On January 23, the Jr. High Boys basketball team began play in regionals, hosted by in Luechtefeld Gymnasium. The first game was set to be the Okawville Rockets against Holy Trinity. As the game began both teams fought fearlessly to avoid elimination. Holy Trinity stayed ahead the whole game, but that did not deter the Rockets. More than once the score was only separated by one point. Heading into the last two minutes, Okawville was once again within one point. The hometown Rockets could not hold on losing 40-35. Holy Trinity went on to be defeated by the eventual regional champions, the Bartelso Braves.
