"This is a pretty significant milestone and the process of setting and attaining these small goals will help us reach our bigger goals along the way," said Rosewood head coach Bill Edmundson. "Southwest Onslow ... this was a great match for us because they are very strong where we are strong, and it pushed our guys, which is what we needed.

"Southern Nash has developed into a very good rivalry. Coach (Eddie) Coble's boys are very physical and they give us a different look than we're used to encountering."

Nick Quillen, Behrend, Tyler Thompson, Tyler Dean, Quadre Ayers, Pipkin, Wooten and Taylor McGill emerged victorious against SW Onslow. Quillen, Thompson, Behrend, Ayers, Dean, Pipkin, McGill and Angel Jaramillo each claimed an individual win against Southern Nash.
