Last Game For Lady Rockets
The Rose Hill Rocket girls’ basketball team hosted the Mulvane Wildcats for the semifinals of 4A Substate on Thursday evening. Mulvane and Rose Hill had split the season series with the Lady Wildcats winning the first game by 12 points and then the Lady Rockets returning the favor with their own 12-point victory just three weeks ago. A close game was expected and it started out that way with the Lady Rockets gaining a quick lead. The game was tied 6-6 before the bottom fell out for the Lady Rockets. The Lady Wildcats went on a 13-0 run to push the score to 19-6 early in the second quarter. The Lady Rockets were only able to score eight more points the entire half while the Lady Wildcats were on fire and made almost everything they threw up. The Lady Rockets found themselves trailing 32-14 at halftime. Starting the second half, the Lady Rockets attempted to cut into the lead but were unable to, as the shots just didn’t fall, losing the game 29-52. Senior Autumn Lipscomb led the team during the last game of the season with 16 points. The Lady Rockets end the season with a 7-14 record as seniors Lipscomb, Kate Shields, Paige Decker, Kylie Simpson, Jaelyn Glennemeier and Cristina Sainz played their last game for the Lady Rockets and will be missed next year.
