Ladies Win Final Road Game
The girls fought off the El Dorado Wildcats in their final road game of the regular season on Tuesday night. The Ladies started the game strong, outscoring the Wildcats 17-6 in the first quarter. El Dorado didn’t let the game get out of hand the second quarter, dominating the Rockets and cutting their lead to two points. Anna Van Driel controlled the 3rd quarter, scoring 14 of the Rockets 21 points. With a lead of ten at the end of the 3rd quarter, the Rockets were able to hold off the Wildcats the final quarter, with a final score of 53-41. Come out on Thursday night when the Rockets play the Augusta Orioles. All of the Senior basketball players, swimmers, and cheerleaders will be recognized.

Too Little Too Late
The Rocket basketball team had a good chance at stringing a couple wins together on Tuesday night after their Buhler upset last Friday. The 1st quarter was evenly matched, with El Dorado coming out with a one-point lead. Through the middle of the game the Rockets seemed to be missing the fire they had against Buhler. They seemed a little slow on all their moves. With El Dorado’s lead growing through the 2nd and 3rd quarter, the Rockets were down 33-39 at the start of the 4th. The Wildcats dominated the start of the 4th, gaining a 17-point lead on the Rockets. Then, late in the game Alek Santo started the best run the Rockets could have given. Santo’s 14 points in the final quarter weren’t enough to lead the Rockets to a win. The Rockets lost to the Wildcats 54-57, but will look to finish with a win against Augusta. Come support our Rocket basketball program on Senior Night this Thursday.
