Rockets 5 Red Shootout Champs


May 14th-- The Illinois Rockets 5th Grade Girls Red team won the 6th Grade Division of the Romeoville Athletic Center One Day Shootout.  The girls played some of their best basketball of the season, heavily relying on a relentless defense and some timely shooting to pull out the tournament championship. The final game of the day paired the Rockets up against an undefeated Team Rose squad. After completing a very evenly matched first half, the Rockets  took a 2 point lead into the second half where they dialed up their defense and extended their two point half time lead to a six by the end of the game. Congratulations to the girls on an outstanding weekend of basketball!
