The Rockmart High School Yellow Jackets tennis team was more than ready to open the Class AAA state playoffs at home on Wednesday. Unfortunately, the weather had other ideas.

An afternoon shower washed out the opener for the Yellow Jackets, and has forced the match to be rescheduled for Thursday at 2 p.m. at Rockmart High School.

The Yellow Jackets, the Region 4-AAA regular season and region tournament champions, will open state by hosting Southeast Bulloch.

Southeast Bulloch, also called the Yellow Jackets, are the No. 4 seed from Region 1-AAA.

If Rockmart wins, they would play Dodge County in round two.
