Girls Shutout T-Birds
The Lady Rockets grinded out a win against Circle on Thursday night. The Rockets were missing multiple girls to injury, but knew they still had a good shot at the win. Through the first half of the game, there were only four shots between both teams. The game was scoreless at half. In the second half team veteran, Dom Milsap, had the assist on a goal from Brooke Flowers. Flowers is still new to the game, but Coach Garver is very pleased with how far she has come in such a short time. The girls held off the T-Birds for the remainder of the game. Fortunately for the Rockets, Circle lost one of their players to a red card just after the only goal of the game. The Rockets will need all the momentum they can get going into a couple of hard away games in a row. The girls will play at Goddard Eisenhower on April 24th, and at Andover Central on the 27th.

Offense Dominates Buhler
The softball team dominated the Buhler Crusaders on Thursday evening. The ladies played fantastic at the plate, and blew away the Crusaders. In the first game of the night, the girls finished the game in the bottom of the 5th, after a huge 4th inning. Baldridge, Anderson, Wheeler, and Evans all had multiple hits in the five innings. In the second game, Buhler gave away multiple runs, with six errors in six and a half innings. With all of the errors, Rose Hill scored three runs in the 2nd, 3rd and 6th innings. Spreading out their ten runs over the entire game. The Rockets won their second matchup 10-2, to move back to a .500 record on the season. The girls’ next double-header will be on April 30th at Mulvane.
Split with Crusaders
The boys had a disappointing loss after mounting an almost-comeback to the fourth ranked team in the state during the first game. Buhler’s Wolf hit a homerun in the top of the first inning to put the Crusaders up by two in the 1st inning. Buhler scored two more in the top of the 2nd, and didn’t score the rest of the game. Sam Grant had the first RBI of the game, scoring Nate Scantlin in the bottom of the 4th. It wasn’t until the bottom of the 7th that the Rockets would make a run at the win. Matt Baker started the rally with a single. Brett Bonar and Sam Grant got two more runners in to cut the lead to one. Brett Bonar and Nate Scantlin were both left on the bases when Rose Hill had their final out of the game. The Rockets outhit the Crusaders 10-7, but the Crusaders walked away with the first win. The second game was a different story. After the Crusaders strung together a couple of runs in the top of the fourth, it was all Rockets. The Rockets scored two or three runs in each of the remaining innings, to win the game 7-2, and get sweet revenge from the first game. This matchup keeps the Rockets at .500 on the season, with one of their hardest matchups of the season out of the way. They will make up their game with Collegiate on Monday the 27th.
