Asheboro, baseball

Adams has been a boost for the Blue Comets in several roles on the baseball team.

He has been a pitcher and outfielder.

When the Blue Comets defeated host Southwestern Randolph 3-2 last week, Adams started the game on the mound and later returned to the rubber to notch the final out. He was summoned in the bottom of the seventh inning with the bases loaded and posted a strikeout to end the game. He recorded a total of nine strikeouts.

After a diet of non-conference games, Asheboro was scheduled to launch Mid-Piedmont Conference play this week.

Last year for the Blue Comets, Adams batted .311.

Adams also has been a key contributor in American Legion baseball for Randolph County Post 45.
