LOCONTE COMMITS TO QUINCY UNIVERSITY

The Illinois Rockets are proud to announce that Regan LoConte (Lincoln-Way Central, 2020) has committed to play her collegiate basketball for Coach Jeni Garber and the Quincy University Hawks.
“Regan is first and foremost a great perimeter shooter,” commented Drew Ondik, Head Coach of the Illinois Rockets 17 Red squad. “But she has developed the ability to penetrate and get to the rim using either hand, utilizing her length (at 5’10”) to finish and/or get fouled. Additionally, Regan’s joy for the game, infectious personality and caring way makes her a sensational teammate and friend.”
                                                        The Illinois Rockets congratulate Regan and her parents, Colleen and Don, on her commitment to Quincy.

                         

KETTERMAN COMMITS TO PURDUE FORT WAYNE

The Illinois Rockets are proud to announce that Zoe Ketterman (Rosary HS, 2020) has committed to play her college basketball for Coach Niecee Nelson and the Purdue Fort Wayne Mastadons.

Zoe participated in the Rockets program for four summers.

“Zoe combines size and strength with the versatility of a small forward,” said Drew Ondik – Head Coach of the Illinois Rockets 17 Red team.  “She battled opponents taller than her all summer and she matched their toughness at every turn.  And Zoe’s perimeter shooting gave those opponents major fits.  Her teammates adored Zoe and Coach Brandon Stanciel (pictured above) and I appreciated the effort Zoe brought to every practice and game.”

The Rockets program congratulates Zoe and her parents, Samantha and Travis, and we wish her much success in her senior year at Rosary and in her college career at Purdue Fort Wayne.

             



HILL COMMITS TO BOWLING GREEN STATE UNIVERSITY

The Illinois Rockets are proud to announce that Olivia Hill (Fremd HS, 2020) has elected to play her collegiate basketball for Coach Robyn Fralick and the Bowling Green State University Falcons.                                 

Olivia, a 6’0” stretch four, has been in the Rockets program for 2 years, competing at the 17 Red level each season.

“Olivia’s high motor and versatility are what caught the eyes of the dozens of colleges who recruited her,” according to Rockets 17 Red Head Coach Drew Ondik.  “She is a superb defender, an active and tenacious rebounder and a triple threat offensive player – she has a great interior post play game, can dribble penetrate from the perimeter, and can hit the 3 from the arc.”

“As great of a player as Olivia is, she is an even better person,” added Coach Ondik.  “She possesses high end leadership qualities which help raise her teammates up.  She was an absolute joy to coach for two summers.”

The Illinois Rockets congratulate Olivia and her parents, Lezlie and Tim, on her commitment to Bowling Green State University.

Jaida, a 5’5” point guard, has been in the Rockets program for 2 years, competing at the 17 Red level each season.

“To say that Jaida has incredible speed is an understatement,” according to Rockets 17 Red Head Coach Drew Ondik.  “Her on-ball defense is best-in-class and her ability to push the ball in transition, regularly enabled our Rockets squad to score easy baskets.”

“Jaida is fearless and very tough, having played through some significant injuries and discomfort at times,” added Coach Ondik.  “She is a glue kid – her teammates feed off that toughness and off of her warm, inclusive personality.”

The Illinois Rockets congratulate Jaida and her parents, Donna and Fabian, on her commitment to DePauw University.

A three-year starter at Lincoln-Way Central HS, Abi garnered all-conference honors each season.  She also received IBCA all-state honorable mention recognition.

“Abi’s versatility and durability enabled her to lead our Illinois Rockets 17 Red squad in minutes played, rebounds and free throws made and attempted,” commented Drew Ondik, Rockets 17 Red head coach.  “She also finished second in points, assists and steals.  Abi’s impact went well beyond her statistical contributions, however, as she was a great teammate and an absolute joy to coach.”

The Illinois Rockets congratulate Abi and her parents, Jamie and Pat, on her commitment to the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.
