner Narron doubled in a 3-for-4 effort in game one. Evan Medford, Jackson Wooten (RBI) and Jordan Carr each provided a single.

Hill tossed two innings of three-strikeout relief, but suffered the pitching loss in relief of starter Jay Rose. Rose yielded two earned runs and fanned nine West Johnston batters in a six-inning stint.

In game two, Rose collected two hits and scored twice. Medford batted 1-for-3 and also scored two runs. Carr doubled and delivered two RBI in two at-bats.

Wooten and Hill each drove in a run. David Gurganus drew a walk and added a hit in two official plate appearances.

Aycock concludes regular-season play at home today against Wayne County, which qualified for the postseason from the Area I Division.
