First Tournament Win of the Year for the Junior Lady Rockets

Hannah Miller, Staff Writer

The Junior Lady Rockets win the Okawville Round Robin tournament.  Their first game was by sure the least exciting game out of the three games they played.  We won by a lot, we took the lead early and never looked back. That game was played on October 29.  Their second game was a little closer, but still not a nail-biting game. It was a neck and neck game the whole first half.  We then pulled away with a strong lead and kept it for the rest of the game. This game was played on October 31. The Championship game was a very close game.  This game was played on November 2. There was no for sure winner at the beginning the game the score was back and forth. We were up and then they were up. At the end of the half, Alayna Kraus pulls up and shoots a buzzer-beating three to put us in the lead at the half.  We came out strong in the second half to regain a four-point lead, but it was still a very tough game. The fourth quarter we gained a stronger lead but still not a big enough lead to win. We pulled out the win in this very tough game. This was Okawville junior high girls’ second time winning the tournament.
