The 7th and 8th grade teams will open their season Nov. 10 at home against rival team Virginia City. The games will begin at 3:30 p.m. at the Junior High Gym.
Both the 7th and 8th grade teams are three time defending champions of the Sagebrush League. Coach Summerbell has high expectations for his teams as they seek a 4th consecutive championship. Along with the regular ten game seasons, the Rockets are hoping to schedule additional games against Dayton, Silver Stage, and Yerington.
Practices have been going well as twenty-eight boys have turned out. The 8th grade had eleven boys start out. Two are out because of grades and injuries but hope to return in a couple of weeks. The 7th grade has only five boys, but there are nine 6th graders and four 5th graders to fill out the squad. There were no cuts made so we encourage all the boys to keep practicing and are given an opportunity to improve.
Come out and support the young Rockets in their opener against Virginia City on Nov. 10. The Rockets will travel to Bridgeport on Nov. 13. Go Rockets!
