Rockets Dominate Garden Plain
by Aaron Moore
The boy’s basketball team played against Garden Plain Thursday night. Despite not suiting Koby Campbell due to a knee injury, the Rockets were able to grow above adversity and come out victorious. They started the game untouchable, making 21 points in the 1st quarter alone. The 2nd quarter wasn’t much different, and the Rockets went into the locker room up 47-24. Garden Plain was able to score more than the Rockets in the third quarter, thanks to a deep buzzer beating shot. The Rockets finished, winning 67-54 and improved their record to 7-4, the most wins in a season in Coach Shirley’s career at Rose Hill. In the game, D. Sapp went off, scoring 20 points, and D. Rapp was not far behind finishing with 15. The boys now play for 5th place on Saturday at 3:30 against Minneapolis. Minneapolis is the 6th seed and their record is currently 4-6 after their win against Winfield.
