After falling earlier in the season at Trinity of Fayetteville, Wayne Country Day returned the favor with a 55-42 victory over Trinity on Monday night.

The Chargers (9-2 overall), currently ranked fifth in the N.C. Independent School Athletic Association, were led by Floronta Wynn who scored 15 points. Jeff Franklin added 13 points. Reco McCarter had nine and Landon Case finished with eight points.

Trinity (6-2) entered the game ranked third among NCISAA member schools.

"Our last four or five ball games have been strenuous," Wayne Country Day head coach Terry Jones said. "Along with our most recent wins, we did some learning on the job. That paid heavy dividends for us tonight."
