Seven Going To State
by Grant Scheer
The Rose Hill Wrestling Team competed in their Regional Tournament on Friday and Saturday in Pratt. Due to icy weather conditions the team had to drive up Thursday night instead of Friday morning. The tournament started on Friday at 2 o’clock and finished up late evening on Saturday. Overall, the Rockets qualified seven for the State Tournament and took 4th as a team. Seven is the most Rose Hill has taken to State since 1997. The qualifiers include Kyle Sackett, Keegan Beavers, Peyton Besco, Cole Daughettee, David Leck, Grant Scheer, and Clayton Epley. The team is looking to do some damage as their goal is to place top 10 in the state. The opening ceremony will kick off at 9:30 a.m. with wrestling planned to start at 10:00 a.m.
Boys Upset the Spartans
by Braden Geer
After the Lady Rockets beat the Lady Spartans the boys warmed up to take on the Spartans. The boys’ team had a battle in front of them; prior to the game the Rockets were 0-8 against the Spartans in the last fifteen years. The Rockets excelled on the boards giving themselves additional shots. The Rockets saw several players’ put up high numbers in the point column. Seniors Dalton Rapp and Konner Barron put up 12 and 9 points, respectively. Junior Koby Campbell went on a tear, scoring 22 points to give them a lead over the Spartans. Barron later went on to say, “We just dominated from the start to the finish.” Be sure to come support the Rockets as they take on Andale at home on Tuesday on Senior Night.
Lady Rockets Win at Collegiate
by Braden Geer
On Friday the Rocket programs traveled to Collegiate to take on the Spartans at their Senior Night. The Rockets stuck it to the Spartans; they hopped up on them early scoring 16 to the Spartans 11. The Rockets proceeded to outscore the Spartans each quarter. The Lady Rockets played fundamental defense and tried and true offense throughout the game. Even in the later quarters the Rockets kept pressure on getting themselves several offensive rebounds and second chance shots to hold onto their lead. Offensively, Senior Emily Adler led the team with 23 points. The Lady Rockets showed heart and played hard to win Friday and add another win to their record. On Tuesday the Rocket programs will host Andale for the Rockets senior night. Be sure to come out and support the seniors in their final regular season game at home.
Kalp In Topeka
by Grant Scheer
Hayden Kalp was the only Rocket Swimmer at the State Swimming Meet in Topeka this past weekend. Kalp competed on Friday in the 100-yard Backstroke. He placed 25th with a time of 1:01.78. Kalp, like I’ve said several times, was an outstanding leader for his team over the past 4 years and will be greatly missed. He has set a path for his younger teammates that will hopefully follow in his footsteps. Hayden will be attending Washburn University to further his education.
