THOMASVILLE, N.C. – Senior legion head coach Rob Shore earned win No. 300 Thursday night in a 6-3 victory over Kannapolis.
“It’s been a blessing to be in the position I’m in,” Shore said. “We’ve had some very great teams and talented players come through here who have lifted our program from very little to respectable. Thank you to our owner Greg who trusted me in 2008 to take it over.”
Since taking over the reigns in 2008, Shore’s 300 wins have come in the form of six Area III Championships to go along with one state runner-up finish in 2015.
The HiToms used a six-run, second inning to inevitably hold off Kannapolis as a pair of High Point Christian Cougars clinched win No. 300 for Shore on the mound.
Sam Sapp earned the win with five innings of stellar work, surrendering one run on zero hits and fanned three. Carter Bass was credited with the save in relief.
Post 87 improved to 5-1 on the summer with Thursday’s win and will be back in action Sunday.
The HiToms will look to avenge their only loss of the season Sunday on the road at Randolph County Post 45. First pitch from McCrary Park is set for 7 p.m.
