Rocksprings Junior High boys claim District basketball title, Little Lady Angoras earn 2nd place in close game
Rocksprings JH traveled to Utopia for their District Tournament, coming in as the number 1 seed. We played 3 games winning two of them against Comstock and Knippa. Championship game was a rematch of last year, against D’ Hanis. D’ Hanis won last year’s championship game. The boys had their game faces ready as they weren’t going to let D’ Hanis win it again. I saw the competitive mentality of these boys. The Billies came out and practiced hard all season, and it paid off as we won the district title. The boys had a long day and played with a lot of heart and they deserved to win the title. Throughout the season, the Billies played every single game with passion and teamwork. As a team we finished the season undefeated with a record of 14-0 with a District Championship. We played some good schools throughout the season, especially against the tough and physical Mason team. We beat Mason in overtime and that game set the tone for this tournament, I believe. I couldn’t be more proud of these boys. Early morning practices to workouts in athletics, the boys kept their dedication and drive to be great. This group of boys believed in each other and had their minds set on the district title; the undefeated record was just a bonus. The Billies who achieved this title of District Champions are: Cooper Grooms #1 Jadon Dobbins #2 Jeremiah Wilson # 3 Jay Magana #4 Ty Hendley #5 Jesse Romero #11 John Germany #12 Dwayne Rivera #15 Hunter Taylor #23 Beau Hernandez #25 Braden Goodwin #31 Juan Ortiz #35 Bruno Munoz #44 Jose Torres #50 Congratulations to the Billies!
