R-P 8th Grade Team

The 8th Grade Lady Rockets finished the season against Grand Haven last night. On a night when shots did not seem to fall the team found a way to sneak out a victory. The Rockets missed many opportunities in the first half but great defense led to a 11 to 6 half time lead. The ladies pushed the lead to 20 to 12 in the 3rd quarter. Grand Haven then made a run and took the lead late. A big shot by Sara Carlson and key free throws by Hope Latsch helped the Rockets to a 2 point victory 28-26. The Lady Rockets ended the season 5 and 7. The girls will celebrate their season with a pizza party in Mr. Pallett's room right after school today. Taylor Long had 1 point. Carlee Bowen had 2 points. Amani Starr had 2 points. Maya VandenBosch had 2 points. Sophia Wathen had 2 points. Hope Latsch had 5 points. Sara Carlson had 6 points. Emma Lamphere had a game high 8 points. Other team members who contributed throughout the season are Keeley Cole, Jersi Bilek, Mallorie Messer and Jayla Trepanier.
