Rockets Defeat #6 Garden Plain
The Rockets played their first Thursday double header this past week splitting the night with a loss to Cheney 14-25, 18-25 and a comeback, three set win against a Class 2A #6 ranked Garden Plain team 9-25, 25-20, 25-16. When asked about this week’s games Coach Mock said, “We are not always playing up to our potential, but when we do come together and play as a team, we are a fun group to watch. We played four close games this week and pulled out two wins, one of them being against a ranked Garden Plain team. We will continue to push to get better.” In the two games this past Thursday, both Dayleigh Barger and Payton Jackson led the team in kills with 12. Mandi Heinz had 20 digs on the night, getting her closer to Aspen Goetz (1078 career digs); Heinz now has 1036 during her career. The Rockets are set to play again next Tuesday at El Dorado with Clearwater.
