Rockwell Marshals basketball season wrap-up
by Dylan Beck
Both the girls and boys basketball teams had their senior nights on February 6 and 7.
In their final games of the season, the boys team went against the number one team in the region – Layton Christian Academy (LCA). It was a game that turned out to be LCA’s from the beginning. Rockwell played American Preparatory Academy (APA) on Wednesday and were upset; now they are going to state and playing as the 4th seed against Emery – a number one seed.
The girls had a different senior night game, with a 20 point win against APA. They played LCA on Friday and JV lost by a meager 2 points, while Varsity had a more-than-20-point deficit to this team looking to seek first place with a coin flip.
The Rockwell girls varsity team was made up of 5 seniors – 4 of whom were starters, while the Rockwell boys varsity team was made up of 7 seniors – 3 of whom were starters.
“I’m going to miss playing with my girls,” said Lynsie, a senior point guard and girls varsity team captain, “It’s going to be weird not playing next year.”
Between wins and losses it has been a great season and these seniors will be missed.
“My favorite quote says ‘I can accept failure, but I can’t accept not trying,’” said Tanner, a senior point guard and captain of the boys Varsity team. “I loved playing with my brothers.”
