Senior Night For Volleyball
by Grant Scheer
Tuesday evening marked the last time the seniors would play on their home court during the regular season. This group of girls is quite special to say the least. They have won two state titles since their sophomore year and are on track to contend for a third this year. Most of the seniors have been playing together for several years before High School. They hosted El Dorado and Circle to conclude their regular season matches. Their first match was against El Dorado. The first set was a close 25-22 score with the Rockets on top. The team had a little more breathing room during the second set as they won 25-19. The Ladies had the next match off while El Dorado and Circle faced off. After getting a little break, the team came out firing against the Thunderbirds. The first set ended in a blowout with a score of 25-11, Rockets. The second set was a little more challenging for the team to get the win as it ended in a score of 25-20. They ended the regular season with an impressive 30-6 record. They will be hosting Sub-State on Saturday, October 20th beginning at 2 pm. The Rocket’s bracket will consist of Buhler, who defeated the Rockets in the first game of the season, as well as Nickerson and Wellington.
On To Regionals
by Grant Scheer
The Rocket soccer team traveled to Circle on Tuesday evening to face off with the Thunderbirds. During the first half, both teams struggled to find the back of the net. The score going into halftime was 0-0; however, that score didn’t last for long. The Rockets came out firing scoring just one minute into the second half. The goal came from a penalty kick by Caden Dinkel making it 1-0. Caden was not done there as he scored another goal with help from Zach Hoang. As time was nearing the final whistle, the score was 2-0 and out of reach for Circle. The team ended the regular season with a record of 7-9. They will compete in Regionals on October 22-27. The location of the first round game is currently undetermined.
