WELLSTON — Just like the movie with Jack Nicholson, for the Rock Hill Redwomen Monday’s season opener was “As Good As It Gets.”

Rock Hill had a good day in all phases of the game as they blanked the Wellston Lady Golden Rockets 8-0 Monday.

“It was a good win. Bobbi did a good job pitching and we played good defense and we had some good hitting. We played some people off the bench and they did a good job, too,” said Redwomen coach Mary Harper.
